SAN FRANCISCO - May 19, 2009

Bolt Creative today announced‘Return of the Pygmy,’ the third episode in a trilogy of updates for their popular iPhone game Pocket God. Coming very soon, this important update gives the iPhone inhabitants the first-ever chance to fight back against the malicious T-Rex who appeared on the island in the last episode.

‘Return of the Pygmy’ also features a retooled game engine that speeds up load times and improves performance, making room for even more ambitious additions in future episodes, including more expansions to the game world, comprehensive leaderboards and stats, and even some light RPG elements– so stay tuned.

“We realized that the little guys on the island have gone far too long without the means to defend themselves, considering all the hardship they’ve faced over the weeks,” said Dave Castelnuovo of Bolt Creative.“We wish the island-dwellers the best of luck– and for all the Pocket Gods out there, a word of warning: watch for flying spears, they’re sharp!”
