If this didn't all seem intentional in the first place? People are blind....
You know, I can respect that he doesn't want people to get addicted to it. I think I would have trouble walking around, watching people play Flappy Birds everywhere I go for hours on end just trying to beat their last high score. It would give me a sense of responsibility to end it as well.
This is one of the oddest developers I've ever seen. He seems so bi-polar.
This has to be the most vacuous topics I've seen on news sites lately. Why is it so necessary to speculate on this topic?
I fail to see how it is even remotely relevant why the developer cancelled the game. He clearly doesn't want to talk about it and the press attention seems to be negatively affecting him. Not all people want money or success and it is only suggestive to speculate that there are hidden motives here.
The game's gone; it doesn't matter why.
I agree with all of Jvan's comments.
The thing I find funny about the whole situation is all the disbelief, it's hilarious.
* The money? Must be legal action? Maybe he's crazy.
* It's an intentional move? Lol. Create a game, hope for the best, wait for it to get popular and then pull it. I don't know how popular this development model will be.
* He cares about how people are using his creation? Nah, who does that these days?
Personally, if I created something that caused people to post video of them smashing up perfectly good electronic devices and the product was raking in $50k / day then I'd just ignore the video's, feel a little guilty that I was probably responsible for some form of environmental damage and exacerbating some individuals mental illness. Then I would just wait for it all to die down of it's own accord.
