The Journey Down: Chapter One is an episodic, retro-style point and click adventure game, much like Tales of Monkey Island.

In this retro version of the game (an HD version is available), graphics are pixelated, but it doesn't stop players from enjoying the great story and soundtrack. The Journey Down: Chapter One features great music that gives the game a whimsical feeling.

Controls are simple. Click where you want your character to go and click on items in the environment to interact with them. The Journey Down: Chapter One features the quirky writing and humor that makes these types of adventure games great.

While the script may not appeal to everyone, the art is undeniably beautiful. Cities look lived-in and the cartoony shadowing found in many of The Journey Down: Chapter One's levels really make the environments pop.

Overall, The Journey Down: Chapter One is a great adventure game with challenging puzzles and witty dialog. Fans of this retro version will want to check out the HD remake, complete with voice acting.

Changes

  • Remade all mp3 music to ogg to avoid nasty crash when loading saves in certain rooms
  • Removed silly fan re-appear bug that enabled 1/3 of the game to be skipped lolz
