Stalbow also revealed that China is the game's second largest and fastest growing market. The company recently released an update for the Chinese Moon Festival in an attempt to appeal to Chinese players. Rovio will soon release an update for Halloween that will introduce a secret, new bird (we know that it's yellow and looks a bit like a duck).
Several years ago, the company was working on games for publishers like EA. It was on the brink of collapse before it turned to social and mobile platform platforms. At one point, the company had nine employees, but now it has more than 170 employees worldwide.
