BAFTA Young Game Designer winner, Dan Smith, and publisher, Ripstone Games, are pleased to share the first gameplay footage of the upcoming first-person puzzler, The Spectrum Retreat. The all new gameplay and commentary details the pristinely eerie Penrose Hotel and unique colour-coded puzzles devised by the young game designer, showing how the basic colour swapping mechanics learnt in early levels will become increasingly complex later in the game. In addition, the footage hints at the narrative arc of the The Spectrum Retreat and the potential turmoil players might experience within its walls.
The Spectrum Retreat takes place in the near future at The Penrose hotel, a peaceful yet unsettling refuge from the outside world. As a valued guest, your existence is embedded into the corridors and guest rooms of The Penrose. Through exploration of the striking art-deco hotel you will begin to uncover the mysteries of both The Penrose and the uncertainties surrounding your current stay. Your desire to unearth the truth is obstructed by an array of colour coded first-person puzzles, mind-bending physics challenges and the growing fear of exposing your true intentions.
