Journey To Uranus coming to iPad


Hey guys! Remember that teaser image we put up a while ago.... well, finally, we're unveiling the next Pocket God project, "Journey To Uranus", coming this Fall to the iPad! It won't be a remake of Pocket God or even "Pocket God II", but Pocket-God spinoff set of mini-games centered around being able to take Pygmies to other worlds. All the interactivity will focus on the strengths of the iPad, namely the bigger size, the extra screen real estate and multi-touch.

>> Read CNN Article Here <<

This doesn't mean we are stopping Pocket God "proper". We have recruited the programming team (Paul Pridham and Elias Pschernig) to help us out while we still work on PG updates. We are already working on the next update as part of our primate theme. And the current update "A Pygmy A Day Keeps the Ape Away" is ready to go...We just have to wait a bit for the comic to be reviewed so we can time both to come out at the same time! As usual, sorry for the wait!

  1. Cool! I can't wait! :D
    One thing - even though it's not a remake, will we still be able to use it sort-of like a Pocket God HD version? I want to be able to mess with pygmies on an island with a shark in HD. However it's going to work, I can't wait for it to come out! Journey to URANUS FTW!

  2. Kudos on the CNN article...came across it right before I saw this post. Awesome, guys! Look forward to seeing the iPad app when it arrives (though, to be honest, PocketGod on the iPad looks great on its own!).

  3. @ Bolt Creative

  4. I'm not sure if I want an iPad. You might lose a MASSIVE install base with making it iPad exclusive. It's a shame.

  10. Must you wait until the comic is released to update the app? I understand you want to make a big release, but it will probably be off a little anyway because of how long apple takes to approve things.

    On a different note, I still think you should do a Zombieville crossover and have the zombieville guy shoot the zombies on the zombie island.

  11. is it only for ipad, not itouch?

    ReplyDelete
  12. All questions answered....well I need to know how I can get the skin packs loaded back onto my iPod touch. the app store allowed me to download and install Pocket God. So far I have only redownloaded 1 or 2 of the skin packs because I am being charged again for them.
    So How Can I Re-download and Install the Skin Packs??

    Thanks Much!

  13. Is this gonna slow updates for the iPhone version even more??

    ReplyDelete
  14. Nooo!
    Why is it only for the iPad? Can you please make an iPod/iPhone version?

    ReplyDelete
  15. No it needs to be iPad exclusive because pocket god is for iPhone and JTU is for iPad
    (JTU - Journey to Uranus)

  16. Another request here for an iPhone version - there are so many ways to handle the extra features the iPad offers. Please don't let your loyal fanbase down - it works both ways.

    Surely an iPhone port could ONLY be a good thing.

  17. I'd like to take my Journey to Uranus ON THE GO. :P That sounds rude.

    ReplyDelete
  18. This sounds AWESOME!!!!!!! I'm now about a million times happier I got an iPad.

    ReplyDelete
  19. will it work on i phone 4 with its retina display and multi touch.

    ReplyDelete
  20. I love pocket god please don't send it to the iPad (which might as well be ur actual anus)

    ReplyDelete
  21. Not for iphone and iPod touch? Dave please tell it is for iPhone and itouch because I don't want to by $500 for 1 game.

    ReplyDelete
  22. Stop asking if there is an iPhone version because there isn't this is an iPad exclusive and Hey! You already have the iPhone exclusive game so no this is just for iPad and I can't wait.

    ReplyDelete
  23. Please don't make it iPad-exclusive, many people don't have them! Like me, for instance!

    ReplyDelete
  24. No offense but you really need to worry about the updates instead of the newer game. Its gone from once a week to once a month to obe every 2 months and going slower. The updates also need more torture instead of dumb minigames that are only fun the first time theyre played.

  25. Amazing blog! We at THE TERRORLAND (http://theterrorland.blogspot.com) are gonna follow you. Be blessed.

  26. I want that comic! Looks so funny and cool! Uranus sounds funny, although nerdy-me must come out: it's pronounced Ur-an-us, not Ur-ān-us.
    I'd still by it! A pygmy in a spacesuit would be hilarious!

  27. Another call for an iPhone version here!

    What do you have to lose from doing so? As you may see, there is plenty to gain...

    ReplyDelete
  28. It's really too bad that you are releasing Journey to Uranus only for the iPad. Just don't forget how you got to where you are, from the iPhone and iPod touch users who love the original Pocket God!

  29. Alright you guys are killing this game, u went from being on top of this game all the time to taking over 2 monthes for an update. Don't expect much either it's going to be another small update anyways. Good work hope your doing well with your comic books, plush dolls and verizon phones, glad to see you appreciate the people who helped u grow!

    ReplyDelete
  30. how can you say the updates will come slower? they already come once every 3 months or so!

    ReplyDelete
  31. Just had the idea of sending an update out before this one that goes with the comic that has somin to do with time control so episode like 34 before 33 or do it later on

    ReplyDelete
  32. You guys should add the smoke monster from lost to the jungle island. That would be amazing to be in control of the smoke monster

  33. Alost a month and two weeks now... Ill just have to stop waiting...
    As for journey to uranus , its a very stupid decision to make it ipad exclusive. Ipad represents 10% of the appstore, or even less. You know that we would all buy it if it was on itouch and iphone... I guess its fair ; we lose a great app, you lose stacks of money

  34. It's a shame it's an iPad exclusive. I've pretty much burnt out on pocket god at this point and was anxious to find out what was coming next. The great thing about pocket god was always that just when you got tired of it, you came out with something new. It was perfect for those of us with short attention spans. The new content you've been providing lately, while it is more expansive than before, it seems to take too long relative to the amount of time that I spend with it. I Don't plan to get an iPad anytime soon, and as cool as your next app will probably be it's not going to be go out and spend $500+ dollars to get one now cool. IMHO unless you have something totally new in the pipes for iphone/ipod as well, you're going to lose a ton of your base fans. I hope not though as I enjoy your work and will probably pick up an iPad in a few years and hope you'll still be making apps and still going strong at that point. Until then; it's been fun, but pocket god's going to have to be moved to the folder of games I don't hardly play but don't want to delete.

  40. In respose to allot u who want a version for the iPod touch I say sense it's an exclusive for the upas they shuld give it to the upas for 99 cents and to the touch and iPhone users for 2.99 or4.99 yeah it's a bit pricy but if U are that desperate for a game that's worth it u better show ur thnx to them, I don't own an upas but I wuld pay it in the blink of an eye if they released a version for the touch so... WHO WITH ME!!!!
