Adventure games have been around since the 1970s. In the 1990s the genre reached its high point with Lucasarts and Sierra adventure titles like Grim Fandango and Kings Quest. Then the industry crashed and became niche.
Recently, the genre has had a resurgence thanks to digital distribution methods and the rise of episodic games. The Journey Down joins the pantheon of big episodic adventure games. Is this the start of a great journey or is it just the start of a long adventure?
