ngmoco drops Pocket God onto Android

ngmoco:) today announced the first game they will be publishing on Android and although we were slightly off in our prediction as to what that game would be (we though it would be We Rule), it is still a pretty big title. Pocket God, developed by Bolt Creative, is a very popular game for iOS and it has now made the trip to Android.

Pocket God is so popular that it actually has it’s own comic book and toy line. The point of the game, however, is to be a great god, or a bad god. It’s up to you! You have control over a remote island and the natives that live there and it is your job to guide them. Should you feel like being bad, you can do whatever you want to them.

“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.”

There is a ton of stuff to do in Pocket God including mini-games to play, share with friends through social networks, find secrets and more. For iOS, Pocket God has in-game items you can purchase as well so you can expect that at some point as well in the Android version. You can pick Pocket God up off the Android Market for $0.99 right now. Feel free to check out the full press release below:

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.
