'Flappy Bird' might flap again, but creator is still worried about addiction

Flappy Bird creator Dong Nguyen said in a recent interview that he's "considering" re-releasing Flappy Bird.

But if he does, the game will come with a new warning to "please take a break" once in a while, Nguyen told Rolling Stone.

The Vietnamese game developer took the game down in February because he was worried about people being addicted to it. He says he received messages from people admonishing him for creating something children had become addicted to, and heard horror stories about ruined lives.

But even if Flappy Bird doesn't come back Nguyen will release more games. He's working on three right now, he told Rolling Stone: a cowboy shooter, an action chess game called Checkonaut, and another called Kitty Jetpack. One will be released this month, Nguyen said.
