Bugsnax bound for Steam in 2022; developers tease “juicy surprises”

Bugsnax is making its way to Steam more than a year after it was launched on PlayStation and the Epic Games Store. Developers Young Horses have confirmed the game is coming to Valve’s PC gaming store “sometime next year.” The game is currently available for players to wishlist on Steam, with a release date of “2022.”

Bugsnax, a Lovecraftian horror story hiding inside a children’s game about cute food/animal hybrids, was first revealed at the PlayStation 5 reveal event in June 2020, and released for PlayStation 5, PlayStation 4, Mac, and PC via the Epic Games Store in November 2020. Despite the more creepy elements of the premise — that you are literally what you eat — it’s one of the better kid’s games you can play on the PS5.

This would make yet another PlayStation title that has come to Steam in the last few years. Sony has been making more and more of a push to extend the lifespan of its titles by getting them on the Steam library. Other examples are Days Gone, Horizon Zero Dawn, Death Stranding, and Detroit Become Human. Bugsnax technically doesn’t fall into the exact same category, as it’s always been available on the PC — the Epic Store specifically. But it’s still a PlayStation title that’s making its way to Steam, and that opens it up to many gamers who might not otherwise have enjoyed it.

Developers Young Horses have also implied that this isn’t the only Bugsnax news on the way, with creative director Kevin Zuhn saying, “We’ll have some meaty news and a few juicy surprises to get people talkin’ bout Bugsnax again later this year.” Now the song is stuck in your head too, isn’t it?
