Bad Mojo Scurries Back To The Mac
6:00 AM | Jean-Luc Dinsdale | Comment on this story

Break out the insecticide and call the exterminator - Got Game Entertainment, publishers of the Myst-inspired graphical adventure games RHEM and Alida, have announced that they're bringing the bug-infested, graphical adventure game Bad Mojo back to the Mac.

Originally hatched in 1996 under the gleeful gaze of publishers Pulse Entertainment, Bad Mojo tells the quirky, Kafka-esque story of mad scientist and entomologist Roger Samms, who, one morning, wakes up to find that he's been temporarily turned into... a cockroach. Players are entrusted with navigating the reborn insect back to safety along a path of discovery across the giant obstacle course that has become his own apartment building.

Widely praised and honored with numerous awards at its original release, the cult classic roach game features a poignant story told through unforgettable visuals, numerous puzzles, and the natural intrigue of seeing the world, or at least a crummy tenement, from a third person, or rather, third insect's point of view.

The new version of the game is being revamped in order to take advantage of today's new computing technology. According to Howard Horowitz, President of Got Game Entertainment:

Through a series of events almost as unique as the game, Got Game had the good fortune to rediscover this cult classic. Working with the original developers, we are updating the technology and adding special bonus features for an even fresher roach game.
Bad Mojo is currently scheduled to be unleashed to the public as a hybrid Mac/PC title this November. Check out the publisher's website by clicking on the link below, and stay tuned to IMG as we bring you more news regarding the icky new adventure.
