Bugsnax Developers Haven't Finished Working on The Game Yet
It looks like the story of Bugsnax is set to continue.
Kinda bug and kinda snack, try to catch ’em in your trap… Those lyrics have undoubtedly been going over and over many people’s heads for the last few months. Kero Kero Bonito’s theme was one of the catchiest songs of the year and for fans who want more of the tune, and the game it’s for, Bugsnax, there’s good news.
In a recent interview with Kotaku’s Ash Parrish, Kevin Zuhn, senior creative director and writer on the game said: “We’re still figuring out what exactly we want to do post-release, but we’re definitely not done working on Bugsnax yet.” With the game ending on somewhat of a cliffhanger, Zuhn said: “I’d hate to leave that plot thread hanging forever!”
He wouldn’t confirm whether that future content would be part of downloadable content, or if it would be for a full sequel but it looks like somewhere down the line, the story of Bugsnax will be continued.
There will be some minor spoilers for the Bugsnax ending from here on out, so proceed with caution.
Zuhn also confirmed that the game’s ending, which is already pretty dark, could have been even darker saying that the cute little Bugsnax “were dangerous parasites” and initially “there was an even worse ending where the Grumpuses become snak-craving zombies that eat each other and then you.”
Leading up to the PS5 launch, Bugsnax was definitely a fan favourite. The cutesy nature, catchy theme and the clear inspirations from Viva Pinata and Pokemon Snap ensured the game was high on many players wishlists.
We enjoyed the game, which released as a free PS Plus title, and scored it an 8/10 in our official Bugsnax review. Our reviewer said: “Bugsnax is a fantastic follow-up to Young Horses’ Octodad: Dadliest Catch. It’s unlike any game released this year…” The game is available now on both the PS4 and PS5.
