User Descriptions

In the game, players explore a mysterious island and attempt to find and capture the eponymous half-bug-half-snack creatures. Once captured, the Bugsnax can be fed to the local Grumpuses, which transforms their bodies based on the properties of whatever Bugsnak they eat. Players control a nameless newspaper journalist, who one day receives a film strip in the mail from Lizbert Megafig, a disgraced explorer. Lizbert details the mysterious Snaktooth Island, inhabited by creatures called Bugsnax who are "half bug and half snack", and encourages the journalist to come to the island and document them for the world to see. Intrigued, the journalist makes their way onto the island, only to discover from Lizbert's assistant Filbo Fiddlepie that she has gone missing, and all the other Grumpuses that joined her on her expedition have scattered. Filbo requests that the journalist help him bring the others back to their makeshift home of Snaxburg so that they might band together and find out what happened to Lizbert. The journalist proceeds to return the Grumpuses to Snaxburg, one by one. Wiggle Wigglebottom, a banjo-playing singer, believes that the "Queen of Bugsnax" is planning to eat the Grumpuses. After the journalist manages to bring all residents back to Snaxburg, a volcano erupts, triggering an earthquake that destroys the village. They are soon joined by Eggabell Batternugget, the village nurse and Lizbert's partner, who leads the journalist and Filbo to Lizbert's location. She reveals that Bugsnax are actually parasites that eventually transform anyone who regularly consumes them into more Bugsnax, and urges the group to flee the island while she attempts to keep the Bugsnax under control as their queen. After fending off the Snax, the journalist, Filbo, and any surviving villagers leave the island on a balloon ship. After returning to the mainland, Filbo stays with the journalist and acts as a witness for their story, in which they intentionally omit any mention of Bugsnax. Filbo then decides to run for Mayor, asking the journalist's help. Saving every Grumpus during the finale unlocks an alternate credits sequence, which reveals that Lizbert and Eggabell have been de-transformed, and a post-credits scene.
