“NUTS – A Surveillance Mystery” is a narrative surveillance adventure with a bold visual style. Made by indie developers Joon, Pol, Muuutsch, Char and Torfi in collaboration with Noodlecake Studios, “NUTS” is launching soon across the iPhone, iPad, Apple TV and Mac via Apple Arcade.

A narrative surveillance adventure

In this single-player surveillance mystery you’re tasked with recording the squirrels and reporting your findings to ultimately 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.

The game is scheduled to release on Steam in 2021.

Aside from gameplay based around surveillance and tracking, “NUTS” features an immersive story with voice acting, bold and cartoonish visuals and foley sound effects that will envelop you in a vibrant forest.

The key features include:

  • 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 – A Surveillance Mystery” will be launching soon across the iPhone, iPad, Apple TV and Mac on Apple Arcade.
