What do you think about the guy taking this down when he was making 50,000 per day? I don’t think I’d like to be a well known developer or anything, luckily, no worries in that area so far, but I think I’d keep it up for a while if I was making that much. Probably should use a company name or something.

I’m sure he has his reasons, but it’s a rarity to see someone do that. It’s one thing to say you don’t want to work on a project anymore, it’s another to put effort into removing it from existence. Still, it’s not a complicated game. It would only take someone a couple hours to remake. If it achieves that level of fandom, and I’m sure it will, you can expect to see a lot of such remakes appear soon.
Yeah, it’s just a short craze I’m sure. If he would have waited a couple months, it would have been over anyway. There will be plenty copies go around until the fad dies away It’s not really unique in anyway. There isn’t enough depth in it.
50,000 whats? pats on the bum? how could he make money out of that cheesy thing (i admit i liked it tho)
50,000 dollars in ad revenue ;)
He is still making money out of people who have it installed though, since it’s ad revenue.
I can imagine that Nintendo chased the developer a bit for the pipes and the flying fish.
