Puzzler The Turing Test Launches August 30th

By Kelly Packard, 1 year ago
What does it mean to be human? A complex question, no less. August's The Turing Test aims to take a stab at answering it. The first-person puzzler is being brought to players by the team from Pneuma: Breath of Life and promises to challenge both gamers' intellect and imagination.

The Turing Test

The game is receiving comparisons to of course Pneuma as well as Valve's Portal. It is titled after its protagonist, Ava Turing, an engineer for the International Space Agency, as she investigates suspicious events at one of their bases on Jupiter's moon Europa. Her tool of choice is an EMT, Energy Manipulation Tool, and the game's puzzles center around transferring energy from one object or structure to another. Turing will use her EMT to complete increasingly complex tasks and control AI.

The developers, who are a six-person team called Bulkhead Interactive, also announced all the profits from The Turing Test will go toward the development of their upcoming WWII shooter Battalion 1944. The Turing Test releases August 30th on Xbox One. Battalion is scheduled for launch sometime in 2017.
