The 99-cent game, in which you play a tiny bird learning to fly, certainly gave Angry Birds a run for its money, ousting the other avian-themed game from its top spot several times in the months following its release in February last year.

Its beautiful design and simple one-touch gameplay has made it one of the most popular apps for iOS.

Creator Andreas Illiger tweeted over the weekend that the sequel is finally coming, with a gorgeous handmade teaser video featuring a hand-crank music box — and hinting at the end that perhaps another bird is on the way.

Tiny Wings 2 is due on the app store Thursday, 12 July.
