Reviewer’s Note: Bugsnax's main campaign takes about 7 hours to complete.
The additional content in The Isle of Bigsnax takes 3 to 4 hours to complete.

If you have played Bugsnax before on PlayStation or PC on the Epic Games Store,
we unfortunately won't be able to unlock the new content ahead of April 28th.

The Isle of Bigsnax's main campaign includes 3 to 4 hours of new story content - with Yuri Lowenthal, Casey Mongillo, Debra Wilson, and Haviland Stillwell returning to voice their respective grumpuses - and new exciting Bugsnax and mysteries to discover. Players will find even more to do on the main island of the original game with new mail quests from the grumpuses to complete, hats to acquire for your favorite snax, and your very own hut to decorate and call home! 
iam8bit will also soon be delivering Bugsnax's delicious soundtrack on vinyl in a special collection. This super-sized two-disc LP includes 25 tracks from composer Seth Parker, stamped on vinyl with drool-worthy colorways. More Bugsnax vinyl tidbits are coming later this year, and you can sign up here to get updates.

About Bugsnax

Bugsnax takes you on a journey to Snaktooth Island, home of the legendary half-bug half-snack creatures, Bugsnax.

Invited by intrepid explorer Elizabert Megafig, you arrive to discover your host nowhere to be found, her camp in shambles, and her followers scattered across the island alone... and hungry! It's up to you to solve the mysteries of Snaktooth Island: What happened to Lizbert? What are Bugsnax and where do they come from? But most of all, why do they taste SO GOOD?

  • Embark on a Tasty Quest! Explore the diverse biomes of Snaktooth Island to track down and reunite the inhabitants of Snaxburg.
  • Feed Somebody and You'll See, We Are Whatever We Eat! Stuff your new friends with Bugsnax to customize them with countless new looks.
