The studio that bought us the phenomenally successful Angry Birds, and the million and one spin offs of the franchise have just entered Bizarro world by announcing Bad Piggies.

Bad Piggies lets players take control of the once antagonists, the pigs. It is set to feature all new, never-before-seen gameplay, where no slingshots will be used whatsoever. Mikael Hed, CEO of Rovio says:

There's a lot of empathy towards the lovable enemies from the Angry Birds games, and we've been constantly asked: what about the pigs' side of the story? Bad Piggies gives you the chance to play as the second-most-loved characters in the Angry Birds universe, and explore this rich world through their green eyes.

Bad Piggies launches on September 27 on iOS, Android and Mac platforms, with Windows Phone, Windows 8 and PC versions to follow shortly after.
