It seems that, perhaps, the Angry Bird is one of a very small handful of creatures which is benefiting from the evergrowing sprawl of technology in today’s world.
Mikael Hed, CEO of Rovio explains:
This is a fantastic landmark achievement for us, and we’re extremely delighted to see such an incredible amount of people enjoying our games. We remain committed to creating more fun experiences and bringing exceptional quality to Angry Birds Fans everywhere.
To put this all into perspective – more than 200,000 years of Angry Birds have been played around the world, translating to 300 million minutes of playing time each day. Gamers have played more than 266 billion levels of the game, launching 400 billion birds into the stratosphere, and collecting more thatn 44 billion Stars. Not bad at all.
This was all achieved through just three games: The original Angry Birds and two spin-offs, Angry Birds Seasons and Angry Birds Rio. The games are currently available on all major smartphones, PC, Mac, and the Chrome web browser. A new deal has been signed with Nokia, which will bring the experience to an all-new audience.
However that might not be the largest group of people that will be exposed to Rovio‘s feathered favourites – the company is all set to open the world’s first official Angry Birds retail shop in Helsinki.
