About

The game moves between 8-bit and 16-bit art styles, allowing the player to move between the two by going forward or backwards in time. 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. What begins as a classic action platformer soon unravels into an expansive time-traveling adventure full of thrills, surprises, and humor.

The Messenger (2018) reviews and comments

Wonderful bitchip soundtrack that is very catchy. This platformer/side-scrolling metroid game is peppered with humour in a genre that often takes itself too seriously. Gameplay is on point with with polished mechanics and develops a sense of mastery as you find your way through the world. Can be challenging at times, but more accessible than Hollow Knight in terms of difficulty.
This game is pure beauty. I had so much fun while playing it and completed last night, now I don't know what to do. It's not a simple pixel art game, it has so many details, twists, a great story behind. I hope Sabotage and Devolver make a sequel for The Messenger!
