About NUTS

About this game

Gear up your research caravan, boot up your GPS, spread out your map and head for the depths of Melmoth Forest. As a rookie field researcher, you’ll place cameras during the day, and watch the footage at night, tracking the movements of a scurry of squirrels.

Where do they hide their nuts? What puzzling routes do they take? And why do they behave so strangely?

INCLUDES:

  • Gameplay based on surveillance and tracking
  • An immersive story with full voice acting
  • Bold visuals and foley sound effects envelop the player in a vibrant forest

GET TO WORK

You are a tiny cog in the ever-grinding machinery of Viago University’s research efforts. As a recent graduate, you’ve been sent on assignment to live alone in a dinky caravan in Melmoth Forest. Your job? To figure out exactly where the native squirrel's nest is. But the longer you spend in the forest, the stranger things begin to seem.

ARRANGE YOUR CAMERAS

Each day, your mission briefing will give you a starting point, but it’ll be on you to determine the optimal layout for your equipment through trial and error. Explore the wonders and mysteries of the enigmatic Melmoth Forest at your ease during the daytime, until night falls…

ANALYZE YOUR FOOTAGE

… when you can review all the content you captured in your DIY control center. Comb your footage for the information needed to complete your mission and send proof to your boss Dr. Nina Scholz back at the research institute. With each new day, things get weirder and weirder. But with both of you working on the case, maybe you can figure out what’s really going on.

A sweet and short (<4 hrs to 100%) mystery game with interesting game mechanics. You play as a researcher who sets up cameras to observe the behavior of squirrels in a forest. You have to adjust the camera angles and positions to capture the best footage and then analyze it on your TV screen. The game has a minimalist but charming art style and a relaxing soundtrack that fits the mood. The story unfolds gradually as you discover more clues and secrets about the squirrels and the forest. The game is not very challenging but it is engaging and satisfying to see your progress. If you are looking for a unique and cozy game experience, NUTS is a great choice.

A very unique, short excursion where you use photography to solve some spatial puzzles, while getting embroiled in a surprisingly thrilling plot of environmental destruction and sentient squirrels.
