The Journey Down is now complete, all three chapters released

"Episodic adventure" is a term that, aside from the grisly churn of Telltale's erratic model, has pretty much been abandoned by the industry. Tried it, didn't work. And it was especially risky for small indie studios who all discovered, simultaneously, that it takes a really, really long time to make an adventure game, even if you split up the task. Hence the really superb The…

Running from rhinos (and the police) in The Journey Down Chapter 3 trailer

The Journey Down [official site] is a rather excellent series of point-and-click adventure games with smart puzzles, a twisting plot and heavy Afro-Carribean influences. Parts one and two came out four years apart, in 2010 and 2014, and the third and final chapter is due out next month after a successful Kickstarter campaign. Developer Skygoblin Games have released a trailer for it, and there's plenty of shenanigans on…

The Journey Down Chapter 2 review

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:

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

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…

Edge Fund: The Journey Down HD On Sale Now

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…

Edging Closer: The Journey Down Receives HD Remake

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…
