PopCap in the News


Today’s In the News post is brought to you by our awesomely awesome PR Intern Rachel S., who we couldn’t live without. Really — she runs the oxygen tanks. Take it away Rachel!

With Halloween only a week away, there has been a lot of chatter about our Stop Zombie Mouth campaign. If you haven’t checked out the Stop Zombie Mouth website . . . do it now! But first, catch up on some great PopCap news:

  • Kansas City’s FOX 4 featured the campaign video as well as an interview with a local pediatric dentist; talking about dental hygiene and the campaign!
  • Spielo has made some awesome PopCap-themed slot machines. There will be Plants vs. Zombies, Zuma, and Bejeweled machines. Take a look at one of the PvZ machines in Casino Journal.
  • Inside Social Games talks about the best and worst games on Facebook according to DAU (Daily Active Users). They won’t be surprised if Bejeweled Blitz jumps up a few spots by next month! Duh! Oh, and we’re bringing “duh” back.
  • It is the month of Halloween, but it is also Breast Cancer awareness month. Gaming Angels let us know about this great breast cancer fundraiser created by The Game Show Network and Breast Cancer Research Foundation. They will raise money for breast cancer research by playing in online game tournaments. We are pleased to know that Bejeweled 2 is one of the games in the tournament, with 10% of the entry fee going to the foundation. Play on, and for a great cause!
