article imageAnimated 'Angry Birds' series a possibility, says game creator

By Stephanie Medeiros     Jan 21, 2011 in Technology
The very popular multi-platform game 'Angry Birds' has become such a sensation that there are talks of an animated series by the makers of the game.
Rovio CEO Mikael Hed mentioned to the British TV site C21media that the next step for Angry Birds will be an animated series. He is quoted both on C21media and the New York Post as saying: "...one of my personal big focus areas right now: to work on broadcast content for Angry Birds."
The Finnish game company created the mobile app originally for the smartphone market of Apple and Android, however, since it's 50 million download milestone, Angry Birds has garnered a multi-platform plan of action, which includes versions of the game for Mac and PC as well as the Xbox 360, PlayStation 3 and Wii consoles. Recently, at CES 2011, an Angry Birds board game created by Mattel was shown off and, as reported by Mashable, will be available for purchase in May.
In the game, the player takes control of a variety of "angry" birds that are slingshot into barricades of wood, rock and glass that are built by green pigs. The point is to, more or less, kill all of the pigs on that level while also doing the most damage to their fortress. The actual storyline of the game is simple at best, explaining that the green pigs stole the birds' eggs. There is both a free and paid version of the game.
Rovio was approached by unnamed Hollywood executives for a marketing deal last year, reports New York Post. Hed went on to explain, "...the next part is to move into production, and that's where we are right now."
Recently, Angry Birds was taken down from its top downloaded spot by the game Bubble Ball, which was reported by The Telegraph to be created by a 14-year-old boy.
