Pac-Man Adventures -- Don Bluth's Character and Environment designs
Bluth, Don--1937 -
In 2004, Don Bluth was hired as a consultant for Namco to assist in designing a game with the working title Pac-Man Adventures. Bluth created character designs and environments for this project. The small collection of materials found for this project include art work, notes on game design, contract information, back story notes on the characters, descriptions of the various environments, correspondence and emails between Namco, Don Bluth Films, and Blitz Games. No information is included as to whether Bluth’s designs and characters were used. Pac-Man Adventures was not released, but Pac-Man World 3 contains a lot of the elements from the Pac-Man project Bluth worked on. From the emails, it is known that Don Bluth designed all art work coded DB, and other artwork was from Blitz. Here is some of the art work from the project. We have chosen to only display those from Don Bluth Films, coded DB-D for Don Bluth-Design.
The items here are mostly pencil drawings or photocopies of pencil drawings. The photocopies are hand colored with markers. These items were found in a binder and are on regular letter size paper. Some are labeled and others have information written on the drawing.
