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

There's some potential here, but the jokes fell flat for me, the protagonist's comments became grating, and as previously noted, the first episode is far too short...

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!

Love it, so much! Beautiful soundtrack, hilaroius dialogues, intriguing narrative, unique characters, good puzzles. It's a graphic adventure game, Monkey Island style. SPOILER: the story doesn't stop here, can't wait to play the next chapters!

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.

I originally got this game for free on IPad. Now when i saw it on sale i decided it would be good to give the devs some of the money they deserved. The game itself has great jazz atmosphere, a neat story and some interesting puzzles.

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.

If you are looking for an adventure where you have to click everything on everything else, this may be your game.

The solution to the first puzzle is use breadsticks as steps of a ladder. Says the walkthrough... I had already uninstalled it.

Certain groups moan about a lack of diversity in gaming, this game is a prime example of how much ♥♥♥♥♥♥♥t these morons spew. This is a great game, well written, fun story and well worth a go.

This is shear old school brilliance. monkey island, grim fandango, sam n max, full throttle, dott.... pioneers freeing imaginations, urging to discard the blinkers of the straight and narrow grind and think. support this game before its too late and they remove all pineal glands at birth and the cowled underlords of walts legacy go fmj and serotonin rasions are suplemented to the masses while their grand masons sip dmt mixers from gold chalisis and genarations of chiped human comodities of function are hurded and not heard. well that and its a really good game! so maybe buy it.. if you want....no pressure....(insert steam/valve joke) ....your choice.

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.

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.

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!

I liked it. I wasn't blown away, but I certainly liked it.
Fun point & click puzzling game, the first of a series. I'm excited to play the sequels.
The game has some nice music, decent voice acting, a great atmosphere and okay graphics.
For an indie studio, the developers have done a great job!

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.

Хороша гра. Дійсно хороша. Більшість негативних відгуків - від "випадкових" гравців, які не є прихильниками жанру, а гру отримали безкоштовно. Сподобався стильний антураж, приємна графіка (не дивлячись на схожість візуального стилю з Grim Fandango Remastered, графічна складова останньої явно програє) та чудовий звуковий супровід. Пазли хоча і занадто прості, але логічні. Не сподобалась примітивна однорівнева діалогова система - NPC "виснажуються" вже після першої репліки.

Висновок - гра варта придбання. Поставив другу частину у вішлист та чекаю на вихід третьої :)

P.S. Окремо про оптимізованість під MacOS: якщо гра відразу після появи головного меню "зависає" - просто перегрузіть Мас та в налаштуваннях гри вимкніть оверлей Стіму. Проблема стара, але розробники явно не мають наміру вирішувати її.

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

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!

I'll start off by saying that this isn't a bad game by any means. But... I can't recommend it.
The first problem is the length. This game is about 2 hours long for the average player. It costs $9. It's a point-and-click adventure with no achievements, so there's no replayability. So... yeah, it's not exactly a lot of bang for your buck.
The second problem is the visual design and animation, especially the latter. The backgrounds look good, they're all 2D hand-drawn kind of stuff. The character models look less good, basic 3D models with no texturing whatsoever. But the animations... are just problematic. Bad and kind of unsettling, too. The game's heavily stylzed which helps a little but not enough to make it pleasant to look at.
Third, there's almost no plot here. Most of the major plot points that will be relevant in the second game are in the first 15 minutes and the last 5. Beyond that, there's nothing but adventure-gamey puzzles to fill in the time. You don't really even get much world development or insight into important characters - presumably in chapter 2 none of these characters will be relevant besides the few main characters, because of how this game ends.
The voice acting is laughably bad, and the audio quality of the voice clips varies too - a few characters used pretty awful recording equipment and you can tell. Bwana, the main character, and the chef on the Yacht are particularly bad for how stereotypical they sound, and both are pretty grating pretty fast. That's a problem when you play as the former.
But, no, you want to know what the real nail in the coffin is? They set up this game as having unique themes and atmosphere, and... do *nothing* with it. You explore a dock, a bit of a city, and a boat or two. Those are your locales. You perform pretty standard puzzles in all these areas. About the only thing of thematic relevance is the spice recipe section, and even then it's not that thematic overall. It's just... wasted effort to set up these themes if they're not going to be used.
Overall, it's a pretty short and average adventure game that costs too much and does too little to stand out. I can only assume the theme and visual design is there because there'd be nothing to distinguish this game otherwise. Like I said, it's not bad, but neither is it that good.

Small, indie point-and-click game. I'm a huge fan of adventure games and just had to try it.
Like all other adventure games, it's too short. But this is shorter than most.
It just doesn't feel quite finished yet. Not just due to the "Chapter One" status, but many of the events and even main characters are presented without any sort of backstory or explanation.
The team obviously spent a lot of time on doing animations and the graphical art is great. The dialogue is humorous and who doesn't like a noir setting?
If they patch up some of the plotholes in time for a release of Chapter Two, this could become a great game.

One of the most unique, clever, and truly enjoyable games I had the pleasure of playing in 2014! The Journey Down is a stylish, and sleek Point & Click masterpiece. It has something for everyone... Comedy, Action, Adventure, Mystery & Romance. The characters are simply lovable and not afraid to be so. Even the gun toting, spats wearing bad guys are endearing! The vocal talents have real flare and their comedic timing is simply brilliant. Locations are richly designed and lit wonderfully. And the music is out of this world!

SkyGoblin has created a game that I could easily see becoming its own cinamatic feature for the big screen. I'm looking forward to revisiting it again, as well as getting the next exciting chapter.
