Oh those poor, unfortunate Pygmies. Since January 2009, the original smash hit app, Pocket God, has received 35 updates, bringing shark infested waters, dangerous volcanoes, vicious ice geysers, death inducing ghosts, and ritualistic death to the stoic island Pygmies. Very rarely in their existence have the Pygmies been given an update that didn’t involve the death of the little island natives, but the 35th update gives them something magical to behold.
A double rainbow… all the way across the sky!
The new episode, titles “Double Rainbow All The Way Across The Sky,” gives you the ability to hand draw double rainbows that the pygmies will fawn over. Instead of just using their loving eyes, the pygmies can now talk, saying things like “full on,” “what does this mean!?” and more. Their oogling looks of bewilderment have also been added to the story mode so that fans can add them to their own Pocket God stories.
Also added in the 1.35 update are some menu changes and text labels that have been put in place to help new users navigate through all the different mini-games, islands, and sandbox modes. The game has added so much in the past two years that even some of the original Pocket God players might need a refresher to catch up.
If you haven’t had a chance to pick up this App Store Top 100 mainstay, now would be a great time to jump in. With the newly updated menu system, and the culmination of two years of episode updates, Pocket God really is one of the most content packed games in the App Store. It doesn’t have a story per se, but it will certainly offer up hours of Pygmy destroying entertainment.
Longtime fans of the series will also be happy to hear that the second issue of Pygmy Peril has been released, and that the third edition of the Pocket God comic book will be out in the near future. Enjoy!
