Today we’ve reached a major milestone as we launch the first chapter of The Journey Down on Steam! We celebrate this by selling it at 20% off during the first week of sales. The game will later return to its normal price of $6.99 / € 5.99. PC and Mac versions are available now and Linux is in beta.
If you’ve already got a copy of the game for PC, Mac or Linux, you can send us an email with your receipt and we’ll do our very best to get you a Steam key as soon as possible. If you got the game from IndieRoyale or IndieGameStand we will send your key automagically, just be patient
If, for some otherworldly reason, we’ve failed to hammer this into your head already, The Journey Down: Chapter One is also available for iPhone and iPad on the App Store.
Finally we are happy to be able to announce the long awaited launch of Chapter One of The Journey Down for iPad, iPhone and iPod touch.
From the very first day we started working on the original version of The Journey Down, we had a vision that we’d some day port it to handheld devices. Because of this, we decided very early on to keep interactions in the game as slimmed, intuitive and as uncomplicated as possible. This resulted in a nice and sleek interface on PC and Mac, but now also in a very handheld-friendly way of interacting with the game on iOS. We are awfully proud of how it turned out, and are happy to finally be able to share it with you!
If you’ve already given the first chapter a spin on iOS, please consider helping us spread the word by reviewing the game on the App Store. It really makes a difference. Thank you!
In other news, we can now finally announce a big secret we’ve been holding in for quite some time – we are coming to Steam January 9! Be sure to check out the awesome “coming soon” page that actually proves this to be true!
I just finished working on our spankin’ new “Art of TJD: Chapter One” PDF which now can be downloaded together with the game over on indiegamestand if you beat the current average, which at the time of writing is no more than $1.39. That’s a lower price than the game has ever been sold at before, so don’t miss out!
The “Art of” PDF contains a bunch of haphazard rants by me about various parts of our art process, ranging from our cultural influences all the way down to the nitty gritty art-process detailing the development and thoughts behind several of the game’s backdrops.
On top of supporting our development, by picking up TJD1 from indiegamestand you will also support our favorite charity organization Medecins Sans Frontieres, who will be receiving 10% of the proceeds.
