Just about everyone who’s owned a smart phone in recent times will know about Angry Birds. It’s that game where you toss birds – angry ones – at pigs who have stolen the birds’ eggs. Sounds kind of lame.. until you play it, and you realise it’s easily one of the most addictive and well designed games of our generation.
Well, the makers of Angry Birds, Rovio Ltd, are hinting at a new game that takes a different perspective. It’s not like the various iterations of Angry Birds we’ve seen before – Seasons, Rio, Space, etc – but from the pigs’ perspective instead apparently.
Detail is fairly thin on the ground, however there are both Twitter and Facebook pages up for a game that is rumored to be called “Bad Piggies”. Makes sense. Further evidence is found in a press release, issued by the pigs, which surmises that birds stink, and pigs are awesome.
It will be interesting to see what manner of game this becomes, whether its the same physics type game we’ve seen before, or whether it’ll be a different type of puzzler — for example, a fortress building strategy. Regardless, Rovio makes pretty engaging games, so it will probably be pretty good!
Read on for the full ‘release’ below.
