GDC 2018: A Quick Look at ‘The Messenger’ on the Nintendo Switch

The game everyone seems to be talking about at GDC is The Messenger, a Switch platformer that loads of folks on Twitter keep comparing to games like Shovel Knight, Owlboy, and others. (Which is very good company to be in.) We got a quick look at it, and the way they game blends Metroidvania style equipment unlocking and swapping back and forth between both 8 bit and 16 bit graphics as a game mechanic has me over the moon for The Messenger.

The Messenger is going to be released both on the PC and on Switch. While the date is TBA, I hope it’s soon as having just beat Shovel Knight on Train Jam coming in for GDC, I need more games like this in my life.
