The Spectrum Retreat – Out on Nintendo Switch September 13th!

05th September

We are proud to share that The Spectrum Retreat will launch on the Nintendo Switch eShop on September 13th, priced at €12.99 / £9.99!

The Spectrum Retreat puts players in the role of a guest at the peculiar, pristine hotel, 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 uncanny resort. To do this, you’ll have to solve a series of increasingly complex color-coded puzzles in an effort to uncover the true purpose of The Penrose.

Having launched on PS4, Xbox One, and PC in July, The Spectrum Retreat received rave reviews from Gamereactor, Trusted Reviews, and The Xbox Hub.


“Developing The Spectrum Retreat took up nearly a quarter of my life,” said Developer and Designer Dan Smith. “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 was a real labour of love for both Dan and everyone at Ripstone who believed in his vision” said Matt Southern, Head of Development at Ripstone Games. “What began as a clever puzzle game expanded into a rich, contemplative narrative about the role of technology in an ever complex society and we’re thrilled to bring it to Nintendo Switch.”
