Flappy Bird is an albatross. Game developer Dong Nguyen tweeted on Saturday that he “cannot take this anymore. This being the massively overhyped phenomenon that is his mobile timewaster. While Nguyen considers Flappy Bird a success (and who wouldn’t at $50,000 in ad revenue a day), he just flat out hates it now for ruining his “simple life. The game that doesn’t love you back has been pulled from the Apple and Android app stores, meaning no new customers can download it. The good news for Flappy Addicts is that if you already installed it, the game could theoretically live on your phone ever. Nguyen gave a 22-hour warning before officially pulling the game on Sunday at 12:00 p.m. Since then, eBay has exploded with offers to sell Flappy Bird-installed devices.
