[size=4]Report: Plants vs Zombies creator laid off from PopCap[/size]

There was a surprising casualty in yesterday's PopCap layoffs. George Fan is best known as the creator of one of PopCap's most endearing games: Plants vs Zombies. And although the company is moving ahead with a sequel to the game, according to a report by 1UP, Fan was part of yesterday's layoffs. (His LinkedIn page has not been updated, however.)

If Fan is no longer involved with Plants vs Zombies, it may explain the curious rumor that surfaced earlier–that the next iteration of the franchise would turn into a multiplayer shooter. While the original game was heralded for its simplicity, a look at Fan's GDC talk reveals how much design work and iteration was necessary to make the game as accessible as it is.

  • Ook ideaal: twee schermen gebruiken. Een Plant vs Zombies en andere om een beetje te browsen.
  • Idd Perfecte momenten pokkel
  • Uitermate geschikt voor wanneer je:
    - zondagochtend nergens zin in hebt en je in je boxershort achter je computer kruipt om maar wat te gaan doen.
    - 's nachts terug komt uit de kroeg, eigenlijk dronken bent maar nog niet wil slapen.
    - eenzaam op je studentenkamer aan het dineren bent, en met één hand de lepel bedient waarmee je te lang doorgekookte macaroni naar binnen schuift, en met de ander Plants vs. Zombies speelt.
  • [size=4]Plants vs. Zombies 2 announced for 2013[/size]


    Daft and unlikely rumours about PopCap making a multiplayer shooter spin-off of Plants vs. Zombies were circulating earlier this month, causing the sensible to groan sceptically. Well, a sequel is officially coming, PopCap announced today, though there was no mention of shooty-shoots–or much else for that matter.

    All PopCap would commit to was saying that it'll bring "new features, settings, and situations," including new plant and zombie types. It should launch in the first half of 2013, by late spring.

    Platforms are unconfirmed, though expect it to hit just about everything. The original is on PC, Mac, XBLA, PlayStation 3, Vita, Nintendo DS, DSiWare, iOS, Android, and Windows Phone 7.

    "Spring is crullest curlie ungood time, and plantz grow dull roots," an actual proper real zombie said in the announcement. "So, we are meating you for brainz at yore house. No worry to skedule schedlue plan… we're freee anytime. We'll find you."

    Let's all cross our fingers and hope those shooter rumours were as silly as they seemed, while we sing, "There's a zombie on your lawn…"
