Report: Angry Birds devs looking to become publishers

Justin McElroy

Develop reports that Rovio, the team behind the massively successful Angry Birds, is looking to get into the publishing business with a stable of mobile indie devs. "We have some plans for this area, but not ready to announce yet," Rovio executive Peter Vesterbacka told Develop. "If we do something in the publishing area, you can expect it to be a bit different."

Vesterbacka went on to say that the company must either start throwing money into publishing or shoveling it into a fire. "It's really a question of physical space. We have nowhere to put the money. We have no chairs. No break room. Only rooms filled to capacity with money. Every day the man shows up with the truck and he says, 'Peter, I have your money for the day!' and we beg him to go, to leave us in peace, but no. There is always more money. We fear for our lives."
