'Pode' (ALL) Developer Secures $400K Investment - Screens & Trailer

Pode is a co-op puzzle exploration game about two unlikely travel companions going on an exploratory adventure within a mysterious and magical mountain.

Pode is the story of 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 breathe life into an ancient sleeping world and explore the ruins of a long lost civilization with their unique talents and abilities. Only by helping each other can these unlikely adventure companions solve the ancient puzzles that open the secret passageways up the caverns of Mount Fjellheim.

Pode is a co-op puzzle exploration game built around the themes of friendship and cooperation, with a strong emphasis on positive actions, relaxing atmosphere and beautiful art inspired by Norwegian culture.


Norway based indie developer Henchman & Goon announced that Altered Ventures, a Venture Capital fund based in Silicon Valley, has invested over $400,000 in their upcoming game, Pode. This is the first time a Norwegian game studio has received Altered Ventures funding for a project, and Pode has already received accolades, including a People’s Choice Award Nominee for Game Connection in 2018.

"For us it was important to find a partner that had experience from the games industry, with the same passion for games that we have, and who could also contribute valuable feedback in terms of insight, a strong network and vision," says Game Director and CEO, Yngvill Hopen. "It means the world to us to have an investment partner that believes in us so much at this stage in the production, allowing us to focus more on design and development as we gear up for the launch. Having a great partner like Altered Ventures during these last stages of production is absolutely essential.”

"Altered Ventures’ core team have collectively over 20 years of experience making, producing and publishing video games, and we recognized the potential in Pode immediately,” said Mario Valle-Reyes, Co-Founder and Managing Partner of Altered Ventures. “We are thrilled and honored to work with Henchman & Goon, helping to fund a great game that is already proving to be a beloved new IP.”
