Here at Bulkhead Interactive we are massively excited to announce the release date for our brand new first-person puzzler, The Turing Test. On August 30, you’ll be able to see what it means to transcend the line between man and machine and solve puzzles that only a human could solve.
We’ve been working and refining this game for over a year, and after getting feedback from playtest events such as EGX Rezzed in London, GDC in San Francisco and E3 in Los Angeles we’ve been able to refine the game to a point where people just want to see and play more… and you can! The Turing Test will be playable on the show flow at gamescom this August. If you’re in Cologne, make sure to trust your intelligence, try out the game and also chat with us, The Turing Test developers!
Can’t make it to Cologne? We’ve got you covered. We’ve just released a brand new trailer, showing you a snapshot of The Turing Test’s complex puzzles and a hint at the darker side of the game’s story about what it means to be human.
In The Turing Test you wrack your brain whilst discovering the truth of humanity’s research base on Europa, solving puzzles using your EMT (Energy Manipulation Tool) to transpose 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 of this is woven into a multi-layered story based on the human struggle for power which can only be experienced through the interactive medium of video games.
As an added bonus for WWII shooter fans, all of the funds raised from the sales of The Turing Test will go directly into the budget for Battalion 1944, our WWII shooter coming late 2017.
