Stop the presses!

Back in March, Flappy Bird developer Dong Nguyen told the world that Flappy Bird — the game that killed time, destroyed lives — would one day return the Google Play Store, just not anytime soon. It appears we now have a better idea of when to expect the game to make its triumphant return to mobile, thanks to an interview with CNBC.

In the interview, Nguyen says he’s working on a new, less addictive version of the game that will introduce gameplay element: multiplayer. If that doesn’t sound even more addictive, I don’t know what does. The game is set to release in August.

We now return you to your normally scheduled programming.

        What’s better Astroglide or KY?

        • No_Nickname90

          I’ve never heard of Astroglide. I thought that was an app, so I was about to search for it on my work computer, then I read “KY”…

    stop giving this garbage app the attention it doesn’t deserve.

  • supremekizzle

    People became way too obsessed with this shi!++y game.

    He must’ve ran out of all the money he made already.

    This is one of the stupidest games ever invented

    • Durin123

      Guess that makes millions of us stupid for liking it. Then again, people voted for George W Bush and he was borderlining on having a speech impediment.

      • WhoaManWtF

        He just lacks the cognitive facilities to form a sentence he is perfectly capable of speaking.

    Had this on my phone since it came out. Good time waster, but not sure why people were asking the ridiculous prices they were for phones that had it.

    • No_Nickname90

      IKR!? I mean, the game was alright, but WTF!? It’s not that cool. Highly overrated.

  • Frank__Grimes

    I still show it in the app store.

    Nguyen will probably go back to his old tricks and reaping ad revenue with bots again.

    “Nguyen says he’s working on a new, less addictive version of the game”

    I don’t believe I’ve ever heard of a developer who wants to make their game less addicting.

      Well there’s a reason he removed it in the first place. He claims because of addiction.
