This one definitely ranks up there as the most unexpected story of the day.

You know Popcap? The creators of games like Bookworm, Bejeweled, and Plants vs Zombies? The co-founder is now working on a horror game.

And not just any horror game, a proper hacky, slashy, slicey, dicey, blood-and-gutsy horror which involves killing teenagers by pushing blocks.

It's sordid and twisted and I'm not even sure I should be writing about it.

But Slayaway Camp is the brainchild of Jason Kapalka who has left Popcap to form a new independent studio called Blue Wizard.

All we know is the game is full of cartooney, comic-book violence and the studio is properly lifting the lid on it next Friday the 13th (because of course they are)

I guess we'll see you then. If you dare.
