I wonder if he is going to take advantage of all of the obsessed flappers to make even more profits. Iap? I could definitely see him putting in some sort of timer because he is so "concerned"about people's addition. Idk, maybe he is truly sincere about what he said in the past. It seems that this flappy crap will never stop.

It mightn't got easy. Seriously, I think people have been sick with all flappy bird clone. Put it back won't affect anything... Well, may be at first but not for a long time. Right now, there's new trend on the app store after flappy bird, so many dev made threes clones #sigh

Threes clones! That makes me sick. I haven't seen anything like that in the App Store.

I met Dong at GDC, and having seen the person behind all this, the incessant amount of shit everyone insists on talking about him and Flappy Bird is even more disheartening.

He does seem to be a decent guy but I knew the game was going to come back despite him saying it wasn't. Not saying its a clever marketing ploy but i'm sure we all knew along it would come back

What's the end game if this is a marketing ploy? Dude straight up didn't want Flappy Bird complicating his life. He's a vietnamese indie developer who very clearly doesn't have a brain that works in the same way that westerners do in that the sole motivation for doing anything is more money/success.

I recon FB will be coming out mid-late year. Like Eli said he doesn't want to be making games like this for the rest of his life.

I never knew he was actually sincere and was a good guy. If that's the case then I am glad for his success. I thought this entire thing was some sort of marketing ploy. If this happened to most most people then they would milked the crap out of this thing and would have taken advantage of everyone. It's reassuring that you met him in person. I completely trust your judgement.

Yeah, after meeting him I can say with 100% certainty that what we're seeing is basically the iOS gaming equivalent of the running scene from Forrest Gump. He just wants to run, and everyone else wants to apply some kind of meaning to it or otherwise tag along. I'd stop too.
