So, let’s talk about Bugsnax. The reveal trailer at the PS5 showcase is weird, just as you’d expect from Young Horses, the makers of Octodad: Dadliest Catch.
This new trailer, showed at the August 2020 State Of Play, gives more context to the whimsical yet slightly horrifying adventure game. You play as a journalist on the hunt for the story of Bugsnax. Accepting the invite from Elizabert Megafig, you go to Snaktooth Island to investigate.
Bugsnax will be a first-person adventure where you help the local capture Bugsnax using bait and contraptions. You also be doing some journalistic stuff, like photographic all the unique half-bug half-snack creatures, as well as learning more about the mystery of Snaktooth Island.
All the gameplay shown in the trailer represents gameplay on PS5.
The monstrosity that is a giant, flapping pizza should give you chills. Or giggles. Or both.
Bugsnax will be out later this year, holiday 2020 for the PS4, PS5 and PC (Epic Games Store).
