Bugsnax is a PS5 launch game set on an island populated by edible creatures inspired by Pokemon and Apocalypse Now. Tony and Phil explain what the hell that actually means.
When Bugsnax debuted during the Sony PS5 reveal event, we had lots of questions. What are these little edible creatures? What’s happening on this island? Why is the theme song so damn catchy?
We don’t have all the answers yet, but we did get some hands-on time with the game, and it might be darker than its cute look suggests. Tony and Phil discuss this in the video above, talking about the game’s influences, voice talent, and more.
Bugsnax releases for PS5, PS4, and PC on November 12. It joins the growing list of confirmed PS5 launch games.
