It's often said that cockroaches stand a better chance than humans to survive an
apocalypse, and following that theme, Daedalic Entertainment announces
Journey of a Roach
, an upcoming adventure game from developer Koboldgames
putting the player in the role of a survivalist roach. This is expected for
release for Windows and OS X this November, and in the meantime we have
a batch of
and the official announcement:
Hamburg, July 29th, 2013 –
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.
