Pocket God at Wondercon...and on iPad!

Dave and I dropped by Wondercon (the San Francisco Comicon) to hang out with David Hedgecock of Ape Entertainment, and he even set up an impromptu signing...and I fully expected that nobody would come up to us. But we ended up having lots of people coming up and saying "you guys did Pocket God?"...although many were aspiring app-developers, there were normal kids and adults too. We signed as many posters as people would take. We even signed the back of a kid's iPod! It was really fun. We even had people who knew the "Summer Squash" keyword and we immediately gave them a Pygmy figure. I also had my spanking new iPad (so cool) and we brought up Pocket God on it and was surprised how cool it looks blown up twice the size! Dave Hedgecock put it up as part of our display and it worked well in getting people's attention.

So we have already planned to attend San Diego Comicon, partly for fun, but also to hang with the Ape guys again and promote the Pocket God comic. By that time, the actual comic should have been produced and possibly new toys.

In the mean time, Dave and I working to finish the next update before he goes on vacation. Back to work!

Free posters! Get your free posters! We mean it! Take 'em!


Dave sidetracked by iPad. Come on, Dave, pay attention.

Sorry I'm not in the pictures. That happens on vacation also, the camera-holder-syndrome. Tons of pictures in an exotic location, and it doesn't even appear I was there.

Oh, and one more thing...regarding the iPad... If you are wondering if Pocket God is fun on it..check this video out!



Someone likes fish-slapping!

P.S. Apple is sitting on our update, we know. It probably has to do with the iPad flurry. Thanks for your patience!

  3. Do you guys realize that you have reached 63,000 five star ratings (And that is just five star ratings). I would like to congratulate you guys on being such successful developers.

  4. Hi, I'd like to complain about the mini update. The speech bubbles appear with "Enter text here" still show up instead of being blank. It's aggravating.

  7. -Imagines Pygmy dog toys-

    Ohhh, that would be awesome. Watching my dog destroy a squeaky pygmy. xD

    On the random side, did you guys know about Wikipedioog? :)

  8. Hey guys! You have no idea how much I love pocket god! I'm always waiting for your updates and I'm always reading your blogs. It's my favorite app and I love anything about it! But anyways, to get to the point, I have a really good idea for an update. It would make my day if you put it in. It's where on the screen where you can see your pygmies names and personalities, you could add the choice to make a Pygmy a girl or a boy. It would be so funny to see how they'd interact with each other, if they'd scream cooties or start kissing. Anyways thanks for making this app and for all the updates you always give us.
    Sincerely, AlexJ64

  10. Best idea: make a separate pocket god for iPad! with like bigger islands and stuff, that would be awesome and a bunch of people would buy it cuz they already know how cool it is on the ipod so imagine the possibilities on iPad....

  11. It is updated come on post that it has already Oh spoiler is next update is called crack is wack

    ReplyDelete
  12. That is sort of a bad idea because it isn't fair for the people with the ipod and just because the ipad is bigger that is just really the only reason people buy it and it has more memory

  14. Hi guys don't concentrate on the ipad & forget the iPod like you did when you updated the software

    ReplyDelete
  15. Im going to laugh if crack is wack (the next updates name) is what i think it is. btw i heard that GodFinger was just released is Canada, and will be released worldwide soon. Maybe you guys should try to team up with them, their app looks really good.

  16. Why did my in-app purchases not transfer to my iPad???

    I have bought ALL of the customization packs, but I was hoping they would go with the app onto my iPad... Please tell me what I did wrong, or make it so you only have to buy them once.

  17. Andre....if you go on the ipad and click "buy" and through the confirmation boxes inside of our app (the windows inside the bamboo frame), then an itunes black popup should say that you've bought it already but would you like to get it again for free. See if this works. You will always get a black box that asks you to confirm before paying anything, so if it does NOT say you can download it for free, cancel out and let me know.
