Back in 2010, Control invited Pac-Man creator Toru Iwatani to come and speak at a conference in The Netherlands. On a bus trip during his visit, he pulled out an innocent looking folder. Innocent, it was not. The folder contained the original sketches for his revolutionary game. As it turned out, this is the very first photograph of these sketches. Inspiring, aren’t they?
