At first these wingless, feet-less birds were first created without a story or game in mind. After playing around with the plot Angry Birds was created! Angry Birds started with people not knowing what to draw. Artists played around with characters a couple hours a day. Finally wingless birds with no feet came up. Then green pigs came up because of the 2009 swine flu epidemic. They wanted to build a story with characters and eventually to develop a brand. After many hours of coding and design, the game was born. It was more of a side project than anything when finally one of the creators went home for dinner and noticed his mom couldn't put the game down. He realized they might be on to something. In December of 2009 they finally launched the game.
