We were rather taken with Bugsnax, PlayStation 5's cult hit launch game. Available free to PS Plus members, the quirky adventure game has been a success story for developer Young Horses. The team crafted something lovably silly but tinged with darkness, with a narrative that goes places you might not expect. In fact, some post-credits dialogue leaves the game on a tantalising cliffhanger, hinting at a bigger mystery.
Fortunately, it seems Young Horses isn't quite done with Bugsnax. Speaking to Kotaku, senior creative director and writer Kevin Zuhn says there's more to come. "We’re still figuring out what exactly we want to do post-release, but we’re definitely not done working on Bugsnax yet," he says. As for that aforementioned post-credits sequence, Zuhn says he'd "hate to leave that plot thread hanging forever".
Exactly how the game will continue is unknown. Whether it's some form of DLC or a full sequel, we're definitely curious to learn more about the enigmatic world of Bugsnax. Would you like to see more from this unusual series in the future? No spoilers please in the comments section below.

Ooo-ooo-oooh it's Bugsnax
Bugsnax was pretty good. One of those nice, atmospheric chill games I can throw on when I want to relax.
Spoiler but if you 100% the game before the end you’ll get a post credit scene that reveals there will 100% be a sequel.
You don't have to 100% it before the end. You can also 100% it after completing the story like I did.
Also I purposely kept my response vague
It was fun, my kids loved it, sometimes I thought the tone was a bit off when the game seemed aimed at younger gamers but was fine
@Voltan everyone's talking bout bugsnax!
I'm looking forward to more Bugsnax. Had a lot of fun playing the game.
This game glitched out during the first mission and haven’t been able to progress without starting a new game. Needless to say it’s no longer taking up space on my hard drive
I really enjoyed this game! Catching the flaming Cheesy Puff was a pain in the bum lol
Had an ok time with this. Struck me as a game that would be much better in VR, Paper Beast style.
@Robinsad Completely agree. Was going to play through this with my young daughter but there are things that didn’t need to be in there for a kids game. Was unfortunate.
Hi there fellow gamers.
This one was a pleasant surprise.
Started the game just to see what was all about and ended up with the Platinum trophy.
More Bugsnax sounds good to me.
And that end credit conversation just like the old MGS games was ace.
Cheers, stay safe and happy gaming to us all
This game deserves a sequel. Easily one of the most innovative and games to remember of last year. I still have the words 'Bunger' in my head and I platinumed it months ago!
Not sure what you're referring to but all my kids enjoyed playing this game. I can't think there is anything sensitive to kids in there.....unless you have an issue with same sex relationships.
I'm loving the game so far myself, definitely interested in DLC or a sequel.
The bugsnax cult will return!
