Taking to his first interview since the game was taken down from the Apple and Android stores, game creator Ha Dong told Rolling Stone that he now feels much more relieved after taking down Flappy Bird. Moreover, asked if the game will ever come back, the creator responded: "I'm considering it."

Developer Ha Dong removed the game last month, after he was overwhelmed by the kind of media attention the game started receiving. Apart from that, accusations of ripping off Mario to build the game and even guilt over how much time users were spending on the game playing it also became other reasons why the game was abruptly taken down.

"I am sorry 'Flappy Bird' users, 22 hours from now, I will take 'Flappy Bird' down. I cannot take this anymore," Dong previously wrote on his official Twitter page. He later backed his earlier tweet by stating: "It is not anything related to legal issues. I just cannot keep it anymore."

Since taking down the game, the developer has faced a number of protests from hardcore fans , with some of them even issuing death threats.
