Bad Piggies to let you have a real swine time starting September 27th
It was back in July when we first heard the rumblings about a new game being developed by Rovio where the pigs would be the stars instead of the birds. A few days ago, Rovio released a trailer for the game, called "Bad Piggies," and now we have a launch date of September 27th. And in case you're wondering, the game is the only thing that apparently will be launched with this title as Rovio says that "Bad Piggies" will not use a slingshot in the game.

The idea of "Bad Piggies" is to see the Angry Birds backstory from the pigs' point of view. The launch date will see the game made available for iOS, Android and Mac. Windows Phone, Windows 8 and PC versions will be available shortly afterward. While waiting for the 27th, you can visit the pigs own website at the sourcelink, which has links to their Facebook, Google+ and Twitter pages.

Rovio has said that it's goals are loftier than just developing games. The company says it wants to be the next Disney and with the merchandising they have done with the Angry Birds, the company is off to a great start. The images of the Birds can be seen on everything from t-shirts to board games and snacks, lunch boxes and school supplies. Last year, the mobile game was downloaded a whopping 648 million times and spawned a whole group of look and sound alike copy cats.

By offering "Bad Piggies," Rovio gets to use its flagship game to generate what should be hundreds of millions of downloads, and at the same time offers something that will be fresh and new to the huge legion of Angry Birds fans. Most Angry Birds players are sure to give "Bad Piggies" a shot, even just out of curiosity. In this case, curiosity won't kill the cat, bird or even a pig. It will just make Rovio a ton of money.
"There’s a lot of empathy towards the lovable enemies from the Angry Birds games, and we’ve been constantly asked: what about the pigs’ side of the story. Bad Piggies gives you the chance to play as the second-most-loved characters in the Angry Birds universe, and explore this rich world through their green eyes."-Mikael Hed, CEO, Rovio

I had suggested this to them sometime back, but called it When Pigs Fly...Bad Piggies just sounds dumb.

There's just too many bad puns here. Not trying to piggyback here or anything.
