TJD3 development pics

There's another fresh new bunch of pics from the development of TJD3 up in the artwork section. Please check 'em out and give us your thoughts!

Also, in other news. We've finally got an office again! Check out my little writeup about how awesome that is, over here.

So how’s overall progress coming along? Well the TJD3 design (puzzle and story) is solidifying by the day and I’m totally in love with it. We’re still at the bloating-phase though so the game is ballooning daily. Some day now we’re gonna have to bring in the reality-hammer and distill it down into something doable, but right now we’re just focusing on making the design as bombastic as possible. We had a similar approach to TJD2 and we’re real happy with how that came out, so odds are it will work this time around as well. :)

Thanks for checking in!

"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."

Jest sporo przygodówek, które chciałbym wypróbować, ale trochę odstraszają mnie długością. Tutaj tego problemu nie było, ale bałem się o jakość tytułu. Na szczęście zaskoczył mnie bardzo pozytywnie.

To zabawna gierka, z ciekawą historią, świetną muzyką i tekstami(bardzo fajny klimat), a zagadki, choć nie banalne, da się rozwiązać po chwili namysłu(nie ma tak totalnie absurdalnych rzeczy, jak choćby w Samie i Maxie).

Jedyny problem to długość gry. To pierwszy epizod, zostawiający spory niedosyt. Trzeba będzie sięgnąć po kolejny.

Fun fact: ukończyłem to, zanim wydropiłem wszystkie karty.

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.

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.

I had much fun with this game! I like the humour and art style even if the soulless black eyes creep me out bit. Game is maybe too expensive comparing to how short it is. If second one is as short then I will wait until it is in sale before buying. I look forward to see how story continues in that!

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 :)

I tried really hard to like this game, and recommend it, but it didn't happen.

The Journey Down is a point-and-click adventure game with very unique visual style, above-avarage music, fine voiceacting, and a silly storyline with dumbest puzzles ever imaginable. I usually don't look for difficulty in point-and-click adventure games, since I found story to be the most important thing to consider, but these puzzles are beyond any measurement of difficulty. I mean, Broken Age for example, also had pretty easy puzzles, but they made sense, progressed the story in one way or another, and they required some kind of thinking nonetheless. In The Journey Down, puzzles are like "There's a thirsty guy over here, there's a glass over there, and there's a water tap right there. Now you click them in order.", and they have no contribution to story whatsoever. By the way, you are a reggie guy who speaks five times slower than an avarage person, reviewing literally each and every action you do. Game consistently tries to be funny, especially with accents, but they are flat-out boring, with nothing happening outside. And that's about it.

Although it's not the worst point-and-click adventure game ever, there are so many amazing point-and-click games to be played like Monkey Island series, The Longest Journey series, Syberia series, Discworld, Full Thortle, Broken Sword series, and Broken Age, that The Journey Down is not even a competitor.

One last thing, if you can compare this game with Grim Fandango, you are clearly out of your mind.

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!

I loved this game. I don't like challenging/frustrating games (I play these to relax) so the easy puzzles were right up my ally. The music is awesome - jazzy authentic reggae that is tailored for each scene. The Afro-caribbean vibe was on point. I felt like the characters were long lost friends and the story was interesting and left me wanting more. I think it is hilarious that some reviewers found the characters creepy. I have a mask very similar to Bwana hanging in my living room. I call him Umbutu. I paid a pretty penny for him too :) Artistically this game is beautiful and clever and I'm about to purchase part two right now!

With all the positive reviews for this game floating around I feel I need to add my input. In short, if you enjoy P&C Puzzle games, do not buy this game.

It's quite difficult to find an aspect of it I like- The puzzles were exceptionally poor, lacking in any kind of imagination or ingenuity (Think generic charity shop puzzle-book puzzles and you won't be far off). Where good Point and Click puzzle games move coherently from one puzzle to the next using logical plot points, it feels that the developers simply add arbitrary problems to form a chain of bad puzzles until it is long and bulked out enough to be called a game. This makes the game more of a chore than an enjoyable experience, as there is little in the way of progression or logic. Also, if you don't do the right action in a given time, the main character will explicitly blurt out the solution, cutting all satisfaction from the puzzle-solving experience.
The characters were so one-dimensional it was laughable. Worse, some characters arbitrarily changed their personalities, sometimes hating the main character for no good reason, then in the next moment being overly nice with no explanation. Further, the main character was fundamentally unlikeable (This was not helped by the emotionless mask-like faces the characters have). I also thought the voice acting wasn't up to scratch- is it just me, or does Bwana dip in and out of his accent?
The animation was quite poor, and at times environments looked very rushed and unfinished. The lip-sync was dreadful, and ruined any immersion the cut-scenes might provide.
I also found the game to be completely humourless. The jokes fell so flat it was more of a cringe-worthy experience than a funny one. The only way to get through this game was to laugh at it rather than with.

It was very sad to play this game after seeing comments likening this to greats such as Grim Fandango or Monkey Island (two of my favourite games). It is a husk of a puzzle game, and was genuinely the worst P&C puzzler I have ever played.

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.

Enjoyable game. It has a great art style and I like the Jamaican Accent of the protagonist, I don't think I heard that in a (adventure) game before so it was refreshing and enjoyable. Some of the other voice actors are a little weak though. The Puzzles aren't all that hard but I really don't mind that, in fact I prefer it to a degree as long it's not as stupidly easy as Broken Age was. There's plenty humor and it doesn't stand out above the classics, but it's still enough to be entertained and appreciate it. I did laugh a few times, my favorites were the Crane scene, the Pelikan scene and the Concierge! Of course being episodic there is unfortunately no real closure and it is rather short, so it might not be for everyone except for those of us starved for more adventures and it fulfilled that job for me. I'll have to try the other episodes as they come out to see how the story and gameplay develops, but I'd probably recommend the complete thing too :)

This is a real eye-opener game. Unique design concept deep heart and it made ​​a very good detail. Plot is entirely inferior to Hollywood blockbusters. Role model is very fine, making good interface. So what? You worth trying to play!

GMG送的掛卡遊戲,這遊戲的畫風確實很不錯
有種3D動畫.<僵屍新娘>的感覺
裏面男主人公的聲音別提多搓了.
然後那種美式英語的發音.聽的我耳朵都懷孕了..
乾脆自創美國語得了.開篇在加油站兩個逗比在玩電源開關..
我勒個去..你關了下電源..對岸整個城市都停電了..這麼屌你家裡人知道麼.
後面跟美人共度小黑屋.所謂的美人?如花都比她漂亮..那個臉啊...
坑坑疙瘩一堆..簡直就是香蕉皮上的疙瘩.
別叫我MISS.叫我linda..
然後超現實的事情發生了...梯子爛了..中間用於踩踏的棍子沒了..
於是代筆男主要找替代品修梯子...結果..!!! 居然用 就是那種餅乾條替代..修好了梯子?!!
我勒個去..(吾輩英語渣.反正那是吃的.我看代筆男主放嘴裏咬了.還說好吃喜歡什麼之類的話.不查翻譯了.
這還不算什麼,,關鍵的是!
