Angry Birds rose to fame in 2010. I will never forget logging on to my website seeing thousands and thousands of hits – people were all over my Angry Birds Cheats post! I knew right then and there that this Angry Birds thing was going to be huge.
By the time 2015 hit, the Angry Birds game had been downloaded over three billion times collectively. The game hit mass and was just not on the iPhone, but xBox, Android – even on pre-installed on our smart TV!
From shirts to stuffed animals – sheesh, there was even an Angry Birds Amusement park! Let’s look at the rise of the birds.
Rise of the Angry Birds
Over the years, I tracked the rise of the Angry Birds movement. From a simple iPhone app to a huge movie and merchandise franchise – Angry Birds is massive and still growing. Just when I think the trend has finally died, another new something pops up!
I had the privilege of meeting the Angry Birds creator at SXSW. Created by Rovio Entertainment, in Finland – the company has seen crazy success with this game.
