Is there anybody out there who doesn't already own a copy of PopCap Games' classic Plants vs. Zombies? Well, in case there are a few stragglers out there, PopCap Games has teamed up with the American Dental Association this Halloween in an attempt to reduce the amount of candy given out and to instead replace it with the game. They've created a website, called StopZombieMouth.com, where they explain the thought behind the promotion. According to the site:
This Halloween, the ADA and PopCap Games are redefining what a Halloween “treat” can be… by giving FUN instead of candy. We’re giving away Plants vs. Zombies™ download games as a sugar-free alternative, and you can join in the fun.
You can go out to PopCap's site and print out your own coupons to give to costumed children on Halloween, or you can just use the code "PEAH8R" to snag your free copy. However you can only redeem the code between October 30th and November 10th, so make sure you don't forget!
Although we think most kids would like a combination of a game AND candy, this is a great marketing move by the folks over at PopCap. We can't help but wonder if children are going to end up with dozens of coupons for a game they may already have. Note that the code is only good for the PC and Mac.
