First Details about Rovio's Follow Up to Angry Birds

Game studio Rovio is working on a follow up to its wildly successful Angry Birds. Today on Finnish television, Rovio honcho Mikael Hed gave the first details about his studio's upcoming title.


According to Finnish news network YLE Uutiset, the game is called Amazing Alex, and it is based on intellectual property Rovio purchased from the Rube Goldberg-like game Casey's Contraptions.

The Rovio game centers on a boy named Alex, who loves to build things. Amazing Alex aims to have an educational element.

"The quality pressure is high," Hed said.

Angry Birds has been downloaded a billion times.

There is even an Angry Birds theme park (and an endless supply of merch).

"We want to maintain the high standard Angry Birds fans have come to enjoy," he added.

Amazing Alex will be released in the next two months.
