Is this the return of Flappy Bird? Creator Dong Nguyen has spoken out and stated that he might be bringing his simple yet addictive game back to the mobile market.
According to a report from the Rolling Stone, Flappy Bird creator Dong Nguyen may be returning his beloved game back to the IOS and Android market. A few months ago, Nguyen removed Flappy Bird from the mobile market after the game skyrocketed to the top. With the full media coverage over the game and millions of players, Dong Nguyen suddenly removed the game from stores.
When asked why he took the game down, Nguyen wrote on his Twitter:
“I am sorry ‘Flappy Bird’ users, 22 hours from now, I will take ‘Flappy Bird’ down. I cannot take this anymore. It is not anything related to legal issues. I just cannot keep it anymore. “
However, Nguyen told the Rolling Stone that he is considering bringing back the game. Nguyen also stated that the gaming app was bringing $50,000 a day. Nguyen pulled the game after he felt it had become too addictive and destructive to its users. Reports of Flappy Bird players throwing and destroying their phones over the game was a cause of concern for Nguyen.
Although Nguyen still feels the game might be harmful to some, he may be bringing the game back. However, the Flappy Bird developer noted that it will now come with a warning label advising players to take a break.
