Trivia[edit | edit source]

  • Rainbowdragoneyes used Famitracker (8-bit) and Deflemask (16-bit) to create the music for The Messenger.[1]
  • There is a "HEY!" sound effect used in several of the music tracks: Bamboo Creek 16-bit, Howling Grotto 8-bit/16-bit, Elemental Skylands 8-bit/16-bit, and Manfred the Sky Serpent 16-bit. This is a sound sample that Rainbowdragoneyes created by having the entire dev team yell "HEY" into the phone at once.[2]
  • Rainbowdragoneyes is the one who says "Picnic Panic" during the song, "Picnic Panic Theme."[3]
  • "Staff Roll (End Credits)" employs leitmotifs from several different area songs in the game.[4]
  • There is a musical reference to "Master Ov Time" in the Cloud Ruins music track.[5]
  • Rainbowdragoneyes made a "Flowers of Antimony (remix)" music track, which was introduced to the video game, Just Shapes & Beats, with the "Just Shovels & Knights" update. The remix contains a musical reference to the Glacial Peak music track, which occurs around the same time a winged creature resembling Quarble shows up.[6]
