Cockroaches can survive everything, even a nuclear war. And Daedalic Entertainment’s upcoming 3D adventure game Journey of a Roach tells the story of a roach in just that situation.
Journey of a Roach is developed by the Swiss team of Koboldgames in co-operation with Daedalic Entertainment. Players will visit a sarcastic, post-apocalyptic world where Roach Jim and his sidekick Bud are out and about to find their way from a deserted vault to the Earth’s surface. Players must steer them through classic point & click adventure game puzzles. Certain challenges can be overcome by using the roach’s natural abilities. Being roaches, Jim and Bud have the ability to crawl up walls and on ceilings, as well as on items.
But roaches can’t speak either so there will be no written or spoken dialogue in Journey of a Roach. Insects use their very own, easily understandable signal language.
Koboldgames and Daedalic Entertainment have scheduled Journey of a Roach for release in November 2013, for PC and Mac.
