Welcome to paradise! For fans of music and bird flinging alike, a new web game is coming soon as a collaboration between Rovio and the alternative / punk band Green Day! The big names have teased some fantastic images, though no actual gameplay imagery has been seen yet. The game itself will likely be available at greenday-game.angrybirds.com and on Facebook. There is also some info on Green Day’s Facebook Page and their unofficial fansite.
We have a few initial thoughts about this game, but we may be in the minority. Based on the Angry Birds Friends logo, I think it’s a safe bet that it will be an on-Facebook Flash-powered app, similar to recent collaborations like Heikki and Intel. While these collaborative web games have not received the most massive of followings, they do offer some fun gameplay and unique level designs. I’m not all by myself in thinking that this collaboration with Green Day and their massive fan base could draw a much bigger following than any of the previous web based mini-games.
At this time, there is no announced launch date, but if you wake me up before September ends I may have an answer. As always, we will be having a blast while we keep our eyes out for the launch (and you will be the first to know when it does).
I hope you’ve had the time of your life reading this and enjoyed our not-so-subtle Green Day references.
