The Messenger (no spoils pls)

Postby Truhan » 2 months ago

This game looks friggin amazing. I'd advise against looking at the Steam page description, because it spoils one of the twists in the game. What you need to know is it's a Ninja Gaiden-like action-platformer with neato upgrades like a fuckin' grappling hook. You can pseudo-double jump by attacking enemies or lanterns to refresh your jump. Oh, and there's a gimmick where you switch between 8-bit and 16-bit graphics during levels. The writing is great

the grappling hook is actually called the rope dart, but the character that gives it to you says "you're just gonna call it a grappling hook anyways", for example

and there are plenty of twists to keep you hooked. It's on sale for $14 on Steam right nyaa~, but it's also on Switch. If anyone here's played it, please sell me on it even more, because I suck at platformers, but this really does seem special from all I've heard and read about it. Shit, it has a 95% positive rating in Steam with over 1k reviews, with favorable comparisons to Celeste, Hollow Knight, and Shovel Knight. I just need one last push to convince me to go for it.

Got it on Switch, I think I 100%ed it but there might be thing or two I missed. It's really freaking good and going by a not-so-subtle placeholder/teaser thing at a later point in the game there's apparently even more content on the way, but as an expansion -- the game feels like a complete package already.

If I have one complaint it's that I died like 260+ times over the course of my 35-hour playthrough and while the death system isn't too punishing part of it did get annoying after a while, but even then I eventually tuned it out.
I am fairly involved in A2XT's development as a content creator, wiki contributor and programmer, but I am not the project lead nor am I responsible for half the things people keep attributing to me lol

I dunno if they added it for Switch, but I know PC has new game + which bumps up the difficulty every time you complete it. Apparently, the devs' best was NG+7.

I think I remember seeing something about that when I beat the game. Personally I'm not super big on NG+ most of the time so I'm pretty much done with the game until the new content arrives, but it's a nice bonus for anyone who is into that stuff.
