The two-disc vinyl soundtrack for The Messenger by Rainbowdragoneyes is now available through Australian outlet Pixelcrib, courtesy of publisher iam8bit.

Starring the "Western Hero" granted the power to travel through time, Sabotage Studio's The Messenger flips between 8-bit and 16-bit stylized landscapes, challenging the player to intense 2D sidescrolling platforming and combat. The Messenger is aided by a winged sidekick named Quarble capable of reviving the hero and the mysterious Shopkeeper granting upgrades including a shuriken ranged attack, a downward-swiping wingsuit strike and underwater dash.

The three-part digital soundtrack album, available through Bandcamp, includes music from the beach party-themed Picnic Panic DLC expansion. Vinyl album art is by Magic: The Gathering illustrator Peter Mohrbacher.

From the product page:
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. What begins as a classic action platformer soon unravels into an expansive time-traveling adventure full of thrills, surprises, and humor.
