Cockroaches do survive everything, even a nuclear war. This is what the story and gameplay of Daedalic Entertainment’s upcoming 3D adventure videogame Journey of a Roach are about, as the player is cast as an unlikely hero with a unique view of the world, both literally and figuratively.
Journey of a Roach, developed by the Swiss team of Koboldgames, in co-operation with Daedalic Entertainment, takes players to a sarcastic, post-apocalyptic world. Roach Jim and his sidekick Bud are out and about to find their way from a deserted vault to the Earth’s surface. Players steer them through classic point-n’-click puzzles. Certain challenges can be overcome by using the roach’s natural attributes: being roaches, Jim and Bud have the ability to crawl up walls and on ceilings, as well as on items.
Players must guide Jim and Bud through the 3D comic world in which there will be no written or spoken dialogue. In Journey of a Roach, players must use the insect signal language. Koboldgames and Daedalic Entertainment have scheduled Journey of a Roach for release in November 2013, for PC and Mac, and Electronic Theatre will keep you updated with all the latest details.
