Fans of “Flappy Bird” were disappointed when creator of the game, Vietnamese game developer Dong Nguyen, pulled the highly addictive game in February. But according to a recent interview with Nguyen, he’s working on a comeback of “Flappy Bird” to come out in August. 

Although disappointed that people were addicted to the game, and saying that he wished people were spending time more productively, Nguyen doesn’t regret making “Flappy Bird.” The premise of the mobile game requires the player to control a bird to fly between rows of green pipes without coming into contact with them. 

The new version of “Flappy Bird” will have a multi-player option and be “less addictive,” Nguyen said according to CNBC

On May 15, 2014, Nguyen tweeted about his work on a new project with a screenshot of the game showing a small man figure jumping from building to building. 

“I am making a new game. So people can forget about Flappy Bird for a while,” Nguyen wrote. 

According to CNBC, the screenshot of a video character is a separate app that Nguyen is working on in parallel to the Flappy Bird comeback.
