Flappy Bird game developer says a new version is coming

Flappy Bird game developer, Dong Nguyen, recently agreed to an interview with Rolling Stone in Hanoi, Vietnam. The interview, which has been published today, reveals interesting details about the life of the talented 28-year old developer.

Award-winning journalist David Kushner asked Nguyen if he is planning to bring back the sleeper hit game. The solitary geek responded positively, saying that he is considering it.

When the game hit number one in the App Store and Google Play, Nguyen said that he was shocked. "Seeing the game on top, I felt amazing," he told Kushner.

He also confirmed that he was earning $50,000 a day before removing it in February. He still earns thousands of dollars, thanks to the millions of people who already downloaded the game.

Nguyen also hinted that he is working on a new version of Flappy Bird, but he jokingly added that it will come with a warning.

The success of Flappy Bird proved to be too much for the chain-smoking Vietnamese. After receiving countless emails and text messages of complaints from people who claim to be addicted to the game, Nguyen felt disturbed. "I couldn't be too happy. I don't know why," he murmured.

For now, the Flappy Bird creator is enjoying life outside the spotlight. With tons of money in his bank account, he's looking forward to buying two things: a Mini Cooper and an apartment.

About the Geek Mind

The “geek mind” is concerned with more than just the latest iPhone rumors, or which company will win the gaming console wars. I4U is concerned with more than just the latest photo shoot or other celebrity gossip.

The “geek mind” is concerned with life, in all its different forms and facets. The geek mind wants to know about societal and financial issues, both abroad and at home. If a Fortune 500 decides to raise their minimum wage, or any high priority news, the geek mind wants to know. The geek mind wants to know the top teams in the National Football League, or who’s likely to win the NBA Finals this coming year. The geek mind wants to know who the hottest new models are, or whether the newest blockbuster movie is worth seeing. The geek mind wants to know. The geek mind wants—needs—knowledge.
