TJD: Chapter Two Soundtrack available now!

The official "The Journey Down: Chapter Two" soundtrack has now finally been released on bandcamp, with a whoopin' 100% of the revenue going to brain tumor charities and to fund young musician awards in the memory of the soundtrack's awesome composer, Simon D'Souza.

If you're into moody and film-noirish big band jazz, you don't wanna miss out. Besides, could there possibly be a better cause? I doubt it.

"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."

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

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.

i love this classic afrocentric, caribbean tale (noire) of easy-going, hard luck underdogs.

line per line, it's almost identical to the original 2D freeware with added puzzles, voice and music tracks.

skygoblin does a great job preserving the flavor of the original.

chapter 2 has been out for a couple of weeks now so i'm not gonna tell you squat about the plot, you'll just hafta see for yourself.

one love!

The Journey Down is another adventure game. While there are plenty of these floating around now, and I doubt this one is anywhere close to the top(Deponia probably sits comfortably on that throne), that doesn't mean this one is bad, or not worth playing. I found it to be very amusing, well written, well voiced, and having awkward enough puzzle solutions to be worthy of its genre title. Its only real detriment is itself, and by that I mean it's too short. You won't solve very many puzzles in this game only to be surprised that it's over without much having happened in the plot. This game is only the first in a series of planned episodes, as implied by the title, but I still find myself wishing more happened in this one. I don't know the details behind its development and am not curious enough to dig them out, but I assume the creators did what they could. That said, you should enjoy what you have, support the on going development, and look forward to future episodes.

I recommend this game, and will be looking forward to the rest of it. The wacky adventures of "Bwana" must go on.

I had much fun with this game! I like the humour and art style even if the soulless black eyes creep me out bit. Game is maybe too expensive comparing to how short it is. If second one is as short then I will wait until it is in sale before buying. I look forward to see how story continues in that!

Music is great. And that's it.
Game wants to be funny, but, unfortunately, it isn't.
I'm big fan of point and click adventures, but this is awful.
Just skip it (I got it on sale for less than 1$, and I still regret wasted time)

The Journey Down: Chapter One is a good looking, but terrible to play point and click adventure. The game's artstyle is appealing and all the backgrounds and characters are well done, but thats about all the praise this game will get. The story itself is bland and the delivery is atrocious, the "puzzles" are so easy and unchallenging a monkey could probably do it. Additionally some of the characters are extremely annoying as they try to play it off as funny (I am not even sure if this game has a target audience based on its subject matter). Now given the above I'd almost be willing to count this as a good feature, the game is also insanely short, you can clear it in literally a couple hours. I do not recommend this game to anyone, there are good point and click adventures out there that offer challenge or a good story, this has neither of the two essential elements.

With all the positive reviews for this game floating around I feel I need to add my input. In short, if you enjoy P&C Puzzle games, do not buy this game.

It's quite difficult to find an aspect of it I like- The puzzles were exceptionally poor, lacking in any kind of imagination or ingenuity (Think generic charity shop puzzle-book puzzles and you won't be far off). Where good Point and Click puzzle games move coherently from one puzzle to the next using logical plot points, it feels that the developers simply add arbitrary problems to form a chain of bad puzzles until it is long and bulked out enough to be called a game. This makes the game more of a chore than an enjoyable experience, as there is little in the way of progression or logic. Also, if you don't do the right action in a given time, the main character will explicitly blurt out the solution, cutting all satisfaction from the puzzle-solving experience.
The characters were so one-dimensional it was laughable. Worse, some characters arbitrarily changed their personalities, sometimes hating the main character for no good reason, then in the next moment being overly nice with no explanation. Further, the main character was fundamentally unlikeable (This was not helped by the emotionless mask-like faces the characters have). I also thought the voice acting wasn't up to scratch- is it just me, or does Bwana dip in and out of his accent?
The animation was quite poor, and at times environments looked very rushed and unfinished. The lip-sync was dreadful, and ruined any immersion the cut-scenes might provide.
I also found the game to be completely humourless. The jokes fell so flat it was more of a cringe-worthy experience than a funny one. The only way to get through this game was to laugh at it rather than with.

It was very sad to play this game after seeing comments likening this to greats such as Grim Fandango or Monkey Island (two of my favourite games). It is a husk of a puzzle game, and was genuinely the worst P&C puzzler I have ever played.

This is a real eye-opener game. Unique design concept deep heart and it made ​​a very good detail. Plot is entirely inferior to Hollywood blockbusters. Role model is very fine, making good interface. So what? You worth trying to play!

GMG送的掛卡遊戲,這遊戲的畫風確實很不錯
有種3D動畫.<僵屍新娘>的感覺
裏面男主人公的聲音別提多搓了.
然後那種美式英語的發音.聽的我耳朵都懷孕了..
乾脆自創美國語得了.開篇在加油站兩個逗比在玩電源開關..
我勒個去..你關了下電源..對岸整個城市都停電了..這麼屌你家裡人知道麼.
後面跟美人共度小黑屋.所謂的美人?如花都比她漂亮..那個臉啊...
坑坑疙瘩一堆..簡直就是香蕉皮上的疙瘩.
別叫我MISS.叫我linda..
然後超現實的事情發生了...梯子爛了..中間用於踩踏的棍子沒了..
於是代筆男主要找替代品修梯子...結果..!!! 居然用 就是那種餅乾條替代..修好了梯子?!!
我勒個去..(吾輩英語渣.反正那是吃的.我看代筆男主放嘴裏咬了.還說好吃喜歡什麼之類的話.不查翻譯了.
這還不算什麼,,關鍵的是!
都快掛了.2個小時才掉完3張卡...我也是醉了~

The first chapter of The Journey Down has to go down as one of the happiest point-and-click adventures I've ever played. The game has some really decent voice acting for a small developer and sets a joyful, happy-go-lucky mood. Graphics are well done and the character models are...well...original. The puzzles aren't too tough, but they have thrown in a couple of tricky ones. The story is interesting enough to make me want to play the next chapter.

First of all, I must say this is a truly amazing and beautiful game. Lately, I have been playing loads of horror and FPS games like TF2, NMRiH, Half Life 2, EP1 and EP2 etc.. And, To be honest, I was getting tired of playing them. But when I played this game, It Re-Indulged me into the world of gaming, As in this game, You don't have to go along and start killing people/NPCs for no apparent reason. It gave me a good break from all the shooting and made me start to think on how to complete levels, Rather than thinking about how much Life or Ammo I have left. The story is great as well, With alot of suspense, Which makes it even better. I'm just glad I found out about this game right after the release of Chapter 2, Or I would have been left in the suspense like everybody else who bought the game as soon as it was released.
So Overall, This is a really good game and I highly recommend it to any puzzle lover or a person who has been playing too much FPS lately...

Simple and enjoyable puzzle solving game with great voice acting and, of course, some reggae background music!

Character design is unique. Every person's face looks like some tribal village mask. And it fits well with the overall theme of the game.

Puzzle solving is relatively easy and the game's duration is quite short. But naah, it's the unique game experience is what matters.

Take a break. Play this kind of game once in awhile. Totally worth your money!

As creepy as the characters look, this felt like playing a game made for kids under 10.
Sure the characters' accents are funny and all, but the gameplay is very slow and the announced "brain-teasing" isn't there at all unless you consider finding sticks for the ladder in the only cupboard of the room you're stuck in difficult.
The acting is really good, but unless your kid is a big fan of creepy looking funny guys with jamaican accents, you're not going to want this.
