quem diria que um pokemon de comida seria tao legal de jogar

Brilliant game, so much fun and so different to anything I had played before.

Bugsnax uses cute, instantly likable creature designs to pull you into a story that's way more mature than it lets on. Not in a graphic violence way, but rather in the conflicts between people on the edge of being too different to work together. In Bugsnax, you're constantly working to restore the peace, a fickle thing thats buckling under the weight of petty grievances. Uncovering the mystery at the heart of the island is a compelling journey, but it still plays second fiddle to the small interactions between characters. Everyone has a core of humanity buried somewhere beneath the antagonistic behavior, and it's in bringing that part out into the light that Bugsnax shines the brightest.

It would be disingenous to say that the story is all that this game has, but I definietly wasn't impressed with the core gameplay loop and how it ties into said story. The vast majority of quests is just the game forcing you to engage with the mechanics of a few certain Bugs that populate the local area, and mechanically speaking it doesn't have much to offer. Sure, there is lots of variety in how the bugs interact, but the deliberate nature of their positioning makes the act of catching them way more restrictive than it lets on. It's not all bad, the controls are fine and there is a nice relaxing feel to going through each area, but the game is definietly carried by its compelling plot and characters.

it was .. okay. i preordered this on epic games in 2020, & didn't vibe with it. it became a meme in my stream that i should play it because a lot of chat really liked it.

& it's still .. okay. i didn't like the gameplay- i had a feeling that eating bugsnax was bad so i didn't want to do the sidequests where they eat more.. so i just went to the end & the end fell so flat. like.. of course that was what was happening. i just feel so nothing because i knew where the story was going. i was told the side quests are were the story is good but i didn't feel compelled enough to do them. i'm sad .. because i wanted to like it.

A cute creature collector with a city builder. The characters are charming and the bugsnax are adorable. It's definitely worth giving a try if you can get it on sale!

Personagens e narrativa cativantes, voice acting sensacional, mecânicas de exploração e de "pesquisa" muito coesas - boas boss fights, mundo muito charmoso, belo horror cósmico. Excelente jogo.
