Earlier this year, Flappy Bird was an internet sensation. However, instead of capitalizing on his success, the creator of the game removed it from app stores, claiming that people were getting too addicted, and also because he did not know how to handle his success. Yeah, it was weird. Many think that Nintendo pressured him. We may never know what really happened.
Soon after this, Flappy Bird’s creator, Dong Ha Nguyen, said that he had plans to bring the game back, and according to a recent interview with CNBC’s Kelly Evans, it may arrive in August, although we don’t have any specific dates.
It sounds like the sequel to Flappy Bird will feature “less addictive” gameplay and there will also be a multiplayer aspect added to the game. After all this time, will anyone care? The internet is a fickle mistress and maybe people have moved on. Then again, maybe they have been waiting for this game and anxious about it. We will have to see. He probably feels pressured to deliver a huge success since his first game was so well received.
