Pac-Man Is A Kafkaesque Nightmare

Pac-Man seems like it has a pretty simple storyline- hungry round-headed dude goes on a munchies tear, which upsets the resident ghosts who have sworn to protect the pellets they use to propagate their unique spectral species.

Oh, and sometimes the ghosts make themselves some tasty food like pretzels or glazed cherries which Pac-Man proceeds to gobble up like a fiend.

Turns out I've had the tale of that Pac attacker all wrong since childhood, because according to this radical strip by SMBC comics the Pac-Man storyline is “like Kafka wrote a Lovecraft story”.

Now I'm going to have nightmares about Pac-Man!
