Though the first two chapters of SkyGoblin’s ‘Afro-Caribbean’ point-and-click adventure series The Journey Down were well-received by gamers and critics everywhere (including here at Select Start Media), the developers are turning to Kickstarter to help with funds for the long-awaited chapter three.  Launching in October, the campaign aims to raise enough funds to conclude the series with the polish that it deserves, with the developers having revealed that the plot and puzzle design are already well underway. Fans and newcomers that back the project are being promised loads of behind the scenes material and previously unreleased footage in return for their support.

Personally, I really enjoyed the first two chapters of this unique series and would absolutely love to see it get the credit it so dearly deserves. If the extra content provided with the previous installments is any indication, I’d expect to see some great additional content from SkyGoblin included in the Kickstarter packages!

You can follow the ‘journey’ (I’m funny) of chapter three on the game’s website, www.thejourneydown.com and while you’re waiting you should check out my reviews for chapters one and two!
