Cockroaches do survive everything, even a nuclear war: This is what story and gameplay of Daedalic Entertainment’s upcoming 3D adventure game Journey of a Roach are about.
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 & click adventure game puzzles. Certain challenges can be overcome by using the roache’s natural features, though: Being roaches, Jim and Bud have the ability to crawl up walls and on ceilings, as well as on items.
Players use the third-insect-perspective to guide Jim and Bud through the 3D comic world. There will be no written or spoken dialogues in Journey of a Roach, by the way, as the insects are using their very own, easily understandable signal language.
Koboldgames and Daedalic Entertainment scheduled Journey of a Roach for release in November 2013, for PC and Mac
