This isn't a great game.

The game's art is weird. The backgrounds looks very nice, but the 3D models just look flat, bland and out of place when they are joined with the backgrounds. It kind of feels like a low-budget kids cartoon.

The music and voicing is okay, but there are some serious issues with syncing the voicing to the animation at times.

The game itself is fairly short and all of the puzzles seem to be the "run to the other edge of the game area and collect an item" type. There's not much variety to it.

To me it's just a bit boring.

Also, the game crashes. There's a fix the creator identified in the forums which involves renaming a file. That shouldn't be necessary for the player to do in order to play the game.

It's fairly easy and short as I did not need a walkthrough (which I usually do) and finished it in 4 hours. A rarity in point & click games - all the actions you have to take seem logical and not rage-inducing. Great voice acting and soundtrack. The graphics look really outdated - I thought the game was much older than 2010. Could not play it in fullscreen mode as it got all weird and glitchy (I have a Thinkpad P70 with Windows 7). Nonetheless, looking forward to the next instalment. Definitely recommend getting it on sale, as $10 for such a short game doesn't seem like good value, even if I enjoyed it.

The Journey Down oozes with style through its beautiful hand-painted backgrounds and pleasant color palette, excellent soundtrack and voice acting, engaging story, hilarious dialogues and original characters, coherent puzzles and just plain brilliant fun. It reminds me about everything that makes point-and-click adventures one of my long-term favorite genres, without any of the annoyances that plagued it along the years.

The first chapter offers approximately 2 1/2 hours of entertainment, including a few nicely produced cut-scenes, dialogues and gameplay, and is clearly meant to be followed by the second and upcoming third chapters. In many ways this has all the winning characteristics of a good Monkey Island, especially the humor and overall positively carefree vibe, with all the piratey bits replaced by African-inspired culture set in a more modern setting. Kudos to a very creative team! Looking forward to play the rest of the story.

This game is really wonderful with lovable characters, a good story and beautiful music & art. The first chapter is rather short and the puzzles are quite easy but I don't mind because everything else is just that good.

The second chapter is much longer (at least it felt like it) and has some more complicated puzzles. I just can't wait for the third part!!

I highly recommend this game for peeps that are new to the click&point genre - and if you're a c&p nerd like me I still recommend it just for it's coziness.

I like this game! Dialogues full of humor and funny characters. Talking around is the most attracting part while puzzles are just so-so. However, I encountered a game-breaking bug which prevents me from actually fully finish this chapter. Hopefully won't run into any in the second one. ;D

8.7/10 – Journey to the Underworld in This 3-Part Series!

This story follows Bwana, and his trusted side-kick Kito. They operate a dilapidated gas station in a Caribbean Port. Life was pretty relaxed and casual until the day they came across the journal; a book that describes the underworld and various information about their lost father. As orphans he had adopted and raised them and then soon after disappeared without a trace.

The game has some good graphics and follows your typical point and click template. I felt like the production values were on par with major companies if not exceeding in many areas. My favorite part was the voice acting; the characters had soul and some personality that quickly immerses you in the story. This episode was pretty short at just 3 hours; but it was extremely enjoyable and time flew by! This is one of the best kickstarter games I have played without a doubt! If you don't like point and click games this won't change your mind about the genre or anything.

Worth the $9; occasionally you can find this for $3-5 on sale. I will be playing episodes 2-3!

A goofy yet stylish quality start of a series with a superb soundtrack. The biggest con is that it's excessively short - I'd apparently finished it in less than two hours, stuck on a single puzzle which basically involved using a random item on a random item without any in-game clue. I HAD played it once before, but retained almost no memories of the gameplay - though even with that, I doubt it would've taken me much more than 2 hours overall. Just about every other puzzle in the game is at least vaguely logical if you paid attention and checked everything before, which is definitely a plus. Graphically from great to... hm... and mostly quite stylish, some chuckles here and there... Great soundtrack, good voice-acting (though one character, for some reason, sounds like he's talking through a 2$ microphone, really strange). The lack of body would have me consider a non-recommendation, despite all the obvious positive sides, but together with the excellent Chapter Two, it's a thumbs-up.

This is very much in the vein of traditional point-and-click style games like the Monkey Island series. If you're into the kind of puzzles that you play in games like that (including sometimes frustrating video game logic), you'll find this to be a delightful game. In fact, I think a lot of the puzzles and logical conclusions you have to make to reach solutions in this game are actually much more straightforward (and aha!-inducing) than a lot of the puzzles in traditional point-and-clicks.

There's a lot of fun humor in these games, and a lot of moving back and forth between areas and basking in your own cleverness when you've finally solved a puzzle. The art and music style is Afro-Caribbean as others have pointed out, and apparently many of the character profiles are based on African masks, which is pretty neat. It's also cool to have a video game that features neary all African characters--I mean how often do you see that? If all of this sounds good to you, then I totally recommend getting this game.

Game gives hints on how to solve problems/puzzles (rare, only remember 1 time) in game by main character telling how I don't like that if you dont manage it first. So it's bad design in that way. otherwise nice point and click game.

If you are looking for an adventure where you have to click everything on everything else, this may be your game.

The solution to the first puzzle is use breadsticks as steps of a ladder. Says the walkthrough... I had already uninstalled it.

An excellent although short adventure, with it’s unique style and characters as it’s main selling point. The puzzles are mostly logical and you won’t find much frustration during the 2-3 hours it takes to complete. And as those hours are spent in an humorous noir setting with a fantastic jazz and dub soundtrack they will fly past quick.

Coming late to the game here has it’s advantages as the third and final episode is now funded, in the making and with a probable release during 2016. That makes it three years between the first and the final episode, all individually funded with kickstarters. You can have whatever opinion about releasing a game in such a manner, but in the end it made this game possible, which adventure game fans should be grateful for.

Recommended, if you can hold out for the ending for about a year.

Recomendadísimo! Tiene un aire a las aventuras gráficas clásicas total, me recuerda muchísimo al Grim Fandango en el ambiente, en la música, en el argumento e incluso en los personajes sin duda esta podría considerarse su secuela espiritual también tiene ciertos toques que lo asemejan a Monkey Island.

Juegazo en toda regla y que debes comprar sin dudar ni un solo instante, está en inglés pero si tienes un nivel medio se puede jugar sin ningún tipo de inconveniente ya que no requiere de un nivel alto.

Estoy pasándome ahora el capítulo 2 y me está gustando aún más que el primero (que ya es difícil) y el tercer capitulo saldrá en septiembre de este mismo año (deseando de pillarlo estoy).

En definitiva, si eres fan de las aventuras gráficas de toda la vida estás tardando en descargartelo hay que apoyar el lanzamiento de este tipo de juegos que cada vez cuesta más ver y el precio es casi irrisorio para el dinero que te gastarías en cualquier tontería.

PD: El juego rebosa carisma y sentido del humor por los cuatro costados... en más de una ocasión me he reído a carcajada limpia y las voces están muy conseguidas. Decir también que existe una versión 'retro' de este primer episodio para descargar gratuitamente en su página oficial, os la recomiendo para que veáis como es el juego.

Intro - About
Find the parts you need for your old airplane for someone to help you get out of debt. This point and click adventure, has comedy and wonderful art and puzzles as you make progress. Play as what I can only assume “Tiki” people or as they call it “Afro-Caribbean twist” and make your way around town collecting things you need to use to get farther a long the story rich campaign.

Pros & Cons
++ Pros
+Appealing art style
+Story Rich
+Price (Current $8.99 US)
+Fun
+Comedy

-- Cons
-Cutscene sounds did not fit video
-Short story - 3 hrs average
-Some things you need to do are very random and there is no clue on what to do
-Tedious walking
-Must be a random clicker / Curious Explorer


Personal Opinion
I found this game very charming and appealing. I loved the graphics and the art they decided to use and made for a much different feel to the game compared to intensely, high graphics. This was a very good game to just sit down and relax to and enjoy a good story with some great puzzles. The ending left off at a hanger which clearly shows there is going to be a 2nd chapter (There is right now). The puzzles were not to difficult though it can be quite a bit tedious running back and forth if you don’t know exactly what you need to do. Most of the time I was walking every where around town about 3 time for one thing trying to find it. I used the guide for about 3 things to help me get back on track.

Final recommendation:
I really did enjoy the game play and the cutscenes did not bother me all that bad due to the shortness. Based on story, graphics, controls, art, difficulty in puzzles and the amount of things to do, I rate this game and good 8/10. This was a game that I didn’t want to walk away from. The story was great and the personalities of the characters made me feel connected. I cant wait to play the second one!

Almost alright, but all the puzzles are either so blatantly simple or nonsensically obtuse that you will spend most of your time searching areas again and again hoping there is something that has now become interactive to solve a puzzle you had figured out in your head screens earlier. The hit and miss quality of voice acting and choppy cutscenes combined didn't impress me much either and broke immersion multiple times throughout the short playtime. It might look a little different, and have decent music, but there are plenty of adventure games from more than a decade ago that have better gameplay.

This is a hidden gem. If you enjoy old-school style point-and-click inventory-based adventure games, you'll enjoy this game. I was a bit unsure, but the unique setting, the charming characters, and the well designed puzzles made this a real treat. There was only one time that I needed to look online for help, and that was just a case where I thought I'd already tried what the solution to the puzzle was. And there was only one truly out there puzzle with that wacky adventure game logic. The rest were mostly sensible and intuitive, with a few light logic puzzles as well. Something else I really liked about this game is that some items are reused in multiple puzzles, rather than everything being one-and-done. Things that would be considered useful tools are in fact, useful in many situations. Outside of that, the art style and music are both fantastic as well. Be advised, it does end on a cliffhanger, and you'll certainly want to proceed immediately to Chapter Two, which is even better than the first chapter.

Más que satisfecha he quedado con esta corta, pero intensa primera parte de cuatro capítulos. Es adictivo, con una historia intrigante, aunque con poca chicha en este primer capítulo, y un protagonista carismático y con mucho potencial que por un precio muy barato, nos ofrece la introducción de lo que será una de las grandes aventuras gráficas del año.

The Journey Down te recuerda por qué amas el género, y tras las 3-4 horas de duración, sientes que el juego sólo acaba de comenzar. Una gran sorpresa para empezar el 2013 que emula las mejores aventuras gráficas de los 90.

Genial aventura gráfica con un personaje cachondo, una música agradable que no molesta aunque seas un patán y necesites tres semanas para completar el juego, una historia lo suficientemente absurda como captar nuestro interés y unos escenarios bien trabajados. Toda esta mezcla podría describir un juego de Lucas Arts pero no, ese tiempo ya pasó, asúmelo. Ahora las aventuras gráficas no parten la pana, pero no seas un llorica del pasado: actualmente hay aventuras geniales si rebuscamos entre la basura de "aventures du ♥♥♥♥♥" y las CR, y encontraremos algunas como ésta.
"The Journey Down" se presenta en forma de capítulos, y éste es el primero. Es corto y no demasiado complicado, pero por ello es fácil encontrarlo de oferta o en bundles, así que si no quieres pagar su precio actual, siempre puedes esperar a encontrarlo de alguna de estas maneras. Otra opción es esperar a que terminen todos los capítulos y los compres todos juntos rebajados, pero tú y yo sabemos que eres un maldito desesperado incapaz de hacer eso, al igual que yo.
Te darás cuenta que Bwana (el protagonista) tiene pinta de ser un fumeta de libro. Me toca un poco las pelotas el dogma de que para molar y molar "hay que ser fumeta". En este sentido, que le den por el ojal al que tuvo esa idea. Donde esté un buen bourbon con hielo que se quiten todos los calporros del mundo.
Las vestimentas que lleva Bwana y su colega me hace pensar todo el rato que estoy manejando un butanero o un preso de guantánamo, y eso que hace años (bastantes) que no veo a los butaneros de naranja, pero en fin, cosas mías.
Para no enrollarme más, cómpralo y juégalo, que después te quejas si una aventura gráfica que acabas de comprar es una basura y que en los 90 era la época dorada y blablabla... Ésta, sin ser la hostia en verso, está bastante bien y hace pasar un rato divertido cogiendo, usando y combinando objetos, que es lo que nos mola a los locos de las aventuras.


Veo que nadie se anima, así que lo preguntaré yo. ¿Porqué tienen esas caras tan raras los personajes? Por algún motivo basaron los personajes en máscaras africanas.
¿Cuándo sale el segundo capítulo? Ya ha salido.
No me interesa lo más mínimo una aventura basada en historia o cultura africanas. Sólo han basado los personajes en máscaras africanas y ya está. Cálmate y respira hondo.

Tras la intro da un poco de miedo porque muestra unas interacciones algo toscas, pero luego funciona muy bien: mejora. Muy cortito, eso sí (2 horas y poco que me ha llevado). De dificultad está bien: aunque no tiene ningún tipo de sistema de pistas si te metes un poco en el juego lo pasas sin estar atascado mucho tiempo... pero ojo, que tiene puzles de verdad, no es ni de paseos ni de hablar y hablar, son puzles de verdad.

It is a very enjoyable game. It is not as challenging as I had expected. The puzzles are varied and very entertaining. I really liked this game and recommend it.
