Ooh, that does look terrific. Any impressions?

I'm currently playing The Journey Down, another adventure game that came out today, but if nobody's tried this by tomorrow I'll probably give it a go.

Cheers.

I bought this one yesterday, but in a very familiar situation for most people right now, the game was bought alongside infinity billion other titles and hasn't been downloaded yet. >_>

Well, I wouldn't rush.

The graphics are terrific, like paper dolls come to life. The music is also very good.

Unfortunately, everything else is a bit all over the place. The dialogue is overwrought, the voice acting is poor, and an eight-year-old would find the puzzles easy. The story is set in the early 20th century, but the heroine speaks like a modern teenager and wears a thigh-skimming lace dress to board a steamship, and it doesn't seem like the author's going for steampunk or some other kind of era mash-up.

Adults are going to find all the flaws I mentioned above, but the kids who might enjoy the puzzles are unlikely to find the epic love storyline appealing. There's also the death of a parent in the first five minutes that could be upsetting to them.

This feels like a labour of love, and kudos to the developer for making and releasing a game, but I'm not sure I could recommend it to anybody.

It really is pretty, though.

Cheers.

The Good:

The graphics and the music are lovly and definitly a reason why I would recommend the Game to everyone who can spare the Dollar for the Game.

The Bad:

I wish the Voice Cast and the writing would have been a bit better since they are sometimes so out of the mood that I had to take a break before I kept playing on. Guess the Developer had to cut somewhere the budget...

For all those that are still unsure about it:

I did add a Gameplay Trailer about the first few Minutes of the Game to the first Post.
