DIGITAL COMICS: Pocket Gods move forward with Gem Cell Research
Ape Entertainment and Bolt Creative announced today that Pocket God Comics issue No. 16 is now available on the App Store for iPhone, iPad and iPod
touch. In part two of “Gem Cell Research,” the girls’ gem is still in disrepair and the only way to fix it is with a laser.
The only way to get the laser is to catch the Laser-Shark, but is that really such a good idea? Are they going to need a bigger raft, or just end up as shark-bait? Nevermind that… who is Linsee cuddling up with? And how is Nooby’s new see-weed buddy doing? All these questions and more are answered in this Sharktastic Laserific issue.
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. 16 is now available with more Fan Art, and ‘Dev-Corner’ profiles another member of the Pocket God crew, Thomas Dye. There is also a new feature: “Chillin’ with a Villain” as well as an announcement about the first competition in the official OLYMPYGS competition.
Exclusive re-mastered version of the first Pocket God animated short

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.
