Trading cards now available!

Lots o people have asked us about adding trading cards to TJD1 so we finally caved in! The cards are available now and there's one set with five cards, and a whole bunch of badges, emoticons, and backdrops to go with 'em. I hope you'll enjoy!

We're working on setting up trading cards for TJD2 right now, with a bit of luck they'll go live within a day or so as well.

Thanks again for supporting our development! :)

Recenze

"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

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.

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!

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.
