Ripstone Games has revealed that the upcoming sci-fi puzzle adventure The Spectrum Retreat will be launching on Nintendo Switch next week.
The game comes from Dan Smith, winner of 2016's BAFTA Young Game Designers Award, and puts players in the role of a guest at a peculiar hotel called The Penrose where nothing is as it seems. You’ve been here as long as you can remember, with no idea why, and it’s up to you to solve the mystery of this strangely pristine resort. To do this, you’ll have to solve a series of increasingly complex colour-coded puzzles.
It actually launched on other platforms in July, receiving positive reviews from users and critics. Smith has explained the feelings behind the game's launch, which publisher Ripstone has described as "a real labour of love" that has gone on quite the journey in its development.
“Developing The Spectrum Retreat took up nearly a quarter of my life. Launching it earlier this year was a massive moment for me and I’m delighted that Nintendo Switch owners will finally get a chance to experience it."
The Spectrum Retreat will be available on 13th September, costing £9.99 / €12.99 / $12.99. At first, it will be released across the majority of Europe and North America, with a release in Germany and Russia to follow later in the year.
