Angry Birds dev Rovio making tie-in game for DreamWorks' The Croods

DreamWorks' latest animated blockbuster, The Croods, is getting a tie-in iOS and Android game courtesy of Angry Birds developer Rovio. The game, due March 14, takes the film's prehistoric family and throws them into a caveman sim, apparently. You can hunt and gather, catch weird creatures, and cultivate your own little patch of the Paleolithic Age.

The Croods isn't Rovio's first movie tie-in, but it is the studio's first one outside of Angry Birds. Commercially speaking, that makes this game a whole different kettle of fish - or birds - or cave-birds. Maybe they should've gone with cave-birds.
