Pocket God Comics Dives 20,000 Leagues Below with Seaweed Monster in Issue No. 17

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 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.

Series Based on Popular iPhone App Introduces Issues No. 11

SAN FRANCISCO – December 8, 2011 – The lives of the Pygmies of the Pocket God universe may be full of danger and vengeful gods, but people love them! Ape Entertainment and Bolt Creative are proud to announce that the digital comic book series based on Pocket God, one of the best-selling iPhone apps of all-time, has surpassed over 500,000 downloads to-date. To celebrate, the series’ creators have partnered with Free App A Day (FAAD) to offer the first issue of the digital comic for free for a limited time.

In addition, the full-color digital comic series has today introduced issue No. 11, which is available for immediate download on iPhone, iPod touch and iPad via iVerse Media, a digital distribution partner of Ape Entertainment. The new issue features 20 pages of all new content starring the pygmies of Pocket God on their adventures to understand their world and to just stay alive as long as possible. Fans can follow Ooga, Booga, Klik, Klak, Nooby & Dooby as they get eaten by piranhas, hit by meteors, menaced by Sharks-with-Frickin-Lasers, and face even more horrible dangers.

“What makes Pocket God such a breakout hit is its attention to original characters and stories that play off the sadistic, episodic-based app that allows users to control the lives of a group of energetic pygmy islanders,” said Brent E. Erwin, Ape Co-Publisher. “We’re extremely pleased to see how well fans of Pocket God and fans of comic books have taken to the series.”

Created by Dave Castelnuovo and Allan Dye, founders of Bolt Creative, Pocket God has consistently maintained a spot in the “Top 25” games in the iTunes App Store for two and a half years running. With total sales of 7 million downloads since release, the success of Pocket God comes from a combination of endearing characters, unique art style and an incredibly fanatical community of followers.

“We have always had fun developing Pocket God and its many updates, but creating the personalities behind the pygmies and the stories behind them has been one of the most enjoyable aspects of our work,” said Dave Castelnuovo, founder and CEO of Bolt Creative. “The way the Pocket God community has embraced the comic series has been incredible to see and we look forward to continuing to create more quality Pocket God content.”

Pocket God No. 11 – Part two of the ‘A QUEST CALLED TRIBE’ story arc:

  • Sun, the mysterious new female pygmy, has convinced the tribe to help her on her quest to find the rest of her missing tribe mates (more pygmies?!) and save them from the maleficent Newbie. Will this be the issue that gives us even more new pygmy characters? Who are the bubble breathing people? And where has Nooby disappeared to? The action and mystery continue to pile up.

With the addition of app enhancements included in the digital downloads of the comics to assist consumers in locating their nearest comic book retailer, Ape hopes that Pocket God will inspire new readers to discover the exciting world of comics through their local comic book shops.
