Rovio Planning To Give Pigs The Spotlight In Angry Birds Spin-Off?

Rovio has already shown that it can make some pretty drastic tweaks to the gameplay of its incredibly successful Angry Birds series and still end up with something just as addictive; look no further than Angry Birds Space earlier this year. Now the developer might be thinking about another side project along those lines, turning the tables on the sides we’re used to playing with the possibility that the evil (or maybe they’re just misunderstood) pigs will star in their own new game.

The company has released a teaser press release and set up a “Bad Piggies” Facebook page. Right now, there’s very little to go on besides the message “We has new…” before trailing off, and a picture of the pigs facing off against a bird (above). That one might be a clue, though, with the boards, rope, and loose nails suggesting that maybe Bad Piggies – if that is the actual name of the game – will have something to do with building-up the kind of structures we’re used to having fun demolishing.

Exactly how you might make a game out of that remains to be seen, but perhaps some cross between Angry Birds and World of Goo, where you’re trying to build a structure up to some goal point, while the computer-controlled birds try to knock it down? Whatever it is, we can’t wait to hear more.
