For anybody who hasn't spotted it, Skygoblin have a dev blog up on their website which covers some The Journey Down Chapter 2 stuff, which is currently in what they're calling a "balpha" testing phase.

According to the changelog I get in the Desura client, it added "support for older Linux distributions, running glibc 2.13 or newer (e.g. Ubuntu 11.04, Ubuntu 11.10, Linux Mint 12)."

Truly an epic Indie, point 'n' click game! I loved it, and i love the uniqueness of it, and ofc the voice acting rocks! I recommend this to all point 'n' click players out there! And for those new to the genre, this is a good first. Funny dialogue that is all ;)

I did a PlayDB video of this game, check it out if you want to see before you buy it.

I was wondering this, too. I know the game just got on Steam but it really is an amazing piece of art and I want to make sure I don't miss out on my key, I plan to play through again and share the experience with friends who don't know about The Journey Down. Thanks to Skygoblin for making such a quality title and being so cool, you've got new fans! I'll certainly be waiting (impatiently) for more of this awesomely relatable story.
