The game Bugsnax, in which players are tasked with discovering and catching the namesake half-bug, half-snack animals on the mysterious island of Snaktooth, is going to be made available on the iOS app store “this summer.”
The developer, Young Horses, states that it will support “a wide array of third party gamepads” in addition to the touch screen controllers that will be available when it is released.
Aside from that, there is not much new information on this planned release; however, the developer has promised that further specifics would be provided in the near future (such as a specific release date as opposed to the wide release window that we now have).
Following the Kardashians’ creepy lead.
Back in 2020, at the game’s first release, Eurogamer awarded Bugsnax with a Recommended label. At the time, our own Christian Donlan referred to the game as “a fascinating spin on creature collecting.”
“The real fun here is discovery and interpretation, two things that both require a little mystery,” he wrote. “The real fun here is discovering new things.” “In all seriousness, it would be beneficial for you to put down the book right now and go play it. You should go play some Bugsnax. It is not a spoiler to tell you that it is unquestionably worth the time that you put into it.
If you have already played Bugsnax and appreciated the somewhat eclectic flair it brought to your day, it is well worth your time to head over to Steam, where Young Horses is now giving away free copies of numerous of their titles. This includes the student edition of Octodad, which happens to be one of my personal favorites.
While we are discussing Octodad, I should mention that a new version of the game called Octodad: Deadliest Catch has just been released to Apple Arcade. This is one of the twenty games that have been added to the service today.
