Rovio’s Story

Rovio is now a global entertainment company, but back in 2003 we started off with just three guys in a college dorm. By 2009 we were struggling and decided to go all-in on a new game called Angry Birds™ – our 52nd title that became a pop-culture phenomenon and industry game-changer. The age of mobile blockbuster apps had begun. Fast forward to today and we’re expanding further into animation, publishing, licensing and other exciting areas to bring even more stories and offbeat characters to the world. And we always do things with an open mind and playful can-do attitude.
