SAN FRANCISCO - November 5, 2010
What does this mean?! Bolt Creative announced today that its newest update for Pocket God will have Pygmies and deities alike looking at the sky in wonder as rainbows have now been added to the island’s arsenal of weather changes. With Pocket God’s 35th update, "Double Rainbow All The Way Across The Sky," players can now draw rainbows high above the island and watch their loyal subjects gush over the brilliant colors as they utter phrases such as“full on,”“what does this mean,” and more. Animations of the Pygmies looking at the rainbows in bewilderment have also been added to Pocket God’s story mode so players can incorporate them into their own fan-made fictions.
Along with the multi-colored spectacle, this mini-update for the island also includes a few menu changes which are designed to help newer players navigate between all the various modes available in Pocket God. Key menu items have been rearranged and text labels for icons have now been added, making it easier than ever for players to get into Pocket God and access all the different islands, wide variety of mini-games, and sandbox features that allow users to nurture (or smite) their followers. Okay, mostly smite.
Bolt Creative has also announced that the second issue of Pygmy Peril, a supplementary magazine included with purchase of Pocket God Comics, has been recently released. Pocket God #3, the third installment of the popular four-part Pocket God mini-series, is due out in the near future.
