Everything you ever wanted to know about Pygmies but were afraid to ask...

Hey everyone! So, we're working our butts off on two (actually three) updates at once. We have a cool new planet for Journey To Uranus: Mercury! the preview is in an earlier post. We are also working on TWO updates at once for Pocket God. One of them is pretty extensive, so we're getting the art ready for that and plan on putting out a mini-update in between to tie people over. Hopefully we'll have that submitted by early next week, with the other update part way done so there won't be a big gap between.

Anyway, so we need something to blog about and I wanted to point out something I stumbled on in Internet land...I was already aware that fans were maintaining our Wikipedia page, which is awesome! I can't believe this stuff just gets done for you without you having to make an effort! But also, there's another site called Wikia, where it looks like the wiki watchdogs are a little looser, and there are pages and PAGES of Pocket God info and trivia! This includes all PG projects...Facebook and Comic included! I was chagrinned to see that it pretty much takes note of all details, no matter how small (or logic-defying) in point: The Pygmy entry said you can have a maximum of seven pygmies on the island. I think "whoops! They got a detail wrong! Of course the number is six!" Then I read the bullet points on how to get 7 pygmies and was amused to see the entry was actually right! There is a way!

Want to know how to do it? Well, you gotta visit the wikia Pocket God "Pygmy" entry!

And thanks to whoever is taking the time to write all that! Its awesome.

Oh, and a note. Because Blogger seems to have better Spam protection now, I've decided to open up commenting to anyone who feels like it. Signing up for Blogger and waiting for my approval seems to deter conversation. But this is just a test. If I get tons of spam or unsavory posts (feel free to critique Pocket God, but keep it family friendly please!) I'll revert to the old way where I review comments.


  1. Hey Allan, thanks for putting pocket god wiki up, I am an editor there and really appreciated seeing this wiki getting noticed.

  2. Hooray!! finally I can comment!

  3. just a question.. why hasn't the current updates icon been added to the list?

  4. I play every kind of Pocket god games: Original, JTU, Facebook. They are all awesome... BUT:
    Favorite: Original.
    Best Graphics: JTU or Facebook
    Best Gameplay: Original/JTU
    Funnest: Facebook

  5. I was wondering...when will the new jtu come out?

  6. Huge fan of Pocket God. Wish I could play the JTU or the Facebook. My parents won't let me get a Facebook and I don't have an iPad. Any chance that JTU will be coming to the iPhone/iPod Touch in the future?
    I'm going to so try out the 7 pygmy thing. Hopefully I can figure it out (I'm not good at that stuff haha).

  7. Can you please say what to download, and better explain how you started animating, and better explain what C++ and all that stuff is and how to use it?
    Please post all that in the Pygmy Peril. I want to make animated cartoons, so also (if you know how to do that) explain that.

  11. Brilliant idea. Should get you even more downloads. Anyone got any ideas for future updates?

  12. you need to stop adding more paid packs to the game!!! please just add on to them or make any new packs included with an old ones. YOU HAVE $11 WORTH OF THEM!!! i want them all i have boughten seven of them and i really cannot afford to buy any more of them.

  13. I love Pocket God, but it really needs an update for the Android.

  14. I agree with Anonymous :p is there a chance for an area to see the progress of the Android updates?

  15. Well March is nearly over and we haven't got a JTU or PG update this month :(

    What happened to the coding elves? Are they ill? upset? on strike? stuck in an infinite loop?

    Maybe we need to change the lyrics to the Update song?

    # You said they'd be an update once a month.
    # You lied, and where are all the female pygmies?


  16. ^ perhaps theres a clonoing disaster!
