Crazy Otto is Coming Back – Sort Of

During the early 80s, Pac-Man dominated the video game scene. Originally, a game by the name of Crazy Otto was devised as an improved version of Pac-Man by General Computer Corporation.

The game was purchased by Midway and then transformed into what eventually became Ms. Pac-Man. Prototypes of Crazy Otto are still known to exist, however, they’re not readily attainable online.

Developer Extend Mode has now come to Steam Greenlight with a game by the name of Crazy Otto. It features the same weird Pac-Man with legs motif and obvious inspirations, but is presumably a brand new product rather than an actual ancient ROM.

It’s a bit amusing, albeit confusing, to check the page which provides a fictitious account of Crazy Otto’s arcade origins.
