Pocket God Journey to Uranus: Ep 6 - Decapithon

Hey Guys,

Our new update for PGU has just hit. just in time for Halloween.

Once again, this is our biggest update yet, toward the end of building it, I seriously questioned why we didn't just turn this into a stand alone app. I can't even call it a mini game, it's a full on game and I see a lot of apps on that are not nearly as solid as this one.

so you play a pygmy with an axe that gets teleported to the Zombie Dimension (which looks an awful lot like the the zombie island). You have to try and make your way through the level by cutting the heads off all the zombies you come across. Each zombie takes a different number of hits to decapitate but luckily their heads show their damage level. at first you just see a cut on the front of their heads but eventually you start to see their exposed brain and with the sides of their split head hanging down like a banana peel.

There are 4 different types of Zombies,

Pygmy Zombie, who rips off his arm and throws it at you like a boomerang.

Vampire Bat, who attacks you with a sonic scream.

The Moon Witch, who uses acid spit. Keep an eye out for her in the comic.

Big Booga, who alternately spits his teeth at you machine gun style or summons a magic rain of death consisting of skulls and bones.

We also have health power-up grave stones and hidden ghost extra life power-ups.

There are 8 levels and it's pretty tough. I can get through all 8 levels with 3 lives, but a lot of people have trouble getting past level 3. but you just need to practice jumping around the objects the zombies throw at you. It's really fun once you get the hang of maneuvering around quickly.

For this game we built some new tools to help us do these kinds of games easily. We are using it for our next app and evolving it even more. so hopefully this will open the doors for new stuff coming in the future.

oh yea, and I guess we use blood in this update. It won't happen often but we thought it would be ok because it's just zombie blood..

Just noticed PGU just went up in price to $1.99. It had been sitting at $0.99 for awhile. I wonder if that's an indication that maybe an update is finally on the way. It doesn't seem like they've played too many pricing games in the past so I was thinking there might be some meaning to the price change.

Hey, last night I changed the price but we are not doing any new content updates. there will be an update at the end of the year where we take out open feint but we are not planning on adding new content to PGU.

The price change is because PGU is really low in the ranks and we need to figure out how to make more revenue out of the game while we try to finish the runs. It's basically an experiment.

Although we do think that PGU has some pretty awesome mini games. it might not have as much content as PG but PG has been worked on for 4 years straight but we do think that PGU still more content than most other apps.

The problem is that we are finally hitting that point where we need to start focusing on new apps instead of tons of updates because our apps are not as high in the ranking as they used to be. If we were still in the top 50 with both apps we would be able to do updates for a long time to come.

I completely understand that you need to put your time, effort and resources into apps that are going to make you money. Maybe you should experiment with a new PGU content update that is an IAP. Maybe your existing user base is loyal enough to buy it. I know I would (for my kids who love PGU.)

Update?

10/31/13 and still not even a rumor of an update, seriously?
This is really disappointing, I thought it would be a great game, how do you expect to make a new good game, if you believe that it is ok to say that you basically don't care about all your costumers that have already bought a game in which you said you would launch new updates, because you need to make a new app to be "popular" in the top-ranking and save your time... It's just stupid, if you can't improve this game, that by the way isn't that original, it's basically pocket god, I'm sure you will never be able to create a game that people will like, besides the people that bought PGU, believe me, will never buy a new game of you, because you have already disappointed them, like me.

I can't believe your comments to the other people , it's like if you literally just didn't care about them...

Journey to Uranus is finished, there are no more updates coming out for it.

There are more than 6 solid games in pgu that are equivalent to stand-alone games on their own. Maybe it doesnt match pocket god, but there is more content in pgu than in most other apps for the same price.

Why did you guys have stopped adding things to PGU?

You should have added basics things like fire ants, temperature, dodo bird, fishing, ooga jump, the runs, underwater areas, etc. and if you have added these things and had raised its price to 4 USD, then also a huge amount of your customers have had bought it!

So please add more things to this game, Please I beg You!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Hey if you guys don't want to update PG JTU, then make PG iPad compatible!
Your sales will go above MT. Everest if you do this and change it's price to 1.99 USD.

This was my suggestion to you please think at this topic, please!
Keep making great apps!

Best wishes from
