Rovio ain't angry: $194m in revenue, 45 percent from toys

A record year for the casual games company

Who says you have to make AAA console games to make money? While the big guys are shutting down left and right, Rovio flings off their financial results for 2012 showing that they're growing at an amazing rate. The Espoo, Finland-based company has doubled revenue over last year, raking in €152.2 million ($194.9 million) this year, with their total game download count now weighing in at 1.7 billion.

Aside from their hit games like Angry Birds Space, Angry Birds Star Wars, Amazing Alex, and Bad Piggies, their consumer products division (read: Angry Birds toys) has done really well for them, accounting for 45 percent of total revenue for 2012.

Everything at Rovio is doubling, it seems. Even the staff has grown from 224 to 518 for 2012.
