28 WEEDS LATER: PLANTS VS. ZOMBIES WILL INDEED FEATURE PLANTS

In other PopCap goins on, as has been mentioned numerous times since posting the first image of the publisher’s forthcoming tower defense game Plants vs. Zombies, what little we’ve seen of the game has been conspicuously light on, well, actual vegetation.

But, as noted by PopCap’s own Garth Chouteau (who also submits the above pun) in the last post, there’s a good reason. Says Garth: “Lastly, I’ll just say this: the scene depicted in the screen shot is a *night* level, during which your standard ‘daytime’ plants don’t work so well…”

And on that note, has a Plants Vs. Zombies teaser been staring us in the face this whole time? As commenter Diamar pointed out: “There’s a sunflower at the bottom of PopCap’s home page, and [Bookworm star] Lex is staring at it quizzically. Good money is on it being from PvZ.”

I’ll be damned.

UPDATE: That settles that: NeoGAF forum-goer adg1034 points out that the most recent Peggle Nights bonus pack features this level above that definitively ties all of these loose ends together.

  1. I finally realized what the plants v. zombies screen shot reminded me of: the graphics make me think of the SNES classic “Zombies Ate My Neighbors”. The football-player zombies especially fit that game’s take on zombified Americana.


  2. I find all this Plants v Zombies coverage to be entirely cruel. In the 20 or so hours I’ve known about this game I’ve wanted to play it, and all day you’ve done nothing but remind me that I can’t do so yet.
