Skygoblin's lovingly handcrafted point-and-click adventure The Journey Down hasn't been ported to the iPad, iPhone and iPod Touch. No, it just sort of wandered in, bobbing its head to some sexy jazzy reggae, and made itself right at home.
With its exquisite hand painted graphics and its singular Afro-Caribbean setting, The Journey Down is one of the most original adventure games I've played in ages. The PC version (coming to Steam on January 9) has been kicking around since the summer, garnering all sorts of praise from adventure fans craving something different from the average white contemporary hero or the fantasy setting. Consider this a palate cleanser for the genre, something fresh to remind players why they love hunting about scenes for items to use on other items to solve puzzles and move on to the next scene.
