From Press Release:
SASKATOON, JANUARY 18th, 2021 – Publisher Noodlecake and the tight-knit indie team behind the visually striking, single-player adventure NUTS are excited to announce that it will be releasing on Nintendo Switch and Steam on February 4th for $19.99 USD / €19.99 / £ 17.99 with a 15% launch discount, following its initial release on Apple Arcade on January 22nd.
“We grew NUTS into a game from a series of design experiments, and feel lucky that we were able to chase those into a finished game. All along, what has driven us to make this game is love and mischief. And we hope that all NUTS players will experience the joyful hum of our team as they play our game. The wonder of a new world. The peace of a quiet life. The joy of chasing squirrels. And the ever-present knowledge that out there in the real world, beyond our cozy bubbles, all is certainly not as it seems…” says Joon Van Hove, a member of NUTS‘ development team.
NUTS is a single-player squirrel surveillance mystery set in the remote depths of the Melmoth Forest. As a rookie field researcher, you’ll carefully 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?
- Experiment to determine the optimal layout for your observation equipment and capture the behaviors of Melmoth’s squirrels.
- Enjoy an intimate, immersive story with full voice acting.
- Take in the bold visuals and foley sound effects that envelop you in a vibrant forest.
Get to Work
You’re a tiny cog in the ever-grinding machinery of Viago University’s research efforts. You’ve been sent on assignment to live alone in a dinky caravan in Melmoth Forest. Your job? To figure out where the native squirrels nest and what mysterious business they get up to.
Arrange Your Cameras
Your mission briefing will give you a starting point, but it’ll be on you to determine the optimal layout for your equipment through experimentation. Explore the wonders and mysteries of the enigmatic Melmoth Forest at your ease during daytime.
Analyze Your Footage
When night falls, it’s time to review all of the content you captured in your DIY control center. Comb your footage for the information needed to complete your mission and send proof back to the research institute. Can you figure out what’s really going on?
