Mobile game addicts better get ready to flex those index fingers and play the crap out of Flappy Bird, because the creator of the massively popular game says he’s “sorry,” but he’s taking it off the app store in 22 hours.
And that was at 11 a.m., so you have until tomorrow night (approximately 8:02 p.m.) to not leave the floor, bed, couch or chair you normally relax in with Meyer lemon curd remnants all over your slob face.
One Kotaku commenter wrote, “I read this as, “Oh shit, I’m REALLY getting attention for stealing artwork and I know how Nintendo is about their IP. I’m hopefully going to cash out before they come after me,” and I’m pretty sure he hit the nail on the head. While the creator said he wasn’t removing it for legal reasons, it probably was a preemptive strike.
