Happy Labor Day!


We really took labor day weekend literally and worked ALL weekend. I thought we might finish before the weekend but I was wrong wrong wrong. This is one of those updates that seemed to be a bottomless pit (update idea!) of details. Everyone probably is already aware, we're adding a new area. And like the underwater area has its theme of marine dangers, this will have its own theme as well? What theme is it? I will let Dave reveal all in his "state of the island" touch arcade post, but I'll give you a hint..or three. Its a subject that is very popular with games on the app store, we've received many requests for this, and think about what season we are heading into! Care to guess in the comments?

And for many of you, its BACK TO SCHOOL TOMORROW! Remember to rename your pygmies your new teacher's names. :)

The awesome drawing above was an Idle submitted by Terra Murphy.

  1. I cheated :P But if you check the Feint leaderboards, it probably has to do with Zombies. Also, I read the bottom, and the zombies are probably going to have their own dance ;) At TouchArcade, we are all thinking "Thriller" I have the perfect comic for you guys if this approval drags out. Keep up the good work guys. Make this update amazing!

  3. I already know that it's about zombies. I saw it in Dave's Twitter page. Great idea, though! I can't wait to see how it turns out! And I love the laser beam icon, by the way.

  6. Hey, I didn't know where to post this, but I thought of a small (I think) addition: I noticed that it's possible to create a whirlpool in the underwater area and skewer pygmies while keeping the whirlpool going. But it doesn't seem to have any type of achievement linked to it. I'd love it if you could add that in a future update. Y'all do great work and Pocket God has become my favorite game on the iPod.

  7. Oh ge'ez! Is it gonna be like a graveyard area?? XP

  8. Their should be an area based on math. Calc II could kill the pygmies just like it will to me. Or AP Physics could kill them too.

  10. ZOMBIES!! If you go to the leader boards in feint and scroll all the way down, you can see the sacrafises for the next update. Will the zombie dance be thriller? Lol!

  11. The name is "Dead Pygmy Walking"
    so I'm going to guess Halloween, and (hopefully) zombies.

  12. Episode 26: Dead Pygmy Walking
    The title suggests that the pygmies will be able to turn into Zombies. There are 3 new achievements added to fient: Brains Eaten, Buried alive, and Gift of Zombie dance. The new achievements confirm that there will be zombies.

    Did I guess corectly?

  14. lol....i didn't realize Dave had announced the title on his Twitter. DUH. Yes, pygmy zombies are coming to PG. And Its appropriate since by the time its released we'll be heading into halloween. We can use the new area to introduce other spooky stuff.

  15. I agree with Skipper587. Zombie dance should be "Thriller".

  18. If you make zombies, I'd LOVE to see kind of a "Thriller" choregraphy for dancing, enven though I'm not a big fan of MJ.

  19. Hi bolt creative. guess you still didn't get my e-mail. Anyway, a graveyard would be awesome because if you check your e-mail for Hinhanghoing, I have a pretty cool suggesten. (please I have been waiting so long to tell you!)

  20. We need ponies in PG. evil pink bloodthirsty pretty ponies.

  21. Dead Pygmy Walking... my guess is a mini-Creeps Tower Defense game.

  22. Does the new island have water in the background? :\ I would much prefer it if there was something different, like trees etc.

    ReplyDelete
  23. Wooo Halloween! My favorite time of year; mostly because it's right after my birthday. Birthday candy then Halloween candy. The graveyard thing is gonna be pretty cool though.

    ReplyDelete
  24. Will there be a zombie vampire? And if you gana expand on the whirlpool, make and an achivement like hurrican zap for the whirlpool and skewer thing. The reason I thought of thriller is because there making us learn how to dance to it in my schools gym class. Close to Christmas you should add a snow place.
    PS: that's a really good idle idea

  25. Dead Pygmy Walking: I am guessing that the new location is like a graveyard. If you fall into a gravehole, the pygmys come back as zombies. And i am guessing the dance is thriller, the brains eaten is when you eat the pygmies, and you get buried alive. So this should be fun, i wonder what the icon will look like. Oh maybe you can have halloween themed updates for all of october. That would be pretty cool. Like after this, there would be werewolves and then frankenstein, and gremlin pygmys!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! It could be called Gremlins 3: The Pygmy Gremlin

  28. Are you guys talking about A prison Island like Alcatraz! Because that would make more sense since the term "Dead Man Walking".
    But seriously, Zombie pygmies is a great idea and it will also have my little sister SPOOKED!

  30. this may not be related to PG so much, but i read the TA state of the island. And i feel bad! due to the fault of idol hands, PG hasnt recooperated fully. so, sharks with lasers didnt really make the app go up in the charts. So, now bolt are looking at their options, and making them happen. But, its bolt! we love you guys and you work will be better then the work before it!
