Pode, a new video game from indie developer Henchman & Goon, is now available on Nintendo Switch.
A co-op game, Pode takes players on an adventure in which a rock and a fallen star must work together using their distinct abilities to solve ancient puzzles. The game features an art style that was inspired by Norwegian culture and musical composition from Grammy award-nominated composer, Austin Wintory. Henchman & Goon says Pode emphasizes themes of friendship and cooperation as the unlikely traveling companions meander through a mystical world.
"Today is a very special day, and we couldn’t be more proud of how Pode has turned out on the Nintendo Switch,” said Yngvill Hopen, Game Director and CEO at Henchman & Goon. “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.”
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.
