With 250 Million Downloads Angry Birds Moves Into Magic, Cookbooks, And More
Last night at the Webby awards, two little birds told me some interesting news about Angry Birds. Okay, it was actually a Mighty Eagle, founder Peter Vestebacka, and one of his product managers, Ramine Darabiha. The Angry Birds games now have been downloaded 250 million times across all mobile platforms. So what's next for Angry Birds? Vestebecka says that they are working on a new game called Wine and Dine, which is more about the pigs, and a cookbook which will feature egg recipes. But the most what piqued my ears the most was Angry Birds Magic, a location-based platform which will be built into all Angry Birds games.
