Wot I Think: The Journey Down Chapter 2

By John Walker on August 27th, 2014.

Adventure charmer The Journey Down Chapter 2 has come hurtling in only, um, two years after Skygoblin’s first part. However, with a lengthy, well-constructed and rather pleasant game as a result, it seems it was rather worth the wait. Here’s wot I think:

Holy Wow: The Journey Down Chapter 2 Looks Fantastic

By Nathan Grayson on June 27th, 2014.

Man.

Refresher time: The Journey Down was a great adventure game that came out a while back and then got a strong (though not perfect) HD remake back in 2012. The tale of a Jamacian pilot and his dealings with a mysterious woman, an evil power company, and “The Edge” was quite something, but it rolled credits after it’d only just begun to take off. Thank goodness it’s nearly time for The Journey Down Chapter Two. The wait’s been lengthy, but consider me hopeful for one heck of a payoff.

A Big Deal: Indie Royale’s Got Journey Down, Eight Others

By Nathan Grayson on July 3rd, 2012.

And people tell me I'm weird for taking my entire game collection to the beach.

It seems like only yesterday that the last Indie Royale bundle graced us with yet another tantalizingly priced collection of independent videogames. But, it was in fact, 19 yesterdays ago, which apparently meets the requisite downtime quota in indie bundle time. So now the Summer Bundle‘s setting up shop on our virtual sidewalks with an adorably misspelled copy edited sign and promises of delicious lemonade games like The Journey Down and Serious Sam 2. In total, there’s a whopping nine games up for grabs here, so you might consider taking a peek.

Edge Fund: The Journey Down HD On Sale Now

By Adam Smith on May 21st, 2012.

The fancy remake of AGS point and clicker The Journey Down: Over the Edge is now available. It’s certainly a looker, with a style very much its own, and John proclaimed that the original was “a point-and-clicker that really understood the genre”. The story of gas station owner Bwana and his attempts to escape debt and explore a forbidden region known as The Edge also seemed to please John, so much so that he’s been sitting on top of a copy of the extended and beautified first chapter and growling at anyone who tries to play it before him. Expect to read his thoughts on the game later today. In the meantime, look upon this launch trailer.

Edging Closer: The Journey Down Receives HD Remake

By John Walker on February 22nd, 2012.

But why aren't they African?

You may well remember the absolutely gorgeous The Journey Down: Over The Edge – a superb AGS adventure game by indie devs Skygoblin that not only surprised us with its splendid graphics, but also by being a point-and-clicker that really understood the genre. That was the first chapter in a series, and we’ve been looking forward to the second one for well over a year now. The bad news is, it’s not coming yet. The good news is, the first part has been remade as a commercial game, with swishy new graphics, and apparently lots of new content. You can still play the original chapter for free, and you can see how the new version is shaping up below.
