Legendary animator Don Bluth is…well, a legend. His hand help create some of the most acclaimed and beloved Disney films of all time (Robin Hood, The Sword and the Stone, The Jungle Book, to name a few), but he’s perhaps best known in gaming circles for his work on the arcade classic Dragon’s Lair, which has been released on pretty much every gaming platform imaginable since its release in the early 1980s.

Last year, Bluth founded his own development company, Square One Studios, which today released its first title, Tapper World Tour, an iOS reinterpretation of the arcade hit Tapper. We saw the game a few weeks back at GDC, and you can check out our preview for all the details. We also had a chance to sit down with Mr. Bluth at that time as well to talk about the legacy of Dragon’s Lair, his creative philosophies, and the lost art of hand-drawn animation.

Sword & Sworcery EP, the upcoming iPhone/iPad title from superbrothers, has a new video up. "Audience Calibration Procedure" presents an even more surreal look into this haunting title that uses retro graphics and a sense of wonder to create something new ... if not trippy. We took a look at the game back in October, and it is definitely on our radar. But don't just take my yakkin' for granted. Watch the video above and see what you think.

Angry Birds at GDC

Peter Vesterbacka, the "Mighty Eagle" at Rovio just announced during their GDC panel that Angry Birds St. Patricks Day is coming soon as part of Angry Birds Seasons. Does that mean we can expect drunken birds? They're already angry, after all. Little flingable leprechaun birds would as happy as well. Expect it sometime "Well before St. Patrick's Day."

They also spoke briefly about the Angry Birds Rio game, meant to tie-in with the upcoming animated film. "We could make it work nicely with Angry Birds and the backstory. It could be the first time the birds leave the island, and are kidnapped by smugglers. This is not one of these lame movie games, but a separate game that works nicely with teh movie."

Angry Birds Rio is due out on March 22, and will retail for $.99 on Apple's App Store.

 







G4 Is Heading To GDC 2011!

Hey, Feed faithful! This year’s Game Developers Conference is just around the corner, and we here at G4 are in the final planning stages as we prepare to bring you all of the breaking news, interviews, previews, panel discussions, rumors and videos your precious game-loving brains can handle straight from one of the year's biggest gatherings in the games industry.

GDC 2011 officially kicks off Monday, February 28 and lasts through March 4, and G4tv.com will be all over it like some kind of incurable developer conference fungus, only…you know…not as gross. We’re expecting to see plenty of big name titles at the show, from Battlefield 3 to The Darkness 2 to, perhaps, the new game from Epic Games that was previously rumored to be announced at the show. In other words, lots of good stuff.

In addition to the countless number of fascinating panels and roundtables, another big highlight will obviously be the keynote presentation from Nintendo president Satoru Iwata, in which he may or may not announce that Wii Points have become the official currency of the universe. It’s more likely that he’ll stick to the keynote topic, “Video Games Turn 25: A Historical Perspective and Vision for the Future,” but we’ll see.

So keep your eyes and ears glued to G4tv.com starting next week for all of the latest updates from this year’s big show.

The child in the video below may be the luckiest youngster on earth. His parents made him an Angry Birds birthday cake... that actually plays Angry Birds. Must be seen to be believed!
