The Spectrum Retreat is a challenging, first-person puzzle game set in the near future. You awake at The Penrose hotel, a peaceful yet unsettling refuge from the outside world. All is not as it seems, and your desire to unearth the truth is obstructed by an array of colour coded puzzles, mind-bending physics challenges and the growing fear of exposing your true intentions.
Having won the BAFTA YGD Award in 2016 for his puzzle game prototype when he was only 18 years old, Dan Smith has subsequently developed The Spectrum Retreat into an intriguing narrative-puzzler with a focus on intuitive first-person puzzle action.
