The first run with the German BETA
The beginning still feels a bit cut, because you are suddenly standing in a cave, but the further you play, the clearer it becomes as unnecessary a long journey through the lowlands would have been, the game is... not called 'The Long Journey Down'
The game solves all open questions and rounds off the whole story successfully. The puzzles are simple but not too easy, frustration should not occur for halfway experienced adventure games, the hints are well placed and since (to my knowledge) you don't have a hotspot button, you have to search the screen as before. The graphics has been polished up again, but jerky cutscenes still occur, causing sound and image to shift, and some sprites are also very blurry. Whoever had this problem in JD2 will also have it in JD3. Musically it is outstanding, it merges formally with the visual and can be acquired vie Bandcamp, more information at the end of the game.
