Flappy Bird Might Return With An Addiction Warning

More than a month has passed since Vietnamese indie developer, Dong Nguyen, took down Flappy Bird from iOS App Store and Google Play Store. In an interview with Rolling Stones, Nguyen has finally clarified the reasons behind his decision, what he's been doing since then and what he plans to do going forward.

In addition to media pressure on his personal life, Nguyen felt that Flappy Bird was too addictive for a lot of players. After receiving a few emails from people claiming to have lost their jobs because they kept playing Flappy Bird, he decided to take the game down for good.

Taking the game off the app stores didn't stop the money streams from in-game ads of already-installed copies though. This allowed Nguyen to quit his day job and focus on developing other mobile games. He is currently working on several titles, including an action chess game called Checkonaut and a flying game called Kitty Jetpack.

At the moment, Nguyen isn't really sure whether he'll keep Flappy Bird of the stores forever, but he's sure that if it ever does become available again, it will come with a warning: "Please take a break."

Flappy Dong

Gooks are so weird. Flappy Dong with his Pussy Jetpack. The gook's a liar. This is all bullshit PR hype to increase interest & demand. Can ya (CAPTCHA) "smell that"?

Fag Much

Would you be more inclined to use that tone if it were some jack ass living in your town making good money? He at least sold something people like buying and is an indie game developer. What have you done? Besides waste ten seconds of your short lived life.

Might return, my ass.

Might return, my ass. Korean piece of shit. This game was made in 2-3 days, using NO EFFORT, STOLEN GRAPHICAL ASSETS, using a gameplay mechanic that is both UNFUN and THIRTY FUCKING YEARS OLd. The only reason this shit got popular is because pewdickhead mother fucking had it in his retarded video. Disgusting. DISGUSTING. Korean trash will not be able to put it back on the store because of the STOLEN ASSETS. Nintendo is aware of his shit now, I'm fairly sure they wouldn't let him. Or atleast I god damned hope so. Let the mindless vermin suffer.

One minority, two minority,

One minority, two minority, same fucking thing. I love Japan and Japanese people but Koreans? All they're famous for is dying in internet cafes playing starcraft, the stupid fucks. Vietnamese lol. Who gives a shit, like seriously XD.

If you are going to start

If you are going to start trolling here could you at least register a name so we know which posts are yours? That way we wont waste our time trying to read the ignorant, pathetic, racist hate that spews from that pile of shit that you call your brain.

Oh look.

Oh look. Another nameless, faceless, spineless, *worthless* Internet retard giving his worthless, unasked-for opinion on someone superior to him. Disgusting xbox live playing unintelligent animals. The more you raise dumb shit up for vermin like THIS? Stupid shit like flappy bird? The more you ruin what's left of this race's "pride". Destroying gaming as well as letting VERMIN have money they are not allowed to have. Do you know how many hundreds of thousands of you should be killed?

So you are calling him

So you are calling him "nameless and faceless", but are you any different? You hide behind "Anonymous" while you intentionally anger others for no reason. It seems to me that not only are you the "nameless, faceless, spineless, *worthless* Internet retard" but you are also a racist, ignorant, hypocrite.
