The Return of the 'Flappy Bird'?

Does the linked image make you shudder, or jump for joy? Whichever of these emotions it evokes, the future may cause the bird to have its wings restored once again. The app's creator, Dong Nguyen, told Rolling Stone in an exclusive interview that he is no longer excluding the idea of placing 'Flappy Bird' back on the market.

 

The modest 28-year-old developer, in an attempt to avoid the extreme publicity he was receiving as a result of the popularity the game aroused, decided to take the app down exactly a month ago. Nguyen explained to the magazine that his motivation for this removal was an attempt to return his life to normal, and get rid of the sour aftertaste the whole experience brought for him.

 

The game, according to Nguyen, was constructed based on the kids' playground game, paddleball. It caused a wave of widespread usage when gamers all over the world--whether young, old, girl, or boy--caught the contagious addiction.

Addiction is an ugly beast, and can evoke the worst in people. After gamers began to waste hours-on-end of precious and limited time, which in today's fast-paced society is unfeasible, Nguyen began to receive messages of a not-so-pretty nature from 'fans,' as they began to blame the creator for their neglecting of daily duties such as going to work, school, meeting deadlines, and so on. The mastery of the game was the hook that dragged everyone towards addiction...

 

As "a master of [his] own fate," and in an attempt to keep his conscience clear, if Nguyen decides on going through with the return, he intends to include a warning, just like those found on cigarette packets, reminding players to 'take a break.' Whether the message will be heeded, only time will tell.
