The Journey Down has returned to our Linux gaming boxes with the promise of more pointing and clicking. With zero negative reviews so far on Steam it does seem like it's a hit.

If you like point & click adventure games then you should really give this series a go. The production values are pretty high and the graphics are really quite crisp. It's good to see these types of games make a come back, and especially when they are this good.

The developers are pretty good guys too, as they actually used a ton of their pre-order money towards building a school:

The TJD2 pre-order campaign raised $4,213.81, exactly half of which will go to the construction of Mavuno Secondary School in Tanzania. :D

Official About
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.

Jounrney Down has a nice special atmosphere. Have played the first one and bought the second one in said preorder campaign. Judging from the first episode, I can really recommend it.

I played through this earlier in the week and I've got to say, as much as I really liked the first chapter, this chapter was a big step up in almost every regard. It looks gorgeous (with a few minor exceptions), the voice acting was more consistently good, the story is richer and paced well and the puzzles were really good. Not of the overly hard variety mind, but still complex enough to be very satisfying and I think they really succeeded at giving them a feeling of moving the story forward.

Thanks heaps for writing this, Liam! I've been absolutely swamped.

I totally agree, flesk. Chapter 2 feels like such a leap beyond the first chapter (which was already good to begin with) in terms of structure and execution. It's a worthy successor which raises the bar on all levels and I can't wait to see where it goes from here :D

I guess I should play the first chapter, then… (I don’t even know why it is in my Steam library :P).
