Pocket God at 2011 San Diego Comic-Con!

It's that time of year again, kids! This week we're headed to San Diego to attend the infamous Comic-con. This time around we're loaded up with swag. We'll have the usual poster give-aways, but for sale will be PVC figures, t-shirts and of course, COMICS! Dave and I will be hanging with the Ape gang at the Ape Comic Booth (#1804) every day from 1 to 3...so come by, say hi (don't be shy, we're chatty), check out the stuff, and we'll sign a poster for ya! The big question for this year is: will the code-word "summer squash" get you anything? You'll have to stop by and find out...but if I were you, I'd do it early. Oh, and we can demo the slightly-delayed Battle of the Gods. It's almost there but we need another week to polish it up. Here is Ape's schedule:

Overdue blog post! Where is the update?

It's that time of year again! Vacation time! To complicate matters, we're working on the craziest update "Battle of the Gods" we've ever worked on. The plan was to have it done before I went on vacation but after working hard on it, it became clear that it needed more love. The reality is we're trying to make a game design that would take most companies several months to a year and squeezing the production into a month (ok, a little more). There's quite a game behind that battle arena! I'm back but it needs some more animations from me now. But mostly we need to work on the game mechanic a little more.

In the meanwhile, Journey To Uranus now has zombies! And you can do more than create them. you can take them off planet or have another pygmy fight them! We also have more planned for the zombies for the next update, so I know it looks like not much is happening but we are working hard.

To make matters a EVEN MORE complicated, Dave and I will drop by Comic-con this coming week. We're trying to submit beforehand, but I'm concerned we won't. So, vacation is over and it's back to work!

More coming!
