Just when you thought Rovio couldn't milk any more games out of its wildly popular "Angry Birds" franchise, along comes a press release announcing a new game called "Bad Piggies" slated for release on Sept. 27.
In this game, instead of playing as the Angry Birds fighting the egg-stealing Green Pigs, you get to play from the Green Pigs' perspective in what Rovio says is an entirely new type of game play with "not a slingshot in sight."
“We’ve had a lot of fun creating a totally new and unique gameplay experience,” said Petri Järvilehto, EVP Games at Rovio in a statement. “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.”
The Finnish company offers few additional specifics about what that the "Bad Piggies" game play will look like, but a promotional video for the new game features an angry bird coming under attack from dozens of green pig heads that appear to be falling from the sky.
