Not sure if this should go in Road To Gold since it's a rerelease, but the 1996 cockroach adventure game Bad Mojo is going to be rereleased this November.  Now I challenge everyone to come up with a news story more bizarre than this one slywink

Sepiche, you are a day late and a dollar short.  Tongue

So, Bad Mojo. I remember the game box and thinking how strange it seemed. Was it any good the first time around?

I played through part of it back in the day when I worked at a game shop.  It was a pretty decent adventure game with a great, if disguting, premise.  Karma's a bitch.

Bad Mojo was a great game for its time.  I was fairly new to PC gaming at the time and I remember being fascinated by the premise.  

Fortunately I found a walkthru or it would have gone back on my shelf without closure.  You guessed it....walk to this pile of garbage......crawl thru this sewer pipe........


A pretty creepy walkthru as I remember.  RAID!!!!!

This is great news.  I've been wanting a rerelease or a sequel for this for a long time.  I also was new to pc gaming, so I may be looking at this game through rose colored glasses for the past 8 or so years but I remember really liking it, and more important liking how creeped out it made me as I played it.  I slugged through it to the end without a walkthrough, there were some tricky parts but perseverance came through for me.

Gameplay is very simple just the 4 arrow keys to move around- hey you're a cockroach did you expect guns and hand to hand combat?  The environments are all suitably gross and dangerous- and many a death made me shiver.  The story as I remember it wasn't that great, but merely sufficient.  But the games really about surviving while getting from point A to point B while grossing you out.

I was working at Acclaim when we released that title, it was a brillantly quirky title that Acclaim put ZERO money behind at that time.

This game stands out as an overlooked gem.  Kind of had a David Lynch movie feel to me...which, in my opinion, is a good thing.  Very strange game.  I would love to play it again.  Do you know if it has been enhanced in any way.  At the time, I remember it being pretty up to date with technology, but that was along time ago.  If I had to put a date to it, I would say around 1995?

From reading about it, it sounds like the only modifications made were to make the in game movies better quality, that's it. I thought they would rework the tech behind the game to bring up to date but it sure sounds like that's not the case. Oh well.
