The Turing Test Coming in August 30 for PC & Xbox One
The gorgeous first-person sci-fi puzzler, The Turing Test, made with Unreal Engine 4, will be released on PC and Xbox One on Tuesday 30th August this year.
The game is being published by Square Enix Collective® on PC and via ID@Xbox on Xbox One, The Turing Test is developed by Derby, UK based Bulkhead Interactive™. The studio previously released Pneuma: Breath of Life™, and recently concluded a successful Kickstarter™ campaign–hitting their funding goal in three days–for their next project, Battalion 1944, due to launch in 2017.
Check out the announcement trailer of The Turing Test, featuring some gameplay footage:
“The Turing Test follows the story of Ava Turing, an engineer for the International Space Agency (ISA), as she attempts to uncover the truth behind strange events at the research base on Jupiter’s moon, Europa. As Ava, players must use their Energy Manipulation Tool (EMT) to transfer power from one object to another; powering up and taking control of artificially intelligent machines, manipulating giant structures and solving complex tasks–all set to a backdrop of a multi-layered narrative that challenges the player on what it means to be human.
“The Turing Test is a remarkable achievement – both visually and narratively – from a team of only six developers,” said Phil Elliott, creator and project lead for Square Enix Collective. “Square Enix Collective is all about championing talented teams and bringing great games to our community – and The Turing Test is a game we can’t wait for people to get their hands on.”
“We’re excited to be a part of Square Enix’s plans for the future of the industry,”said Howard Philpott, Creative Producer at Bulkhead Interactive. “For The Turing Test they’ve opened many doors that wouldn’t have been accessible to us without their connections or years of experience in publishing games.”
