An interview has revealed more about Bugsnax, the adorable anthropomorphic snack gathering game from Young Horses that was revealed during Sony’s PS5 conference last week.
In an interview with USGamer, Young Horses president Philip Tibitoski revealed the premise behind the game, and spoke about what you’ll actually get up to in the game when you go hands on.
“Bugsnax is a first-person adventure game where you play as a journalist who is sent a mysterious film from an adventurer named Elizabert Megafig,” Tibitoski told USGamer. “She says she’s found these things called Bugsnax, these half-snack half-bug creatures, and she wants you to come and document her discovery with her group of misfit followers. You go to the island, you find that she is nowhere to be found, and instead run into some of her followers.”
Players will then be asked to figure out what makes these mysterious Bugsnax tick by studying their behaviour and… “seeing what happens when they’re eaten.” It looks like we’re going to have to eat these adorable little friends. According to Tibitoski, characters in the game will change as they eat Bugsnax, “with their limbs and bodies turning into foods like curly fries, strawberries, or weenies.”
According to USGamer’s interview, the game has been inspired by Ape Escape, and you’ll also be able to hear the cry of each particular Bugsnak through the Dualsense controller. What a sauce-pot french fry crab sounds like is still anyone’s guess, mind you.
