What the Flock? Angry Birds Game May Migrate to Hollywood.
Did you know it was possible to milk birds? For a demonstration, just keep an eye on Finnish mobile game maker Rovio as it tries to parlay its Angry Birds puzzler from a worldwide iPhone and iPad megahit into a major cross-platform franchise: Toys, comics, TV shows, even a full-length feature film. Given the difficulty of making a big score in the app market, Rovio intends to squeeze every last bit out of its winner. “It doesn’t make sense (to produce a slate of different games) when you have a hit of any caliber,” CEO Mikael Hed told Daily Variety.
