The Pygmies Strike Back, Part 1 of 5.
After Nooby hogged the spotlight all last issue, this time everyone gets a bit of attention. But of course, in the world of POCKET GOD, a bit of attention can be Dangerous! The tribes have figured out that someone or someTHING is hunting them. So it’s Fight or Flight time! And the group is split about how to deal with that.
And what about that mysterious artifact-thingy that Nooby found last issue? How will that play into the decision?
This story kicks off the new arc that will divide the tribes like never before!

The pygmies are back, and they’re sicker than ever–literally.
Please keep in mind that this daunting affliction is not limited to just Pygmies; all forms of life on every island, including gigantic apes, poo-slinging monkeys, hungry T-Rexes, and sharks with laser beams, run the risk of contracting this perilous malady. Even non-organic, inanimate objects can be contaminated, so exercise caution when using an outhouse, borrowing fishing poles, playing the bongos, and more.
The End of Days draws nearer. But rather than dwell on the inevitable destruction of the world, the Pygmies have been given a bit of a reprieve. Bolt Creative’s newest update to their sandbox of death involves a Pygmies-only dance club. Being Pocket God it should come as no surprise that the club comes with its own set of unique perils. It’s not called Dance Dance Execution for nothing.
Players can pull a balloon down from the ceiling and give it to a pygmy who will promptly suck out the helium and start to ramble a-la David After Dentist. Silly as that might be, the real fun can be found on the dance floor. Dragging a pygmy onto it will begin a Dance Dance Revolution-style mini-game in which the proper arrows must be matched or a massive disco ball will drop down and crush the little semi-naked rug cutter.
An all-new Dance Pack (available for $0.99) rounds out the new stuff, and includes more dance moves for the pygmies. Dropping one of them into the hanging go-go cage will get them boogying to a number of tunes, including the Pocket God theme. Pocket God Episode 45: Dance Dance Execution is live and available to download right now. So Macarena on over to the App Store and get to it.
It’s hard to believe it, but Pocket God is already on its 36th update. If you’ve somehow missed it, the now-classic app gives users an island populated with charismatic “pygmies,” along with myriad ways of torturing the poor souls. Fire ants, lightning, sharks – the pygmies have gone through a lot since Pocket God’s long-ago debut. They even have their own comic now, which has also received an update. But first, let’s look at the main app.
The 36th update, named “Konkey Dong,” is the last of three primate-inspired updates. I’ll let the app’s updated description speak for itself:
A new gorilla idol appears on Ape Mountain (when the banana tree is visible). Drop a pygmy into the grip of the stone gorilla, and the real gorilla, Konkey, will come and kidnap the Pygmy! If another Pygmy is around to witness, he will attempt a rescue and start the mini-game Konkey Dong. This is our biggest mini-game yet. Inspired by the old school arcade game of yore, it has 5 levels and they are as addicting as they are challenging! Tilt the device to move left or right, tap the right to jump, hold the upper left to climb up a ladder, and the lower left to climb down a ladder. Avoid rolling boulders and beetles!
That’s not all, however. In addition to the gorilla-themed additions, the main Pocket God app has also added a Japanese Skin Pack via in-app purchase and a free Fishmas Pack. The Fishmas pack includes, um, everything you need to celebrate Fishmas. Which is apparently like Christmas. But with dead fish.
Okay, moving on before the dead fish begin to smell. Pocket God Comics #4 is now out, and readers can apparently expect everything from a “half-naked Santa Claus” to Pygmy Zombies in the recent additions. Excellent!
And finally, the charismatic pygmies from the comic are also starring in a new Fishmas-themed video. Merry Fishmas, everyone, and enjoy this slew of Pocket God updates.
