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.
