The game will allow users to play as the pigs instead of the birds

It's time for the little green pigs in Angry Birds to get some revenge.

Angry Birds creator Rovio announced today that it will release a brand-new game this month called "Bad Piggies." Instead of flinging birds at the pigs and their various environments, users can play as the pigs to plot schemes against the birds.

"There's a lot of empathy toward the lovable enemies from the Angry Birds games, and we've been constantly asked: what about the pigs' side of the story?" said Mikael Hed, Rovio CEO. "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." 

If the Angry Birds series is any indication of Bad Piggies' future, it will be a great success. Angry Birds, which was released in 2009, has over 800 million downloads. Angry Birds Space alone broke the mobile download record of any game. It even extended beyond the game, offering plush toys, T-shirts and other merchandise. Rovio is also looking into a 2013 IPO

Bad Piggies will be released September 27 for iOS, Android and Mac.

You kill the guy who killed your Dad. His brother then kills you.

Yes, I believe it is still revenge. Also, those birds went a little beyond simple revenge, considering the pigs did not even fight back.

I expect this will lead to all out war between the pigs and the birds, which should milk a few more games from the franchise before major changes are required.
