The Flappy Bird saga continues. Last week, it was revealed that the unassuming little casual game was raking in more than a million dollars per month in advertisement revenue for creator Dong Nguyen and his game company dotGears. Within days of that announcement, Nguyen tweeted that he couldn’t “take it anymore” and pulled the game from the App Store. Nguyen may not have been making money off of the game anymore, but a lot of other people were.
Business Insider weeded through more than 1,000 tweets from Nguyen to try to figure out why the indie game developer would pull a game that was so profitable. Today, Forbes published an exclusive interview with the quiet, yet emotional programmer that revealed a bit about his current state of mind and his true feelings about Flappy Bird.
