After Rovio’s immense success with the Angry Birds franchise, it is now planning to introduce a new game called Amazing Alex. The announcement came from company CEO Mikael Hed while being interviewed on a breakfast TV show.
Talking about the game, Hed said “The quality pressure is high. We want to maintain the high standard Angry Birds fans have come to enjoy”. He also added that the game will feature an educational element revolving around the main character Alex, who is portrayed as a curious young boy with a passion to build things.
The title is a rebranding of Casey’s Contraptions, which Rovio bought from developers Noel Llopis and Miguel A. Friginal earlier this month. Casey’s Contraptions is another physics-based game along the lines of Angry Birds. The game features Rube Goldberg-type contraptions that are made from items like balloons, soccer balls, scissors and buckets.
