Cockroaches And Spiders And Rats - Oh My!

Yes, looks like you'll have to.

You may be aware of ancient Kafka-esque freak-adventure Bad Mojo. It’s one of Jim’s favourite games to rant about, so I suspect we’ll have him talking about it eventually, but it basically involves “be”ing a cockroach.

They released a remastered edition, which is available on Digital Download, including some interview material with the developers about how they actually managed to get the startlingly realistic footage of assorted insects and cats.

At first we collected animals on our own. I remember a very early experiment we did with spiders on the blue screen. We found some spiders, brought them to the studio, put them on the blue screen… I remember the first spider vaporised instantly under the light. It was just gone in a puff of smoke. We had to adjust the lights and figure that out… we had a little bit of glass the spider was crawling on. That wasn’t going to work. Filming spiders isn’t going to work.

Wise words. And that’s just where it starts.

However you care to define this, it’s Bad Mojo.
