Hope everybody’s having fun making their fugus hop high! Our Hatch/Ooga Jump crossover has gotten some cool mentions recently across the web.
9to5 Mac has a report here, including the news that Hatch is presently 50% off at the iTunes App Store, thus, now is the time to check it out if you haven’t already!
Our friends at TouchArcade call it “what might be the most elaborate crossover we’ve seen yet.” They also mention that Hatch is on sale!
So if you’re curious about the hub-bub, but still haven’t tried it, get yourself Hatch (which, you’ll remember, is currently half off) and Ooga Jump… and see how pets and pygmies propel things to a whole new level! Thanks for all your awesome support.
Here it is… everyone’s favorite Fugus fall into flying fun with the new Hatch/Ooga Jump crossover! Slam bouncing to gain Oogles isn’t just for Pygmies anymore!
Here’s how it works. First, you need both Hatch and Ooga Jump! Once you’re inside Hatch, pick up a free “Ooga” doll in the Hatch “store” and it will be placed in the Fugu’s “toy drawer”. You then take it out of the toy drawer and hand it to the Fugu. The Fugu will cuddle it a moment and then jump off screen. Your Fugu (with its customizable coloring and markings) will then jump onto the Ooga Jump island. You can then play Ooga Jump with the Fugu. And whenever you’re finished, the Fugu can return to Hatch and enjoy its Ooga plush!
The Fugu has its own fun, bouncy sounds and animations. Allan had a great deal of fun animating him. You can read a little behind-the-scenes snippet > > here < < .
Here’s a little demonstration video to show the crossover in action. Get it now and launch your Fugus hopping into high-stepping adventure!
And last but not lost:
We started the Pygmy Profiles as a way to keep up interest in the comic, but it looks like we accidentally insinuated something was coming. All the same, we did hope to have something for you by this time anyway, but there’s been some behind-the-scenes drama that we hope to explain later this week.
In the meantime, yes, believe it or not, we have some action happening on Ooga Jump! It’s taken more time than we would have liked, definitely. For most of the year, Dave and Allan have had to do some other projects to keep food on the table, trying very hard to squeeze in more Pocket God-related work in their spare moments. We’re pretty excited about it, and with any luck you should see something new very soon.
Thanks for staying with us! We couldn’t ask for better, more patient fans than you.
Whoa! And again, whoa! How the heck did we miss this? This is pretty cool! Lonnie gives his hilarious take on “Ooga Jump”! Seriously, he’s completely funny and worth seeing twice, or three times, or heck, make it five times. You got something else going on?
And Lonnie, when monkeys rip your face off, we promise it isn’t personal. Monkeys are just made of 100% pure mutilation. Well, at least in this universe!
You owe it to yourself! And to humanity. But primarily yourself.
