According to Nguyen, his intentions were to create a game you play when you’re relaxed, but it turned out to be addictive.

Creator Dong Nguyen officially pulled the app from Apple’s App Store and Android’s Google Play platform, saying he could no longer handle the pressure and stress following its instant success.

“I think it has become a problem. To solve that problem, it\’s best to take down Flappy Bird. It\’s gone forever,” he said.

Initially thought of as a publicity stunt, but it is a fact now that Flappy Bird is deleted forever!

The story of Flappy Bird is an odd one indeed: the game sat in relative obscurity many months after its release, and then, seemingly out of nowhere, it quickly became one of the most popular iOS apps, at one point reportedly earning its creator as much as $50,000 per day. At the pinnacle of the game’s success, Nguyen decided to remove it from the App Store.

Although removing the game from the App Store sounded like a brilliant marketing move, it now seems Nguyen really doesn’t plan to bring the game back. He does plan to continue developing games. “After the success of Flappy Bird, I feel more confident, and I have freedom to do what I want to do,” he said.

On Saturday, Nguyen sent a series of tweets warning that he was going to remove the app in just 22 hours. Fans pleaded with him to keep it available, but by Sunday at 12 p.m. ET, the app was no longer downloadable (flappy bird deleted).
