Flappy Bird may have been a global sensation in its own right, but nothing brought birds and smartphones together like Angry Birds. Rovio’s flagship title has since spread to a plethora of form factors and platforms. The company continues to update the title once in a while, add new levels and select new themes to build the infamous bird slinging game on. Recently it has been teasing a whole new Angry Birds title, one that could stray from tradition. Called Angry Birds Epic, its going to be a turn based RPG.
Wait a minute here, what do you mean by Flappy Bird going gold? Isn’t the game like, removed more than a month back, leading to some rather insane ads for smartphones that still had Flappy Bird installed on them? That would certainly imply a game that is complete and working just fine, without having to go ‘gold’, which is normally reserved for a title that is ready for a commercial release. The ‘gold’ that I am referring to here would be a literal one, as a solid gold Flappy Bird has appeared in an online auction – which is a totally different kind of expected resurrection.
