Angry Birds may not be the absolute cultural force it was after the original game was released in 2009, but there has been a steady release of games featuring the mobile avian icons. There have been RPGs, pinball games, match-3 puzzle games, bubble pop games, vehicle builders, and even a VR game that has involved walking around 3D arenas and flinging birds and your enemies from every angle.
That last game, known as Angry Birds VR: Isle of Pigs, will soon be getting a level editor.
The level builder will make use of players' creative urges, rather than their destructive ones, giving them access to all the game's pigs, birds and building blocks as they make their own structures. These structures are, of course, designed to be destroyed by anyone playing them, but who doesn't enjoy seeing their masterpieces getting demolished?
The first version of the builder will only allow players to share their levels with anyone in earshot that's willing to indulge them for a few minutes. Developer Resolution Games hopes that in the future, an online system will exist to let players share their creations for the entire world to destroy.
“We have been working on this level builder technology for some time and are very excited to have it make its debut in Angry Birds VR: Isle of Pigs,” said Tommy Palm, CEO and co-founder of Resolution Games. “With our upcoming release, players will have the power to show their creativity in ways we could never imagine. We can’t wait to see what the fans come up with!”
Angry Birds VR was released in February of 2019, and is currently availablevfor $14.99 on the Oculus Store, Steam, Viveport, and the Playstation store. The level builder will be released during the "holiday season," though an exact date has not yet been announced.
