It’s Close to Midnight and Something Evil’s Lurking in the Dark– In the Latest Pocket God Episode:‘Dead

SAN FRANCISCO - Sept.14, 2009

Insidious powers are at work on the Pocket God island in the latest update to the enormously popular deity simulator for the iPhone and iPod Touch. Episode 26:‘Dead Pygmy Walking,’ is bringing an army of hair-rising, brain-eating, dancing Zombie Pygmies to the App Store this week.

This particularly spooky update includes an entirely new area for fans to explore. Found to the east of the T-Rex island, the new zone includes a foreboding Pygmy Graveyard, complete with spider web (perhaps for a future update!), gravestones, and a mysterious ancient seal.

Malevolent Pocket Gods can bury their undeserving subjects, and then raise them from the dead using the ancient seal. Raised Zombie Pygmies have a taste for brains, and rather enjoy doing the‘Thriller’ dance– though they are a bit flimsy, and will break apart in a cloud of flakey skin when god-handled.

Bolt Creative is currently running a fan contest,‘Twitter Yer Picture With Pocket God On Yer iPod,’ encouraging fans to submit funny and creative pictures of themselves playing Pocket God.
