Pode gets Switch release date

New Nindie exploration game with heavy emphasis on friendship and cooperation.

Pode is the story of a little rock helping a fallen star find its way home. As they travel through the insides of a mysterious and magical mountain, Bulder and Glo breathe life into an ancient sleeping world and explore the ruins of a long lost civilization with their unique talents and abilities. Only by helping each other can these unlikely adventure companions solve the ancient puzzles that open the secret passageways up the caverns of Mount Fjellheim.

Pode is a co-op puzzle exploration game about two unlikely travel companions going on an exploratory adventure within a mysterious and magical mountain. Through their unique individual talents they reveal a magical world by working together to solve the puzzles. Pode is visually inspired by Norwegian art and culture resulting in a stunning exploration game.

The game is one of 12 “Nindies” announced coming to Switch eShop this year. Backed by Nintendo, Henchman & Goon has already participated in five trade shows over the last two months receiving positive enthusiasm from press and the public. A few weeks ago the developer announced working with the world-renowned Grammy award winner Austin Wintory to compose the musical track.

Yngvill Hopen, Game Director and CEO at Henchman & Goon said:

“Pode has already attracted quite a following, so we want to give our fans the chance to purchase it early. We’ve received a lot of positive feedback from the community and great support from Nintendo, so we are anticipating a great launch in a couple of weeks.”

Pode won the development award for the Best Casual Game and was selected as a nominee for the People’s Choice Awards as well as for the Best Quality of Art in GameConnection 2018.  The game is set to release for Switch on the 21st of June, and is available to pre-order now.
