If you’ve ever wanted a globetrotting insect as a pet, then Lucid Games’ latest PlayStation Vita application should have you smiling like a buccaneer in a biplane. The complimentary Travel Bug will allow you to rear your own adventurous creepy-crawly, and send it on a journey around the world via Near.

While your creature travels the globe, you’ll collect other players’ pets in a virtual net. Assuming you help those insects on their expedition, you’ll acquire Bugmiles, which reward you with new costumes and unlocks for your own audacious ant. Furthermore, every time you dispatch a creepy-crawly on its way, you’ll be forced to take a picture of it, creating a logbook of its voyage around the world.

Sounds amazing, huh? See for yourself in the trailer embedded below.
