"Flappy Bird" making a comeback?

Updated:

Flappy Bird creator Dong Nguyen has said he is considering bringing Flappy Bird back to mobile platforms.

Nguyen said in an interview with Rolling Stone that he's not currently working on a new version of Flappy Bird, but said that if it ever happened he'd make sure the game featured a "warning" to encourage regular breaks.

Flappy Bird was removed from the Google Play store and Apple App Store at the start of February, with the title at the peak of its popularity. Nguyen said at the time that Flappy Bird "happened to become an addictive product. I think it has become a problem....To solve that problem, it's best to take down Flappy Bird. It's gone forever."

Earlier this month, one report said a new Flappy Bird clone was being released every 24 minutes.

Elsewhere in the interview, Nguyen showed three of the new games he's working on: a cowboy shooter, a flying game called Kitty Jetpack, and "action chess game" Checkonaut. He plans to release one of these games this month.
