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

I did not think I would enjoy game with roaches that much but this game surprised me. The idea was fun and story was entertaining and humorous. Puzzles were good and I really enjoyed walking on walls. Only downside was that this game was really short, I would have gladly played more of this strange adventure!

I really enjoyed Journey of a Roach! The story and the art were adorable. The puzzles were entertaining. It was a great all-around game. Nice and short. I liked playing it over and over until I perfected it. I consider this game a must-buy and highly recommend it. Who knew I'd be cheering for the success of two little roaches!

Funny, not overly difficult Point N Click with some nice twitches.
It's kinda short 3-4h but a bargain well worth the fun when it was on sale.

This game is really fun and interesting. It is casual and relax to play. Some puzzles are somewhat hard to solve but most of them are easy to get through. It is not a hard game at all, just a tip for those who want to play a difficult puzzle game. But still, I highly recommend this game since I had a really good time playing it.
