The expansion of the Angry Birds franchise continues as Rovio sets its sights on Facebook. Here is an excerpt from a longer article on Develop-Online.net (click for full article):
On Facebook, “there will be completely new aspects to it that just haven’t been experienced in any other platform,” said studio boss Mikael Hed, who confirms that due to the social site’s ‘collaborative nature’, “the pigs will have a more prominent role”.
Meanwhile, Peter Vesterbacka, Rovio’s ‘might eagle’ (business development) in the piece confirms that other spin-offs could be in the driving and sports genres, moving away from the puzzle-strategy 2D game’s origins.
I don’t know how this will play out, but regardless, it will be interesting. What are your thoughts? Will this be the next big thing or is it too much of a good thing? It will be interesting to see how they utilize–and possibly incorporate–the social graph.
