Busy Month! Much Needed Blog Post!
Hey guys. Sorry for neglecting the blog. We still run pretty lean and mean here, so if I'm not blogging it's because I work day and night on designing and animating the next update! So let's do a check-in one by one...
Pocket God- Episode 39 (sneak peak of new island above) was submitted last weekend and we are awaiting approval. This episode adds a new twist to all the Pocket God functions and pays homage to all 39 episodes. It also sets PG up for a great new mini-game that will require -gasp- strategy! That should be out by next week at the latest.
Facebook Ep. 7 - Supersize PygME is now live! You can now buy magic mushrooms which the Pygmies can eat...causing them to enlarge! We couldn't do this on the iPhone because of graphic size constraints, but it works great on Facebook! And we have tons of new features planned...as well as optimizations (for game play and faster loading) so stay tuned...If you haven't already, join today! It just gets better and better!

Pocket God the Comic - Part 2 of Tale of Two Pygmies is just about finished in the coloring process. Our artist was down sick, so it is a bit delayed, but we have hired more artists to help speed up the issue release...and this is thanks to awesome sales! We were on a phone call with Ape Entertainment and not only is the next story AFTER ToTP nearly written, with art already in progress, but we are mapping out THREE more 4 issue story arcs after that. And we group them into 4 -issue sagas, but there is an over-arching story that expands and explains the Pygmies' world. Can't wait to see how it comes out! Hopefully we will get the system in place where they come out faster!
But in the meanwhile, the Pygmy Peril #6 has arrived (Pygmy Perils are all free with purchase of app)! Ape's new editor, Matt Anderson, gets his first taste of the Pygmy World...and Dave writes about how to program games, as well as the usual letters to the editor.

Journey To Uranus - We're currently working on the next update which should be done by next week....but the central focus of this update is NOT what you think! More on this later.
Also, we have a few other irons in the fire but I do want to address something I've seen mentioned. There has been grumbling we never quite got our plushes off the ground. We had some major problems lining up a competent manufacturer, and it just turned out to be too difficult and time-consuming for us to do on our own. But the solution is on it's way! More on THAT later as well.
