"Inventory puzzles, minor theft, and mischief will make any adventure game fan feel right at home, while the use of macabre masks and black African themes and characters make it feel fresh."
8/10 – Destructoid

"A short but vibrant indie adventure that far exceeds the quality of many full-blown retail games."
4/5 – Adventure Gamers

"All in all, The Journey Down is a fine bit of point and clickery, with a good script, solid puzzles and a fantastic sense of style."

Overall, this is a solid P&C Adventure game, with reasonably logical puzzles once you immerse, and no Guide-Dang-It solutions- it's possible to work out all the solutions given the information available in the game. That said, there was at least one puzzle that refused several plausible solutions in favor of what seems to me to be a less-plausible (though more amusing) one, and several in which I knew the concept of the solution, but there wasn't much of an indication about how to actually _do_ that. Plus the traditional complex "solve it because it's there" puzzle that turns out to massively help your protagonist progress in a somewhat illogical way, but that's so common in the genre that it might actually be considered a lack if it weren't present. :-J There is the usual complete refusal by the protagonist to clean up after themselves- I wish more of these games would let us give people their stuff _back_ once it's not needed any more. Hopefully, there will be uses for the items still in Bwana's pockets at the end of the chapter, instead of the traditional "lost everything during the cutscene" trope.

The plot was at once engaging and somewhat frustrating- this reads more as a prologue than a first chapter to me- while there is a lot implied, I don't think any of the questions raised are actually resolved in the course of this game, which makes it feel like more of a very long demo than a short game that can stand on its own. I have the impression that purchasers of this game will not receive Chapter Two into the bargain, which means I just paid for an interactive teaser for the longer saga. Well played in the short term, but I don't know how long players will be okay with that tactic, whether it was intentional or not. Personally, I will probably get the next chapter if it's not too expensive, but if there's not some resolution of at least _some_ questions, I will just wait for spoiler-full walkthroughs to get my fix of the plotline thereafter. On the other hand, I will be looking for the rest of the story, as this has some very cool plot elements, and definitely a non-carbon-copy setting.

The plot, sadly, comes off (at least with the little you see here) as centering on a fairly standard Evil Conspiracy to keep the rich bad guy up and the little guy down. I could be more specific, but that much you figure out pretty much in the first cutscene. If I refined it further, there would be actual spoilers involved. Given some of the references, culturally this reads to me as more Jamaican than Black African, but the character design definitely reminds me of Black African masks, nicely rendered, so maybe it's a mixture. Either way, it's fun and attractively rendered.

Overall, I would recommend this if you like the price, but be aware that you are very much getting the beginning of something, not a complete episode in a series. It's a good start, but you won't leave with any real sense of having made much headway into the real story.

A true classic style point & click! The game isn't long (well, depending on your skill and experience with simiar games), but its amazing how much they managed to put into this game. The atmosphere is just fantastic. You get really immersed in this universe with the help of the great voice acting, smooth graphics and one of my favorite soundtracks.

Seriously tho. Its been a while since i played and completed this game, but Simon D' Souza's soundtrack is still stuck in my head. I cannot wait for chapter 2! Buy this! now!

Beautiful graphics, fun dialog, good story. Gameplay is pretty straight forward. I liked to play this game a lot. Only downside is that it is short. I played through it in a couple of hours. However for the small price I think that is to be expected.
If you are into really hard puzzles, this is not for you. But if you like an interactive story with some not too hard puzzles, I would not hesitate to recommend this game.

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
