Bugsnax is an unique, first person indie game developed by YoungHorses.
It is available for the following platforms:
- Microsoft Windows
- PlayStation 4
- PlayStation 5
- Nintendo Switch
- Xbox One
- Xbox Series X/S
You play as an unnamed reporter who as been invited to Snaktooth island, inhabited by the titular Bugsnax. Upon his arrival, the reporter learns that Lizbert, who invited him, to the island has gone missing.
Bugsnax plays in the first-person perspective, and has a vibrant, and cute art-style. Everything from the NPCs, to the world around you, is eye catching, and often had me finding myself gushing over how cute everything around me was.
Each character has their own unique personality, nobody feels the same, and I often found myself drawn to their fun, and quirky natures. You feel a real sense of community around them.
The gameplay is fun, and fair. The challenge rises fairly as you continue through the game, and learn how the various ways that certain Bugsnax need to be captured.
The game caters to a variety of play styles. If you want a short, but fun experience, you can play the main missions, and reach the end. For the collectible crowd, there are side quests, and plenty of Bugsnax to keep you entertained.
Do I Recommend This Title?
I believe that if you’re after a unique experience, or even a palette cleanse, Bugsnax is the title for you.
It’s fun, it’s goofy, and has fun little Easter eggs worth tracking down. I’ve shown some in this post’s featured images.
I am genuinely hoping that a sequel will be coming down the road.
