GAME REVIEW – The Journey Down: Chapter One – HD (PC)

By Marty Mulrooney

tjd6

In 2011, Alternative Magazine Online reviewed a freeware indie point-and-click adventure game called The Journey Down: Over The Edge, describing it as “one of the most essential adventure gaming experiences of the past few years.” AMO then went on to exclusively interview the game’s soundtrack composer Simon D’souza, as well as the game’s creator Theodor Waern. In the latter interview, Theodor revealed his plans to create “a commercial, high res version” of the game. The Journey Down: Chapter One – HD is now finally with us in 2012 and AMO can confirm that is has been worth the wait. This is everything an indie adventure game should be.
