Today is your last chance to download ‘Flappy Bird’

Some people just aren’t equipped to handle the spotlight, and it looks like that’s the case for “Flappy Bird” creator Dong Nguyen. According to a Twitter conversation he had with earlier today with Luke Ryan Herbert, Nguyen said he “can’t take it anymore” and intends to take the game down from both Android and iOS marketplaces tomorrow, February 8.

Nguyen insisted “It’s not anything related to legal issues. I just cannot keep it anymore.” When asked if his decision to pull the game had anything to do with the constant scrutinization of his artwork choices, Nguyen responded with “I didn’t directly stole something. It is quite an art thing to do that :-)

As of right now, Nguyen is adamant that the reason he’s going to remove the game from the market is not because of the success but in spite of it. He’s concerned about the addictiveness and touts that people are “overusing it”. Because of the intoxicating gameplay, “Flappy Bird” will be forever gone tomorrow, so today is your last chance to grab it. Once you download it, it’s yours to keep, but don’t expect any updates or bug fixes. To grab your piece of dissolving gaming history, check out the links below.
