“Downward will let you explore and leap around in a Post-Apocalyptic Alternate-Middle Ages Universe. What could be better?”

Welcome to Downward, an old-school action-adventure that will be both difficult and rewarding. It will be rich in secrets and cloaked in mystey. Exploration will be at its core.   

The game will take place years after an apocalypse caused by the arrival of three disruptive rogue planets. The Earth was left almost lifeless and in ruins.

You’ll play a mysterious wanderer on a journey through ancient and majestic lands, fueled by your thirst for knowledge. Your exploration will be supported by an advanced parkour system, which will help you clear all the challenges in your path and will make every cliff enjoyable.

As you progress through the game, you’ll come to understand how to take advantage of the three planets to the point of mastering and controlling their movement and their influences on the world.

Caracal Games is looking to release Downward in English, Italian and French on Windows, Mac and Linux in Q1 2017.

I've been with JA in one capacity or other since 2003. I'm currently website administrator. I'm also a digital artist (my avatar is one of my creations). I write reviews and articles, create graphics and basically help tend the site. It's work I enjoy very much. I love playing games of all kinds, but adventure and RPGs are my favorites (particularly scary/dark/unsettling ones). At the top of my list are The Cat Lady, The Longest Journey, Dreamfall, Still Life (first one only), Scratches and Culpa Innata. I'm a dyed-in-the-wool recluse and prefer the company of animals, hardware and ghosts to human beings (no offense). And no bio would be complete without my saying that I do NOT care for phones of ANY sort. Further, I think Dell computers are garbage and that Microsoft has become megalomaniacal.
