The Messenger is a game that makes no effort to hide who its intended audience is, and its clever combining of two distinct gameplay genres ensures that it casts a rather wide net. Creating both an 8-bit and bit aesthetic is a genius idea and a very meta way for depicting the world in the past and future eras.
