After our initial post, we now have more accurate news about the Bad Piggies. According to Rovio’s press release, we can say to things that are absolutely certain about the Bad Pggies. The first is that this game is a separate app. The second is that they have a really close launch date, which is September 27.
A question that remains to be asked is what type of game will be, well, according to the website Fast Company, the “level creator” category is the right label for Bad Piggies. Below a quote that goes a bit in detail about the upcoming gaming app:
The game, which took about a year to complete, has the same addictive, pick-up-and-play quality that has helped the Angry Birds games soar past one billion downloads and pick up 200 million active users per month. There’s not much intense thinking required: An intuitive interface guides the player in assembling the vehicle, and if it crashes before collecting all three stars, the player is taken right back to the start screen.
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.
