Flappy bird can make it possible for him to fund his next adventure (or next 10), whatever he chooses that to be. He should think forward a bit more. It's extraordinarily rare to be in the position to take advantage of opportunities like that. What he'd be effectively doing is just handing the money off to Clumsy Bird instead. If he has any dreams for the future, he should view it as funding those dreams; which could be anything from a future game, to charity. Just my opinion obviously.



The disappointing part is that he apparently has such poor self-esteem, he thinks that he will not be able to create anything more popular than this game, even with all the money he's generating.

Regardless of what he builds, what industry he is in, there will always be people there to criticize. Why throw away opportunity that most people wish they had due to something that will occur regardless of the revenue?

Being a martyr only works in certain circumstances. This is not one of them.

If you look at mobile game development, it's not a bad bet to guess that he won't. It's a big ol' dart board.


I agree. There's a subtle difference between being sincere and being intelligent.

If he lives in Vietnam, one day would set him up for the rest of his life.
