    If you haven’t played Pode yet, it’s about a little rock helping a fallen star find its way home. As they travel through the insides of a mysterious and magical mountain, Bulder and Glo discover an ancient sleeping world. Explore the ruins of a long lost civilization with their unique talents and abilities. Only by helping each other can these adventure companions open the secret passageways up the caverns of Mount Fjellheim.


    Pode, a game built around “the themes of friendship and cooperation, with a strong emphasis on positive actions, relaxing atmosphere and beautiful art”, is inspired by Norwegian culture. For more information about Pode, check out our article here. Furthermore, you can also purchase it digitally on Nintendo Switch now for $24.99 US.
