I’m very, very disappointed in all of you. This news broke yesterday and NOBODY TOLD ME.
Spotted at Toyfair by Kotaku was… was… I can barely say it. It’s just too beautiful to be true. Was…
Was a Plants vs Zombies boardgame. At last, the divided PC/boardgames mind of RPS is united.
It’s only at prototype stage for now, which means we have to wait until whatever on Earth a ‘Fall’ is this year. I’m going to predict we’ll see it in Autumn.
Two-to-four players, with multiple boards, dozens of cards and a general ongoing tussle between the titular chlorophyll- and rot-based factions. I.e. it’s making the game truly competitive, and hopefully co-operate too.
It’s from a firm called Screenlife, and there isn’t too much info available as yet. You can at least find a little more detail, including the rough structure of how it plays, here. Mashable, meanwhile, reckons it’ll be $20.
Disappointingly, it won’t come with any miniatures. Oh well. I remain 100% grateful.
Perhaps this a herald of more videogame-based boardgames. This is, of course, your opportunity to present your pitches below.
