  • Discover, hunt, and capture all 100 different species of Bugsnax using a variety of contraptions and bait!
  • Explore the diverse biomes of Snaktooth Island to track down and reunite the inhabitants of Snaxburg.
  • Follow every lead to learn more about Lizbert's band of misfits and the mysteries of Snaktooth Island.
  • Stuff your new friends with Bugsnax to customize them with countless new looks.


Bugsnax is played from a first-person perspective. The player controls an unnamed journalist who arrives on Snaktooth Island, and is tasked with finding the various other characters on the island, convincing them to return to Snaxburg, and interview them in order to discover what happened to Elizabert Megafig, organizer of the expedition.

In order to achieve this, the player must capture Bugsnax. This is done using a variety of devices, each with their own effects. Observing the behavior and personality of each Bugsnak is the key to determining what trap, combination of traps, or even other Bugsnak may be needed to capture it. Captured Bugsnax can be fed to other characters to customize their appearances.
