The Messenger, developed by indie studio - Sabotage Studio, is a ninja themed new action platformer with generation-leaping visuals.

In The Messenger, you play as a young ninja tasked with carrying a powerful scroll, upon which his clan’s survival depends, through his cursed world. As he battles the demon army that besieged his village, what appeared to be a simple homage story to 8-bit platformers, slowly evolves into a clever time traveling tale, revealing itself as a 16-bit Metroidvania game packed with deep replay value and deadpan humor. 


Sabotage Studio is an indie studio that specializes in combining retro aesthetics and modern game design. The Messenger is Sabotage’s first game and a love letter to the beloved retro-console games from the late 80s and early 90s. The game is announced to be available for Windows PC and console later this year.
