Play as an eight-legged freak in Plants vs Zombies designer’s next game

The designer behind the massively popular Plants vs. Zombies, George Fan, has opened a new studio and left his old toys behind. With the gang at All Yes Good, he's working on a full version of Octogeddon, a game he started during a game jam. It's a common concept: you play as a giant mutant octopus, growing weird new fightlimbs.

Feature: Dishonorable Dining

Perusing The Main Menu At The In-Game Cafe

Hey, good to see ya, how ya doin'? Take a seat anyplace you like - we got window seats, we got booths, we got stools over here at the counter. I'd keep shy of the table just at the back there - it's reserved, on a strictly unofficial basis, and the guy who plants hisself there most days ain't exactly particular about whose keister he…

Have You Played… Plants Vs Zombies?

Have You Played? is an endless stream of game recommendations. One a day, every day of the year, perhaps for all time. I’m struggling to think of a game’s name that has gone from being one of eliciting such joy to such uninterest. The flagship title of PopCap’s collapse from astonishingly successful casual game developer to the fragmented remains left behind after an EA-destructo-buyout, Plants…

Oh: Plants vs. Zombies Garden Warfare 2 Announced

What I'd wanted next from Plants vs. Zombies was a tower defence sequel not all guffed up with mobile microtransaction-y stuff. What EA gave us was a third-person multiplayer shooter, Garden Warfare. I'm sure they thought they knew something we didn't. They still do, as EA today announced Plants vs. Zombies Garden Warfare 2 [official site]. The sequel will take the action to suburbia, bringing…

Battlefield 3 And Plants Vs Zombies Free On Origin

Battlefield: Hardline is mere weeks away from being shown off for the first time, and Battlefield 4 just got microtransactions. What's an already overwhelmed Battlefield neophyte to do? Why, dive into a different Battlefield altogether, of course. I mean, I guess that's rationale behind EA's decision to make BF3 100 percent free as part of Origin's On The House program, and - while things haven't…

Dark Side Of The Prune: Plants Vs Zombies Garden Warfare

The PC release date trailer for green-thumbed shooter Plants Vs Zombies Garden Warfare is utterly preposterous. Of course it is, you might be thinking, it's a video promoting a third-person shooter Plants Vs Zombies spin-off. The trailer doesn't show the actual game though, choosing instead to put the Origin logo front and centre. This is a video in which a zombie logs into Origin, has…

Humble Weekly Sale Offers PopCap Games For Charity

This week's Humble Weekly sale is a PopCap bundle, but with an added twist: EA are giving 100% of their cut to charity. Two charities, in fact, between which you can choose your split: the V Foundation for Cancer Research, and The Melanoma Research Alliance which specifically fights skin cancer. Pay more than $1 and you'll get a copy of Peggle (download size: one Peggle),…

And Mulch More: Plants vs Zombies 2 Mere Months Away

Happy face: PopCap's Plants vs Zombies 2 will apparently arrive this Summer. I love PvZ. I want more PvZ. Worried face: PopCap now belong to EA, who want to put microtransactions in everything they can. I'm crossing fingers, toes, unmentionables and internal organs that PvZ2 can somehow escape this disease and just be a lovely, complete little game of its own.

Still Rotting On Your Lawn: Plants vs Zombies 2

Best of all the news: Popcap have announced Plants vs Zombies 2. Worst of all the news: We won't get to play the vegetation vs vegetative tower defence sequel until late Spring next year. Medium news: basically no details apart from that and "hordes of new Plant and Zombie types." The press release makes up for it by saying "and mulch more" though.

PopCap Are Getting Weirder: New PvZ Song

You know the phrase, "more money than sense"? PopCap have an awful lot of money... Plants Vs. Zombies continues to be a sensation on every format it touches - I've heard that it's soon coming out for digital calculators and answer-phones - which is presumably bringing in enough money to pay enough people to create something as spectacularly silly as the latest... trailer? Video? Proof…

The Very Important List Of PC Games, Part 4/5

Young people. Good grief. Your ignorance is as plain as those spots on your greasy face. Don't you know anything? Can't you be bothered to learn anything? Did you even read the words of esteemed colleagues Rossignol, Walker and Smith detailing the first three parts of this Olympian list of The Most Important PC Games Of All Time? I am quite sure that I, Deacon…

Crush Your Gnomes: PvZ Garden Ornaments

Rock, Paper, Shotgun is always first with the news. Apart from when we're last. For instance, this Plants Vs. Zombies garden ornament collection first appeared in March last year. But I don't care, because I just saw it for the first time, and no one else I've shown has seen it before, and it's gorgeous. So there. They're the work of a collection of people…

Plants Vs. Zombies Quest In WoW: Cataclysm

Bless. As we know, World of Warcraft: Cataclysm is bringing all kinds of apocalyptic change to Azeroth, and what could be more apocalyptic than a quest recreating PopCap's Plants vs. Zombies? The new Peacebloom vs Ghouls quest can be found in the Hillsbrad Foothills, and is such an absurdly detailed recreation of PvZ (albeit with only 6 plants) that the whole thing must have been…

New PvZ Zombie: The Grave… And Beyond!

That was quick. Following on from yesterday's news that the Dancing Zombie is being removed from Plants Vs Zombies due to the legal wroth of the Jackson family, the muddy-funsters at PC Gamer reveal the new dancing zombie, which basically looks like I did when I had hair and went to the perpetually-70s-stuck nightclubs in Stafford. And let's celebrate this momentous event with an entirely…

Weekend Gossip: Spore RPG? PVsZ 2?

Just catching up with the Internet chitter-chatter suggests that a couple of announcements may be incoming. Perhaps most predictably is that following Popcap sending a Save The Date August 2nd 2010 with a zombie hand attached people are speculating that Plants Versus Zombies 2 is going to be announced. More unusual is the news that leaked out in advance of next week's San Diego Comic…

Plants Vs Zombies: They Live! Also, Are Live!

Having spent all Thursday working on my World of Love presentation and Friday actually doing it, I'm catching up with the gaming Internet. Hence, seeing Kotaku linking on Thursday to Laura Shigihara's performing the song she wrote and performed in Plants Vs Zombies, There's A Zombie On Your Lawn. Ah, 2009 flashback. 'Tis very cute, and you'll find it below...

Plants Vs Zombies… Online

Except not as sexy as that sounds. There's a webgame version of Plants Versus Zombies available. It features three game modes - 14 levels of Adventure, Endless Survival and Vasebreaker - with 12 plans and 6 zombie types. And a new zombie type. Crikey. The biggest problem for me it actually shares with the new game. I lost my save, so would have to play…
