Dong Nguyen, creator of Flappy Bird, has tweeted plans to "take Flappy Bird down" 22 hours from the tweet's publishing date, which was 2:02 p.m. EST.

"It's not anything related to legal issues," Nguyen clarified. "I just cannot keep it anymore."

Nguyen did not offer an exact reason for his plans to pull Flappy Bird. Nguyen also dismissed the idea of selling Flappy Bird and asked that such questions not be sent to him. [Image: GEARS Studios]

I feel for the guy. The game is well made, and not quite the rip-off everyone says it is. People seem to hate him for it and it appears he's very sensitive to it.

The fact that it isn't ridiculously monetised gets it a number of points from me. I can live with a single advert that is hidden during gameplay. I assume users who've already downloaded it don't lose it when it gets removed?
