Angry Birds creator Rovio reveals future plans

Rovio's Angry Birds, the iTunes chart topping Apple iPhone and iPod Touch multi-format app, is one of the most downloaded games of 2011. But where do you go from there? We talk to Peter Vesterbacka, the brains behind everyone's favourite bird-slinging app, on past successes and future ideas...

What’s the secret to building a winning app? How do you top a huge success such as Rovio's Angry Birds app, which recorded over 10m downloads in it's opening 10 days? How do you cope with buyout offers from uber-companies? These are just some of the obvious questions that spring to mind when you mention Rovio's successful entry into the overcrowded Apple iTunes app market with its chart-topping game Angry Birds.

T3 recently caught up with the app studio's Peter Vesterbacka on its future moves and why Rovio believes Angry Birds was such a storming success. Can they possibly top their previous monstrous win? Watch the video interview below to see if the app business looks like your cup of tea:
