Hamburg, November 5, 2013. Starting today, players can explore the post-apocalyptic world of Journey of a Roach from the perspective of Jim, the cockroach. The point-and-click adventure by the Swiss developer team Koboldgames was created in cooperation with Daedalic Entertainment and tells the story of two cockroaches on a perilous journey to the surface of a remade world. On their way they make the acquaintance of lots of bizarre but funny insects.

Journey of a Roach is now available for PC and Mac on Steam, priced US$ 14.99 / £11.99/ €14.99/RUR 299. Local prices may vary. The Steam-version also includes the downloadable Soundtrack.

The Steam store link is http://store.steampowered.com/app/255300/?snr=1_7_15__13

The official game site is http://www.daedalic.de/joar/en/

About Journey of a Roach
Journey of a Roach, developed by the Swiss team of Koboldgames, in cooperation with Daedalic Entertainment, takes players to a post-apocalyptic world: Roach Jim and his pal Bud are out and about to find their way from a bomb shelter up to Earth's barren surface. Players solve classic point-and-click adventure game puzzles, however, certain challenges can be overcome by using the roach's special abilities: Jim and Bud can crawl up walls and ceilings, as well as climb items.

Players use the third-insect-perspective to guide Jim and Bud through the 3D comic world. There are no written or spoken dialogues in Journey of a Roach, as the insects are using their very own, easily understandable sign language.

Title: Journey of a Roach

This is probably a clever and humorous game but I just can't wrap my head around playing as a roach. I never played Bad Mojo either. When I think of roaches I think of getting out the Bug Spray.

Bad Mojo must be played by all adventure fans. Some unique "perspectives" to say the least.
Just started this one and will let you know how it goes.

Forget everything you ever thought about cockroaches and get this game! I got it in the Humble Bundle Sale and haven't had this much fun in a long time. I love my little roach - he's so sweet!

Can you think of it not as a cockroach?
Maybe as a mutant ladybug?

With the most beautiful green eyes ever. And all he wants to do is have fun with his friend with the beautiful blue eyes and find the daisy and take care of it forever and forever.
