It’s all fun and games until your arm turns into a hotdog

The creators of Octodad have announced their follow-up, Bugsnax. It’s tough to say how the game will play, but the visuals look like a blend of Muppet films and Rare games.

The trailer opens with a strawberry coming to life, sprouting eyes and legs. Soon, an anthropomorphic hamburger skitters past. A furry creature sporting an adventurer’s hat munches on the living food, its appendages turning into fruit and curly fries. This silly (and slightly morbid) action is set to a sparkly pop song.

Bugsnax is scheduled for release in “holiday 2020.” And if you’ve never played Octodad, well, what are you waiting for?
