We're still a couple of weeks away from the big screen premiere of The Nut Job, but licensee Cupcake Digital is giving us a chance to experience certain aspects of the film in advance via the release of a new app for the iOS, Android, Nook, and Kindle platforms.
The Nut Job app will be featuring an interactive story based on the film, which will put users in the shoes of protagonist Surly the Squirrel as he goes on an adventure in a big city park. Along the way, he becomes an unlikely hero to the park when he plots a heist of Maury's Nut Shop in an effort to help the park animals stock up for the winter.
The app includes a storybook, tap-to-paint scenes from the movie and four games. It will be available in the U.S. at an introductory price of $0.99 (full price $1.99) at the Apple App Store, Amazon Appstore, Google Play and Barnes & Noble's Nook Store.
