Get TJD1 + TJD2 for $5.99 (TJD2 alone will be $8.99 after the release). Half of all pre-order revenues go to the Mavuno girl's school project. I worked with these guys in Tanzania in 2008 and they're doing a really great job there!

Already have TJD1? Then you're a pretty awesome person because you've already supported the development of TJD! It also means you can give away your extra TJD1 Steam key to a friend and save a buck on the next birthday present :)


All TJD2 screenshots can be downloaded at full resolution in this zip archive. An extended sneak peek at the TJD2 soundtrack can be heard on Simon's bandcamp page.

TJD2 has taken us a long time to build. Why? Because we have truly challenged ourselves with it. We didn't want to just re-do what we did with the first game. We wanted to take the critique we got from the first game and battle it, head on. This has taken quite a while, but it has also made TJD2 a better game in every way possible. Follow the development over on

"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." - Kotaku

The Journey Down is a classic point-and-click saga with an Afro-Caribbean vibe. Get ready to embark on an epic journey of brain-teasing adventure! Chapter One is available now on Steam for PC, Mac and Linux as well as on iOS, with an android port to follow.

In a shady corner of Kingsport Bay.. the outskirts of St Armando, Bwana and his trusted sidekick Kito struggle to make ends meet at their run-down gas station. Little do they know that they are about to be thrown into a spine-tingling adventure that will take them far from home and right into a twisting plot of corruption and danger.

In the first chapter of The Journey Down, the search for a lost journal leads to forgotten secrets of the mysterious Underland. Follow Bwana and Kito as they puzzle their way forward and begin to uncover the true fate of their long lost father, Captain Kaonandodo.

"Inventory puzzles, minor theft, and mischief will make any adventure game fan feel right at home, while the use of macabre masks and black African themes and characters make it feel fresh." - Destructoid

The art, shapes and patterns of The Journey Down are deeply inspired by central African carvings, and the characters themselves are largely based on genuine masks from countries such as Tanzania, Kenya and Nigeria.
