The first episode of The Journey Down was released in 2010 and was a huge critical success that also, very happily, resonated with the tasteful adventure gaming masses. It was played by tens of thousands and even managed to earn 11 of them coveted AGS Awards, including Best Game, Best Gameplay, Best Music, Best Character Art and Best Background Art. Why? Well, why not find out yourself by actually playing it reader? It's still available -for free- over at Skygoblin and looks as lovely as ever.
Then again, this would merely be the first version of the game; the retro-looking one. The stunning trailer you see above, the one with those amazing graphics and that impressive audioscape, is a teaser for the forthcoming and incredibly promising commercial version of the game. Indeed, The Journey Down is evolving into something much bigger and all indie loving point-and-clickers should be more than happy. It will be available for PC, Mac and eventually them smartphones.
