Sure, everyone loves those irritated balls of fluffed up feathers, but does anyone ever think about what those poor little piggies are going through? Apparently a lot of people do. So many that Rovio Entertainment, the creators of Angry Birds, are releasing a new game that is dedicated to the little green guys this month called “Bad Piggies.”
“There’s a lot of empathy towards the lovable enemies from the Angry Birds games, and we’ve been constantly asked: what about the pigs’ side of the story?” said Mikael Hed, CEO of Rovio. “Bad Piggies gives you the chance to play as the second-most-loved characters in the Angry Birds universe, and explore this rich world through their green eyes.”
The release is scheduled for September 27 on iOS, Android and Mac. There is no information about what type of game it is, but the likelihood that it is a physics-based game similar to Angry Birds is great. There may be any slingshots, but in Bad Piggies, pigs will probably fly.
“We’ve had a lot of fun creating a totally new and unique gameplay experience,” said Petri Järvilehto, EVP Games at Rovio. “There’s so much more to these pigs than what is seen in the Angry Birds games, and Bad Piggies is the first glimpse into what’s going on in the imaginative and ingenious minds of the pigs.”
