Bad Piggies Preparing to Retaliate Against the Angry Birds: Rovio Teasing New Game

Alright, details are sparse at the moment, but Rovio is definitely planning something. Sometime during the night the Pigs formed themselves a union and decided they needed to go public (you can see their press release below). In addition to the press release, those portly pigs have launched their own Facebook and Twitter accounts. So what’s going on? My guess is this will eventually end up with a brand new game, but that’s just me. Whatcha thinkin?! Yu likez? Share your insightful thoughts and opinions below.

New Details!

Rovio has confirmed via their September 4th press release that “Bad Piggies” is indeed a NEW app. It will be launching on iOS, Android, and Mac on September 27th, with other platforms (Windows Phone, Windows 8, and PC listed specifically) “following shortly”. It’s also notable that in the press release they say that there is, “not a slingshot in sight!”

We also dug up some additional game play details from an exclusive look that Fast Company author J.J. McCorvey (why don’t we get these?!) received:

  • It sounds like the same pick of play appeal of Angry Birds will be present in Bad Piggies, yet the game play might be more similar to Amazing Alex. “”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.”
  • Those pesky pigs just can’t get enough eggs! “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.”

It looks like it’s more like a “build your way to the eggs” game and not “protect yourself from the birds”. It reminds me of Cargo Bridge.

Hey, slim… I’ve done some thinking, and I’ve deduced that the image of the pig thinking of building a few structures you guys got a while ago could be the title screen for the new app (if it’s an app). Like, you know how in all of Rovio’s games, when you start the game, it has the white screen that says ROVIO and then has a picture that says “Angry Birds Seasons” or “Amazing Alex”, loading….? I think that’s what the image is for. Just a thought.

Maybe there is only one freckled pig, and you have to build a structure to protect mainly him because he’s a child, maybe. And you get extra points for protecting other pigs or something.

Not to mention that my school has a football game on the night of the release date. I have to go there to play in the band.

From the looks of the website, it seems as if there is one freckled pig, and he is the main character.

@lamia They probably mean that it’s completely different game-play. “No slingshot in sight” is hinting that there will be game-play nothing like the first four AB games.

Do you think the pigs have decided to steal regular eggs instead of the angry birds eggs? Why do they want the eggs anyways? If you’ve played the first angry birds game, you can destroy donuts, watermelons, peaches, and strawberries. Why don’t they eat those? There’s ham, too, but why would a pig eat ham? That’s just plain cannibalism.

I looked and saw bad piggies on the pause menu at what was about 4:20 AM central standard time. However, I am at a hotel on vacation in Europe, so that was extremely difficult to calculate. It says “Bad Piggies: a new game coming September 27″.

Then it shows the pig with freckles with a thumbs up extending from his side, the one you see on a “like” button for Facebook , except green, and at the bottom are the words “Like Bad Piggies on Facebook”. I just can’t wait!

Thanks for this link. It took ages to download but was worth it. I read every page. It’s rather a large site considering it’s just for advertising toothbrushes and has been around for a while since it says “Upcoming Space” which of course has been out for ages now.

I so far have not bought any AB merchandise but can feel myself weakening after seeing this site – not just the toothbrushes – it shows many other items.

I have a theory about that.. The article from the guy who saw the game said the pigs are stranded on a deserted island.

I’ve been thinking that they really need to start distancing themselves from the Birds on Facebook and Twitter if they want the game to stand on it’s own.

So now we have Pigs sneaking their way to the Slingshot.

I think the Pigs will use the slingshot, get shot in the wrong direction or something and end up on the deserted island.

I think the Piggies are not going to use the Slingshot, they are going to destroy it!! Becausein the Bad Piggies facebook page there is this image (https://www.facebook.com/photo.php?fbid=360589027354723&set=a.356281601118799.83479.348134738600152&type=1&theater) the caption says “Soon no slingshot in sight!!”

Here’s the Story that i think that it will be featured in the game.
This story takes place in a island called Piggy Island, when everyone was pigs and Egg Eaters. They try everything to get their hands in those eggs of the birds, but they all those plans fail to catch the eggs. One day, a new pig has appeared in the island. However, this one was different from the other pigs. This pig has freckles.

More Coming Soon.

Here’s the continuation of the story.

One day after Freckled Pig arrive at Piggy Island, the Postman Pig has news for the people. Postman Pig says: “There’s a Competetion today, called Three Stars Race! Come and join today!” Freckled Pig was happy about it. The competetion is about building vehicles and collecting three stars and reaching the finish line with three stars collected.
Then the adventure begins!
