OverviewOverview

Nuts is an adventure game where you play a rookie field researcher. You use your camera, caravan, GPS and map to investigate the depths of the enigmatic Melmoth Forest. As you study the local squirrel population you uncover a strange mystery.

Play develops through a series of challenges (surveillance, timing, and logic puzzles). You investigate the squirrels by placing cameras during the day, and watching the footage at night. What starts as a research mission develops into a mystery about the small animal's peculiar behaviour. While you investigate a more troubling narrative emerges. Are the squirrels conspiring against us? Why is the study so well funded? 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?

It's an unusual game not only because of the subject matter and beautiful washed-out visuals, but through the day-night rhythm of the investigation. Take your time to check all the footage and discover clues that link the evidence together.
