If you’ve always wanted to give Plants vs. Zombies a try but just haven't got around to it yet, this weekend is the perfect time, as PopCap Games is holding a very special 48-hour sale to raise funds for earthquake relief in Japan. In partnership with the Red Cross, PopCap has announced that it will donate all of its revenues from the sale, which started at 12.01 PDT today, and lasts until midnight PDT on Sunday March 20. PopCap has reduced its iPhone, iPod touch and iPad versions of best-selling games Bejeweled, Bookworm, Chuzzle, Peggle and Plants vs. Zombies to $0.99 for the iPhone/iPod touch versions and $1.99 for the iPad versions. In fact all PopCap Games are on sale.
Here’s Ellen Marett, senior director of workforce culture at PopCap, talking about the special ties that the company has with Japan, and why they decided to hold the sale.
“We recently opened an office in Tokyo, and while our Japan-based employees are safe and uninjured, we understand countless others in Japan need food, shelter, and medical attention. Given that Plants vs. Zombies reached #1 on the iPhone and iPad sales charts in Japan, it seemed like the most appropriate game to feature in this fundraising campaign.”
