"Say Your Prayers" - Harvester Challenge on Facebook!

Hey folks! We're a little late here with this update but there's still plenty of time to explore the new Harvester challenge on Facebook!

For the next five days, you can buy the new Chubby Turkey power. When you buy this power, a turkey will fly by periodically. Strike the turkey with lightning and it will fall to the island, whereupon a hungry Pygmy will eat it.

When THAT happens, revenge is swift! Two new turkeys fly to the island, and peck their Pygmy tormentors to death! The turkeys then travel to the opposite side of the island, pecking whatever unfortunate Pygmy is in their path. When they reach the end of the island, they fly away, and the cycle begins all over again.

The global challenge is to sacrifice 550,000 pygmies in the next five days. So far, there have been over 50,000 sacrifices made. If everyone reaches that total goal, every Facebook player will win another idol!

Go over to the Facebook app today and give it a try. For extra fun, see how many Pygmies you can have the two turkeys peck before they fly away. Click on the Harvester icon on the left of the Facebook app to see how far people have come.

Dave on BBC Podcast about Steve Jobs!

Hey again, folks. Long time no blog!

Again, we can only apologize for the long silence. But there hasn't been much to report recently: we're still working hard on the new update, sometimes putting in sixteen-hour days to get things right. (Allan and Dave would love to put in more, but there's this annoying thing called "sleeping" that they have to do.) We're still waiting for Issue 11 of the Pocket God comic to come out, as well.

We should have some interesting articles on the blog coming up within a week or two, so stay tuned! And, as always, the minute any news happens, you will hear about it here.

In the meantime, Dave has made an appearance on a BBC podcast about Steve Jobs. It's called "Upsetting the Apple Cart - The Genius of Steve Jobs" and he appears at about the 0:35 mark.

More Decapithon reviews... and a comic preview!

Hey again! Hope everyone had a good Halloween, eating candy and destroying Pygmy zombies. And speaking of the latter, Decapithon has had some more reviews come in:

>> The Appera has a positive write-up here! <<

>> App Advice gives a solid Decapithon rundown here. <<

And Gamezebo mentions how the Decapithon carries on in the tradition of the platformer "Ghosts 'n' Goblins":
We’ve had a chance to fool around with this new mode, and from zombie Pygmies coming out of the ground to the very deliberate arc of the axe-throw, there’s no question that the folks at Bolt Creative put this together as a loving tribute to one of the toughest platformers of all time.

Also, the above art sample indicates that Issue 11 of the Pocket God will soon be surfacing for the public to see! This, of course, continues the "A Quest Called Tribe" story arc, just as APE Entertainment, of course, continues its tradition of rich, quality art. I won't give away very much about the story, except to say that Nooby always seems to discover the most interesting mysteries, even if he can't fully understand them!
