Not resting on the success of their “Angry Birds” franchise, developers Rovio has announced its latest game: “Bad Piggies”. As the name implies, the main characters for this game are the evil pigs from the original “Angry Birds” game.
Rovio are not deeming “Bad Piggies” as a spin-off to the mega blockbuster that was “Angry Birds”, with the executive vice president of Rovio saying that it is the “launch of a new franchise”.
Rovio are seemingly intent on teasing the public and generating the buzz for their new game, so much so that they have not even announced how the game is actually played. As of now, the only indication other than the trailer above is the description from Fast Company:
The swine are stranded on a desert island and have to build vehicles and contraptions to make their way to the delicious eggs that they can’t seem to get enough of. Though there is a three-star mechanic at work, there are no birds in sight, and the pigs are bouncy, jovial, and downright likable–a far cry from the snorting, antagonizing characters from the Angry Birds installments.
Besides the trailer, there are also Facebook and Twitter accounts bearing the “Bad Piggies” title. Head on to those links to get your pre-game fix, as the game will be released on September 27 on Android, iOS, PC and Mac devices, with the mobile versions to cost $0.99.
