Rovio has revealed the first gameplay footage of the upcoming Bad Piggies, and it’s quite different than expected. It appears as if the ferocious fowl of Angry Birds will have little to do here, as the goal is to build vehicles out of the wood used to build the structures that usually hold the pigs, and get them to the goal. Differently-sized pigs will have different physics effects on the vehicle, and special parts will make the vehicle react in different ways when activated.
Comments have been made as to the game’s similarities to a 2D version of Banjo-Kazooie: Nuts & Bolts which involved building vehicles. Interestingly, this fits in well with Amazing Alex with both being games about building contraptions. Rovio may be aiming for deeper games, ones about creativity, as different vehicle layouts will be possible through the use of the different materials. The game launches on September 27th, and we’ll have plenty to say about it as soon as it is available. Until then, check out the video footage on Yahoo.
