‘Flappy Bird’ creator Dong Nguyen may put the game back on the app store
Dong Nguyen removed the game “Flappy Bird” from the App Store about a month ago and now he is considering putting the game back and release new games. Nguyen was tracked down by Rolling Stone in Hanoi, Vietnam where he was hiding at a friend’s house and has been avoiding media requests.
Now he is feeling a bit better after being out of the spotlight for a while. Here is an excerpt from the Rolling Stone article:
“Since taking Flappy Bird down, he says he’s felt ‘relief. I can’t go back to my life before, but I’m good now.’ As for the future of his flapper, he’s still turning down offers to purchase the game. Nguyen refuses to compromise his independence. But will Flappy Bird ever fly again? ‘I’m considering it,’ Nguyen says. He’s not working on a new version, but if he ever releases one it will come with a ‘warning,’ he says: ‘Please take a break.'”
Nguyen is also working on a cowboy-themed shooter game and an action chess game. He is also working on a vertical flying game called Kitty Jetpack. One of the games will be released this month.
