Flappy Bird comes back (might contain traces of opinion)




Disclaimer: Anyone who does not get along with opinion, please stop reading from here on.

Now it’s out, then, Dong Nguyen, his character developer of Flappy Bird, was announced on Twitter that the little bird will come back. This he indicated the other day in an article in Rolling Stone magazine . Your you might remember the story of the tragic developer who no longer knew of sheer success, where to put it? The consequence was that the game from the app store disappeared, so that Mr Nguyen is no longer so burdened. I liked Flappy Bird even then not, I doubted Nguyen’s statements both receipts as well as his stress level, and I do so even today.


My aversion to Flappy Bird went so far that I was facing Caschy refused to write about it here. Once or twice I had yet to bite the bullet. I was made to feel uncomfortable. Give a developer attention, a primitive game Klöppelt by a few hours coding and rightly so really makes ash. Since there is no envy in the game, I do not begrudge anyone who with his own idea succeeds. In Flappy Bird but nothing was new, neither the idea nor the graphics.

Now to the game, still contaminate the clones the download charts in the stores, so return. And there will be another hype around the game when it’s ready. An unjustified hype. Out there, there are hundreds of developers who make really cool stuff for smart phones that are not viewed with the ass, but a bird that must be maneuvered through gaps on the people depart. Take so much from it that I again have to write about this game today. A scandal.

And once again I wonder what actually generally wrong with the man. Why they are so prone to hype, why they only move with the crowd, even if it is just a ballpark smartphone game. And I wonder why people do not notice when they get ripped off. Something else has not done Nguyen. He has taken advantage of the hype perfectly, has generated by the announcement of offline business of the game once again millions of downloads. The game has since been through various ways yet available, at least for Android, it’s probably still generates more revenue than some “real” app.

I do not want Flappy Bird longer see either in the app stores, even on tech blogs. This desire is not met me, probably not even think on this blog, but if you even think about it. Whether you need to find any crap cool, just because it is precisely in. Whether one supports such developer in which to load their games. I put here so often the title before, the Away from the mainstream are, but they are usually also well made (often this is of course a matter of taste). And I see clearly how little the interested reader. But at Flappy Bird as they come running. I do not understand.
