Ok so I don't get it. Flappy Bird developer Dong Nguyen makes an extremely popular app, makes (apparently) $50k a day from it, and now he is taking Flappy Bird down?

Nguyen was quoted as saying that he “cannot take it anymore.” He doesn't want to sell the app either... I dunno but something sounds very weird here.

What do you guys think about all this? Do you think it is some kind of PR stunt?
Also I am wondering ... with soo many clones of this game (not sure which came out first), why was this the only version of the app that BLEW UP?!


So word on the street is Flappy Bird ripped off a game (from 2011) called 'Piou Piou'

My guess would be he got a letter from Nintendo about the graphics he was using in the game.
