About Judy

As WP's managing editor, I edit review and preview articles, attempt to keep up with the frantic pace of Rainier's news posts, and keep our reviewers on deadline, which is akin to herding cats. When I have a moment to myself and don't have my nose in a book, I like to play action/RPG, adventure and platforming games.


'Bad Mojo' Goes the Way of Retail

by Judy on Dec. 9, 2004 @ 10:29 a.m. PST

Got Game Entertainment LLC today announced that its adventure game Bad Mojo, for PC and Mac, has begun shipping to retail across North America.

The unique adventure, which finds you in the curious role of a cockroach navigating the eerie and intricate world of a dilapidated San Francisco building, scurries onto retail shelves by this weekend, just in time for those who might be dreaming of things more deliciously disgusting than sugarplum fairies. If you survive your journey, creating makeshift bridges over deadly insect traps, fending off spiders with smoldering cigarette butts, dodging the perilous volcanic spew of a boiling pot of chili, and ultimately discovering the truth behind a sinister plot, you may never look at a roach the same way again.

Originally released in 1996, "Bad Mojo", a PC Computing MVP Award winner and Macworld Game Hall of Fame inductee, this "roach game" has evolved into a true cult classic, lauded by critics and fans alike. In this bizarre and unique tale, backed by an entrancing musical score, "mad scientist" entomologist Roger Samms has been temporarily turned into a cockroach, leading to gritty discovery and exploration that sucks you in with haunting visuals, and keeps you playing with a poignant story.

This "redux" version is updated for today's operating systems, and includes special bonus features such as an all new "making of" documentary with interviews and never before seen, behind the scenes footage, along with an exclusive "hints" section for each level, special movie commentary, and more.

"Bad Mojo" retails for $19.99 (USD) and is rated "T" for Teen by the ESRB for Blood and Mild Violence.
