Game creator Rovio confirmed that a film of the iPhone hit Angry Birds is in development, as it announced that 400 million people had downloaded the game.
The story of this game is quite interesting. In order to revenge pigs who stole birds’ eggs, these birds try to attack pig’s building with their own bodies as bullets. In the game, players use catapults to fire infuriated birds at pigs hiding inside buildings made of planks.
Rovio said that a new bird will be launched in-game for Halloween - and even offered a tantalising glimpse of the small part of new Angry Bird’s on his Facebook..
Speaking at the Web 2.0 conference in San Francisco, Rovio also said that Angry Birds is being played for 300 million minutes per day worldwide.
The film, to be produced in conjunction with Marvel - will explore the 'emotional connection' gamers have with Angry Birds, a Marvel executive told Hollywood trade magazine Variety this year.
So far, Rovio has yet to spend a single penny on marketing or advertising, reports TechCrunch, but sells a million Angry Birds toys and a million T-shirts every month.
A recent survey estimated that Britain's economy lost more than ?800 million a year to games played on smartphones such as iPhone at work. 'Gaming has gone mainstream with Angry Birds,' says Stuart Miles, founder of Britain's biggest independent gadget site Pocket Lint, 'Everybody from my three year old son to my granny can play these games. It's breaking down the barriers - gaming is no longer just something for spotty teenagers.'
