Roaches are enemies only appeared in the Penumbra (Tech Demo). They did not appear in any Penumbra games, however. They are experimental animals created by The Archaic. Whether they are canonical or not is up for debate, as is the likelihood of their appearance in a future game.
They make large tuned hissing sound when near. They often bite the victim to death.
There is possibility that Roaches are infected by the Tuurngait. Roaches are mutated experimental animals created by The Archaic. Roach contains organs of a Rat and Bat, those two animals mutated into one being known as Roach. Archaic is experimenting not only animals but also humans - mutated humans known as Abomination (aka Hunter).
It is possible to kill them by throwing dynamite at them.
