The Journey Down: Chapter Three has officially launched to conclude the series

Posted by , / 6249 views

The Journey Down: Chapter Three [GOG, Steam, Official Site], a classic point-and-click saga with an Afro-Caribbean vibe finally has the last episode released today with same-day Linux support.

Check out the launch trailer:

We should hopefully have some thoughts up within a week from contributor flesk, who's a fan of the series. I would rather leave the actual reviewing to another contributor who can do it justice, since it's not generally my type of game.

About the game:

In the jungles of the Underland, scattered remnants of an ancient culture speak of a great evil that dwells in the shadowy depths of the Kwayerumoshi caves. But even the darkest secrets of this lost age are about to be revealed by the brave actions of three unlikely heroes.

In the final chapter of The Journey Down, Bwana, Kito and Lina explore the vast reaches of the Underland and unravel its long-forgotten history. Their adventure comes to a bombastic conclusion when they learn the true nature of the Great Asili tree and the Armando Power Company.

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!

You can grab it on Steam, or from the official site where they offer a Steam key along with a DRM free copy.

They've had many ups and downs while being an indie developer and they had a few disasters along the way. If you're interested in a little history of the developer, they did a mini-documentary. It was a rather interesting watch to see what lengths some developers go to.

 

Have you been playing the series, what's your opinion on it?

I’ve played a whole 5 minutes of The Journey Down chapter one according to Steam. Maybe one day…

Edit: they should put the game DRM-free on Humble or GOG. People who want DRM-free games will probably miss it if it’s only on their web site.

You mean like https://www.gog.com/game/the_journey_down_trilogy?

Parts 1 and 2 are also on Humble, but part 3 isn't (yet?).

These are really great games. I think I enjoyed the third part most of all. Full disclosure: I helped test both chapter 2 and 3 for Linux

DrMcCoyParts 1 and 2 are also on Humble, but part 3 isn't (yet?).

I imagine they will soon. I sent the developer an email letting them know some people here are looking for availability on Humble.

Ah great, I saw “You can grab it on Steam, or from the official site where they offer a Steam key along with a DRM free copy” in the article and didn’t check .

(Or maybe I did and it wasn’t on GOG yet?)

I played chapters 1 and 2 already and was waiting for the closing chapter. Just finished it. Very much liked it.

The game is short (4 hours per chapter for the first two, and 5 hours to complete chapter 3), 13 hours in total, but I was playing at a leisurely pace.

The puzzles are on the easy side and don't offer much of a challenge, but still are enjoyable. What drew me to the game is the very interesting Africa-inspired visual style and the atmosphere. Voice acting is above average, of a much higher caliber than what you'd expect from an indie game coming out of an unknown developer. The original soundtrack is also quite immersive and befitting the setting / storyline / visual style.

I still recommend the game if for no other reason than the fact that they did day-1 linux releases.

I've played the first chapter a few times, such an awesome game! Never got around to buying the second chapter but always wanted to. Now that chapter three is here, I might buy them both!

EikeI think I have a key for chapter one and two.
If someone wants to have it, drop a PM.

I still got a key for chapter one (of which I'm 99% sure it works).
Anybody?

Grab a free key from Eike and save all of 0.89€.

(Seriously, chapter one is 90 % off on Steam right now.)
