Angry Birds developer Rovio released some details Monday about its new title, which it hopes to have ready sometime in the next two month. Titled “Amazing Alex,” the game is physics based, like Angry Birds, featuring strange machines like those designed by Rube Goldberg built by the title character. The game is actually a rebranded version of “Casey's Contraptions,” a game developed by developers Noel Llopis and Miguel A. Friginal that Rovio acquired in the first week of May.
Rovio is hoping to keep the momentum going with Amazing Alex after announcing the 1 billionth download of Angry Birds last week. First appearing in 2009, Angry Birds has now seen a total of four versions, and the brand has been licensed for t-shirts, toys, and other merchandise, and the company is in the initial stages of a movie, television show and even a theme park based on the brand.
