Developers of the recently crowdfunded ‘Battalion 1944’ Bulkhead Interactive have announced a brand new Unreal Engine 4 first person puzzler named ‘The Turing Test’ simultaneously releasing exclusively for Xbox One and Steam, August 2016.
The Turing Test is a first-person puzzler from the developers of ‘Pneuma: Breath of Life’ that explores the phenomena of consciousness and challenges the meaning of human intuition. Take control of Ava Turing, an engineer for the International Space Agency (ISA), and progress through a narrated story of introspection and morality whilst uncovering the hidden mysteries of Europa. Delve into The Turing Test’s human interaction puzzles and arm yourself with logical and methodical thinking. Take on tests designed in such a way that only a human could solve them. In an evolving story based on mankind’s inherent need to explore, protect and survive; players search deeper into Europa’s ice crusted core and transcend the line between man and machine.
Investigate the truth behind the ISA research base on Jupiter’s moon Europa. Solve puzzles using your Energy Manipulation Tool (EMT) to transfer power out from one object and into another. Power up and take control of artificially intelligent machines, manipulate giant structures and solve complex tasks; all woven into a multi-layered story based on the human struggle for control. The Turing Test can only be experienced through the interactive medium of video games.
The Turing Test sparks your synapses into action in this electrifying new first-person puzzler, as players learn the true cost of retaining human morality.
“The Turing Test is an exciting opportunity for us to build on the precedent set by our first puzzle game ‘Pneuma: Breath of Life’ and create a much more refined and deeper story-driven experience. The profits from our new game ‘The Turing Test’ will go directly towards the development of our recently announced WW2 shooter Battalion 1944.” – Howard Philpott, Creative Producer at Bulkhead Interactive
