Noodlecake has announced that the visually-striking single-player squirrel surveillance mystery NUTS is out now on Nintendo Switch.
Set in the remote depths of the Melmoth Forest, as a rookie field researcher you must carefully place cameras during the day before waiting until nighttime to observe the movements of a scurry of squirrels.
With nothing as it seems, that will help you in your search for answers behind questions such as where do they hide their nuts? What puzzling routes do they take? And why do they behave so strangely?
“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,” explains developer Joon Van Hove.
“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…”
NUTS is now available on the Nintendo eShop for Nintendo Switch worldwide.
