Cockroaches may be the most universally despised insect, but they make pretty good adventure game protagonists. Just ask Bad Mojo's Roger Samms. Or ask Daedalic Entertainment, who will be publishing Journey of a Roach late this year.
It's the end of the world as we know it, but naturally the indestructible roaches are still alive. Two such bugs, named Jim and Bud, have survived the apocalyptic nuclear war and are now "out and about to find their way from a deserted vault to the Earth’s surface." Helping them overcome the many puzzling obstacles in their path are their innate roach abilities, the "ability to crawl up walls and on ceilings, as well as on items."
Created by Swiss developer Koboldgames, Journey of a Roach takes players through a "sarcastic" 3D comic world entirely without words. There are "no written or spoken dialogues" anywhere in the game, as of course "the insects are using their very own, easily understandable signal language."
Journey of a Roach is currently on track for release sometime in November for PC and Mac.
