Independent developer Henchman & Goon has announced that their co-op exploration game, Pode, is set to release on June 21st. The game is available for pre-order now.
In Pode, a rock and a fallen star set out on a mystical journey, using their distinct abilities to solve ancient puzzles, heavily emphasizing the themes of friendship and cooperation.

Pode tells the story of two unlikely travel companions going on an 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 is one of 12 “Nindies” announced as 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.
