From the bottom of our hearts, a huge thank you to each and every one of you for your support. Without you guys, JD3 may never have seen the light of day, and being able to wrap up the trilogy means extremely much to us both on a business and a personal level. Our lives have pretty much revolved around the TJD franchise the past seven years. Wrapping this up is A BIG DEAL. 😀


Sketch from 2006 (!) TJD has been with us for quite a while!

Needless to say, we’re going to need all the help we can get spreading this game. If there’s any way you could consider helping spreading the trailer for JD3 that would be extremely appreciated. Be it on facebook, twitter or you know simply showing it to your friends on a good ol’ CRT montior. :) Anything goes!

If you’re not a position where you can play immediately, say maybe you’re busy out working selling leather jackets or something and you haven’t got the time to play right now, you can always soak up some of the ambiance in this youtube video, featuring one of the more prominent tracks of the JD3 OST:

We’re stoked to hear your thoughts on the game! Please flood us with comments once you’ve made it through! Preferably right here on the steam forums!

THANK YOU! Sincerely,

Theo, Henrik, Mathias.

Reviews

"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."
87% – The Indie Game Magazine
