A Visit To Rovio, Angry Birds HQ In Helsinki

After a 12-hr overnite flight from S’pore to Helsinki, I was finally able to meet the ‘Father of the Angry Birds’ in person!

Yes, Jaakko Iisalo is Rovio’s Senior Game Designer & is also the creator of the popular Angry Birds; a puzzle game for touchscreen smartphones that has became a worldwide phenomenon. Even his name card is so cool!

I know all of you are anxious & are shouting for pix, pix, pix! Now, I’m gonna bring you around Rovio office, the Headquarter of the Angry Birds:

This was the first sight that greeted me when I stepped out from the elevator. My heart was racing & just couldn’t wait for more surprises.

Walk along the hallway & there were all these fluffy #AngryBirds staring at you. Wouldn't you like to work in such a fun-loving environment?

Just look at this cosy room with all the plush cushions. Can you guess what this room is for?

In no time, the presentation commenced where the team was introduced to the history & making of the Angry Birds etc, right in this luxurious room. I've complied some of the slides for your viewing pleasure:

After the presentation, we were entertained by Angry Birds range of merchandise. Awed silence was suddenly busted by the sound of clicking, as cameras from the audience rushed to capture the perfect moment.

#Rovio has done it again! Other than a record-breaking 300 million game downloads, a line of merchandises that’s doing extremely well, they’ve also launched an #AngryBirdsCookbook! For those who’re into cooking, check it out!

So can anyone just pop up at the HQ for a visit? Nope! Only invited guests are allowed into this fun office. Love the VIP piggy pass that I've got!

Here’s leaving you with some of Angry Birds’ Fan Art & My Cooking while I join the team for a nice lunch @ I’d Reindeer Meat @ Salutorget Scandinavian Bistro, Helsinki:
