Kitty Jetpack: Dong Nguyen, Creator of Flappy Bird, Making New Vertical Flying Game

March 12, 2014 Updated: July 18, 2015

Dong Nguyen, the creator of the ultra popular Flappy Bird game, is making several new games.

Among them is Kitty Jetpack, a vertical flying game.

Another is Checkonaut, an “action chess game” that he’ll be releasing this month.

The third is an untitled cowboy-themed shooter. 

Kitty Jetpack and the untitled game don’t have planned release dates. Kitty Jetpack shouldn’t be confused with Jetpack Kitty, which is a game that was released in 2012.

Nguyen famously (or infamously) took down Flappy Bird from app stores after he said it was causing him immense stress. However, the millions of people who have downloaded the game are still generating tens of thousands of dollars for him, reported Rolling Stone.

Nguyen, who lives in Vietnam, quit his job and is thinking about buying a Mini Cooper and an apartment, and got his first passport.

He says that he’s felt “relief” since taking down Flappy Bird.

“I can’t go back to my life before, but I’m good now,” he said.

He added that he’s considering putting Flappy Bird back up at some point.

If so, he will add a warning that addresses one of his concerns, that people spend too long playing the game: “Please take a break.”
