A new addiction to waste time in your old one

Launching next Thursday, Pop Cap Games will be sharing a new mod for World of Warcraft. Their top selling addiction, Bejeweled, will be available to play in-game through a third-party mod.

Using World of Warcraft's mod tools, Fromwiller built a surprisingly convincing copy of PopCap's game, which he called Besharded. His feat did not go unnoticed by the Seattle-based publisher of the original.

"[Besharded] was cool and fun, but not very polished, so we reached out to the gamer in question and hired him to do an official version of Bejeweled for WoW," PopCap representative Garth Chouteau said in an e-mail to Wired.com.

Blizzard did not respond to requests for comment.

When asked why Blizzard would show no opposition to adding a competitor's game within their game, Chouteau said: "I think there may be some Bejeweled fans over there."
