Flappy Bird game addicts' hearts are breaking everywhere after its creator unexpectedly said he is shutting down the game.

Dong Nguyen creator of the popular Apple and Android game announced on Twitter that he will "take 'Flappy Bird' down" within 22 hours, and he "cannot take this anymore."

He went on to tweet that the move is not related to legal issues, a purchase of the game, or quitting the business. He alluded in an earlier tweet that the game's success is throwing a wrench in his "simple life."

The game has enjoyed wide popularity as of late, topping the charts of the Apple App Store and Google Play. It features a small bird trying to maneuver its way around a series of pipes, and generates ad revenue of about $50,000 a day, according to The Verge.

UPDATE: Flappy Bird is indeed no longer available on the Apple App Store or Google Play store.
