A Family Friendly Zombie Apocalypse

The splatter of sweet, delicious brains may be of little interest to this zombie horde.

Players around the world are immersed, quite likely at this very minute, in the pulse-pounding task of surviving an unstoppable onslaught of the undead in Valve's Left 4 Dead. Blowing zombies limb-from-limb is all fine and good, but the folks over at PopCap Games have a different kind of zombie apocalypse in mind: a more family friendly zombie apocalypse.

With Bejeweled Twist now wrapped up and released, PopCap's next major gaming project will tread down a somewhat darker path - though not as dark as the subject matter typically calls for. Zombies generally search out and eat the living, but one can only imagine what the puzzle-centric, casual game publisher will have them doing in its latest effort.

"It'll be a few months, but our next new game will be worth the wait...zombie apocalypse, the PopCap way: no blood, no gore, but blood-curdlingly fun and addictive just the same," PopCap PR rep Garth Chouteau told TheBBPS.com this week.

A zombie game without gore? Intriguing.
