About

Bugsnax is a first-person adventure game developed by Young Horses for Windows, PlayStation 4 and PlayStation 5. The game is set on a fictional island called “Snaktooth Island” that’s home to creatures comprised of various foods (half bug, half snack) where the player controls a journalist sent to document and discover the strange land and its inhabitants. Bugsnax was announced in June 2020 during Sony’s reveal of the PS5 and released on November 11th, 2020. On April 12th, 2022, as part of The Isle of Bigsnax update, the game was also released on Steam, Xbox and Switch.

History

On June 11th, 2020, Bugsnax was announced during Sony’s "The Future of Gaming Show" that unveiled the upcoming PS5 console. The announcement trailer was uploaded to YouTube[1] that same day (seen below) and received over 433,000 views, 11,000 likes, 5,000 dislikes and 3,100 comments.



Shortly after, Bugsnax[2] unveiled additional details about the game on its website, including some of the expected features:

“Bugsnax takes you on a whimsical adventure to Snaktooth Island, home of the legendary half-bug half-snack creatures, Bugsnax. Invited by intrepid explorer Elizabert Megafig, you arrive to discover your host nowhere to be found, her camp in shambles, and her followers scattered across the island alone… and hungry! It's up to you to solve the mysteries of Snaktooth Island: What happened to Lizbert? What are Bugsnax and where do they come from? But most of all, why do they taste SO GOOD?”


AYOR

According to the official site, players will be able to discover, hunt and capture 100 kinds of Bugsnax species using a variety of items while they explore biomes and attempt to reunite the inhabitants of a town called “Snaxburg.” By capturing various creatures, players can use their elements to customize NPCs with new looks as they attempt to unravel the mystery of the missing explorer Elizabert Megafig.

Online Presence

Quite the weird premise about eating something that mutates you, and no one gives a shit. Hang on I'm predicting something…. There's gonna be someone named Richard… A scientist who ate cucumber creatures… And later on he became a pickle. Funniest shit I've seen.

I'm in it for the promise of weird stuff happening. The media that i have been observing hints towards a darker premise underneath the games innocent looking aesthetic and gameplay.

And I'm a sucker for that kind of thing, reminds me of Pikmin.
