Bad Piggies to taunt Angry Birds on September 27

The Angry Birds franchise has been slipping a bit lately, so developer Rovio hopes to reinvigorate the series with Bad Piggies, a game from the perspective of the enemy.

This should help push the Angry Birds franchise well beyond its billion download figure. Developer Rovio is presenting a new angle on the franchise, letting you play from the perspective of the little green menace to the birds--the Bad Piggies. Oh, and there's no slingshots!

Rovio announced that Bad Piggies will be coming to iOS, Android, and Mac on September 27 (with Windows Phone and PC versions coming at a later date). We have no clue about the gameplay yet, but Rovio said slingshots won't be part of the game mechanics.

"There's a lot of empathy towards the lovable enemies from the Angry Birds games, and we've been constantly asked: what about the pigs' side of the story?" said Mikael Hed, CEO of Rovio, in a release. "Bad Piggies gives you the chance to play as the second-most-loved characters in the Angry Birds universe, and explore this rich world through their green eyes."

      So what? Do we build forts to protect against attacking angry birds?

        Yes, the bird though only appear at night and if they see you and get close, they explode, and you have to spend the next day going around collecting resources to rebuild what they destroyed.


        ....hey wait....

          Cover orange? I hate that game. Also, not like what I was thinking.

          The oranges have a terrifying death animation though.

      I've always thought the birds were a little too prone to violence so I'm glad we get to see the rest of the story.

        The rest of the story is that the pigs stole their dwagons babies. I'm pretty sure that would drive anyone to violence.

      I thought Angry Birds in Space was rather good.
