A downloadable game for Windows and macOS

Utility for the Soul is a meditative interactive puzzle experience based on Lithuanian-American environment artist Aleksandra Kasuba's concept for what she called the Retreat House. It was intended to be a unique, utopian facility for use by large corporations to give overworked employees a fresh perspective and rejuvenate them.

Take the role of the revitalisation manager of the Retreat House and guide the visiting workers by interacting with various mechanisms hidden from plain sight. Touch, hold, or drag features in order to refresh the tired employees’ souls and prepare them for their return to the office.

The project is a part of a retrospective exhibition "Shaping the future. Environments by Aleksandra Kasuba" at The National Gallery of Art in Vilnius, Lithuania.

  • Interactive puzzle experience. 
  • Meditative, soothing atmosphere.
  • Original utopian narrative.
  • 11 rooms to explore, each with a unique elemental puzzle.
  • Playable in English and Lithuanian languages.
