During the high of the success of NEScape!, while Jon, Kevin and Kyndal were in Santa Monica, California attending IndieCade!, Jon told Kevin about an idea he had for a cyberpunk adventure game. It was decided that Courier would be the next project the both would tackle.

Development started on January 11, 2022 with the pair working intermittently between other projects. As the game was close to being finished it was decided that instead of releasing it on Kickstarter as they did with NEScape!, they would reach out to various publishers to see what options might be available to them in presenting the game to a larger audience.

A major indie publisher picked up the game with the promise of it being released in 2023, but issues arose with the publisher being unable to get their board to consistently work with the game. After attempting to resolve these issues, Kevin and Jon decided to circle back to their original plan of releasing it on Kickstarter. The Kickstarter went live on January 1, 2024. The game started arriving at people's houses around May 1, 2024.
