The next ‘Angry Birds’

Rappler.com

Two former employees of Rovio, the Finnish firm that created hit online app “Angry Birds,” are cooking a new “multiplayer, real time” game that’s a cartoony version of “World of Warcraft.” Tuomas Erikoinen, the lead artist behind a story about the birds being mad at pigs that stole their eggs, and ex-Rovio server architecture Antti Sten have co-founded Boomlagoon, which plans to release an HTML5 Web game featuring non-angry characters that have oven mitts and frying pans on their heads. The young founders said the characters of their new game are goofier and less circular than the Angry Birds, and will use kitchenware as fashion accessories or weapons. Boomlagoon hopes to put out the game this year.
