So I enjoyed The Journey Down, SkyGoblin’s remake of their classic-style point and click adventure. But I was so hesitant about the price. Charging £10 for a game that lasted a couple of hours seemed problematic. But worse, this is the first chapter of an unknown number, meaning it’s impossible to know just how much you’d be investing to see the series through. Rather brilliantly, the developers have just announced they’re halving the price, bringing it to $7/£5, which is exactly where I think it should be. There’s a fun video explaining this below.
If you already bought the game at full price, you’ll receive the game’s jazzy soundtrack for free. If you didn’t, you can get the game for a fiver via Desura now. (Weirdly, it’s still a tenner at GamersGate, but I’ve a funny feeling that by my pointing this out it might change soon.)
