Flappy Bird to Return in August with New Multiplayer Support

We knew Flappy Bird would fly again, but now according to the developer, we could expect the addictive game to make a return in August with multiplayer support!

For those of you that do not remember, Developer Dong Nguyen shocked users around the world when he tweeted that he was going to take down the game. "I am sorry 'Flappy Bird' users," it read. "22 hours from now, I will take 'Flappy Bird' down. I cannot take this anymore." Nguyen was pulling in $50,000 a day from advertising revenue because of the game before pulling it.

As promised, the game was removed hours later. Almost immediately, game developers rushed to fill the void with similar games such as Flappy Flyer, Flappy Wings, and others flooding the App Store.

Nguyen revealed that the took down the game because the attention became too much to handle. Paparazzi besieged his parents' house. He couldn't go anywhere without been spotted. "It is something I never want," he tweeted. "Please give me peace." A few months later, he announced the game would make a return.

Nguyen has told a CNBC reporter the game would return in August with multiplayer support. Hopefully this time it is here to stay.

It's basically the same game but it's not by the same Dong Nguyen from what I understand. They're either impostors trying to capitalize on the originals success or it's really him creating different games under different names and he's actually been screwing with everybody this whole time. But I highly doubt that. His original company or developer name is .Gears Studios. He currently only has 2 games in the store. Search his name and the first 2 games are his. All others are impostors in my opinion, using dotGear, and .Gears. Scroll down to the bottom of the app pages and you'll see what I mean.

Do people still actually play this game? I guess the same people that keep 5 year old newspapers for reading material... People who still play "flappy bird" really should start paying their mom rent for her basement bedroom. Flappy Birds... Honestly, Elvis has been dead for almost 40 years and still has fans, guess people like their old, tired, decrepit news. Can't account for taste, but you can account for rent for moms basement. Pay her, dweebs.
