Back in April, Dan Smith and Ripstone Games announced The Spectrum Retreat, a first person puzzle game. Today, a brand new trailer was released for the title, which reveals when the game is releasing on PC, PS4, Xbox One, and Nintendo Switch.

The PS4 version of The Spectrum Retreat will be the first to hit on July 10. The PC and Xbox One versions will then arrive on July 13. Unfortunate, Nintendo Switch players only have a vague “later this Summer” release window to go by.

For those of you who aren’t aware, The Spectrum Retreat is a project from Dan Smith, who won the BAFTA Young Game Designer award back in 2016. After winning, Ripstone Games ended up approaching and partnering with him order to fully develop The Spectrum Retreat.

When it comes to puzzles, the game features no reaction or physics based ones to make things more relaxing. Instead, puzzles in The Spectrum Retreat are based mostly on color-coding, and will progressivly get more difficult as the game goes on.

You can check the brand new trailer below. On July 13, The Spectrum Retreat will launch on PC, PS4, Xbox One, and Nintendo Switch.
