Fall Out Boy to release their own Flappy Bird game

"Fall Out Bird" will feature the likeness of Pete Wentz and company; coming to iOS and Android this week.

Rock band Fall Out Boy will release their own Flappy Bird game called "Fall Out Bird," the group has announced on its website. The game was created in one day and will be available for iOS and Android this week (just as soon as it's approved).

"Rome wasn't built in a day, but this game was," the band said on its website. "Shoutout to the OG Flappy Bird, RIP."

While the original Flappy Bird had players controlling a nameless bird, Fall Out Bird will allow you to navigate the game using the four members of the band. Presumably, the game will be free and feature the band's music.

Fall Out Bird is not Fall Out Boy's first foray into gaming. The group previously released Fall Out Trail, based on the popular Oregon Trail.

Flappy Bird creator Dong Nguyen removed the game from app stores worldwide over the weekend because it was too addictive. Fall Out Bird is not the first clone to come on the scene, as iTunes alone is stuffed with imitators.

The fallout of Flappy Bird's demise is most peculiar.

Go try Tap To Flap on Android. It's so much better than all these clones.

Hearing Jess say "Dong" was worth the price of admission.

I think Nas the new face of the Xbone will have a version too. I won't make the sterotypical jokes about what the game will involve. I'll leave that to the at home viewers.

I have a strong dislike of Flappy Bird, but I'll admit "Rome wasn't built in a day, but this game was," made me laugh a lot.

Most so called musicians of today are nothing more than merchants looking to cash in on whatever they can get their weasly little hands on.

 They were right. Console and PC gaming is DEAD. Thanks flappy bird for opening the worlds eyes to your intense gameplay, killer graphics, 7.1 surround sound, 60fps, 4k graphics, open world and so many varied levels.

@Lord_Python1049 The, umm, "legacy" of Flappy Bird is more interesting than the game itself.

@chev7781 They were good times. The show fell apart when most of the original crew left.
