An expansive time-traveling adventure full of thrills, surprises, and humor.
  • Description

    As a demon army besieges his village, a young ninja ventures through a cursed world, to deliver a scroll paramount to his clan's survival.

    Leveraging player expectations as a core design ingredient, The Messenger is first presented as an 8-bit action platformer with a simple story only to turn into an epic time travelling tale, eventually revealing itself as a 16-bit Metroidvania packed with replay value and deadpan humor.

    Features:

    • An epic ninja adventure with challenging gameplay and tight controls.
    • Legit 8-bit and 16-bit art and music reminiscent of your favorite NES and SNES games.
    • Character upgrades, new abilities, hidden levels and story arcs to discover.
    • Challenging and visceral gameplay where mastery is a thing to behold.

    The most amazing retro throwback game since Shovel Knight. I keep a list of games that I consider absolute masterpieces and this game now sits deservingly among them.
