About This Game

Far below the noisy metropolis of St. Armando, Bwana follows in the footsteps of his lost father together with Kito and Lina. In their search for the mysterious Underland, they discover a dark conspiracy shrouding the fate of Captain Kaonandodo.

In the second chapter, the plot thickens as our heroes plunge down into the mist below the Edge and wind up in the foggy and treacherous town of Port Artue where they find themselves cornered by pirates and on the run from the law.

The Journey Down is a classic point-and-click saga with an Afro-Caribbean vibe. Get ready to embark on an epic journey of brain-teasing adventure! Chapter One and Chapter Two are available PC, Mac and Linux as well as on iOS, with an android port to follow.

Short version: 86%
The second part of this Rastafari-themed adventure game miniseries is somewhat shorter than the first one, but makes up for it with a more engaging story, interesting locations, and complex puzzles.

Long version:
The Journey Down: Chapter Two took almost two years to reach the players, but it was worth it. The overall tone got a significant revamp, giving it an actual feel of adventure and thrills instead of being a puzzle game with a funny cast.

Even though the characters still act the same way (which is a good point, since they made the first chapter so memorable), the plot is a lot thicker around them. You have to explore a new city where everything seems to be crooked and corrupted, and where the mystery of Kanandodo and his discovery run deeper than ever, making the story progress in territories you may have not even suspected…

…when said story actually progresses. Because the game’s difficulty has increased, despite being made for tablet players. There is less crazy adventure game logic involved, but you have to backtrack often, and a lot. And the last puzzle… even point ‘n’ click veterans may hit a brick wall there.
Still, the game is quite short, shorter than the first chapter, with around 2-5 hours of play time. But the content is so strong that this drawback is barely recognisable.

The sequel TJD1 deserved. Expands upon the first with a longer story, more locations, better puzzles and equally great artwork & music. Loved the atmosphere! Stoked for chapter 3, hoping its as affordable as the first 2 (bundle incoming!?) :D

A really good point-and-click game. The story is interesting, the artwork is amazing, with a unique African ("Afro-noir," according to the devs) vibe, and the music is absolutely beautiful. It's part two of three, with three upcoming probably next year. This one picks up right after the cliffhanger ending of the first part and ends with another one, but the story in between does a good job of filling in more backstory and plot without hitting you over the head with a ton of exposition and setting up a couple of twists that lead to the next part.

The only real con I noticed were consistently inaccurate or misspelled captions. I expect at least one typo for any text-heavy game, but there are more in this one than I've seen in a number of amateur games. Some of the voice recordings are of a noticeably lower quality than the rest, but I only noticed that a few times.

Overall, very much worth playing if you like this style of adventure game, even with the episodic nature of it.

In this particular case, I would be absolutely okay with paying full price for the soundtrack as a separate purchase, because it is that good. Also, their original composer passed away last year and apparently there's an album of his music up for purchase., from which all the proceeds go to charity. I think it was a nice touch that they featured that as a very muted 'hey, if you like his music, you can get this, too' ad at the end of the behind-the-scenes extra that's unlocked once you finish the game.

As far as I'm concerned this is NO downside to this game. It's completely satisfying, as is.

* Still plays like an spiritual sequel to Grim Fandango but with Afro-Caribbean and Pan-African design sensibilites rather than indigenous Mexican aesthetics. Absolutely gorgeous level design and character modelling.

* The puzzles are slightly more challenging than in Chapter One, with a healthy mix of lateral thinking, minigames, and inventory management.

* Even better storytelling than Chapter One. If this started out with heavy Indiana Jones vibes, then Chapter Two brings it firmly into D!ck Tracy territory, with dirty cops, intimidating mobsters, corrupt powers-that-be, and a bleaker urban noir vibe.

* Builds on the setting established in Chapter One. Fascinating, in-depth world-building, from the mistfarer trade and piracy on the "high soup" to the looming threat of the influential San Armando Power Company.

* Quality soundtrack -- a lively mix of laid-back Caribbean island grooves and freewheeling jazz.

Needless to say, I wholeheartedly recommend this game.

...So how long do we have to wait for chapter 3?

I love the original character design in these games. The voice acting is stellar as always, the music and sound are great, and the puzzles are difficult enough to keep your interest without getting frustrating. The story really develops in this chapter and I got sucked in a lot more than I did with chapter 1. The dialogue does go on for a long time sometimes, but it's well written, so relax and enjoy it rather than trying to rush through.

Overall, I recommend the game, though I definitely suggest you play chapter 1 first.
