Nguyen explained during one of his interviews that he designed the game to relax gamers and he did not expect how things turned out. It was meant to entertain and not to distract people from being productive.

He said he had lost interest in sharing the game not only because he could not handle the fame but also because he is concerned about the several users who became so addicted to it. For a simple guy with simple needs, Nguyen’s course of action was to take the game down forever.
