Nuclear war, post-apocalypse, barren and lifeless wastelands. Lifeless? Not so much! Mutated insects have made their home in a bomb shelter and they're set on exploring the world. Let this point&click adventure welcome you to a hilariously bizarre end-of-times world and join the roaches Jim and Bud on their journey to the surface.

Journey of a Roach tells the story of two roach-buddies, who want nothing but to see the surface world. On their way up, they meet all kinds of bizarre and ludicrous insects inhabiting the post-apocalyptic Earth. In atmospheric 3D point&click adventure style you'll take control of Jim the roach through the bomb shelter, effortlessly crawling your way along walls and ceilings. This innovative and dynamic game mechanic creates opportunities for a wholly new puzzle design. Fondly designed speech balloons offer an unconventional new dialogue experience and the soundtrack delivers and atmospheric, post-apocalyptic mood.
