As Earth passes through
another Equinox and you mark the occasion by staying indoors and
playing videogames, Rovio's doing its bit for earthly awareness of
what's going on Up There. The company's educational measure is
admittedly a little self-serving, as it involves tomorrow's release of the
space-themed installment in its phenomenally popular Angry Birds
series. Here's the trailer.
Having roped in the
assistance of NASA's Don Pettit for the first Angry Birds Space: Gameplay clip, the company's all out of spacebound testimonials;
however, diligent Twitter-stalkers will note that this latest clip
does find room for the glowing endorsement of one @fourzerotwo, AKA
Infinity Ward creative strategist Robert Bowling. And if the brains
of Modern Warfare 3 can find time to fling some birds into orbit,
surely even you grizzled hardcore-only toughniks can stretch to
seeing what all the fuss is about?
