Sabotage Studio and Devolver Digital released The Messenger this week, and while the team is busy showcasing the game on Pax West, we mortals can watch both the short film Shinobi No Kikan and documentary from the publisher’s Behind the Schemes series.
Starting with a real life ninja fighting against demons and following with a taste of gameplay, The Messenger’s short film is a mandatory piece of content for both people who are already playing the game, going for a second run or watching everything from afar like me (too many games).
In case you haven’t heard about Behind the Schemes yet, it’s a series of short documentaries by Devolver Digital, featuring interviews and a visit to each studio’s HQ everywhere in the world. From Spain to Canada, there are already 19 videos over there.
But today, it’s all about Sabotage’s studio and how they came up with the idea of mixing 8-bit and 16-bit eras in the same game.
