This is the free low-res, no-speech prototype of the coming HD point-n-click game of the same title. The Journey Down is a classical point and click adventure game, full to the brim with puzzles, conspiracies, mystery and adventure! In chapter 1 "Over the Edge" we follow Bwana and his trusted sidekick Kito, as they struggle to make ends meet at their waterfront gas station in an off-beat place called Kingsport bay. When all hope seems lost and the power company is on their case with a mean threat, something promising appears. A woman. A woman with cash. What strings does she come attached with? What secrets are hiding underneath her fair surface? Find out, in chapter one of The Journey Down!

BTW, your game works on Linux (Ubuntu distribution at least ;-)), so I don't see any reasons why you couldn't add "Linux" to your game available platforms. ;-)

I don’t think we've seen an adventure game with visually this well developed original fantasy game world since Grim Fandango. And the excellent soundtrack perfectly compliments it.

Gamplaywise and storywise this series gets a very strong start too. Too bad we'll need to wait quite a bit for its climax, but I bet it'll be worth it.

It want to paint it with white stripes and can't do it from bucket because it is clumsy so I put the paint brush in the paint and then try to use it on the shirt which seems the logical thing to do but it keeps saying it could draw things on it but no reason to even though there is! please help is this an error or am I doing something wrong?

Talk to the sailors some more and then try again! I'm guessing you're stuck since YOU have figured out the puzzle, but Bwana hasn't.

Thanks for your kind words! Hope you enjoy the rest of the game as well!

Hey, thanks for the lovin'!

I guess when the project started it could just as well have been Wintermute, I just happened to stumble upon AGS, and then AGS it was! Now I'm used to AGS and love working with it so I see no reason to consider any other platform really.
