Life after Angry Birds: Former Rovio devs enjoy more freedom with their new studio (interview)

GamesBeat: Rovio Entertainment’s Angry Birds franchise is huge — it sold 8 million copies on Christmas day alone. You can find the games on phones, tablets, and even consoles. And you can barely walk outside without seeing its brightly colored mascots plastered on all sorts of merchandise. So who in their right mind would leave that all behind?

Last year, we found three of them: Tuomas Erikoinen, Ilkka Halila, and Antti Stén. They all left their jobs at Rovio to form Boomlagoon, a new independent mobile-game studio based in Helsinki, Finland. Its first title, Noble Nutlings, is out now for free for iOS devices. (iPad, Noble Nutlings)

Hopefully they'll get another crack at making that RPG. Squirrels armed with swords? Count me in!
