With the new macOS, Big Sur, it came with a new UserNotificationsUI framework, which I absolutely have no idea what it does. But now I think I do. One of the things it can do is, having an entire game on the push notification. Apparently, its doable.

Flappy Bird Game inside Big Sur Notification

Designer and developer Neil Sardesai has done just that. He had put a clone of the once world famous mobile game, Flappy Bird, created by PlayCanvas creator Will Eastcott, into a notification panel.

Thanks to the interactive elements of the new notification framework found on Big Sur, Sardesai is able to play the game with just mouse clicks in place of touchscreen taps.

But why would anyone do that? Well, because, he can.

On a side note. In case anyone is looking for a simple game to kill time during an Internet outage… the good news is, you don’t need to go through the hassle to put a game in macOS notification panel because, the browser you are using probably has a hidden game built in.

Here’s the video of clone Flappy Bird in Big Sur’s notification in action.

For those who don’t know, Flappy Bird was the most popular game in 2014, which at its peak, generated five figures income from in-app apps for its Vietnamese developer, Dong Nguyen.

Long story short, the developer pulled the app from the Google Play Store and App Store because, of a variety of reasons, including anxiety that came with the sudden fame and fortune.
