The lights are on
Last weekend, PopCap discounted several of its iOS games and donated all of the revenue, totaling over $200,000, to the Red Cross.
iPhone versions of games like Bejeweled, Bookworm, Chuzzle, Peggle, and Plants vs. Zombies were reduced to $0.99, while the iPad editions dropped to $1.99.
“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,” said Ellen Marett, Senior Director of Workforce Culture at PopCap, in a statement. “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.”

Wow go Pop-Cap.
Holy balls! Nice job. My hat is off for you guys.
More reason for me to love plants & zombies.
Very nicely done Pop-Cap. Hope some more companies follow suit.
It's seriously heart warming to see so many in the gaming industry step up and help our fellow man.
Go PopCap! Donation for the best.
