an adventure in squirrel surveillance
by Joon, Pol, Muutsch & Char

Gear up your caravan, spread out your map and head for the depths of Melmoth Forest, where you’ll track the movements of native squirrels.

Where do they go? What do they do? And why is it that they behave so strangely? Explore the forest. Record the squirrels. Report your findings… and uncover the secret at the very heart of the forest.

NUTS is a narrative surveillance adventure developed with a bold visual style. We are currently in active development. Watch our devlogs on Youtube or subscribe to our mailing list below for occasional updates!

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 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.

Gear up

Learn how to use your new video equipment to record squirrel activity in the forest. Earn new cameras, tripods and sensors through completing missions. Adapt and augment your gear to optimise your workflow and create new surveillance strategies.


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 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 back at the university. Between the two of you, maybe you can figure out what’s really going on?
