People are selling their phones with Flappy Bird pre-installed for insane prices online, while creator Dong Nguyen gets bombarded with death threats online.
Everything about this game and the person who made it is both hilarious and pathetic.
I was thinking about it and it is probably a publicity stunt because it makes the people who haven't downloaded it rush to get it which generates even more revenue. It's a smart move but a foolish move.
I think the reaction of the general public has been more pathetic than anything. It's very revealing of how ridiuclous the mobile gaming market is.
The market, or just people in general?
Some people don't care about quality
Getting "death threats" because he took his creation offline is very sad. But I don't get why this game is getting so much attention, it isn't all that good.
the people writing these death threats for this game must have an iq below 1, i mean if these are the types of games they play, then i fear for the games industry and the developers who are forced to make these types of games for these goons...
I am selling my ipad right now, or better ill buy ipad, download the game (jealbreaking -> Torrent) then sell it 3x the orginal price, no seriously theres alot of dumb people.
Death threats? What is wrong with people?
Some people can't see the difference between reality and flappy bird...
Uugh! A mediocre Iphone/Andriod game... Death threats seriously? Bl**dy casuals ... Was this close throwing someone's phone out of the train because i heard that sound over and over again. Luckily i give the guy a push and his streak was over :D
A few days ago I knew nothing of this "game". Now it's all over internet... And the worst thing about it is that the "game" is awful as hell.
yeah, to me this looks like a publicity stunt. Death threats probably published by himself or friends. Faked reviews in the beginning started it, the fact that he said he was making 50k a day in google ads revenue aroused some interest, the copy design (the game is basically a piou piou ripoff with mario pipes), now the pulling off of the game from the ios/android store... This guy marketed that corrupted game well and got rich by doing so. I totally have no respect for that guy at all.
This is offically out of control
Those are just troll bids. There are plenty of knock off in the app store. They have one called birdy flap.
Death threats and suicide threats over a game??? I don't even.......
A crappy mobile game.
"Selling". Anyone can fake bid.
can someone explain me wtf is going on? is there some kind of virus in the air that turns people into retards?
It's called the Internet. Manage your exposure wisely.
I wonder what would happen to Sucker Punch if they cancelled their upcoming game Infamous Second Son? Getting death threats for a patch(Infinity ward) or not supporting dedicated servers and for pulling games...well basically, the net needs nuking! Goddamn keyboard warriors at their worst.
Nuked from orbit. It's the only way to be sure.
PURCHASE NOW ! flappy bird 2 special depression edition comes with 2 cyanide pills for you and your loved one and limited golden dull razer blade for those hardcore players that want to go with a bang of not completing first flappy bird level
Things like this make me think Humanity is doomed.
Did anyone else first read the title as 'Flappy Bin-Laden devices'?
Sometimes casuals are just unbelievable.
this who made death threats or even threat about committing suicide over the game being pulled are just pathetic losers. it is only a game. seriously have a life. best of all over a damn mobile game. that is just plain dumb and stupid.
OMG it is a [email protected] cräp game, what the F is this hype?????????? There are way better games with the same concept like Jetpack Joyride.
