Plants vs. Zombies Was Almost Named “Lawn Of The Dead”

With today’s Friday Funday blog post of the day, PopCap Games listed some of their more popular games and the titles that they were almost given. It has been said before that Bejeweled was originally named “Diamond Mine”, but there are a few more examples worth mentioning. (Casual games, Mobile, Peggle, Plants vs Zombies, PopCap, Xbox 360, Zuma)

Did you know that the original name for Pac-man was Puck-man? Not because he looks like a puck, but because paku-paku means to flap one's mouth open and closed. They changed it because they were afraid of people changing the name, like scratching out the middle part of the P.-the homeboy Scott Pilgrim
