The Turing Test is meant to be the definitive measurement of machine sentience, but this summer we humans will be put through our own strenuous examination when The Turing Test is released as an interactive adventure this summer.
Players are put in the first-person shoes of Ava Turing, an engineer for the International Space Agency as she "attempts to uncover the truth behind the research base on Jupiter’s moon, Europa." The story "explores the phenomena of consciousness and challenges the meaning of human intuition" as it examines mankind's "inherent need to explore, protect and survive." As you venture "deeper into Europa’s ice crusted core and transcend the line between man and machine," you must undertake a variety of interactive puzzles that "only a human could solve."
In order to succeed in your goals, you will need to "power up and take control of artificially intelligent machines, manipulate giant structures and solve complex tasks." Your main tool in freely navigating this 3D world is the Energy Manipulation Tool, which allows you to transfer power from one object to another, but you will also "learn the significance of player control as you switch between multiple perspectives to solve The Turing Test’s most challenging puzzles."
Created by the developer of Pneuma: Breath of Life and published by the Square Enix Collective, The Turing Test is on track for release this August on PC and Xbox One. To learn more about the game, visit the official website for additional details in the coming months.
