Angry Birds was one of the first smart phone mobile games I’ve ever played. That was a long, long time ago. Since then Angry Birds has pretty much become ubiquitous with mobile games and has seen several iterations. But now Rovio, the team behind Angry Birds is looking to go in a whole new direction.
It all started when a few members of the Rovio team decided to participate in the Red Bull soapbox derby race. When their soapbox racer eventually fell apart, the team was hit with hay bails of inspiration. It was at that moment they decided that the next Angry Birds title would be a racing game! Dubbed “Angry Birds Go!” it will be a “kart style” racing game that will likely feature weapons and funny power ups. No release date has been announced yet but I am sure whenever it comes out it will sell a bazillion copies and I am sure at least one of those will be bought by me!
