About This Game

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.

Journey of a Roach tells the story of two roach-buddies, who want nothing but see the surface world.
On their way up, they meet all kinds of bizarre and ludicrous insects inhabiting the post-apocalyptic earth.

This innovative and dynamic game mechanic creates opportunities for a wholly new puzzle design. Fondly designed speechballoons offer an unconventional new dialogue experience and the soundtrack delivers and atmospheric, post-apocalyptic mood.

I cant believe it. A journey of a roach that is so interesting and likeable. Sure its Daedalic that publish it and even when it has not the jokes of Deponia, it has its own unique funny style, cute little riddles, gimmicks to find like worms, cakes that aren´t a lie (Portal), makeable speedrun where you can test you skills or a challenge like the Rock movie (Sean Connery, Nicolas Cage) dont get hit from the fire ventilators). For me it makes fun, its short but the quality is nice, at the moment you can see a happy birthday version till 30 november. Take a look, give it a chance and hopefully enjoy it. Thanks for reading. Have a happy day. I give this game personal 82% (only because the game lenght i cant get enough from the gameplay so i hope you support the game and maybe we get a 2nd part in some years). Bye

This is a very well made and extremely cute game about a roach friendship. :)

If you like point-and-click adventure games you might want to check this game out, but let me say this: Don't buy it for the full price, because you're in for a disappointment (given that you're not made out of money). As cute as it is, it's also extremely short. I completed it in about 3~ hours and that's mostly because some of the puzzles took me a while to figure out (the game is completely non-verbal, you only get pictures to explain the puzzles).

a cute and funny but short point and click game, the graphics are 3D cartoon/comic style just like in deponia (no wonder this games is made by the same devs ) the music is funny and enjoyable , no voice acting ( a game about insects so dont be surprised :p ) ,gameplay is smooth ( WASD to move and the mouse to interact with objects ) the puzzles are easy to figure and solve but some of them are soo easy that you will miss them at the first try , didn't face any glitches or bugs .
the only thing i dont like about the games is the price ,the game is short (around 2h to complete and you can completed under 18 min if you're fast enough there is even an achievement for it ) and they are charging 14.99$ for it , in my opinion i think its too much (9.99 $ would be the best price for it) but good thing its on sale most of the times ( just like now its on sale for 1.49$ while i'm writing this review)
so grabe i on sale or in a bundle 7/10

Very funny, cute little game. I wish it was a bit longer, but in the end, I'm happy. Journey of a Roach will leave you feeling good and generally cheerful by the end. I reccomend it to anyone who likes a fair bit of puzzle and overall cuteness.
