The Simpsons: Bug Squad! is an unreleased tech demo for the Sega Dreamcast. The game was developed by Red Lemon Studios for Fox Interactive. Whilst the game is unreleased, the date on the title screen suggests it was developed in 2000.


On December 19, 2020, a user called sreak on the Dreamcast-talk forums released the contents of a broken DevKit via the forum. Among the contents was a game called The Simpsons: Bug Squad!. The game was then made to run by a user called Megavolt85, and was then played by the YouTube channel DreamcasticChannel. The game is incomplete and very bare bones, seeming to be a tech demo.[1]

Despite taking place in the Simpsons' house, the player character is a bug creature that isn't anything to do with the Simpsons universe.

Red Lemon Studios founder Andy Campbell stated that the demo was pitched to Fox as both a game and production tool for the TV show. It was never commissioned, so therefore never officially entered development.[2]


Gameplay seems to be very simplistic. You play as a bug jumping and gliding around the Simpson house. The kitchen and living room are explorable, whilst the garden can bee seen outside the windows. Homer walks around the house and Bart walks around the garden, although they don't interact with the player character at all.[3]

The game also has a free cam mode to let you look around the house and outside in the garden.[4]
