So, once again we've hit a lull in Pocket God world. That is not to say we aren't extremely busy behind the curtain with updates. We hope to get one out in the next two weeks and then the other soon after. We're not sure which update will come first, PG Uranus or PG proper, but here's a quick blurb on each project.
Pocket God: We are adding yet another new area to the map! However, it might not be what you expect and it will have a new creature. I am still actually animating the creature, but this part should be done pretty soon. Dave's been upgrading Pocket God code (again) and we will be using some new technology, so a bonus feature will soon be added to Battle of the Gods. What is it? Well, I'm told not to reveal it but it's gonna be cool!
Pocket God Uranus: The second part of our Zombie Island addition is taking a bit more time. It actually has THREE new characters in a brand new game (above is a sneak peek of Big Booga)! And I'm going to go ahead and clue you in, it will involve zombies and is called "Decapithon". Use your imagination on that one!
Pocket God Comic: Well, we caught some heat for our cross-over. While we made an attempt to write a story that will be important to the Pocket God world, it is, admittedly, an odd issue. However, the next story arc "A Tribe Called Quest" is on its way and is more in line with the first two arcs... except (we hope) BETTER! The adventure is bolder, the stakes are higher and the cast of characters continues to grow. As the tribe gets to know Sun, they resolve to help her. This takes the pygmies on a new journey that hints at their mysterious past and alludes to future conflicts with mysterious forces. And as we learned at the end of Tale of Two Pygmies, Newbie (Nooby's allegedly evil clone) is somehow involved! Check out this sneak peek of Issue 10!
Pocket God Facebook: As some of you may be aware, we had some growing pains starting in the spring. As the community grew, it strained the servers and technology behind it, so we've gone back to the drawing board a bit. Frima has been working hard all summer to stabilize PG Facebook and we're gearing up to make a big push for new players again! Meanwhile, it has been chugging along and there have been some new additions. This deserves its own blog entry so more on this later.
Top Secret Pocket God Project: Still top secret! Hence the name! Of course you could point out how ridiculous it is to call it top secret when it can't be THAT secret if I'm writing about it. But let's just say it's Top Secret and not Top Top Secret. Or we could just forget about it for now and move on to the next item...
Pocket God Merchandise! Items we've been promising all year (turns out merchandising is HARD!) are on their way and we will definitely have new stuff to sell before Christmas! More on THIS later!
Speaking of merchandise, the above pygmy plushes are fan-made by MJDIllusion!

So that's quite a bit of news for a slow news week! I hope it whets your appetite. Since it's probably not practical to invite everyone into our homes to watch us work, you'll have to take our word for it that everything we've mentioned is on the fast track to becoming a reality. Stick around!
