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.

A great point and click adventure with a fresh aesthetic
This game has many positive aspects, such as unique looks, lovable main characters, a mysterious story, awesome voice acting and soundtracks, a price that makes it a must buy and contains a respectful number of puzzles. The only drawback of this game is that it is relatively short. Great solution for a nice, quiet evening to relax.

Thing that enchanted me from the very beginning: lovely sense of humour! If character saying "There's something special about sticking a cold, wet fish in your pocket" after putting a fish into your inventory, makes you smile - then that's probably game for you. It's typical oldschool adventure game. You walk around, grab objects and solve puzzles. These are usually simple, yet enjoyable. Some are out of ordinary and make you laugh, some are usual for that type of game. I would say that game is perfect if not that sometimes it's ridiculous, like the moment when I had to find recipe ingredient among the books - how your supposed to figure that out? But it's not very often and if you're stuck, there's a great, detailed guide on steam. Story at first appears to not be anything special but I liked the ending. World is weird but really believable. Voice overs are great, couldn't get enough of listening main character lines, it often wasn't funny by itself - actor made it amusing!

tl;dr - That's just wonderful game :)

If you like point and click games you might want to check this game out. It's kinda short but if you get it for a low price it is totally worth the money!

Diamond in a rough.
The Journey Down is truly what I'd call a point-and-click adventure game. Unlike many 'modern' titles offering a lot of meaningless wandering and clicking, this one actually tells a story and does it well while at the same time keeping on a fine edge between being overly easy and stupidly hard and counter intuitive.
And let me tell you, I got that noir-ish feeling as soon as I started the game - and it's there alright. It's very similar in atmosphere to noir movies, and, actually, leans a bit towards Grim Fandango (the game). The art style, the music, the humor, the characters and backgrounds all blend together marvelously and produce quite the unique atmosphere and thus the unique game.
Chapter Two is already out and I can't wait to see it, since Chapter One actually ends with a cliffhanger a few miles high (and I tell you can take it quite literally too).

Do I recommend it? For those who appreciate a good noir movie with a pinch of healthy humor it'll score about 10 out of 10. For others probably around 7 or 8, it depends.

4 out of 5

Holy mother of monkeys!

The Journey Down is a classic point & click adventure in the vein of Monkey Island, Grim Fandango, etc. The game is undoubtingly charming, with easygoing jazz tunes and characters ranging from humourous to downright endearing.

I haven't played a point & click this charming in a while, and unlike some other point & click games the story here is actually worth something, quite gripping and definitely worth your time.

It is really hard for me to decide weather to recommend this or not, but I'd say that I am rather more inclined towards a negative feedback.

Positive side:
Very nice artwork, music and atmosphere. This is really what got my my attention. The humor is moderate, couple of laughs here and there, but it gets a bit exagerated at time. Cool in over all. The puzzle are simple and positiverly silly at best but if you just play for entertainment, not taking it too seriously (it's not Myst), you'll have a good time.

Negative side:
Ok, this is the only negative thing I have to say about chapter one. It was way, WAY, too short. You could probably finish the game in less than 15 min. I just started to warm up and really enjoy the game when the end credits just popped up. Shocking! I just couldn't believe it, I thought it was a prank.. but no, that was it, right to my face! That really killed all the appreciation I had for the concept.

The fact is that the chapter one is nothing more than a teaser to get you to buy chapter 2. I bought both anyway simultaniously, but I do not appreciate such manipulation from story tellers, it really left me with a bitter after taste.

I haven't played chapter 2 yet, and I am not as enthusiastic as before to start it, as it might be just another teaser... Eventhough I got both of them on sales I still feel like I got a bit ripped of, at least for chapter one. For such a short story it's not even worth 1€. The developers offer a free (low res) version of Ch1 from their site, i'd probably recommend that one instead. I could say at least that for the artwork it could deserve some slack, but I'm still recovering from the shock so, NO!

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.

ABSOLUTELY AMAZING GAME!!!

It might has taken me just 5 hours to reach its end but it is by far the most interesting, amazing, well-worked indie game i have ever played!

Its music, its story, its characters, its graphics, its mechanics deserve an Oscar Award!

There is just one single phrase which describes my feelings and thoughts about this game and i will use it to end my short but full review:

"Best Indie Game!!!"

An enjoyable, casual, puzzle point and click adventure. It features child friendly comedy and graphics, featuring two Carribean ne'er–do–wells who craft really creative items to build an airplane, and travel to 'the edge' with a lady who is studdying books, that an evil underboss wants, his goons come for you and shall leave no witnesses.
It's however fairly expensive for the length of the game.

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.

Points for the distinctive ethnic aesthetic. Unfortunately, that's the most positive thing I have to say about this game. It doesn't deliver on the promised laughs and brain teasing. The puzzles aren't challenging, but sometimes involve re-searching something that didn't yield anything useful when you first tried it, which is annoying in a point-and-click. The humor comes entirely from playing up the ethnicity - which really isn't very funny - and the idiocy of the puzzle solutions - which is standard fare in a point-and-click, and the execution here is not noteworthy. Most of the voice acting is done decently well, but one character in particular sounds a bit like a deteriorated cassette recording, and hearing every other sentence punctuated with 'man' gets old.

Now, usually, a point-and-click's saving grace is its story, and I'd like to be able to recommend this one on that basis, but I can't. It's not that it's bad; it's just that there's not nearly enough of it to render judgment. The game's only about 2 hours long, and most of that is not spent developing the story. All that you're getting here is a hook for a story, and it's one that could be good, but isn't especially compelling. This doesn't feel like chapter 1 of a story so much as a prologue, or maybe a demo for the full game.

Granted, the price isn't too steep, and it could be worth getting on sale, but if you're looking for point-and-clicks, I suggest you try Daedalic first.

I played 90min, its ok but frustrating sometimes, moving left and right, up and down constantly to get items and fit them together.. i rate it 7/10. It's a grim fandango wannabe but doesn't quite cut it. It's not terrible, it's just not amazing by any means.

The Good: Absolutely wonderful setting -- character designs based on pan-African sculptures, locations inspired equally by big-city noir and Afro-Caribbean urban life, with a fitting jazzy soundtrack. The world-building is not quite as unique as Grim Fandango, but it comes close. There's definitely a Double Fine or late-period LucasArts vibe to the game, which really appeals to me. I'm invested enough in the story to consider buying Chapter 2 at full price.

The Bad: The gameplay is as simplified as point-and-click gets. No SCUMM parsers or clue-matching or The Cave-style special abilities. While this makes it ideal for relative newcomers to the genre, veteran players may find it derivative. Most puzzles feel like variations on time-tested scenarios: getting past the hostile guard animal, tricking the snooty doorman, collecting MacGuffin parts (in this case, restoring a plane).

The Ugly: Believe me, I prefer shorter games, but the play time for this felt kinda ridiculous, at just under the 4-hour mark. I'll let it off the hook, since it's meant to be part of an episodic narrative, but it really left me wanting more.

I have done this game for four hours. The gameplay is really short, but it was interesting to play man!
You just make contact with other characters (conversation and point-click) and then you must solve the problems. The problem is helping the lady, Lina, finding the book of The Journey Down. In that book, the place what called as Underland must be found (Bwana's father mentioned it). The journey begins when your airplane was ready. Thanks to Kito, the best friend of Bwana, for fixing the airplane. I don't know what will happen the next story because it was the chapter one. So, you must play the next chapter.

2.5 hours of Point&Click fun!

All the puzzles actually make sense and you can easily complete the game without having to look at walkthroughs or anything. I am not a fan of the genre but enjoyed it very much! Highly recommended.
