Pick up The Messenger for free on the Epic Games Store

‘Be always brave’

After a string of duos, the Epic Games Store is back to giving out a single video game this week, but it’s one worth nabbing. The next time you’re in a classic Ninja Gaiden mood, you’ll be glad The Messenger is only a few clicks away. The retro action-platformer is free on PC until Thursday, November 21.

Aside from an eventual structural shift that can bog down the pacing, for better or worse, The Messenger is what it looks like: old-school precision platforming. It got the Dtoid seal of approval. I know some of you have been on the fence, so consider this an easy, relatively hassle-free in.

Epic’s next free game will be Bad North, an island-hopping Viking defense game.
