SAN FRANCISCO - Sept. 26, 2012 - Attention all passengers headed for Apocalypse Island, an urgent travel advisory has been issued. Due to a deadly plague of biblical proportions running its course through all of Pygmy-kind (released into the wild today by Bolt Creative in Pocket God Episode 46: Germs of Endearment), we strongly urge you to be considerate and cover your mouth while passing away into the afterlife in order to prevent further spreading of this malicious ailment. Also of grave importance, please stay away from the new—and aptly named—Plague Room, as the water contained in the fountain within this chamber is infected with the virulent disease.
Please keep in mind that this daunting affliction is not limited to just Pygmies; all forms of life on every island, including gigantic apes, poo-slinging monkeys, hungry T-Rexes, and sharks with laser beams, run the risk of contracting this perilous malady. Even non-organic, inanimate objects can be contaminated, so exercise caution when using an outhouse, borrowing fishing poles, playing the bongos, and more.
Alternatively, if you would like to live just a little bit longer, you may visit our other new addition to Apocolypse Island—the Purification Room—a chamber containing a fountain filled with non-alcoholic hand sanitizer. This concoction of disease fighting liquid will not only help stave the spread of infection, but it also won’t dry out your skin. Because really, who wants flaky hands when you’re dying.
Thank you for your cooperation and have a nice death.
-Department of Epidemic Advisory Distribution (D.E.A.D.)
P.S. A wickedly cute Monster Skin Pack, created by artist Aaron Blecha, is now available for in-app purchase at $0.99. Though the Monster Skin Pack won’t save your Pygmies from the blight, they’ll look pretty darn cool.
