Rovio has leaked a bit of info on what might be the next Angry Birds Space update. According to a blog post this morning, “Fry Me to the Moon” will be the next planet released for Angry Birds Space! Rovio also provided AngryBirdsNest with a couple exclusive images, which you can see below (the image with “Level 1” in the name and the one of what looks to be a half eaten moon). The level with the Space Needle was leaked last week.
Details are sparse at the moment and the planet’s name is subject to change, but we do know that “Fry Me to the Moon” will be a free planet, not an in-app purchase. That said, we have many questions, and do not know whether they will be addressed in this update or not. But nonetheless some of those questions are:
- Will there be any tweaks to the Space Eagle? Please, no posting your opinions on the Space Eagle here, as there is a dedicated thread in the forum for that.
- What is the significance of the “Moon” image they gave us? We’re told it gives us an idea of the “planet’s theme”, but does it have significance beyond the title? Did the “Fat Pig” get hungry? I guess we will see.
- Will the majority of bugs be fixed in this update?
- When will this update land and on what platforms?
Enter the Contest to Name the Fourth Angry Birds Space Planet
Now’s your chance! Rovio is running a contest to name the fourth planet, and all are welcome to participate. If you want to submit your planet name to Rovio, you can either tweet @AngryBirds on Twitter, using the hashtag #AngryBirdsComp, or email email@example.com. Five lucky contestants will receive a special prize, which seems to be a super mysterious Space Box (see the one that smashed BirdLeader’s driveway in this post and my Super Red Bird learning about p-adic numbers in this comment). And one of these five will receive a one-of-a-kind autographed piece of Angry Birds Space art! If you want to participate, you must submit by 3pm GMT on 11 April, with winners being announced within 24 hours of that deadline. Please read Rovio’s disclaimer in their article before submitting.
Update: The competition has ended and you can see the full list of winners in Rovio’s blog. A huge congratulations for our very own Laurence for being a notable Runner-Up with his entry, “Hamosphere”! Outstanding!!
