If you were a fan of The Messenger, what sounds better than receiving free DLC called Picnic Panic? Lord Cognito had the pleasure of chatting with Thierry from Sabotage Studio to get some information on the upcoming release. The DLC seems to have taken a tropical turn, will feature three unique bosses, and even has surprises that the developer has yet to announce. Our writer, MJ, gave Picnic Panic a spin to see how the latest iteration of this Metroidvania hit would feel.
