PopCap's new game Allied Star Police made by a 9-year old boy

"Owain Weinert, a 9-year-old boy that has been battling with Acute Lymphocytic Leukaemia recently reached out to the Make-A-Wish Foundation to see if he could have his dream of making an iOS game realized. Make-A-Wish inquired and managed to get in contact with the Seattle developer 4th & Battery, which you could classify as a ‘spin-off’ of PopCap (makers of Peggle and Plants vs. Zombies) that focuses on creating more experimental, indie or a “little flawed” games."

What a great story. Read the rest of it at MacStories

The game he created is called Allied Star Police. MacStories says it some sort of tower defense game. Owain says that all of his family can’t stop playing it and neither can he. I love tower defense games and if it’s really that addictive, my weekend is screwed. I hope it’s not based on Plants vs. Zombie, because then I’m in real troubles.

There goes my productivity.
