The Evolution of the Digital Comic Avatar

The video game has incorporated personalisation since the beginning back in the 1970s. The revolution of arcade games from Pac-man, Space Invaders and Atari Football all allowed the user to enter his name or initials on the scoreboard as the pride of place. By the early 21st century the home gaming systems evolved and the user's name and portrait photo could be included in the rankings of the game. Today it’s common to see the players portrait on the actual game hero. The need for an Avatar in these alternate reality worlds of gaming adventure is strong especially amongst teens. The digital comic has lagged behind with little or no adoption of emerging technologies. Until now.
