Dave's State of the Island


Dave discusses the latest update, talks about sources of inspiration, and all the goings on that is currently complicating our lives!

"So, I guess I ran out of excuses, another update that took a long time. The only thing I can say is that we are super busy. It's pretty exciting but also pretty stressful because there are so many things happening at the same time. The Comic Book is coming along really well and should be in iVerse’s hands next week, not sure how long it will take them to make it available but it should be available by the end of this month or early June by the latest."

You can see yet another comic page form the Pocket God comic along with our latest icon!

  2. Hey haha I haven't given you guys an idea in a while, but may I suggest making cobwebs to parody the breaking glass windows in Canabalt? To be added in the next update of course :)

  4. AWESOME!!! Now I definitely can't wait to get it!

    Oh, yeah, @jmaster... THEY DON'T DO THE WEEKLY UPDATES ANYMORE. They stopped promising that quite a while ago. Now it takes them a month or so.

  6. Jason, Dave swears you don't have to buy again. So I just tried it for the first time on my iPad. it LOOKS like you are about to purchase it (you even see the popup that says "buy this for 99 cents"...but then once I hit OK, it says "You've already purchased this" and then I have it. If you end up accidentally paying for it, let me know!

  7. Hey Allan, I have 2 things I would like to get your opinion on. The first one is my earlier comment that was cobwebs in the canabalt mingame that the pygmies runs through that slow them down (for variety:)

    And my other idea was more of for Ape Island. I suggest that you make it the main island in the PG world. By that I mean, pease make it a bigger island! But I don't mean in width - I mean in depth. If this island is going to have a jungle, have it fill the space where the water would be in the background. With this twist, you can flick pygmies into the background and they will crash deep within the forest, rather than drowning. It would bring some new elements to PG making the new island feel more fresh rather than the somewhat repetitive islands that are already present. And your new monster (say a giant ape or other creatures) could come crashing out of the jungle. Please consider this suggestion, and by the way I saw the purple octopus tentacle in the comic! :D And of course you know I'm hoping that you will still do my Octopus battle! The one that had the concept art and the flicking pygmies idea back before you even made the ice island, remember?

    Oh well, I still have that email if you ever want me to resend it :/ PLEASE RESPOND!!!

  9. Hey Allan, I have a new idea for a mini-game. You could call it Ooga Raft, and the basic idea would be that a Pygmy would ride a raft (maybe with a flag) over the water, while trying to avoid lightning, falling rocks and sharks (maybe even laser sharks!) Please reply back telling me what you think.

  14. I was also thinking about an ape island feature that would be cool if you added it. Make it an island you can explore. Make the island a HUGE island where the pygmies are stranded in th middle of the Jungle and you can pick a specific one to explore it with a machine gun. So like a duel-stick shooter kind of mini game. There's various traps and creatures you have to face, and once you kill a good number of creatures, the boss comes in. I was also hoping that you could do a cross over with mountain sheep where you can use the charicters made by them as backup if the pygmie dies and also the furries as creatures. Please give your opinion.
