Rovio Releases Bad Piggies Trailer, A Spinoff To The Angry Birds Series

Rovio is adding to their Angry Birds franchise with the new spin off called Bad Piggies that will give fans of the series a chance to live life through the eyes of the pigs we are so often trying to hit. We knew the game was coming out on September 27th, but we didn’t know what the game would be about. Would the pigs enact some type of revenge on these birds or cook up some new recipes for the bird eggs? This was cleared up a bit with the newly released teaser.

In the teaser, we see the ever so hated pigs rolling and flying around in user designed contraptions to try and get through different levels stealing bird eggs. All of this clever and riveting gameplay is presented in a colorful, two-dimensional sidescrolling view— just like the original Angry Birds series. Without even playing it yet, this game looks like another hit for Rovio and a lot of wasted time for me. You’ll want to see how this game looks instead of reading about it, so hit the break to see the teaser.

It’s time to play the pigs, Rovio announces Bad Piggies coming September 27th

We saw a teaser over the weekend for Rovio’s latest creation and they just told us that their new game, “Bad Piggies”, will be available on September 27th on Android, iOS, Mac, Windows 8, and Windows Phone. As far as the premise or game play, we don’t have a lot of information, but we do know that the focal point is the “second-most-loved characters in the Angry Birds universe,” the pigs. We also know that you won’t find a slingshot anywhere in the game and it will be a “totally new and unique gameplay experience.”

Executive Vice President of games at Rovio, Petri Järvilehto, said:

“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.”

Well we still have 3 weeks to go so want to guess how many more teaser trailers we will see? I’m guessing two more teasers and one full trailer.

Rovio teases new Angry Birds spin-off game using Bad Piggies social media accounts

Rovio, creators of the popular Angry Birds franchise, appear to be getting closer to a spin-off that will let users play on the side of the Bad Piggies. Accounts have been created on Facebook, Twitter and Google+ for the Bad Piggies. On Facebook, they list their mission as “Stealing eggs!!” Could that be a hint as to what the game play may be like? Others seem to think it will be centered on the building of structures to defend against the Angry Birds. Fans of the game may want to hit the source link and follow the Bad Piggies page on Facebook.
