Famous Flappy Bird creator Dong Nguyen said to Rolling Stone that he is not officially closing the door on the possibility of reintroducing the game that gave him a quick rise to fame.

Flappy Bird was a game that never gained much steam in its early days, but it suddenly exploded in recent months, and Nguyen found himself getting rich quickly. The game was pulling in an estimated $50,000 per day for Nguyen.

The sudden stress from the popularity drove Nguyen to ditch the game entirely as he received a wide variety of feedback about good and bad things to come from the game. Some people enjoyed it while others became addicted. In his interview with Rolling Stone, Nguyen seemed to indicate that the negatives of the game were the only reasons that he pulled it down.

When asked whether he would bring the game back, he said he is "considering it" but that the game would come with a "warning" to "Please take a break."

The popular game has led many people to create spinoffs of the game, which have also become very popular. The game can also reportedly be obtained via the iOS 7 Jailbreak and users can find a hack that allows them to play the game without any obstacles.

As for people without the jailbreak, the game can only be played if it was downloaded prior to its removal from app stores. Once it was removed, people moved on to play the other similar spinoff games that are still very popular on the app store markets.

What do you think about the Flappy Bird game? What kind of improvements do you think we could see if the Flappy Bird creator decides to bring the game back with a special update? Let us know in the comments section below.
