Bugsnax State of Play Gameplay Trailer

Young Horses have revealed a new gameplay trailer for Bugsnax during PlayStation’s State of Play livestream.

As previously reported, the game is a narrative-driven adventure. The player is a journalist invited by disgraced explorer Elizabert Megafig to uncover the mysteries of Snaktooth Island- home of the titular Bugsnax; half-bug, half-snack.

Players can help out the residence of the island, usually involving capturing or feeding them Bugsnax. Feeding the NPCs the Bugsnax can cause them to mutate into new forms, taking on food-like properties themselves.

You can find the gameplay trailer below.
