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.

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.

The Journey Down Chapter One is about two brothers adopted by a man off the street. They're running the gas charter in the bay and struggling with money. When a woman searching for a book arrives, suddenly, they're seeing "dollars".... but did they know that the book owned by their father was in their possession and sparked interest... in a powerful man?

The first chapter is set in the bay, where Bwana, your character, is working and living. As he needs to get Lyna across the ocean, he has to fix the airplane he's not flying since he was 12. That's why Bwana is messing with gas cannister, trying to get out of a freezer in a yacht, amazed that he can do a ladder with.... nah I'm not spoiling the puzzles.

I enjoyed that point-&-click adventure because of the atmosphere. There is clearly influenced by Afro-Caribbean (as the characters are inspired from African masks but the way they're talking and the music is more from the Caribbean). You ask yourself if Bwana hasn't smoked weed before the beginning of the story but well, he seems more like having a cool personnality. And that, dear gamers, that what I ask also from an adventure game: characters with a grey personnality as they're reflecting what we are: imperfect. Bwana isn't stupid. Some of his remarks show someone aware of his surrounding, feeling down because of his father's disappearance. Kito, his "street" brother, is a genius when it comes to engineering, despite his cool attitude. Lyna, well-mannered, stays polite and provides information on what may happen in the background. She's never pressuring the boys, apart when the mean guys arrive. Besides, the fact that the ambiance is also leading to a comedy game is also doing that.

The graphics are also good: with scenes and rooms looking like in a comic. The only thing that I had an hard time to get used to is probably the characters design.

The music, well, is adapted. I really had the impression that I was in the Caribbean. It's awesome.

Apart one or two freezes, the game runs smoothly.

I've just a little complaint: the puzzles aren't hard at all, true. But sometimes, it's hard to imagine the solution for some of them. Like for the propeller used as a fan by Bwana. But also, as the puzzles aren't so hard, the game is short. As short as a Hidden Object game can be. A little more of 2 hours. I understand that the rest will follow (second chapter is out). But a little more would have been good too.

The Journey Down: Chapter 1 manages to entertain me. I'll play the second chapter very soon and I'll buy that third episode without problems.

A great point&click indie, in the style of the classics, with great voice-acting, humor and atmosphere. Puzzles are various and quite challenging at some points. The multi-ethnic characters are really fascinating. Athmospheric music is relaxing and the few cutscenes are nicely made.

If you are a fan of Sam&Max style games, you will like this one too.
