Goo Technologies, the leader in HTML5 high-end graphics for ads and interactive experiences on the web and the company behind the Goo cloud platform, today announced it is launching Angry Birds Go! Create. It is made available through the Rovio Fun Learning offering as part of the EU Code Week.

“We’re proud to be a part of EU Code Week,” said Rikard Herlitz, co-founder and CTO of Goo Technologies. “It’s crucial for the next generation to learn about the possibilities of creativity online. Gaming in particular is an area that engages so many children. We think combining these two ideas can really foster a growing interest around digital creation from the younger European population. Angry Birds Go! Create is a good example of how Rich 3D experiences built on the Goo platform are perfect entry points.”
