Flappy Bird creator returns with new game

The studio behind one of mobile's biggest viral hits has teased its next release.

DotGears released Flappy Bird in 2013, with the simple ‘touch to fly' title rocketing to mainstream success in 2014. Creator Dong Nguyen at one stage claimed that more than $50k was being generated in daily advertising revenue. In February 2014, Nguyen pulled the game from sale on Android and iOS, citing its overly-addictive nature.

Now, DotGears has announced its collaboration with Japanese developer Obokaidem, best known for the mobile arcade title Pick-Xell, for a new game codenamed ‘N Project', with a worldwide iOS release planned for later in 2016.

Develop has more details.
