The Pocket Blog
Pocket God vs. Desert Ashes is now available from the iTunes app store, and the reviews are already coming in!
Here’s one from TouchArcade:
It holds up its end in both single-player and multiplayer, when most other options drop the ball on one or the other. … It’s a lot of fun to play with friends, and it’s a good choice if you’re looking for an accessible entry into the strategy genre.
iDownloadBlog also has a rundown of the action!
And last, but not least, Twit Picks has a video review here!
It’s actually a lot of fun. If you like turn-based real-time strategy games, this is a good one… Until Pixar and Khan Academy get together to do a game, this is the best fun out there.
Thanks, everybody, for all the positive feedback!
Hey folks! We’re excited to announce a dynamic new collaboration with Nine Tales Digital. “Pocket God vs. Desert Ashes” is a sprawling new adventure where our heroes face a new enemy and must protect their land at all costs!
Luc Bernard, creator of Eternity’s Child and Mecho Wars, has brought together Desert Ashes and Pocket God in an amazing crossover: The vicious Landians have materialized through a mysterious portal to do battle with the Pygmies, but the Pygmies don’t just sit there and take it. They FIGHT BACK!
The Pygmies aren’t alone in their fight, however. Evidently, the deadly zombies and laser-sharks have realized the Landians are a bigger threat, and ally with the Pygmies to battle this weird new foe! In the end, tons of Pocket God and Desert Ashes characters become involved in this epic war between the worlds!
“Pocket God vs. Desert Ashes” employs elaborate turn-based strategy in order to defend your territory. Single-player offers over 10 hours of gameplay, or you can use the multiplayer option with unlimited gameplay!
Gamezebo talks about it here. Look for it on August 20 on the App Store and Steam. A version for Android will also be coming soon! Get ready to RUMBLE!
It’s been a while since we’ve done a Fan Art roundup. In fact, we’ve been dramatically remiss in doing a roundup, so some of these go back a ways. But here we are! If you’ve got some fan art you’d like to have displayed here, please give us the word!
SnookieVonPink123 has already done some excellent Pocket God fan art, but we thought we’d single out this cute sketch from a year ago. Check out the rest of Snookie’s gallery for more great art!
Fawnan has given us a vision of what the ideal couples in Pocket God would be! Thanks, Fawnan!
A cool crossover will be coming to PlayStation! Luc Bernard introduces “Pocket God vs. Desert Ashes! Bernard, creator of Mecho Wars and Steam Pirates, has partnered with Dave and Allan to create a new mashup of his own Desert Ashes and Pocket God for the PlayStation!
In a way this title was always meant to happen. A few years ago I was reading a interview with Dave Castelnuovo, and I saw how much he had liked my old title Mecho Wars. Then I mentioned on Twitter that I was playing Pocket God, and Dave saw.
We both loved each others’ work, and I got to work with Bolt Creative at one point with both Dave and Alan and it was a fun experience.
So if you want to see how everyone’s favorite Pygmies will ascend to a new level of action, check out Luc’s blogpost. We will keep you posted as developments occur!
