The lights are on
Angry Birds developer Rovio is branching out with Angry Birds Epic – a turn-based RPG. See it in action for the first time.
Angry Birds Epic is free, and includes a weapon-crafting system, leveling, character classes, and other genre staples. It's unclear how or if microtransactions will be utilized.
The game is now out in Australia and Canada, and will be hitting the U.S. iOS and Android stores some unspecified time later this year.

Hm. This just might be a way to get me to play some form of Angry Birds.
Hot dog! Just what I've been waiting for!
Having just played South Park TSoT, I'm kind of digging the turn based combat.
If this game is still $0.99, that would be truly epic.
Eh, at least they're trying something newish. F the free to play model, though.
I hope they charge $4.99 or less and don't use a microtransaction system.
Looks like an interesting direction for the franchise. I respect that they're at least trying new things.
I might give this a shot.
Downloaded it on my 4S but there appears to be problems. It doesn't load past the Loading Audio Container screen.
so it went from a puzzel game to a racing game to an RPG just an excuse to make more moneu
