How do you go about your life when self-isolation has become the new normal? CHESTNUT GROVE is based on my personal experience of quarantine and features 100% real documents and notices.


When your daily life is confined to a small area, you start to take a closer look at the familiar. See how the crisis impacts your usual environment.
CHESTNUT GROVE is a short first-person experience, created to document the early days of the COVID-19 pandemic through a personal lens.

This game is a short walking simulator with some light puzzles and can usually be completed within 30 minutes.


  • a short first-person experience portraying life during the early COVID-19 pandemic.
  • a focus on atmosphere and mood.
  • all documents featured within the game are authentic and taken from real life
  • light puzzles and environmental interactions.


Mention of COVID-19 pandemic.
Mentioning of suicide.
