QUEBEC CITY, Canada - December 2, 2011

Frima Studio, in conjunction with Bolt Creative, announced today that the Facebook version of Pocket God now counts more than 1 million unique players amongst its registered ranks of destructive deities. Since its release in December of 2010, Pocket God for Facebook has consistently delivered a uniquely satisfying social experience, building on the wild popularity of the original mobile version. With frequent updates, Pocket God always remains fresh and exciting for even the most veteran players.

No game delivers the satisfaction of omnipotence quite like Pocket God. With absolute control over their cadre of pygmy islanders, players must carefully balance their benevolence with sacrifice to increase their power. As players increase their powers, they earn various currencies to add ever more eccentric ways to go about aiding and tormenting the pygmies, advancing from simply dropping them in deep water to flinging them in to hot volcanoes and submitting them to slow deaths in hot pits of tar.

Shortly before Halloween, Frima released its latest update to Pocket God, maintaining the game’s high standards and longevity with spooky new additions. With the inclusion of magical, pygmy smashing pumpkins and a host of new challenges Pocket God continues its legacy as one of the most successful, multi-platform casual games on the market.
