Hamburglar says:

Nice looking sandwich there.

Rene Ritchie says:

Added a ton of screen shots!

etc says:

Looks like a fun game. Can't wait to try it out!

Jin Lim says:

This game seems interesting. I like the "plus" feature, which allows you to compete with friends. Social networking games are huge (ie facebook) and i'm glad ngmoco is really pushing for this. I hope its free for us too...

Jenny says:

This game has taken over my afternoons. I have an unnatural attachment to these needy hippies and am constantly checking in on them. So far the gameplay is quite engaging and the design and animations are easy on the eyes.
Very fun. Glad I'm Canadian so I can play it. (Well, I'm glad I'm Canadian for all kinds of reasons. coughcoughuniversalhealthcarecough Seriously American, get on that.)

Daniela says:

Sad that its only free in Canada.

dloveprod says:

It looks interesting, I'll check it out when it comes to the U.S.

lagmefragme says:

pocketgod with social networking? Looks fun tho.

lagmefragme says:

Actually... pocketgod on steriods...

P2hero says:

Dose any one know when it going to hit the us ????

David says:

Looks very interesting and immersive (from what I could tell, when it was in focus)but I find social gaming to have excrutiating down times.

GrandmaBetty says:

Looks fun. The power of God in your little finger!

brandonc14 says:

when is this game going to get to the US. I can't wait to spend all my class time playing it.

BoGuS says:

I would have already tried this out with my "Canadian" account but I've been left with a bad taste in my mouth after being unable to complete the tutorial in 'We Rule.'
Thanks for the footage though. If my girlfriend sees this, I don't think I'll have a choice but to download it.

Michael says:

Looks like a great game to compete with some of the other game out ther.

jhoffmeyer says:

Looks good! I can't wait for it to hit the US store.

LonerATO says:

I will not pay for any of the extra stuff, but man does this game look awesome. This mini Black and White cant reach the US app store fast enought

ken says:

this game is really fun. downloaded it with my canadian store id.

Rayman2170 says:

Hope they do lots of updates to add more and more features like pocket god

RRobinson4633 says:

I like this game. Seems really fun.

AndyLu says:

i feel like this game is going to be a hit! great way to get a social networking game like what fb is doing. it would have tons of players competing with one another. i just hope the servers don't get laggy from to many users

Orangensaft says:

Taking concepts and graphic cues from Rolando to produce a unique social networking experience. I like it.

tyrran says:

Ok, I really like this little game. I grew pretty bored of another certain deity-esque game, and this seems to really have a lot more going for it than "throw pygmy. Drown pygmy. Kind of do interesting mini game with pygmy."
Come to the US iTunes store! Stat!

christyxcore says:

I'm really looking forward to trying this game out when it's available in the US. It looks really fun, though I'm not so sure about paying real money for the 'awe' stuff..

Davo says:

I may just have to get this game. Sounds kinda fun

Dyvim says:

So can you really play this without spending money? I don't mind buying apps up front (I own both Rolando games), but dislike the pay-as-you-go "free" app model.

Gamemania says:

Don't just help the planet, smash the planet , too, lol!

sputnik says:

This looks like an interesting game. When does the US get this again?

ninjamattic says:

This looks pretty sweet. US version please?

zeagus says:

Looks like fun, bring to US! Love that people are being more adventurous and really exploring the potential of the platform.

coolkendude says:

This looks fun - I wonder when it'll be available in the US.

v pills says:
