The Croods From Rovio Gets Its First Trailer Ahead Of March 14 Release


Rovio has taken some time away from Angry Birds and Bad Piggies to focus on its next project, the official game for the upcoming DreamWorks movie The Croods. Believe it or not, it’s not a physics-based puzzle game, and Rovio has released the game’s first trailer to prove it.

The Croods appears to be more of a building a management simulator, kind of like FarmVille and games of that ilk — only it’s set in the Stone Age, like the movie.

Rovio has a description for the game to go with the trailer, which reads:

Meet the world’s first modern family: The Croods! These cavemen are breaking out of the Stone Age with the use of a new r-evolutionary tool: the IDEA! The Croods will Hunt & Gather their way through spectacular new landscapes as they tame fantastic and never-seen-before creatures. Help The Croods survive the wild…and each other!

The Croods is coming to Android, iOS, and Amazon’s Kindle Fire tablets on March 14. It’s be completely free to download, but we suspect there will be plenty of in-app purchases for you to spend your cash on.
