We are beyond words in gratitude toward Rovio, who surprised us with the commemoration of the third level in Angry Birds Seasons The Pig Days.
Here are the kind words from Rovio’s blog:
Can you believe it? Angry Birds Nest is four years old! As the largest and most ultimate of Angry Birds fan communities, this Pig Day level honors all our awesome fans who started the site and made so popular. Thanks to all of you! Squawk!
For those who don’t know — or for those who just enjoy hearings he story — the idea for AngryBirdsNest began in May 2010 when our very own Commander in Beak @BirdLeader and his then-two-year-old son became mildly obsessed with Angry Birds. Instead of just creating the site, he professionally asked the Mighty Eagle’s permission: Rovio CMO Peter Vesterbacka. With a green light in hand, BL created… Well this:
Since then, we’ve seen AngryBirdsNest grow from that humble little page in the screenshot to a fully-fledged community — apparently worthy of our own level in an Angry Birds app!
But as much as this is a celebration for us and for BirdLeader, absolutely none of it would be possible without you: The Community, The Ultimate Flingers, The Unparalleled Fans, The Nesters. So from the bottom of our hearts…
Thank you for making us the community that we are today. We hope to continue to unveil more and more features that will make other so-called “Angry Birds Fan Sites” blush.
In fact, we might be working on something totally awesome right now that will revolutionize this site forever. (Yeah, we learned how to tease from Rovio.)
