Journey of a Roach is the story of Jim and Bud, two mutated (cock)roaches in an underground bunker after a nuclear apocalypse. Mankind has been wiped off the planet, and the roaches are on their way up to explore the world.

Their climb to the surface involves a labyrinth of subterranean tunnels, pipes, walls, ceilings, obstacles, strange creatures and puzzles. Oh, and they communicate without speaking, which only makes sense, actually. If you’ve ever encountered a talking cockroach, you could have a problem.

You control Jim in this atmospheric 3D point-and-click adventure. Apparently, Bud controls Bud.

Journey of a Roach is an innovative and dynamic game that offers new puzzle designs and features. As mentioned, it offers a totally new dialog experience. And its impressive soundtrack delivers a mood worthy of the aftermath of a nuclear holocaust.

The game’s combination of unusual gameplay mechanics, farcical humor and cartoon-style environments offers a unique take on the point-and-click adventure genre.

I've been with JA in one capacity or other since 2003. I'm currently website administrator. I'm also a digital artist (my avatar is one of my creations). I write reviews and articles, create graphics and basically help tend the site. It's work I enjoy very much. I love playing games of all kinds, but adventure and RPGs are my favorites (particularly scary/dark/unsettling ones). At the top of my list are The Cat Lady, The Longest Journey, Dreamfall, Still Life (first one only), Scratches and Culpa Innata. I'm a dyed-in-the-wool recluse and prefer the company of animals, hardware and ghosts to human beings (no offense). And no bio would be complete without my saying that I do NOT care for phones of ANY sort. Further, I think Dell computers are garbage and that Microsoft has become megalomaniacal.
