I’ve got the horses in the back as Young Horses announced that it’s currently developing the quirky game Bugsnax for PlayStation 5, PlayStation 4, and PC this holiday season. The game will have you control an eccentric species as you explore the mysteries of a place called Snaktooth Island.
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?
The reveal trailer for Bugsnax features the voices of Max Mittelman (One Punch Man) as “Filbo Fiddlepie”, Helen Sadler as intrepid explorer “Elizabert Megafig”, Tom Taylorson (voice of Octodad) as the Snax in the trailer, and an original track titled “It’s Bugsnax!” from British indie pop sensation Kero Kero Bonito.
The fully voice acted game, featuring over a dozen professional voice actors, carries all of the weirdness and quirkiness that anchored Octodad’s success in 2014. “We just love making weird stuff. It’s been tough staying silent all these years, and it brings us joy and relief (and dread) to finally show off Bugsnax!” – said Creative Director Kevin Zuhn with a single tear on his cheek. “It’s so much bigger and weirder than we ever could have imagined when we started. It surprises and delights us constantly and we hope it has the same effect on all of you.”
