After staging the most abrupt of all abandonments, who would have though Flappy Bird creator Dong Nguyen would bring the game back online some day? Here’s news that indicates that he just might do the same. The Vietnamese developer has now revealed that he’s ‘considering’ putting the game back online for download.
Rolling Stone magazine held an interview with him in which he gave away the possibility. He was asked whether Flappy Bird will ever be made available again, to which he replied, ‘I’m considering it.’ And that’s not all; Nguyen was quick to specify that if at all the app is put back online, it will carry a warning which will say, ‘Please take a break.’
Flappy Bird was released back in May last year, and was just another app among the thousands of other such games available for mobile platforms. But all started to change early this year, when it started going viral all of a sudden. Its sub-standard (or retro?) visuals and its simple yet addictive nature were the points which helped make it such a big hit.
The game invoked havoc on the Google Play store and the Apple App Store, and didn’t take much time to grab global popularity. It was at one point reported that Flappy Bird was helping Dong Nguyen earn $50,000 per day through ads. But all that was brought to an end abruptly by him when he took the game offline, owing strangely to the fact that it was addictive.
Like we said, Flappy Bird might be made available again, but there’s no surety on the matter. In the meantime, you can take a look at these similar games to know what the said title has on offer.
