Nightmare On Steam Street: Popcap Founder’s Slayaway Camp Gets A Deluxe Edition

Slayaway Camp [official site] is a block-based, 80s slasher film-inspired puzzle-murder game from one of the guys who oversaw Popcap during its Peggle/Plants vs Zombies/Bookworm Adventures imperial phase.

They also recruited Mass Effect VO-man Mark Meer (no relation as far as…
