The Journey Down: Over The Edge Trailer

There seems to be a lot of renewed interest in good ole fashioned point and click adventures thanks to Double Fine studios. Therefore, it’s only right that we should look at other upcoming games in this genre. Back in January, we learned of a new adventure that is in the works, called The Journey Down: Over the Edge.

This game is filled with puzzles that will pick your brain, and carries many African themes. The story follows Bwana, as he tries to save his run-down gas station from closure. You can enjoy some jazzy reggae while traveling through this crazy adventure.

A ton of development has happened since January, including the major milestone of recording all the dialogue for the game. As the faces of these characters have been modeled after African masks, they have very limited expressions.  This is why the voice acting is very important, as it brings in a vibrancy to these characters that would not be found otherwise.

Check out the teaser trailer below to get a taste of what will be coming out in Spring this year for Mac and PC. If you can manage to wait a bit, there will also be ports for Android and iOS shortly after.
