The original creator of Plants vs. Zombies, George Fan, was reportedly let go by publisher EA several years ago after objecting to the pay-to-win model that was subsequently introduced into the series.
Fan’s story was only recently told by his friend Edmund McMillen, the mastermind behind The Binding of Isaac and Super Meat Boy. Speaking on Alex Larrabee’s Roundtable Podcast, McMillen said that Fan was headhunted by PopCap, where he made Plants vs. Zombies with a very small team. It was, as we all know, hugely successful for the company, but McMillen stresses that it was made with an indie mindset back in 2009.
