Rovio have released many different versions of their award-winning popular touch centric game Angry Birds over the years, including a version that even saw the annoyed avian attackers make their way into space. The newest iteration of the popular franchise takes the venerable time filler much closer to home.
“We decided we would start releasing more localised versions of the game, and we were really interested in Northern Ireland. Much like the angry birds themselves the people who get involved in rioting tend to run in head first without thinking of the consequences of themselves or others,” a lead developer for the company said.
“We’ve consulted with locals, and spent a fair bit of time around the province, especially around the July period, when things really get interesting, and we feel we’ve really captured the heart and soul of what drives the passion in the hearts of its people.”
“Unlike previous versions of the game, you’ll get the opportunity to play as your chosen side, then indulge in either harmless rioting, or attack the pigs to retrieve the flags they’ve stolen”.
Critical reception has been good, with locals saying “It’s great craic” and “What the f**k’s angry birds”. The usual line of plush toys, t-shirts, action figures, and radios are expected to go on sale next month, after the game’s release, with new the addition of an angry birds football top, angry bird track bottoms and angry birds vodka.
