SAN FRANCISCO - August 3, 2010
Bolt Creative today announced the official release of Pocket God issue #1, a comic book based on the best-selling iPhone app. The comic is immediately available for download for $0.99 with future issues also available for $0.99 through in-app purchases. The first issue of the four part, full color mini-series is currently available on the iTunes App Store and through iVerse Media, a digital distribution partner of Ape Entertainment.
Pocket God #1 showcases the mishaps of a tribe of Pygmies who have been gifted with immortality and are constantly marked for death by the Gods. Issue #1 starts off as a typical day on the island, with the Pygmies pranking each other to death, literally, until a twist turns their tropical life topsy-turvy. Follow the adventures of Ooga, Klik, and the rest of gang as they experience death by falling objects, sudden lightning strikes, sharks with laser beams, and more comical scenarios based off the popular app. Alien probing may or may not also be present.
“Pocket God has been a huge success on the iOS platform and we’re excited to bring the hilarity and fun to a whole new medium,” said Dave Castelnuovo, CEO of Bolt Creative.“We’re certain fans of the game will get a kick out of this new comic series and, vice versa, we can’t wait to show the comic world our universe full of death inducing satire.”
