Inspired by my own family, the pervasive themes of support, friendship and cooperation are central to the gameplay, and I hope that it will give many joyous gaming hours to our fans and new players alike.”

One of the “Nindies” announced coming to the Nintendo eShop this year on Nintendo Direct, Pode is a co-op puzzle exploration game about two unlikely travel companions going on an exploratory adventure within a mysterious and magical mountain.
