Flappy Bird will be back, and it's bringing some friends

Flappy Bird is back, and better than ever. The frustratingly difficult side-scroller is expected to re-launch in a few months with all new features including multiplayer. Somehow.


Flappy Bird creator Dong Nguyen took the phenomenally popular game down in February because it was too addictive, but later said he was considering relaunching it.

According to TechCrunch, the relaunch is scheduled for August, but we haven't been able to find a source for this date.
