Flappy Bird creator Dong Nguyen has had an interesting year.
When 2014 started most people had never heard his name, but by the end of January he was making around $50K a day off his hit smartphone app Flappy Bird!
But then things went downhill!
After allegations of plagiarism, reports of video game addiction, and, well, too much unwanted/overbearing press, the young Vietnamese software designer pulled his wildly popular game off of virtual shelves in February!
But the story doesn’t end there!!!
An intrepid Rolling Stone reporter traveled to Southeast Asia to interview Dong and – guess what – he’s working on more wonderful games!
According to the interview, he’s in the process of finishing several games – “an untitled cowboy-themed shooter, a vertical flying game called Kitty Jetpack, and an ‘action chess game’” called Checkonaut.
Like Flappy Bird, all three of these new games will be super simple! They’ll also feature the same retro graphics and EXTREME difficulty!
Yay! We’re sure Flappy fans will be lining up to try them!
