Were you (un)lucky enough to download Flappy Bird? Well, if you check now, it’s gone without a trace, that’s due to its indie developer, Nguyen Ha Dong, pulling it off both the Google and Apple app stores.
That’s right, Nguyen pulled his estimated $50,000 a day game. The reason? Apparently he can’t take the attention and pressure, that and we imagine a lot of the people playing his game have been sending him hate messages for his painfully addictive micro-game.
Flappy Bird had been downloaded more than 50 million times, making it 2014’s most popular game by far.
