Is an Angry Birds “Mystery” Game in the Works?

A little over a month ago Deutsche Welle, a German TV station, did a report about Rovio. It’s definitely worth watching, but more interesting are the images embedded in the video, which can be seen below. Most assumed that these could be from the forthcoming Angry Birds Rio edition, but that was squashed today when Rovio (thanks to @ladycrumb for tipping us off to this) tweeted, “no, not Rio. Some other game…“.

So that begs the question, if it’s not Rio, then what is it? Could it be Angry Birds 2 or some new episode after Ham ‘Em High? Or could it all be smoke and mirrors? Your guess is as good as mine, but it’s fun to speculate about this little Easter egg from our Finnish friends at Rovio.

What do you think?

    Maybe it’s the Easter edition and they’re on Easter Island.:)

    It’s the same level! I think there will be an update in the original game which will let the background change depending on the time you play the game. Not so exciting :(

    Yeah, I thought that too, but why would the scenery change if it as just going from day to night? I hope it’s more than just that, but I guess time will tell.

    I don’t think it will be anything.
    1. We’ve waited almost a year
    2. (This is a question) why does it say it is a tv channel on the top.

    The images were taken from that site.

    My guess is that these are screenshots from a console version of AB, ie for XBox or PS3. This is because this is actually Mighty Hoax level 4-15 with improved graphics and more detailed backgrounds, something you would expect from a console version. The only thing is there are no red birds on level 4-15 in the iPhone version, but I doubt that means anything.

    I love these graphics and sure hope that whatever they end up in comes to iOS or Mac OS. A background that changes based on time of day would be kind of cool, I think. (I had a very brief flirtation with Tiny Wings and enjoyed the daily changing backgrounds. After a few days though I left it – I need angry avians more than mellow happy ones.)

    Maybe it’s just me but I think the pigs look different in these screenshots – the ears are narrower and closer together.

    At 1:54 in in the video, I see where you got one of your images from, but there’s also what looks like when I cropped it, a yellow cave at 1:55

    By chris

    Why does it say DW TV?

    German TV station called Deustche Welle TV

    There is another picture at minute 1:55: it looks like a swamp (or like Danger zone first world?), but the level is always the same. I will exclude the Amez’s idea.

    It’s a Danger Above level with a different background.

    I saw that… I think the level is just a test sketch; they wanted to put a level on the background to see how it would work.
