Media Release -- Ape Entertainment and Bolt Creative announced today that Pocket God Comics issue No. 17 is now available on the App Store for iPhone, iPad and iPod touch. In part three of "Gem Cell Research," the tribes may or may not survive the Seaweed Monster. And with the girls' regeneration gem still busted, they are all out of second chances.
This drives Sun and Ooga to train both tribes in what to do in an emergency because we all know there is going to be another one of those sooner or later. Meanwhile, Klik and Teela work to fix the girls' gem. And it's looking pretty good too, but can they fix the broken gem before someone dies of a broken heart? This issue promises fans the most shocking and unexpected ending of any issue so far! And if fans are shocked and amazed by that, just wait until they see what we have in mind for parts 4 & 5!
Based on Pocket God, one of the best-selling iPhone apps of all-time, the full-color digital comic book series is one of the most successful digital comics to-date. The comics are available on the App Store via iVerse Media, a digital distribution partner of Ape Entertainment.
The Pygmy Peril Newsletter: No. 21 is now available with more Fan Art, and Thomas Dye's post-Comic-Con report.
Not only do we announce another winner in our own official Olympygs, we also announce the amazingly amazing LAST competition in the official OLYMPYGS competition! It's huge! It's the TRIATHLON OF TERROR!
All that, plus the usual features, letters and of course the LITTLE GREEN MEN too!
Pricing and Availability:
The Pocket God Comics App is available for $.99 USD from the App Store on iPad, iPhone and iPod touch or at www.itunes.com/appstore.
