Last year was the first year of this strategy gaming brand which became so popular worldwide after it was launched on December 29, 2009 by Finnish computer game developer Rovio Mobile. This is just one of the few brands which started on a humble beginning but resulted a massive success. The game itself is now being featured by so many different computer and phone companies cementing its lead in the world easy-access gaming. Although it is not that challenging compared to dota and other hard core computer games, but it is strategic kind of play which made it different and addictive. It has an audience ages from 2 year old onwards. :)
The company is now on merchandising which added to their mobile app and computer app success. More success means more money to them. Like the BB pic above taken inside an electronics store in Dubai, UAE, you can see two new products from them; red bird and green pig speakers that can be attached to any smart phones. Below are safety casings for tablets. Previously they have launched stuff toys, shirts etc. But today, they have finally joined Facebook as an additional to the social network's vast applications.
So what will happen to those Farmville users after this? That is something to be seen. hehehe. We'll find it later whether Angry Birds logos will be posted wall after wall or Farmville will do something to retain its thunder on FB.
Did you know: that in early 2009, Rovio staff began reviewing proposals for potential games? One such proposal came from senior game designer Jaakko Iisalo in the form of a simulated screenshot featuring some angry-looking birds with no visible legs or wings. While the picture gave no clue as to what type of game was being played, the staff liked the characters, and the team elected to design a game around them. As the concept of Angry Birds was developed, the staff realized the birds needed an enemy. At the time, the "swine flu" epidemic was in the news, so the staff made the birds' enemies pigs.
