Introducing PAC-MAN™ COMMUNITY, a super social reimagining of the all-time arcade classic designed to bring generations of people on Facebook together in one of the most beloved video games of all time, running from December 2021 to February 2023. Produced in partnership with BANDAI NAMCO Entertainment and developer Early Cross, PAC-MAN COMMUNITY was a free Facebook Gaming exclusive Instant Game that created rich social interactions between Facebook’s global audience. Players were able to Play, Watch, and Connect with PAC-MAN™ like never before in the world’s biggest communal arcade experience. Get a deeper dive into the game and its development from Genvid CEO and co-founder Jacob Navok in his Medium essay.


PLAY Mode offered a range of gameplay options from the original classic PAC-MAN to the real-time co-op Community Mode where players or Facebook Gaming creators could invite up to three friends or community members to play along with them through an endless mix of pre-selected mazes and user-created mazes. Players could also host or play quick matches from a selection of over 28,000 user created mazes.


CREATE Mode’s super slick, mobile-optimized maze creator let anyone easily generate their own custom mazes, which were shareable with their friends AND the entire community. This creative tool went beyond simple sharing, as user-built mazes can also be featured in the special 24/7 WATCH Mode, where they’d be rendered in 3D and streamed worldwide.


Players could join in the world’s biggest collective arcade experience in WATCH Mode, a 24/7 massively interactive live event (MILE) that pulled mazes from the community and rendered them in 3D, letting the audience buff AI PAC-MAN or the ghosts in a perpetual battle for maze mastery. As viewers collectively participated they unlocked achievements that offered dozens of new features and tools in CREATE Mode.


Built with Facebook Gaming creators in mind, we made it easy for them to invite their fans to join their matches. By using the Feature Link on Facebook Live, creators could bring audience members directly into their game session in real time to help in clearing mazes. With no additional downloads or installs, viewers were able to instantly join in on the fun with just a simple tap.


Published by Genvid Entertainment, PAC-MAN COMMUNITY was a free, multiplayer instant game that ran on a wide range of mobile and desktop devices, no download or installation needed, with only a modest internet connection required to play the game.
