Dong Nguyen from Vietnam has taken to Twitter to deny any requests from press for interviews - and to deny lucrative marketing deals with US retailers.
Here are some of the things he's said so far:
1: His success is "overrated" and he didn't want it to happen:
@joekloc Hi Joe, I think press should give my game some peace. Its success is really overrate! I'm sorry, I refuse to answer questions.— Dong Nguyen (@dongatory) February 4, 2014
2: Journalists are hounding him in his own country:
@sherpa I'm trying hard to do but things are out of my control. Press people are looking for me right here in my country too!— Dong Nguyen (@dongatory) February 4, 2014
3. He's turned down offers of 'Flappy Bird' merchandise:
@kreckinfl Well, I think Flappy Bird should stay only in mobile games world.— Dong Nguyen (@dongatory) February 4, 2014
4. He's not bringing the game to consoles:
5: His success is "out of control".
6. His high score on Flappy Bird is 150.
@kunpaaki Over 150 :-)— Dong Nguyen (@dongatory) February 4, 2014
7. He's a philosopher:
@craigjbarber The tip is no tip. There is no book, do what you think it right.— Dong Nguyen (@dongatory) February 3, 2014
