About

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 players expectations as a core game design ingredient, The Messenger is first presented as an 8-bit action platformer with a simple story, that unravels into an epic time traveling tale, eventually revealing itself as a 16-bit Metroidvania game packed with replay value and deadpan humor.

  • Legit 8-bit and 16-bit art and music reminiscent of your favorite NES and SNES games.

  • Catchy soundtrack by renowned chiptune composer Rainbowdragoneyes, made in Famitracker.
  • Character upgrades, new abilities, hidden levels and story arcs to discover.
