Top 5 Rejected Ideas for Pocket God Updates

Hey everybody! Allan and Dave have recovered from their familial duties over the holidays and are working on a new crossover with Ooga Jump. In the meantime, enjoy this entirely inaccurate and fictional bit of absolutely real-except-for-what-we-made-up-which-is-all-of-it trivia:

5) The Katamari Damacy Pygmy

When lightning strikes a Pygmy, he rolls around the island and the ocean, absorbing everything in sight (including Dodo bombs), getting bigger all the time. Finally, when the Pygmy in question absorbed 100 dead Pygmies, he exploded, leaving body parts and entrails everywhere. The idea was quietly dropped.

4) The Pacific Rim tribute

Issues of scale came into play almost immediately; the minute the Pygmies created the giant robot, the island became smaller than a pixel, making the task of stomping specific Pygmies a bit of a challenge. The problem was almost solved by making the robots smaller than a palm tree, but by this time no one was feeling it.

3) The Filing Cabinet Island

An island of daring and excitement, as the Pygmies are expected to file several years of tax returns correctly, or the filing cabinets come to life and eat them! If they escape the filing cabinets, there’s always the Deadly Photocopier right around the corner to squirt them with cyan toner! Abandoned when Dave ate a really good breakfast one morning.

2) “Meet the Meat”

A huge meat grinder has landed on the island. Drop a Pygmy inside, crank the handle, and the Pygmy comes out as a Kardashian. At this point, the other Pygmies turn feral and tear it limb from limb. The idea was abandoned when no one could agree on what shape a meat grinder was.

And finally…

1) The “Identical Triangles” Skin

The slogan would have been “Turn the asteroid into a triangle! Turn the T-Rex into a triangle! Turn the Dodo… into another triangle! Everything looks like triangles as the Pygmies go minimalist-cubist!” After a long, long enforced rest, Dave and Allan decided against it.

… More less-fictional news as it comes in!

The Pocket God Comic on TVTropes

In case you haven’t seen it, the Pocket God comic has its own entry on TVTropes. The main app has had an entry for some time, but it’s very interesting how the comic also has its own entry.

> > Click here to read it! < <

Here are some our favorite entries:

Let’s Split Up, Gang: In “The Pygmies Strike Back”, the tribes split up. One group — Ooga, Sun, Nooby, Moon, Booga, and Kinsee — goes after whoever is sending the killer robots and the other group is going back to the boy’s island for safety. However before Klik’s group can leave, his Spirit Advisor tells them that Ooga’s group is walking into a trap. Klik instead leads his group deeper into the jungle to find a way to help Ooga’s group.

No Party Like a Donner Party: In issue 23, Ooga’s group has spent days trekking across the desert; with their food and water running low. Kinsee gets so hungry she considers eating the others. While they can always resurrect, they keep her from doing it because they don’t want to be cannibals.

Oxygenated Underwater Bubbles: In “A Quest Called Tribe”, the pygmies meet a tribe of anthromorphic crustaceans called Bubble Breathers. True to their name, they blow bubbles with their oxygenated saliva; which the pygmies use to breathe underwater.

Meanwhile, Issue 26 is in the inking stage, featuring the exciting climax of “The Pygmies Strike Back!” We’re hoping to get that out as soon as possible early next year!

Ooga Jump is now free!

Yes, that’s right. Ooga Jump is now being sold for $0.00.

We’ve made a new update for Ooga Jump that changes the way it’s structured. While Ooga Jump is now free, there is also now advertising. If you paid for Ooga Jump originally and have played the last update or two, you should NOT see the ads. Unfortunately, if you have not updated Ooga Jump since its original release, you will still see the ads. However, there is good news: if you make an in-app purchase in the store, the ads will go away forever.

Another change we’ve made is to the nature of the power-ups. Instead of selecting the artifacts at the beginning of the game, they are now scattered through the game itself. You can even upgrade them in the store. From left to right, these artifacts are:

The Ghost Charm. This makes the pygmy invincible to obstacles, though not to gravity.

The Jet Pack. This jets the pygmy Rocket past extra oogles. If you upgrade, the jet pack will attract gems as well! This effect also affects the “Save Me” feature, as well as Boosts.

The Gem Magnet. This attracts gems and gives you the gem’s sparkly height boost.

The Gravity Feather. This reduces gravity and slows the pygmy’s falling rate.

The Platform Spring. This increases pygmy’s jump height.

All these power-ups are temporary, so be sure to act quickly!

As a note, these artifacts override the original artifacts. If you’ve already spent gems on artifacts, the gems will be refunded to you.

Also, background themes are now an in-app purchase. If you’ve already bought a theme with gems, it will remain unlocked.

We’re hoping by making it free, we will be able to get more players. With more players, there’s more opportunities for us to upgrade Ooga Jump, add skins, and generally make it more excellent.

We want to thank everyone who bought Ooga Jump originally! Remember, if you’ve already paid for Ooga Jump and played one of the recent updates, you should not see advertising. Your loyalty always inspires us and we hope that we can make this game even better, sparklier and jumpier!

And be sure to spread the word! The Expanding World of Pocket God depends on your likes and reviews on iTunes!
