Flappy Bird, everyone's favourite hyper-addictive smartphone game, may be making its way back to your cell's screen...and eat up even more hours of your life.
Dong Nguyn, creator of Flappy Bird, in an interview with Rolling Stone, said he's "considering" re-releasing the game. If (and hopefully when) Nuyen does, the game will come with an arguably needed warning of "Please take a break."
Nguyen's exciting announcement/reconsideration comes in the wake of the sudden closure of Flappy Bird. After becoming viral in early 2014 (downloaded more than 50 million times and Nguyen earning around $50, 000/day) Flapy Bird was suddenly taken out of the mobile game.
Nguyen later explained how he wanted a quick and easy game people could play while bored and relax, not devote hours and hours of game time. So, Nguyen said 'fuck it' to the money and removed Flappy Bird. Gotta hand it to someone with that much artistic integrity.
As of now, Flappy Bird is in limbo, but given popular demand and the sheer money-making opportunity of the game's re-release, I bet Flappy Bird will be making an official return very soon.
