Journey of a Roach is set after the nuclear apocalypse - and as it is common believe, only the smaller species like roaches or spiders survived. The player takes the role of the roaches Bud and Jim which accidentally cut off his way back to their home while making a trip to the top. This is the beginning point of their journey.

The game world is presented similar to Alone in the Dark: the environments are three-dimensional rooms with fixed camera perspectives and Bud can freely move around while being directly controlled. Of course Bud can also walk on walls and ceilings. However, interaction with items and people use a traditional point & click system. All animals Bud meets have human traits but don't speak: Like in Machinarium, all conversations are pictures in speech bubbles. Puzzles are strictly inventory based, i.e. Bud collects items and used them with other items in the game world, and when stuck all interactive items can be highlighted by pressing a button.
