I am sorry 'Flappy Bird' users, 22 hours from now, I will take 'Flappy Bird' down. I cannot take this anymore.— Dong Nguyen (@dongatory) February 8, 2014
The creator of the title has been accused of lifting art assets from other, more recognizable video games, but he insists that the decision to pull the title has nothing to do with legal action.
It is not anything related to legal issues. I just cannot keep it anymore.— Dong Nguyen (@dongatory) February 8, 2014
Instead, it seems as if the game developer is no longer to deal with the almost ceaseless torrent of online vitriol towards his title and its unexplainable rocketing in popularity. So much so, that Nguyen went as far to tweet that the game has ruined his life.
I can call 'Flappy Bird' is a success of mine. But it also ruins my simple life. So now I hate it.— Dong Nguyen (@dongatory) February 8, 2014
Also, Nguyen has no plans to sell the game to anyone, so don't bother asking.
I also don't sell 'Flappy Bird', please don't ask.— Dong Nguyen (@dongatory) February 8, 2014
