Bolt Creative Teams Up with ngmoco to Bring Pocket God to Android and Windows Phone 7

Pygmies Discover New Islands, Ready to Please More Gods

SAN FRANCISCO – December 2, 2010 - Bolt Creative, the development studio behind best-selling iPhone app Pocket God, today announced that everyone’s favorite Pygmies will be available on both Android and Windows Phone 7 devices this holiday season. Partnering with ngmoco, a leading publisher in the mobile games space, Pocket God is the first venture into a platform other than iOS for both companies. Pocket God is available now on Android and will arrive for Windows Phone 7 soon.

“Pocket God has been expanding rapidly since its inception almost two years ago and we’ve always had our eyes on new platforms, to be selected as a launch title for Windows Phone 7 as well as hopping over to Android is something we’re truly happy about,” said Dave Castelnuovo, CEO of Bolt Creative. “Collaborating with ngmoco on these monumental launches is just icing on the cake, their expertise in mobile gaming is unparalleled and their outstanding reputation ensures that these new versions of Pocket God will be the same high quality fans have come to appreciate.”

"We were delighted to work with the Bolt Creative team on bringing their Pocket God IP to Android and Windows 7 Mobile using the gamemaking resources at ngmoco and we're certain Pocket God will continue its success on these new devices" – Simon Jeffery, CPO at ngmoco

What was intended to be a small side project for Dave Castelnuovo and Allan Dye one winter week has turned into one of the biggest franchises on the App Store, with Pocket God becoming a smash hit just months after its release. With over thirty free updates, which have introduced mini-games, new islands to discover, and creative ways to smite Pygmies, Pocket God continues to impress day one fans and new players alike with its irreverent humor and originality.

Pocket God has also spawned its own comic book, a first for any franchise born in the mobile app space, expanding the Pocket God universe by providing a background story for the island and its seemingly immortal inhabitants. Carrying over the same diabolical themes that popularized the original title, Pocket God Comics has found a following of its own and consistently tops the charts with each new issue released.

  • -_____- Anyhoo,
    Which phone is that?
  • Looks like a DroidX
  • You're right. i just didn't notice it all silouhetted like that.
  • So the goal of the game is to be a sadistic deity? :)
  • It's a x in the picture
  • Ugh...I can't stand the NGmoco guys. Those guys (just like zynga) are just developing & publishing games that are direct ripoffs of known larger PC/console titles...then making it seem like they created something original.
  • This is one of my favorite IOS games. So glad its finally made its way to Android. Once we get the love from a few more developers, Android will easily be the best OS.
  • 20MB? That's a huge game
  • Fun for about 10 minutes, and that's it. Uninstalled.
  • is there app2sd with this game?
  • Nope! That 20mb is going right on your phone's memory! I'm waiting to buy till the force closes comments start disappearing and app2sd is add. No way I'm devoting that much memory for that
  • Does *not* install to SD card and can't be moved. Had to uninstall. :\ N1 2.2.1
  • Yup. Installed right to my SD card. Taking a while to get past the splash screen. Lets see if it works. A lot of the comments are saying it doesn't. *fingers crossed* Edit: Works. Just slow to load up.
  • How did u get it on your SD card?
  • You guys said its great. I just bought it. That's how I feel about the early posters here. THEY KNOW STUFF. I won't play it until sat.
  • I installed it, but it just keeps FC on my Droid. I would love to play this game but if it doesn't work by tomorrow afternoon I'm going to have to get my refund... :(
  • for the FC people, a simple phone reboot should do the trick
  • No work on N1 CM6. REBOOT & fixed permissions as well
  • My kids love this game. I'm buying it just to encourage more IOS game developers to port to Android :-)
  • Meh had this game on my iphone. The novelty wears off pretty quicl. The weekly updates in the beginning were pretty exciting.
  • angry birds -check
    pocket god - check
  • I hope they port over godfinger too. :)
  • i just want more gameloft games lets golf 2 is sweet but huge over 300mb on sd and 25mb on the phone even when you move to sd still 12mb
  • If I have an Ipad, can I use my Ipad Pocket God Account to play where I left off on both devices?
  • oooo yipppeee... DOUBLE RAINBOW!!!!
