You play a newspaper reporter exploring an island to write about the edible bugs. While there you discover that Megafig has gone missing. To solve the mystery you explore Snaktooth Island to trying capture different species of Bugsnax using a wide range of contraptions. Some use bait to lure Bugsnax creatures, others are traps that spring shut while others are a laser light for them to chase.
There are over 100 Bugsnak species to capture and eat, which can result in literally 1000's of transformation combinations. But you have to find the right contraptions and bait to outsmart each creature. This takes you on through the different locations that offer habitat to ever stranger animals.
"We are what we eat," says the narrator, and it seems with the apparent disappearance of the island ranger, that this might actually be true in this world. It's up to you to track down and reunite the inhabitants of Snaxburg.
