I don’t think I’ve ever read more potent mainstream coverage of an indie game than what I’ve read from the controversy of Vietnamese developer Dong Nguyen’s iOS game Flappy Bird. After shooting to the top spot in the iOS charts, the game...
How was Flappy Bird creative exactly? There have been games like this for years and years.
I think the writer is referring to game devs in general. If you read the article you will notice that he also mentions the Phil Fish fiasco.
He never said Flappy Birds is creative or original. With that many bubbles, you think you would actually read the article. You're better than this.
It's indicating that he had a 'creative' mind to make Flappy Bird. Talking about 'the fragility of a creative mind'. This was an article about Flappy Bird after all, even if it wasn't exclusively about it.
There's something fishy about the whole Crappy Turd thing. At some point the guy was asked if he had used bots to boost the download count and he refused to comment. Happy enough to comment about everything else though, my heart bleeds for him...really.
