Bugsnax is an adventure video game developed by independent game studio Young Horses. In the game, players explore a mysterious island and attempt to find and capture the eponymous half-bug-half-snack creatures. The game was unveiled via an announcement trailer shown during Sony’s PlayStation 5 livestreamed reveal event on June 11, 2020. British indie pop band Kero Kero Bonito performed the game’s theme song, which was featured in the announcement trailer. The game was released on November 12, 2020 for the PlayStation 5, PlayStation 4, Microsoft Windows, and macOS.
Players control a newspaper reporter, who one day receives a film strip in the mail from Lizbert Megafig, a disgraced explorer. Lizbert details the mysterious Snaktooth Island, inhabited by creatures called Bugsnax who are “half bug and half snack”, and encourages the reporter to come to the island and document them for the world to see. Intrigued, the reporter makes their way onto the island, only to discover from Lizbert’s assistant Filbo Fiddlepie that she has gone missing, and all the other Grumpuses that joined her on her expedition have scattered. Filbo requests that the journalist help him bring the others back to their makeshift home of Snaxburg so that they might band together and find out what happened to Lizbert.
Bugsnax is a puzzle-adventure packed full of charm, mystery and a surprising amount of emotional depth.
It’s got well-observed characters and some genuinely weird moments, but the actual bug hunting isn’t much fun.
Bugsnax makes you feel like a delicious snack. It’s a game I could not put down because the combat is so good. The world is fun to explore and the stories it has to tell are rich and compelling. And I’m already anxiously awaiting a sequel. Definitely the best souls-like game on the market.
