Angry Birds Spinoff Bad Piggies Announced

Rovio Entertainment, the creators of Angry Birds, today announced their newest game, Bad Piggies! The Angry Birds spinoff will launch on September 27th, 2012 for iOS, Android and Mac. The new game turns the franchise on its head by letting the fans play as the pigs – with all new, never-before-seen gameplay – and not a slingshot in sight!

While Bad Piggies will launch on iOS, Android & Mac on September 27th, the Windows Phone, Windows 8 & PC versions will follow shortly thereafter.

“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.”

“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.”
