Back in February a game took the AppStore by storm, causing mountains of controversy at the same time… That game was the brain child of Dong Nguyen, and was of course called Flappy Bird. The crazily addictive game split people into two groups, those who played and loved it and those who didn’t play and hated everything about it.
Although the game was only available on the AppStore for 26 days, it caused a phenomenon never seen before from one small app. People where actually buying and selling devices simply because they had the game installed! Totally insane..
Dong has since ‘leaked’ to the press that a new Flappy Bird variant is on it’s way.. He expects to have it published to the AppStore by the end of August. It it’s predecessors success is anything to go by it’s going to be a huge hit!
It’s also reported to be a multiplayer variant of the game, meaning you can pit your bird flapping skills against your friends and family. At this stage it’s not known if it will be a local network multiplayer game or if it will be hooked up to Apple’s Game Centre.
Maybe – just maybe, this time it will manage to survive more then a calendar month in the store.. One things for sure, it’s going to make Dong a very rich man..
