Birds, the world's most popular smart phone game, today
continues its platform leap from mobile to the PC with a licensing
agreement between the game's developer, Rovio,
Cosmi, the 30-year-old, value software publisher and distributor. PC
desktop versions of the original Angry Birds and its two new
Birds Space and Angry
Birds Seasons, are now available at a wide range
of US retailers, including Walmart,
on CD ROM at a MSRP of $9.99 for one title and $19.99 for a bundle of
all three titles.
Each title also includes a collectable mini poster of these lovingly
irritable, yet addicting, feathered friends.
Downloaded over 1
billion times globally across various platforms and versions since
its 2009 debut, the immensely popular game has already reached pop
culture status, catapulting its way into retail in the form of Angry
Birds merchandise, including stuffed
toys and board games.
"The vast popularity of Angry Birds is quickly understood by
anyone that has ever played the game," says Steve Graham, COO of
ValuSoft Cosmi. "We are thrilled to be able to take Angry Birds
to the PC world through our national retailer network in the US."
