Bugsnax is a first-person adventure game. Players try to use various devices to find and capture different kinds of Bugsnax on the rampant Snaktooth island. More than 100 Bugsnak species are available for capture. After the capture, Bugsnax can be fed to the local grouse, which will change its body according to the characteristics of the Bugsnak eaten.
The player controls an anonymous newspaper reporter. One day, he received a film tape from an email from an unknown explorer Lizbert Megafig. Lizbert gave a detailed introduction to the mysterious Snaktooth island, which is inhabited by creatures called Bugsnax, which are “half bugs and half snacks”, and encouraged reporters to come to the island and record for the world to visit .
The reporter was very interested in this, but from Lisbert’s assistant Filbo Fiddlepie, she found out that she was missing and all the other groups that joined her were scattered. Filbo asked the journalists to help him bring others back to their temporary residence in Snaxburg, so that they could get together and find out what happened to Lisbert.
The reporter continued to return the grumpy people to Snarksburg. However, grumpy people often quarrel with each other, and each of them has a specific problem in their lives that they think can be solved by eating Bugsnax. Especially two grumpy people-Snorpy Fizzlebean and Shelda Woolbag-think there is a secret conspiracy behind the island. Snorpy believes that “Grumpinati” is controlling Bugsnax, and Shelda warns of harmful “toxins.” One night, Snaxburg was attacked and signs appeared to warn its residents to leave the island. Swing singer Wigglebottom believes that “Queen Bugsnax” is planning to eat the grumpy people.

After the reporter managed to bring all the residents back to Snasburg, a volcano erupted, causing an earthquake and destroying the village. Soon after, Lisbert’s partner Eggabell Batternugget also joined, and the latter led the reporter and Philber to Lisbert’s residence. After arriving at their destination, they discovered that Lizbert had mutated into a giant creature composed of various Bugsnax.
She revealed that Busnaxes are actually parasites that will eventually turn anyone who regularly consumes them into more Busnaxes, and urged the group to leave the island. Eggabell stays behind, while Filbo and the reporter return to Snaxburg, and Snaxburg is now being attacked by various Bugsnax. After boycotting Snax, reporter Filbo and all the surviving villagers left the island in a hot air balloon.
After returning to the mainland, Filbo stayed with the journalists and served as a witness to their story. In the story, they deliberately omitted Bugsnax. Their supervisor, Clumby, was very impressed with the story, but fired the reporter because she did not expect them to return. Then Filpo decided to run for mayor and asked reporters for help.
In a secret ending, Clumby can be heard talking to a mysterious voice-Grumpinati. The two believed that journalists were covering up the facts and decided to pay close attention to them. At the same time, a Bugsnak was found hiding on the ship.
