Crack is Wack approved!

Should be live some time today. So I won't re-explain the update, but here are a few screen shots

And a couple of the ice monster skin in the ice monster skin pack!

Oh, and don't forget the Story Mode! We've added the story "Crack is Wack" and added a few new states including the ability to have a pygmy fall down a crack in the Earth.

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!

Crack is Wack submitted

For various reasons, this one kept getting delayed, but we've submitted it and we hope everyone likes it. We kind of went to town on it...Dave's touch arcade post should be coming soon! I'll let him explain it.

Pocket God Comic Sneak Preview

So, I've been dying to blog an image from the upcoming Pocket God Comic, so I decided to do it today! Did I do it to distract you from the fact that the next update has taken longer than we expected? No way.

I was tempted to post a more action-packed spoilerish image, but Dave and I decided the first page was appropriate since it reveals the comic-ized look and feel of the Pygmies, with their customized features. In order on the top page we see Klak (just barely), Booga, Klik, Dooby, Nooby and Ooga paying reverence to the gods with a pile of stinky fish. Ew! And of course, danger is coming from above, and only Ooga seems to have taken notice.

Ape Entertainment has been flooding us with scripts, designs and comic pages like crazy and we totally love everything they're doing. The created a 4-issue story of the Pygmies and an adventure that takes them off the island and into great (surprise surprise!) danger! Also included will be mini-stories in each comic that will cover various aspects of life with the Pygmies, including an origin story! Well, I better not give it all away, but we are very excited.

I want to thank the guys at Ape , David Hedgecock, Brent Erwin, Jason Burns as well as the amazing artist Rolando Mallada for all the fantastic work they've done. We are really honored to work with them.

And okay, I won't ignore the 800 pound gorilla in the room (no, not Ape!). The next episode "Crack is Wack" is taking longer than expected. But it is VERY cool. The mini game, the runs, even gets its own theme music, and extra creatures and of course brutal deaths. The god power referenced in the title isn't too shabby. I keep seeing speculation that this episode has DRUGS in it. No, we haven't put drugs in Pocket God! Not yet anyway :) So... thanks for your continuing patience. An operator will be with you shortly.
