The boys, girls, pigs and feathered creatures behind Angry Birds are set for a shakeup. Publisher Rovio has today revealed the Spring-themed Easter Egg gameplay for Angry Birds Seasons, but hinted at something much more interesting as well.
A recent blog post includes this comment:
…we will soon launch the biggest alternate reality game with Angry Birds ever – be prepared to seek for clues around the world to discover the secrets hidden in Angry Birds Seasons!
By “Alternate reality”, we’re actually assuming they mean “Augmented reality” – so rather than something like The Potato Sack, we’re anticipating that the next project in the Angry Birds-verse might be something utilising hardware cameras on gaming devices, maybe something a little bit like Spirit Hunters Inc? The game is currently released on iOS, Android, Symbian^3 and Palm WebOS, which sounds perfect for a bit of hand-held real-world gaming, right?
