'Flappy Bird' creator teases new game on Twitter

New, 57 comments

Flappy Bird creator Dong Nguyen is moving beyond the feathered friend that brought him massive recognition — he just announced on Twitter that he's building a new game and attached a screenshot to go along with it. There's no other detail on the game yet aside from a small helmeted human being jumping through a small opening into what appears to be a building — it's not all that dissimilar to what you need to do in Flappy Bird, in fact. Polygon notes that Nguyen described the game as "some guy jumping from building to building" in an interview on CNBC.

The timing of this reveal is rather surprising — just yesterday, Nguyen said that Flappy Bird would be back in August, but in today's tweet, he said that he wanted people to "forget about Flappy Bird for a while." When we'll see this new project remains to be seen, but we're guessing from Nguyen's tweet that it'll be ready to go before Flappy Bird returns.
