Slow News Day


Still waiting for Ooga Jump approval. Dave and I gots our picture taken today for the San Francisco Business Times. We're celebrities! I'm working on some new creatures for PG...but not telling what they are yet! Anyway, thought the blog needed a pretty picture so I went to Deviant Art and searched for Pocket God--- Its sort of like googling yourself---and found this cool image by Jitterz. Enjoy!

P.S. And no, that's NOT the creature I'm working on...although I kind of wish I was!

  3. Here Are A Few Ideas for PG Updates

    #1
    Name: Winter Wonderland
    Features: Tap storm cloud with two fingers and watch the snow and an igloo fall from the sky. Pygmies put Eskimo snow suits on. Pygmies build a snowman that, when aggravated, puts on a magic hat and turns into an evil snowman that jumps around and tries to jump on top of the pygmies. Islanders hide in the igloo by outrunning the slow jumping snowman. Snowman melts away with snow and igloo when both open sky (not stormy sky) and sun are up and showing.

    #2
    Name: Pygmy's Best Friend
    Features: Add in cats; dogs; or cats and dogs with the menu bar. They would be small little animals, about the size of the coconuts, which play with the pygmies or each other. When it snows, the pets also wear snow suits. Dogs and cats favor certain people, the ones on the island when they first appear. Pygmies, that the dogs/cats like, feed them bones when they go by. The islanders each get 2 or 3 bones and the dogs/cats attack them when they can’t give them a bone. Try to eat the fish or coconuts before the islanders. They also scare the bat away if they are still awake when the bat comes to bite the islanders.

    #3
    Name: The Other Planet
    Features: An alien comes in a UFO (turn off and on in menu) when an islander is held above the clouds at the top of the screen. UFO sucks islanders up in a green beam that drops them back down as alien pygmies that act just like the normal pygmies while the dogs and cats bark at them suspiciously. There can be variations of types of alien pygmies. If an alien pygmy is dragged to the top of the screen a second time, they will become gigantic alien pygmies and start attacking the normal islanders and hit them off the island. The alien pygmies are killed like the other pygmies, and come back in their normal pygmy form, after pressing the plus button. Giant alien pygmies do not attack other alien pygmies.

    Thanks to Diket for bone idea.
    Like Diket, you can add ideas, that I may add to this later.

  4. Okay, I wrote this in an earlier post but I figured out the post was too old and no one would read it so here is, the "red planet" update.(you can put a different name, im not very good with names).

    First, at night you could touch the red dot many times(like the moon and the bat) and an alien spaceship would appear and suck the pygmies into it. Then they appear in a reddish landscape with no water, no sun or moon, space instead of sky with a mini version of the earth(in the space) and a hole in one side of the landscape were pigmies dont walk. You could pick up pygmies and throw them into the hole, also you could touch the hole many times and a giant alien would come out of it and eat the pygmies one by one(like momma Rex) and the only way to kill it is to throw it back into the hole (yes, you can pick it like a pygmy). When distance flicking pygmies, they appear in the space background floating and exploding for the lack of air pressure.
    Finally, to go back to earth just touch it many times and the spaceship appears and takes them back to Island Oog. Thanks for reading and I hope you take it in count.

    P.S.You dont have to make the update exactly as I say, its just a suggestion and you can modify it in order to make it funner depending on your criteria. After all, you are Pocket God´s Gods.

  5. Ok everyone,
    Back up off of Puppy Lover #1!!! He is just trying to help, and you act like he's being a jerk!! He uses his valuable time to read everyone's update idea, and shares his opinion and if something might not work, he comes up with a kind and reasonable reason why it won't work. He never hurts anyone's feelings, so to you idiots who have a problem with him, you will have to talk to me first!!! And to you who think he is helpful, thank you. :)

  6. You know, I think that this app would benefit with some sort of a suggestion box. Like you could make an email address which we could email and have a list of the ideas you already have so no one duplicates anything. Also, you could make it so one person can only do one submit of an idea a month. That way it won't get overcrowded. Also, if you could have a poll of what we want that would make this great!

  7. I like this picture :) maybe if you put a monster like this in an update, it could be an octopus monster that looks like a real giant version of the statue, which could explain why the statue exsists :)

  8. I just thought of something!!! What if you added a fly trapper? You know, one of those plants??? I think you can swap it with the tiki.

  9. I think my pocket god is malfunctioning. For some reason, it doesn't record any acheivements on feint, even though I have beaten many of them. I think it might be because I had completely beat some of them in previous versions. Help me please!

  10. I sugested that for an update a couple of months ago! Can you make that episode 24? That would sweet!

    Sincerly, Noah K M

  12. Well pocketgodlovr123, he was being a jerk, and nobody cares if he wastes his useless time reading other´s comments. I mean, i do it and it doesnt take me that much, besides, his stupid comments wont help people´s deas bcome an actual update and thats hat everybody wants fter all. So stop commenting on how an update idea could get better; you put an idea with like 500 problems and advertize it in almost every post and no one criticized it.(News for u, your idea will never become an update.)

    R U Happy? I must be like more than a hundred miles away from you so i dont really care of what you say, just stop ruining everyone else´s fun.

  15. i think it would be awesome if you could scroll through the many update pictures and choose which one you want. for example instead of having the bird u could have the shark update picture on the home screen.

  16. I wpuldn't listen to jacob beacause of extreme e-mailing lists that might set you guys back by days.

    Can you maybe spill the beans about the next three titles like 15,16,and 17 that would be awesome.

  17. Stop getting so mad at puppylover! She (you are a she, right?) isn't trying to ruin the fun for anybody. It's just constructive critisim.

  18. Fandres,
    My update idea had no problems, and at least I have the attention span to come up with an idea, because I don't see you coming up with any ideas!! How long it take you to make up that comment, 3 hours???

    ReplyDelete
  19. P.S your ideas stink; one's already been suggested, and the other will never become an update either you freak...

  20. Fandres23, please do not get mad at pocketgodlover123. He is only sticking up for me. He also wasn't ruining anyone's fun if you ask me. I think that it was very kind of him to do what he did without even expecting any kind of reward. Thanks again pocketgodlover123.
    PS: Molebobby14 and everyone else that reads this comment, I am not a girl. It says so on my profile, my birth certificate, my blog, and there are even a few pictures of me from last month or so trapped on an amusement park ride. If you look at any one of those then you will have seen proof that I am a boy.
    PPS: I'm not mad at you for calling me a girl Molebobby14, I get that a lot because of my name and the way I phrase my words when I type. Oh well, it is pretty funny when people think that. Ha ha!!! :)

  21. Ben, I like the idea of the octopus, but didn't someone else think of that before? Oh, well. It is still cool. I also like the way you posted your comment. Short, sweet, and to the point. Nothing like mine. Ha ha!!! :)

  22. Good thinking Ethan. I would like to be able to do that too. I think that I would choose the picture of the latest update anyway though. :)

    ReplyDelete
  23. Okay, everyone, eventhough i really hate you but today the real owner of Fandres23 is coming back and i have to give him back the account. I had to post our stupid idea like 3 times and i did, so my job is done and i say good bye to all.

    P.S.I hate pocketgodlover123 and, molebooby14,puppy...whatever is a he eventhough it sounds like of a girl it is obvious he is a boy because of his writing.

  24. Hey guys! Allan here. I really love all the suggestions and we have some plans that are inspired by the many ideas...but i hope nobody gets bent out of shape about us not being able to react (or respond) to every suggestion. Many people come up with similar ideas...and some come up with things that are way out there which is cool too. We are always absorbing the ideas that people have but obviously there are so many and we have only so much time and some technical limitations. We run through the many suggestions whenever we decide on the next update, and there's always a series of reasons we go the way we go. My big worry is that nobody gets upset...its supposed to be a fun ongoing dialogue and not a negative thing. So everyone be nice :)

  25. hey I have an update suggestion
    so what if you guys put in a giant turtle that the islanders could ride between island to island, and if you repeatedly poke the turtle it would become agitated and dive into the water and leave the islanders floating until they reached the island they were trying to get to, oh and while they are floating the sharks could circle around them andtake them one at a time

    I have noticed some flaws in this suggestion like it would interfere with the islanders not being able to swim, I am still trying to find a way to work around it

    oh and I also noticed a slight contradiction in this app, the islanders drown when they are knocked into the water but they can swim when the are taken into the underwaterby the tidal wave, so I kinda figured maybe this contradiction could be a way around the flaw in my update

  26. I'm glad that we can all be friends again. :)

  27. Hey Bolt can you please respond and post this comment because i wrote it last time and it was not posted. Here is an idea for an alien update for the red star thing. The episode should be called "One small step for Oogs, and One giant leap for pygmies" First you press on Mars 3 times and then a saucer comes from mars and either aliens come out and fight the pygmies or they abduct the pygmies and either the new place is the space ship or mars. If it is mars then the aliens can get off with the pygmies and still fight them or it could be like the underwater area. The pygmies can float in air (gravity) and there could be a couple of dangers like an alien monster and a black whole where the pygmies get sucked in. I think this would be an awesome update

  28. hi bolt i was wondering. you know how pygmies are above the water and there is a shark that you can drop on them well when you go underwater its not there??? that should be a mini-update. and if the new creature is like that octapus statue make it THAT you can see it underwater. also make it like the t-rex were you can fight it that would be sooooo cool. for a hint for a weapon underwater make some sort of a scewer like the one that statue shoots out make it one they can hold or you can just kill the beast with the normal skewer that the statue shoots
    *great job with the updates, keep them coming!* (i love that picture that someone drew) of the monster.

  29. hi bolt i thought of some ideas of upcoming updates so here they are

    Shelter???
    A really big island with a cave. as well as a crab at the bottom that pinches the pygmies.Also a tree that grows fruit.

    Thats An Unfriendly Welcome!
    A grizzly bear that you could turn on and off lives in the cave witch the pygmies thought was safe. When you lift a pygmie and drop him infront of the cave the bear comes out angered and you fight it with a spear as you would with a trex. Once dead you can cook the meat,and Its re-fightable like the T-rex.
