The Pocket Blog
Hey, folks. We know it’s been quiet. “Ooga Jump” is still getting prepped for release, and Dave and Allan are finding the usual glut of last-minute things they have to do before they put it in your capable hands. Even so, Allan has found a little extra time to design a little something extra for it to make it cooler. They’re both crazy-perfectionist that way!
However, we have more news. The Pygmy Peril ran a contest where readers could submit their own captions to a page of the Pocket God comic. The winner was Sarina, and an excerpt of her entry is above. Congratulations, Sarina!
Weldon Adams adds:
If you would like to be as cool as Sarina, you need to be reading THE PYGMY PERIL and entering our next contest! And it’s FREE! FREE as a Dodo! (Provided you have purchased the app itself) So what are you waiting on? Enter!
Good luck, my little pygmies and pygmites!

We’re very excited to announce that, as Apple approaches 50 billion app downloads, that Pocket God has reached #11 on the list of Top All-Time Paid Apps! As one of the Bolt Creative team put it, “This is KILLER!! It is a complete honor and moment for a pat on the back!”

We’re very excited, since we’re now preparing “Ooga Jump” for release and this puts the fire in our belly to make sure it’s the best we can create, so that the next time we can rise even HIGHER on the list!

The Pygmies, now split up, continue their quest in Part Two of “The Pygmies Strike Back!”
The two tribes have divided into two separate factions with their own goals — and their own gems. Ooga’s half of the tribes have crossed the sea, following Nooby’s “thingy” to find whoever’s been hunting them. Klak is a bit “moony” over Moon, having developed something of a bond with the dangerous thrill-seeker.
Klik’s group was originally set to head for safety on Oog Island — until Klik received a vision from the spirit in his dreams, saying that help lies inland, over the mountain range. He tells the other Pygmies of their new destination, and Klak, to say the least, isn’t happy about it!
Klak has a reason to worry, however, as the mysterious cat creature he and Moon happened to run into in the last issue could be lurking anywhere. And there’s nothing but Klik’s word for the other Pygmies to go on… are they heading into a trap of their own? And why do these cat creatures want the Pygmies, anyway?
Meanwhile, Ooga and his group aren’t doing particularly well on their quest. Is Klik right? Have they been led into a trap? Where exactly is Nooby’s thingy taking them?
Issue 22 continues the tradition of Jason Burns’ writing, Rolo and Aroldo’s artwork and colorist Diego Rodriguez’s brilliant colors. On top of it all, the APE Entertainment crew is doing their usual much-more-than-capable job of bringing it all together for your benefit! Plus, don’t forget the Pygmy Peril, which is always free!
Check out Part Two of “The Pygmies Strike Back” today!
