The 2018 Game Awards Best Debut Indie Game, The Messenger, will be breaking the barriers of time and space at EGX 2019 at the London Excel. Ninjas in training will be able to go hands on with the new Picnic Panic DLC, as well as meet the developers!

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 humour.

Picnic Panic is a FREE sun-soaked expansion to the critically acclaimed retro platformer The Messenger in which the beloved characters from the original game tag along on a trip to Voodkin Island. Explore three refreshingly new levels – each culminating in unique and inventive boss fights.

AT EGX there will be 4 stations to play The Messenger and players will be able to choose between the original demo or the Picnic Panic expansion demo (experienced players).
