Angry Birds Maker Rovio Innovates With... Kart Racer

By Gary Cutlack on at

Developer Rovio, which has been reliably churning out new iterations of its simplistic physics smash Angry Birds for years, has had an amazing new idea. It's creating a go-kart racer. Where does it get these crazy ideas from?

The new game is called Angry Birds Go!, a title which the maker says is the result of some in-house experiments with "new" game concepts. We'd hate to see the ones it rejected.

No footage or images of the new game are available yet, just a YouTube teaser video, which reveals it's likely to be a promotional tie-in with Red Bull. [YouTube via Kotaku]
