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.

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.
