Today, independent developer Henchman & Goon announced that its co=op exploration game Pode will be available on the Nintendo Switch on June 21, with pre-orders opening up soon. The game will task players with using the powers of a rock and fallen star in order to explore a mysterious world.
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.
“Pode has already attracted quite a following, so we want to give our fans the chance to purchase it early”, said Yngvill Hopen, Game Director and CEO at Henchman & Goon. “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 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 musical track for Pode.
