Meffies, Moonclog and a Million Downloads


I am the KING of alliteration! So, two things are happening. Pocket God has been downloaded over 1 MILLION times!

Inconceivable! <--in the voice of Wallace Shawn

We are really thankful for everyone's support in getting the word out! Also, we've been nominated for a Meffy...mobile entertainment award for game excellence. MEF is an organization based in England. You can check out their blog HERE.

When they let us know we were nominated, MEF asked us for a 2 minute video about Pocket God. We got this crazy idea for the video. Instead of sending them a normal marketing video, we asked the infamous Moonclog13 (Helium-kid and pocket god theme-song writer, Daniel) to record a video where he plays our overlord demanding we use our time to make more updates rather than go to a dumb-ol' awards ceremony. This accomplished two things in our mind: we'd create an impression by submitting a totally unexpected, if slightly weird, video AND we'd get out of doing any work.

Well, then we received an email a bit later saying that they were only going to cut in 10 seconds of whatever video we sent (so why ask us for a 2 minute video?) so we had to ditch the idea. But here's the video Dan made. Thanks anyway, Dan!


P.S. We don't know when it will be approved but Surf's Up is in the Apple Approval system!

  9. sooooo.... 1000000 downloads equals $1,000,000-30%(for apple) equals $700,000 minus $100,000 (I guess making the app? is that even close?) is $600,000/2 equals $300,000 each in 5 months...... wow...........

  10. I love Pocket God but I don't like the "You know you like Pocket God" Slogan, it just seems like you guys could do better, like... Now your the god, or something.
