This game is not the same, but it's fairly similar, and has some profanity and violence. Was this game the origin of that pac-man story, or is it parallel development, or do they have a common source?
In any case, an interesting game from a famous author who has disavowed all of their speed-IFs.
(Spoiler - click to show)Pac-Man is a junkie, haunted by ghostly apparitions; he needs a ”power pill” to save his day, drive his ghosts away, and go to junkie heaven. I’m sure the author could have made more of this particular idea; but, as it stands, it’s no more than a mere sketch, with no real choices for Pac-Man to make along the brief way to the ending: you go one way you win, you go another you die. The writing is as good as it comes, though.
Very, very short; no puzzles.
But the fact that Pacman is portrayed as a junkie makes it worth playing the game through once. The writing is really fresh, and the game is funny in a darkly comedic way.
Zero replay value, however.
If you enjoyed Pac-Man...
