The resourceful pigs that have served as the foe in hit mobile title Angry Birds will star in their own game later this month.

Rovio announced Bad Piggies will launch Sept. 27 for Apple's iOS, Google Android and Macs. Versions for PC, Windows Phone and Windows 8 will follow soon after.

The studio is promising a very different approach to gameplay compared with Angry Birds, which has players flinging powered-up birds with a slingshot at well-guarded pigs.

"We've had a lot of fun creating a totally new and unique gameplay experience," said Petri Järvilehto, Rovio's executive vice president of games, in a statement. "There's so much more to these pigs than what is seen in the Angry Birds games, and Bad Piggies is the first glimpse into what's going on in the imaginative and ingenious minds of the pigs."

No additional details on the game were given outside the teaser posted below:

Angry Birds has been a massive hit for Rovio since its launch in late 2009. In May, the company revealed its franchise topped 1 billion downloads.
