In 2017, the subreddit /flag/ on /int/ became the center of attention for a group of devoted internet users attracted by the same gif. In this mesmerizing short, a Canadian maple leaf magically transforms into the flag of Norfolk Island. Their amazing adventure to make a game that would become a phenomenon began after this humorous encounter.
THE GROWTH OF A VISIONARY PLAN
It wasn’t an overnight decision, but after a few months of thinking and planning, the idea for “Countryball” was formed. The /flag/ community, impressed by the success of the “Pokémon Clover” hack developed by the /vp/ subreddit, set out to construct their own Pokémon hack based on flag-related jokes. They couldn’t have known that this unassuming start would lead to something so magnificent.
The enormous collaborative effort that went into making Countryball: Catch ’em All! sets it apart from other games. Countless online groups came together to pool their resources and expertise for this massive undertaking.
