We took an early look at The Journey Down, a new point-and-click adventure for PC and Mac, courtesy of developers, Skygoblin.

What’s the story

In a shady corner of Kingsport Bay, at 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.
