Publisher Noodlecake announced plans to bring NUTS to Switch, a game about spying on squirrels in the forest, and it is scheduled to release on February 4, 2020. Joon, Pol, Muuutsch, Char, & Torfi, the team behind the game, have created what is a quirky and interesting one about surveying a remote forest and figuring out the mystery of the tiny creatures within it.
You can check out the NUTS trailer below.
What is NUTS?
A single-player surveillance mystery set in a remote forest – record the squirrels, report your findings… and uncover the secret that the curious creatures are hiding.
Gear up your 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 around surveillance and tracking; an immersive story with full voice acting; and bold visuals and foley sound effects envelop the player in a vibrant forest
- 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 trial and error. Explore the wonders and mysteries of the enigmatic Melmoth Forest at your ease during daytime, until night falls…
- ANALYZE YOUR FOOTAGE
… when you can 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 to your boss Dr Nina Scholz back at the research institute. With both of you on the case, maybe you can figure out what’s really going on?
- GET TO WORK
You are 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.
NUTS looks to be a lot of fun and definitely a game to keep an eye out for. The game is available currently on the Nintendo Switch eShop to pre-order, and it will release on February 4, 2021 for $19.99USD.
