Meet the voice cast of Bugsnax, launching on PS5 and PS4 November 12

Hey snak fans, I’m Kevin Zuhn, Creative Director at Young Horses. Today I’m excited to announce that Bugsnax will be available for PS4 and PS5 on November 12 with the launch of the new console!

I’m also very excited to talk a bit about our journey into finding the amazing voice cast of Bugsnax! We knew early on that we wanted a fully voiced game to truly get across all the things that make our characters funny, unique, and tragically relatable. 

On Octodad: Dadliest Catch we handled auditions and voice direction ourselves, but Bugsnax was shaping up to be much bigger in scope with a cast of at least 15! Stumbling through the process, we realized that we lacked experience. We enlisted the help of Brightskull for casting, voice directing, and even audio mastering. With their help, we put together audition sides that captured each character’s most iconic lines, across the broadest spectrum of emotion.

We were overjoyed (and overwhelmed) to get thousands of auditions, hundreds per character! After weeks of re-listening, and passionate internal debates (our usual process), we arrived at our awesome cast. We’re thrilled to be working with them, and even more thrilled to finally introduce them to you in the video below.
