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 Chapter One is a point and click adventure game in style of the old Lucasarts games. The game has some really good music and a unique visual style for an adventure game with a character art style that uses African carvings for the face designs of the game's characters. The dialogue is funny and the characters are likable. There are some annoying puzzle solutions, with some objects being used in strange ways and some objects that you would think would be able to complete other puzzles. Very short length and there are not very many locations. It's a good beginning to a larger story but nothing that interesting happens in this episode plot wise. The Journey Down Chapter Two continues the adventures of Bwana and Kito right after their plane crashes and they end up on a boat stuck out at sea. Bwana and Kito are both still amusing protagonists do to their cheerful and optimistic personalities and they, as well as most other characters, are voice acted well. The game itself has been improved since the first chapter with a longer length, better puzzles, more plot, and improved graphics.
With its strange (and lovely) art style, The Journey Down is an interesting adventure game to play. The story of those two brothers, this mysterious book and the rich man willing to get his hands on it, is charming and funny to watch. The gameplay is not surprising, though. It’s your typical adventure game with a lot of dialogs and brain-teasing puzzles to solve. Each episode (Two out of Three) lasts about 4 hours and is very interesting to explore. Finally, the soundtrack is excellent. Peculiar visuals, excellent writing, great puzzle-solving gameplay and funny atmosphere make The Journey Down a great addition to the world of adventure games. Let’s hope the third episode will come soon!
