Henchman & Goon, developers of co-op exploration title Pode has announced that their game is available to pre-order now ahead of launch. In a rather cute setting, a fallen star, and a rock join one another to return the star to the sky, they’ll form a friendship and well…it’s just a really sweet story.
Along the way, the two will face puzzles that will require them to use their individual abilities to overcome them. Pode will be a side-scrolling platformer and the gameplay we saw from a teaser trailer back in May seems to show a simple teamwork system. An adorable cinematic is also featured in that video introducing the beginning of the adventure.
In a press release Yngvill Hopen, the 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 is among the twelve Nindies that are due to arrive to the Nintendo eShop this year and has Austin Wintory composing the music of the game.
Pode will launch onto Nintendo Switch on June 21st, 2018.
