Bugsnax Releases An All-New Super-Weird Gameplay Trailer

During today's State Of Play livestream, the folks at Young Horses decided to show us a new gameplay trailer for their upcoming title Bugsnax. Ever since the first trailer debuted at the PS5 reveal livestream, people have been freaking out over this game in a way that feels disturbing. Which is fine since its a game where apparently you are what you eat on a literal level. The latest trailer tries to explain more of the game through demonstrations, as it's basically a monster hunter game with a twist. But once you see the giant Pizza Moth flying in the sky, that's where things take another weird turn. There's clearly a dark side tot he game we're not seeing, but on the surface, it's trying to present itself as a wholesome muppet adventure where you eat other creatures and become them to a degree. Enjoy the trailer and the latest info from the devs.
