Bad Piggies is the new game coming out from the stable of Rovio, the creator of the ever so popular Angry Birds franchise. While its release date for iOS, Android and Mac has been revealed to be September 27, 2012, the developer hasn’t mentioned when it will be made available for Windows Phone, Windows 8 and PC.

This new title acts as a spin-off to the series, and for the first time ever, offers gamers a chance to play as the pigs. This calls for fresh gameplay which has been taken care of by Rovio by letting go of the slingshot mechanic present in other AB games. The new elements that will make their way into this game are still to be revealed.

“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,” commented Mikael Hed, CEO of Rovio.

Bad Piggies, the new game under the famed Angry Birds franchise will be hitting the App Store, the Google Play Store and the Mac App Store on September 27. It pricing is still to be confirmed.
