Are you such an Angry Birds fan that you just cannot wait for the next game out of Rovio? Luckily, for you, that time seems to be coming soon. As noted by The Next Web, Rovio’s CEO announced on a Finnish TV channel that the Angry Birds successor is called “Amazing Alex.” The game will have an educational aspect, and it will be based around “a curious young boy who loves to build things.” Rovio is looking to the game Casey’s Contraptions as a building block.

Making this game high quality is key for Rovio —if they want this game to have a huge success like Angry Birds. Angry Birds is considered one of the most popular mobile games of all times. It hit a total of 1 billion downloads, which helped push the company to a first-quarter revenue of 75.4 million euros ($106,3 million USD). Those kinds of numbers for Amazing Alex will be hard to come by.

Rovio’s CEO Mikael Hed is aware he needs to keep those standards. He said “quality pressure is high,” and they want “to maintain the high standard Angry Birds fans have come to enjoy.”

The release date for the new game was not given.
