Linux gamers can now delve into the post-apocalyptic world of Journey of a Roach. The point-and-click adventure created by the Swiss development team of Koboldgames and Daedalic Entertainment is now available for the Linux OS on Steam.
This comic-adventure takes players to an end-time spiced up with black humor: Jim the Roach and his sidekick Bud are making their way through a nuclear bomb shelter and try to reach the post-apocalyptic surface with the players’ help. They puzzle through classic adventure challenges but also utilize the special perks that come with being a roach, like crawling up and along ceilings and walls.
Journey of a Roach offers a three-dimensional world explored from the third-insect perspective. Journey of a Roach does perfectly fine without any spoken or written dialogue, since the little fellows communicate via an easily understandable sign and symbol language.
For its innovative gameplay and impressive visuals, Journey of a Roach was awarded the Swiss Selection Award in the ‘Games’ category by the Swiss Arts Council Pro Helvetia.
Journey of a Roach is now available on Steam for Linux, PC and Mac for $14.99.
