Bergen, Norway - April 3rd, 2020 - Independent developer Henchman & Goon today announced that their co-op puzzler, Pode, is available now on Steam for PC with a celebratory 10% discount from €15.99/$19.99.

“We are excited that today PC players can join our adorable duo on their magical adventure,” said Yngvill Hopen, Game Director and CEO at Henchman & Goon. “Pode explores themes like inclusiveness, friendship, and teamwork as players work together controlling highly contrasting characters to solve puzzles and reinvigorate the environment around them as a team.”

Pode is a co-op puzzle adventure game about two unlikely travel companions - a rock named Bulder, and a fallen star named Glo, going on an exploratory journey within a mysterious and magical mountain. Through unique individual talents the duo revitalize the environment around them by working together to solve mind-bending puzzles. Featuring a musical track composed by the acclaimed Austin Wintory and visually inspired by Norwegian art and culture, Pode is a stunning exploration game that can be played alone or with a friend.

Pode won the development award for Best Casual Game and was selected as a nominee for the People's Choice Awards for Best Quality of Art at GameConnection 2018, and in 2019 won three national awards in Norway for “Best Art”, “Best Audio” and “Best Fun for Everyone” as well as “Best Art” at Nordic Game Awards. But the team is most proud of praise received from Captain Marvel herself, Brie Larsson (see tweet). For more information, visit: www.podegame.com
