Angry Birds on Google+!

Espoo, Finland – August 11, 2011 – Angry Birds on Google+ is an ongoing HTML 5 project that lets users share game updates with friends, participate in leaderboards, brag about their achievements, unlock special social levels, and invite people to play. Following its successful mobile gaming strategy, Rovio will continually bring in exciting new features based on user feedback.

The more than 10 million people already on Google+ can now enjoy Angry Birds as a social experience. By playing with everyone from best friends to grandmothers, users can forge new bonds by popping some pigs together on the new social network.

“Angry Birds for Google+ Games is a great start, but it’s just our first step in social gaming,” said Mikael Hed, CEO of Rovio. “As our fans know, we constantly look for ways to update and innovate our products. We want to delight our users by going way beyond what they were expecting. Social gaming is going to be massive, and

we’re very excited about what we have coming up next.”

Angry Birds on Google+ will gradually become available to everyone, but for people currently outside the limited trial, the game can also be found for mobile and web. Angry Birds is available in high definition in the Chrome Web Store: Angry Birds Chrome
