This isn't a great game.

The game's art is weird. The backgrounds looks very nice, but the 3D models just look flat, bland and out of place when they are joined with the backgrounds. It kind of feels like a low-budget kids cartoon.

The music and voicing is okay, but there are some serious issues with syncing the voicing to the animation at times.

The game itself is fairly short and all of the puzzles seem to be the "run to the other edge of the game area and collect an item" type. There's not much variety to it.

To me it's just a bit boring.

Also, the game crashes. There's a fix the creator identified in the forums which involves renaming a file. That shouldn't be necessary for the player to do in order to play the game.

It's fairly easy and short as I did not need a walkthrough (which I usually do) and finished it in 4 hours. A rarity in point & click games - all the actions you have to take seem logical and not rage-inducing. Great voice acting and soundtrack. The graphics look really outdated - I thought the game was much older than 2010. Could not play it in fullscreen mode as it got all weird and glitchy (I have a Thinkpad P70 with Windows 7). Nonetheless, looking forward to the next instalment. Definitely recommend getting it on sale, as $10 for such a short game doesn't seem like good value, even if I enjoyed it.

The Journey Down oozes with style through its beautiful hand-painted backgrounds and pleasant color palette, excellent soundtrack and voice acting, engaging story, hilarious dialogues and original characters, coherent puzzles and just plain brilliant fun. It reminds me about everything that makes point-and-click adventures one of my long-term favorite genres, without any of the annoyances that plagued it along the years.

The first chapter offers approximately 2 1/2 hours of entertainment, including a few nicely produced cut-scenes, dialogues and gameplay, and is clearly meant to be followed by the second and upcoming third chapters. In many ways this has all the winning characteristics of a good Monkey Island, especially the humor and overall positively carefree vibe, with all the piratey bits replaced by African-inspired culture set in a more modern setting. Kudos to a very creative team! Looking forward to play the rest of the story.

This game is really wonderful with lovable characters, a good story and beautiful music & art. The first chapter is rather short and the puzzles are quite easy but I don't mind because everything else is just that good.

The second chapter is much longer (at least it felt like it) and has some more complicated puzzles. I just can't wait for the third part!!

I highly recommend this game for peeps that are new to the click&point genre - and if you're a c&p nerd like me I still recommend it just for it's coziness.

I like this game! Dialogues full of humor and funny characters. Talking around is the most attracting part while puzzles are just so-so. However, I encountered a game-breaking bug which prevents me from actually fully finish this chapter. Hopefully won't run into any in the second one. ;D

8.7/10 – Journey to the Underworld in This 3-Part Series!

This story follows Bwana, and his trusted side-kick Kito. They operate a dilapidated gas station in a Caribbean Port. Life was pretty relaxed and casual until the day they came across the journal; a book that describes the underworld and various information about their lost father. As orphans he had adopted and raised them and then soon after disappeared without a trace.

The game has some good graphics and follows your typical point and click template. I felt like the production values were on par with major companies if not exceeding in many areas. My favorite part was the voice acting; the characters had soul and some personality that quickly immerses you in the story. This episode was pretty short at just 3 hours; but it was extremely enjoyable and time flew by! This is one of the best kickstarter games I have played without a doubt! If you don't like point and click games this won't change your mind about the genre or anything.

Worth the $9; occasionally you can find this for $3-5 on sale. I will be playing episodes 2-3!

An old school classic adventure with interesting graphic concept.
BUT... honestly... not so funny or interesting as I expected. Still... good.

= So I would like to recommend this game to people who really like to play adventures!

If you are "FPS/RPG" more guy, than you'll maybe find this game as boring.

A goofy yet stylish quality start of a series with a superb soundtrack. The biggest con is that it's excessively short - I'd apparently finished it in less than two hours, stuck on a single puzzle which basically involved using a random item on a random item without any in-game clue. I HAD played it once before, but retained almost no memories of the gameplay - though even with that, I doubt it would've taken me much more than 2 hours overall. Just about every other puzzle in the game is at least vaguely logical if you paid attention and checked everything before, which is definitely a plus. Graphically from great to... hm... and mostly quite stylish, some chuckles here and there... Great soundtrack, good voice-acting (though one character, for some reason, sounds like he's talking through a 2$ microphone, really strange). The lack of body would have me consider a non-recommendation, despite all the obvious positive sides, but together with the excellent Chapter Two, it's a thumbs-up.

This is very much in the vein of traditional point-and-click style games like the Monkey Island series. If you're into the kind of puzzles that you play in games like that (including sometimes frustrating video game logic), you'll find this to be a delightful game. In fact, I think a lot of the puzzles and logical conclusions you have to make to reach solutions in this game are actually much more straightforward (and aha!-inducing) than a lot of the puzzles in traditional point-and-clicks.

There's a lot of fun humor in these games, and a lot of moving back and forth between areas and basking in your own cleverness when you've finally solved a puzzle. The art and music style is Afro-Caribbean as others have pointed out, and apparently many of the character profiles are based on African masks, which is pretty neat. It's also cool to have a video game that features neary all African characters--I mean how often do you see that? If all of this sounds good to you, then I totally recommend getting this game.

Game gives hints on how to solve problems/puzzles (rare, only remember 1 time) in game by main character telling how I don't like that if you dont manage it first. So it's bad design in that way. otherwise nice point and click game.

An excellent although short adventure, with it’s unique style and characters as it’s main selling point. The puzzles are mostly logical and you won’t find much frustration during the 2-3 hours it takes to complete. And as those hours are spent in an humorous noir setting with a fantastic jazz and dub soundtrack they will fly past quick.

Coming late to the game here has it’s advantages as the third and final episode is now funded, in the making and with a probable release during 2016. That makes it three years between the first and the final episode, all individually funded with kickstarters. You can have whatever opinion about releasing a game in such a manner, but in the end it made this game possible, which adventure game fans should be grateful for.

Recommended, if you can hold out for the ending for about a year.

Intro - About
Find the parts you need for your old airplane for someone to help you get out of debt. This point and click adventure, has comedy and wonderful art and puzzles as you make progress. Play as what I can only assume “Tiki” people or as they call it “Afro-Caribbean twist” and make your way around town collecting things you need to use to get farther a long the story rich campaign.

Pros & Cons
++ Pros
+Appealing art style
+Story Rich
+Price (Current $8.99 US)
+Fun
+Comedy

-- Cons
-Cutscene sounds did not fit video
-Short story - 3 hrs average
-Some things you need to do are very random and there is no clue on what to do
-Tedious walking
-Must be a random clicker / Curious Explorer


Personal Opinion
I found this game very charming and appealing. I loved the graphics and the art they decided to use and made for a much different feel to the game compared to intensely, high graphics. This was a very good game to just sit down and relax to and enjoy a good story with some great puzzles. The ending left off at a hanger which clearly shows there is going to be a 2nd chapter (There is right now). The puzzles were not to difficult though it can be quite a bit tedious running back and forth if you don’t know exactly what you need to do. Most of the time I was walking every where around town about 3 time for one thing trying to find it. I used the guide for about 3 things to help me get back on track.

Final recommendation:
I really did enjoy the game play and the cutscenes did not bother me all that bad due to the shortness. Based on story, graphics, controls, art, difficulty in puzzles and the amount of things to do, I rate this game and good 8/10. This was a game that I didn’t want to walk away from. The story was great and the personalities of the characters made me feel connected. I cant wait to play the second one!

Almost alright, but all the puzzles are either so blatantly simple or nonsensically obtuse that you will spend most of your time searching areas again and again hoping there is something that has now become interactive to solve a puzzle you had figured out in your head screens earlier. The hit and miss quality of voice acting and choppy cutscenes combined didn't impress me much either and broke immersion multiple times throughout the short playtime. It might look a little different, and have decent music, but there are plenty of adventure games from more than a decade ago that have better gameplay.

This is a hidden gem. If you enjoy old-school style point-and-click inventory-based adventure games, you'll enjoy this game. I was a bit unsure, but the unique setting, the charming characters, and the well designed puzzles made this a real treat. There was only one time that I needed to look online for help, and that was just a case where I thought I'd already tried what the solution to the puzzle was. And there was only one truly out there puzzle with that wacky adventure game logic. The rest were mostly sensible and intuitive, with a few light logic puzzles as well. Something else I really liked about this game is that some items are reused in multiple puzzles, rather than everything being one-and-done. Things that would be considered useful tools are in fact, useful in many situations. Outside of that, the art style and music are both fantastic as well. Be advised, it does end on a cliffhanger, and you'll certainly want to proceed immediately to Chapter Two, which is even better than the first chapter.

The Journey Down - Chapter One 3/5: Stylizace dá vzpomenout na Grim Fandango (jakkoli tam šlo o inspiraci mexickým folklorem zatímco zde africkým) a styl, průběh, dialogy i humor zase na novější Monkey Islandy. Výtečná stylizace je navíc podpořena skvělým dabingem i hudební složkou. Problém není ani v samotném adventuření; je to sice bez zádrhelů, ale zábavné. Problém je čistě a jen délka. Nemám nic proti krátkým hrám, pokud má nastavená délka opodstatnění. Zde nemá; je to na necelé dvě hodiny a to ještě autoři natahují herní čas tím, že když někde něco seberete, tak vás čeká cesta napříč mnoha obrazovkami, abyste to použili a následně s výsledkem zase zpět přes všechny ty obrazovky na původní místo. Navíc to nikam nevede, nic se neuzavře... Takto to působí dojmem zpoplatněného dema na povedenou adventuru. Je to prostě prolog a nikoli první kapitola příběhu.

Hra pôsobí pohodovo, pri jej hraní máme pocit že sa čas zastavil a my sme v inom svete.

Hlavná postava mi propomína Boba Marleyho.
Taktiež obsahuje mnoho vtipou ktoré na vás sype už od začiatku hry,
Ku príkladu máme pokazené lietadlo v ktorom chceme odviezť slečnu na nejaké miesto a povieme jej nech sa posadí a zachvilu odlietame avšak von nám náš kolega vytkne že to lietadlo ani nemá motory.

Ako pohodovú oddychovku odporúčam :)

Pěkná a humorná adventura ve stylu regé. Příjemná hudba regé celkově působí i hra pohodově. Dabing postav je slušný :) Dobře se hraje, není nutnost nikde dlouho přemýšlet, většinou jsou lolgické úkoly jednoduché, nic težkého. Někdy jsem zbytečně hledal co a jak udělat a výsledek byl úplně jednoduchý. Není potřeba ani zkoušet všechno na všechno, většinou co najdete v zápětí někde použijete. Škoda, že není čeština, ale i s mojí špatnou angličtinou jsem hru dohrát celkem rychle. Mohu doporučit, samozřejmně žádný zázrak nečekejte. Spíše přijemná humorná oddechovka s humornými dialogy :) A škoda, že není v jedné ceně i CHAPTER TWO. Takhle to chce počkat na akci jako jsem to koupil já za lepší peníz a určitě koupit dohromady i s CHAPTER TWO. Jinak je to opravdu kraťoučké :)

Docela zábavná adventura s příjemnou grafickou stylizací. Úkoly se dají logicky odvodit a člověk tak nemusí zkoušet všechno na všechno (což je něco co opravdu nemám rád a proto mě potěšilo že tady jsem takové situace nenarazil). Bohužel je hra opravdu krátká, dohrál jsem ji asi za 2 a půl hodiny. Ale je to první díl trilogie, takže dohromady to snad bude lepší. A navíc jsem hru dostal zdarma v nějaké giveaway akci, takže poměr zábava / cena je pro mě skvělý, ale koupit ji za 6€, asi byl trochu zklamaný. Další díly pořídím až budou v akci tak za 3 - 4 €, což mi vzhledem k malé délce hry přijde jako adekvátní cena.

Quite good, and even better now with the reduced price. I love the graphics, I love the music, and the gameplay is decent classic adventure fair. And the story is quite good, but really seemed to only give you a hint at what you will discover in episode 2.

This title really surprised me with how well it was made. I came in having no expectations. I had bought the game as part of a bundle on indiegala, and was only really going to try it out while waiting for another (and much larger in size) game to download, and was frankly blown away right from the start.

You start off in dire straights with your electricity having been shut off because you hadn't paid your bills for a while. This means you can't make any money because the pump in your gas station that you own an operate relies on the power to run. However with some cheeky DYI smarts, you're soon back to normal... If normal means no customers, which... it does.

Luckily as fate would have it a customer comes by, however she's not looking for a fill up, but rather a strange old book. Bwana (the main character) sees an opportunity to make a buck, and before long we're deep into the story trying to fix up an old plane to finally pay the bills, so that things can return to normality of the easy living life Bwana has been living alongside his brother at the docks.

The puzzles you come across are fairly straight forward, and no regular adventure gamer should feel challenged by this, however that's totally acceptable since it's clear that the game is really telling a good story rather than stopping you with frustrating puzzles that has you stuck for hours on end. The main character even "cheats" while doing a puzzle proclaiming he hates puzzles himself.

The game oozes with charm, and I was unable to put it down until I had finished it. It took me around 2-2½ hours to finish, but what an absolute joy it was. The animations were well done, and the voice overs were very professionally made. One of the best things about the game though I think was the music. It just heightened the experience of the game to a level it would not have been at had they not had such a talented musician in their team.

Pros/Cons:

+ Voice overs are professional and fit the game
+ Music has a nice vibe to them and is filled with passion
+ Story seems interesting
+ Graphics are well done and the animations are fluid and oftentimes funny
+ The game just oozes charm and is hard not to like

- Puzzles were oftentimes a little too easy

I recommend this one to anyone wanting a nice and easy adventure game. I'm off to play the next chapter, which I hope will provide the same level of quality.

This was a nice game to play, some really good humour and an interesting storyline - The art style and such are reminiscent of Grim Fandango but with a different cultural background. The voice acting is fairly good, although its thrown off a bit by the poor lip synching.

Pros:
Good humour reminiscent of Lucasarts adventure games
Interesting characters and art style
Gorgeous and atmospheric scenery
Fairly intriguing story line - looking forward to part two
Fantastic soundtrack

Cons:
Puzzles are very easy for experienced point n clickers
Incredibly short for the cost - short even for an episode
Some half-baked animation work

Good point and click. Reminds me of Grim Fandango for some reason.
