Flappy Bird could be coming back to ruin your life again!

Its creator says the Bird could fly once more.

FLAPPY BIRD MAY be coming back.

The rage-inducing phenomenon’s Vietnamese creator says he is considering resurrecting the game he abruptly took offline a month ago – albeit with a warning about its addictive qualities.

In his first interview since he pulled the app from the Apple and Android app stores, citing the pressure its success put on his “simple life,” Nguyen Ha Dong told Rolling Stone magazine he no3w feels a sense of “relief.”

But asked if Flappy Bird will ever fly again on mobile devices, Nguyen responded: “I’m considering it.”

While he is not working on a new version, he said any sequel would come with a warning to users to “please take a break.”

When Nguyen, 28, announced on Twitter that he was about to take it down, 10 million people downloaded it in just 22 hours – and one month on, clone versions still pop up.

Nguyen told Rolling Stone he was upset not only by the fame that surrounded his Flappy Bird success, but also by messages from people telling him how the game caused them to flunk exams and lose jobs.

Now enjoying a quieter life, he told Rolling Stone he is busy creating other games, including a cowboy-themed shooter, a vertical flying game and an “action chess game” — one of which he will release this month.

In the meantime, if you’re suffering from Flappy Bird withdrawal you can play it here. Be warned.
