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.

An excellent Adventure game in the spirit of the old Monkey Island games in terms of its humor and style, but it reminds me most of Grim Fandango. The character designs were actually taken from African masks (like how Grim Fandango is a play on the Day of the Dead in Mexico). On that note, the art style is absolutely top notch, just unbelievably beautiful to look at. The music is great, and the puzzles are generally logical. Only twice did I have to look something up on line, and only one of those…
