God on Facebook Launches Episode VI: Kiss Your Ants Goodbye
New Fire Ant Animal Power Introduced, Easter-themed Challenges Added
In some countries, ants are a delicacy. In this world though, Pygmy is the most savory dish on the menu. At least for ants they are! Frima Studio, Canada’s leading independent game developer, announced today in conjunction with Bolt Creative, a San Francisco-based developer of original mobile applications and games, that the Pygmies of Pocket God on Facebook are having a bit of a fire ant problem in Episode VI: Kiss Your Ants Goodbye. The latest expansion for the Pocket God world introduces an all new animal power, a horde of ravenous fire ants, features a new Easter-themed challenge where players will battle the legendary Chocoro, and gives the ability to send friends an Easter treat.
Since its debut in December 2010, the Facebook version of Pocket God has grown exponentially and is attracting more players every month. More than 55 million loyal, unquestioning Pygmies have met their demise over that time—that’s approximately the same amount of USD spent on Super Bowl food each year. Another two and a half million sacrifices can be attributed to friends on Facebook sacrificing other friends in a host of brutal and irreverent ways, including electrocution, shark attack, venus fly traps, tornados, tar pits, and more! Impairing means caring, right?
