The creator of mobile gaming phenomenon Flappy Bird has revealed that the game will be making a return, potentially this August, in an updated version in which players will be able to compete with others in real time.


The game, which was gone from mobile app stores since February 9, had topped both platforms' free charts and was overwhelming players and mainstream media outlets alike by early February.

According to CNET, creator Dong Nguyen, the one-man team behind Vietnamese game developer DotGears Studios, said that that the new version of Flappy Bird will be less addictive this time around to avoid the pitfalls he felt its original incarnation presented players who entered too deep into the mindless tapping title.

Nguyen, who became an overnight celebrity as game caught on, was endlessly hounded by players who felt he was not grateful for his newfound wealth and had built success off stealing from Nintendo, and removed the title from the iOS App Store and Google Play store with a day's notice, saying it had ruined the serenity of his simple life.
