Epic Games Store: Free Games – 1st July 2021

The Spectrum Retreat

The first person puzzle game really had a huge revival a couple of years ago, huh? The Spectrum Retreat is one of those, alongside games like Manifold Garden, The Talos Principle and The Witness that puts you directly in the shoes of the problem solver. I really enjoy this genre, although I don’t get to actually play them that much. To be perfectly honest, I don’t get to play anything that much, so it’s not surprising.

But The Spectrum Retreat is well-reviewed on Steam, so it’s one that’s worth checking out. A bit of mystery, a bit of creepy android action and a nod towards Black Mirror is a good thing in my book. I’m all for it.

At this point I don’t really have anything to add, so I’m just going to fill up space with the fact that I’m in the process of moving to Canada right now and actually wrote this the day before our flight. I don’t know if I’ll be able to keep this up in real-time once we get there, so I hope that I don’t start dropping weeks. I’ve done really well at keeping this up and would hate to start slipping. Fingers crossed!
