A downloadable game for Windows, macOS, and Linux

⚠This is the home of the 2018 NUTS public demo. The game is in active development as of 2019, but I want to leave the demo up here for posterity. I will no longer be posting builds to this page, and when the new game becomes available it will have a different home. ⚠

Thank you for your support and donations in the last 14 months, it has been the driving force for me to find a way to make this game. I plan to create a devlog, but have not started. Follow me on twitter or youtube for future updates!

NUTS (DEMO)

Find out where the squirrel keeps their stash!

You have 3 cameras, wired up to three TVs at your hideout. Each night, the squirrel leaves its home, goes to its stash, and returns home. You can place the cameras during daytime, and at night you can watch it run around. Can you find the tree that has the stash?

Instructions

  • WASD: Move
  • Click: Interact
  • E (at night): End the night early
  • E (near camera): Aim <-- this one's not obvious ⚠
  • F: Speed up time <-- use sparingly, you could miss the squirrel!

What we know about the squirrel

  • it lives in the orange tree
  • it takes the same route every night
  • it visits one other tree, this is where the stash is

Hints

  • start by putting your cameras around the orange tree
  • if you wait around near the stash tree, you can shake it 
  • be nice to the squirrel
  • you can leave the night-time early, by pressing [E]

absolutely no jumpscares ⚠
