- It has been reported today that Dave Roberts will be stepping down as CEO from PopCap Games effective next week, as the studio responsible for Plants vs. Zombies and Peggle plans to get back to their development roots for 2014. In addition, chief game designer Jason Kapalka will also been leaving the PvZ studio shortly. Taking over Roberts' position will be the last remaining co-founder of PopCap, John Vechey. Will this usher in a new era for the popular developer of casual games?If anything, it seems that PopCap's plans for the future are a little bit mixed right now. On the one hand, Vechey has been quoted in an exclusive interview with GamesBeat as saying "PopCap's mission right now is to create the greatest mobile game studio in the world, and we're going to do that by only making games that are beloved by players." Yet in the same interview, it is also stated that PopCap plans to expand beyond the realm of mobile going forward, in attempt to "get back to the place where we used to be.""For a while, it was looking like PopCap's efforts might be shifting to exclusively focus on free-to-play mobile games, but now that's looking less likely thanks to these recent comments. PopCap certainly had an interesting 2013 as far as game releases were concerned. They first caused controversy by releasing the long-awaited Plants vs. Zombies 2: It's About Time exclusively on iOS platforms, with an Android release coming a few months after, and PC gamers still anxiously waiting for their turn at the game. And then in an even more surprising move, the highly-anticipated Peggle 2 was released exclusively for Microsoft's next-gen home gaming console, the Xbox One.But regardless of what systems they ultimately appear on, more original IPs and sequels from PopCap in 2014 could never be a bad thing: at least if you're planning on getting any work done this year (I've lost days of my life just to Peggle alone!).
- After countless game delays, a soft-launch in China at the end of the summer, and rumors that Apple paid PopCap a nice chunk of change to keep the game an iOS exclusive for its initial launch window, Plants vs. Zombies 2: It's About Time is finally available for download worldwide on Android devices today. Insert "it's about time" related joke here.The free-to-play sequel to PopCap's smash hit flower-defense game finds everyone's favorite zombies traveling through a number of different time periods, and puts a few new spins on the traditional gameplay, like giving your plants powerful Plant Food or activating a number of touch-based super moves when you really find yourself up to your neck in the undead. And of course, all of the brainz you could possibly ask for."Plants vs. Zombies 2: It's About Time can be downloaded for free on your Android device right now via the Google Play Marketplace.
- Gaming Heads, the popular manufacturer of quality video game-related action figures and toys, has announced a new licensing partnership with PopCap today: resulting in the creation of a few new exclusive statues based on characters from PopCap's beloved Plants vs. Zombies franchise.The limited edition PvZ statues will be in depiction of two of the flower defense game's most iconic characters: the Peashooter plant, and of course, a brain-hungry Zombie. Gaming Heads has also announced that as a further exclusive to each model, fans will be able to purchase more limited versions that include a road cone hat to dress up your Zombie with, and an extra pea bullet to fit in your Peashooter's mouth."You can catch a glimpse of the 9" Peashooter and 13" Zombie right within this page, and they certainly seem to be some of the most realistic-looking PvZ memorabilia that I've seen in a while, in really capturing the look and feel of the characters from the game perfectly.
- We've been hearing a few low-key rumblings about an official Plants vs. Zombies board game for quite some time now, and it looks like all that waiting has finally paid off this morning! In partnership with Hasbro, Inc., renowned game developer PopCap has pulled the lid off a PvZ-skinned version of the classic world domination board game RISK, and has made the wonderful blend of franchises available for purchase right at this very moment.The double-sided game board should be immediately familiar to fans of the popular "plant defense" series of video games, with one side depicting the all-new town of Brainsborough (which looks like something taken straight out of Plants vs. Zombies Adventures), and the other side reserved for an iconic PvZ backyard scene. The two-player game will also offer three different ways to compete in head-to-head matches, including Tower Defense, Mission Objective, and Total Domination.
- For all the anxious Android owners out there who have been patiently waiting all summer to get their hands on the highly anticipated release of PopCap's Plants vs. Zombies 2: It's About Time, we might finally have an answer as to what's been taking so long. Allegedly, Apple has been paying PopCap to intentionally delay the Android release of the game, in order to extend the window of iOS exclusivity for PvZ 2 that Apple has been enjoying ever since the game's official worldwide launch this past August.Giant Bomb broke the news of this interesting piece of information earlier this morning, after watching an "internal town hall meeting" for Electronic Arts. During the presentation, head of EA Labels Frank Gibeau was reported as saying "Apple gave us a truckload of money to delay the Android version [of Plants vs. Zombies 2]." The game in question has only been released on Android devices in China so far, where it is said to currently be outselling the iOS version by "six-to-one" in that specific market."It should also be noted that paid exclusivity deals are not all that uncommon in the competitive games industry, with most big releases on home gaming consoles getting some form of extra content that is exclusive to a single company for a predetermined amount of time. What is intriguing is that Apple now seems to be taking a much more aggressive approach in its own gaming deals against the competing Google platform, and that this same kind of industry competition has now seeped its way into the mobile games space.
- PopCap has released a mysterious teaser video today that may very well be the only clue we have right now as to what the first free Plants vs. Zombies 2: It's About Time title update has in store. The trailer in question features lots of corn, and a zombie or two of course.
- Game developer extraordinaire PopCap and popular construction toy company K'NEX have announced a new partnership this morning to bring a new line of K'NEX toys based on the beloved Plants vs. Zombies franchise. Now fans of the popular "flower" defense series will be able to build their very own real-live neighborhoods as seen in the game, and cover their K'NEX front lawns with some of their favorite anti-zombie defense measures: the plants!
- Just when you thought Plants vs. Zombies Adventures couldn't possibly contain any more brains, a little thing called BrainBall comes along. The social reimagining of Popcap's iconic "flower defense" game Plants vs. Zombies has been one of 2013's most pleasant surprises, in taking the traditional gameplay of PvZ and seamlessly translating it into a Facebook medium that was both fresh and addictive. But now Popcap has begun to introduce an exciting new competitive game mode called BrainBall into the mix, which is sure to change the way you think about brains and where you should keep them forever!
