Earlier this year, a simple but addictive game called Flappy Bird caught everyone’s attention on the internet. 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 newfound success.
However it wasn’t too long after that Flappy Bird’s creator, Dong Ha Nguyen, stated that he plans to bring the game back, and according to a recent interview with CNBC’s Kelly Evans, it seems that we now have a timeframe, which is sometime in August, although no specific dates were mentioned.
According to Nguyen, the sequel to Flappy Bird will apparently feature “less addictive” gameplay, although we’re not sure if that’s a good thing when it comes to video games. After all, addictive games are usually the better ones, no? He also stated that there will be a multiplayer aspect added to the game, but we’re not sure how that will work out.
We have to wonder if the sequel to the original game will be as good as the first one. The first game took everyone by surprise by its simple gameplay and retro graphics, meaning that we didn’t expect much. Now that everyone has had a taste of Flappy Bird, you can bet that Nguyen is feeling the pressure to deliver a newer and better version of the game.
