My girlfriend is going to lose her mind when she reads this.
Apparently, there are plans for a sequel to Plants vs. Zombies, Popcap’s popular tower defense game for the PC/Mac/iPhone/iPad/Toaster. Apparently, Popcap co-founder John Vechey promises “there will be a Plants Vs. Zombies 2 in the next one to 10 years.” Not exactly a firm release date, but at least we know it’s in the works.
I personally really enjoyed playing PvZ on my PC and iPod Touch, especially on the latter device, where the touch controls really improved the experience. My girlfriend though is friggin’ obsessed. She’s played through the game on her iPod no fewer than three times, and could probably kick my ass if it had a competitive mode. This is a girl who had never seen a Super Mario Bros. or Legend of Zelda game before meeting me. I’m not sure whether to be proud or a little frightened of what my influence has wrought.
