Heres some info I pulled off a site.

What would happen if you were suddenly turned into a cockroach? How would the familiar, everyday objects of your remembered world now appear? How would you manipulate even simple items like switches that are now bigger than yourself? And wouldn't you now regret putting down all those roach baits? Well, in Bad Mojo (undoubtedly inspired by Franz Kafka's short story, Metamorphosis) you have the chance to find out.

As an introduction to the game you are treated to a video sequence of Roger Samms in his dingy room above Eddie's seedy waterfront bar. Roger is a bit of a sad case who thinks like a cockroach and imagines the whole world is against him, but now all that is about to change. Roger has somehow got a case full of money, his bags are packed and he is about to skip to Mexico to enjoy his ill-gotten gains. After an altercation with Eddie, his landlord, he remembers the mysterious locket his mother left to him and, picking it up, he is suddenly transformed by bad mojo (literally, bad magic) into a cockroach.

The game proper begins in the basement with you controlling the movements of Roger the roach and you must navigate your way around a filthy, cockroach and rat infested environment to eventually find a way of becoming Roger the man again. In so doing you will learn, via a series of video sequences and written documents, about Roger's life, how he got his money and who his parents were. You will need to watch the video sequences carefully as these will provide clues not only to the story, but also to solving the puzzles along the way.
