Dong Nguyen Announces Plans To Take Down Flappy Bird

Vietnamese indie game developer Dong Nguyen has announced he intends to take down Flappy Bird, presumably both for iOS and Android.

Flappy Bird was originally uploaded on the iPhone App Store on May 2013, but did not get any attention until a sudden spike in interest in November that year. As of this month, the game had been making $ 50,000 a day, but Nguyen admits he does not even know what made it a success. Nguyen has also been the target of much criticism, with people questioning if he got this attention using bots, if he stole assets from Nintendo games, and just a lot of general, but unsavory, trolling.
