Puzzles and mysteries await in The Spectrum Retreat

You wake up to a knock at your door. You get out of bed and open the door. A well-dressed robot stands on the other side — one of the staff members of the hotel. He informs you that you requested a wake up call at this time, and tells you that breakfast is ready… Continue reading Puzzles and mysteries await in The Spectrum Retreat

Shape of the World provides a beautiful, serene escape from our worldly troubles

I'm standing in a pond. The sky is a deep shade of purple, black trees with orange leaves sprouting up around me, framing the glowing monuments before me.
