The game will release in August 2016 and puts players in the shoes of Ava Turing, an engineer for the International Space Agency (ISA), as she attempts to uncover the truth behind the research base on Jupiter’s moon, Europa.
Solve puzzles using your Energy Manipulation Tool (EMT) to transfer power out of 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 game, being developed using Unreal 4, is the next project to release from Bulkhead Interactive. The studio previously released Pneuma: Breath of Life, and recently concluded a successful Kickstarter campaign for their next project Battalion 1944 (which is planned to release in 2017).
“We’re big fans of the platform that Square Enix® has created in Collective,” said Howard Philpott, Creative Producer at Bulkhead Interactive. “We’re excited to be a part of Square Enix’s plans for the future of the industry. For us at Bulkhead they’ve opened many doors that wouldn’t have been accessible to us without their connections or years of experience in publishing games. They’ve given us the opportunity to make The Turing Test a more solid, polished, and ultimately an all-round better game.”
The Turing Test will be one of the games featured in the Square Enix Collective range at EGX Rezzed, taking place in London from April 7-9. As part of the partnership, the game will benefit from marketing services provided by world-leading agency Petrol Advertising and forecasting and evaluation support from EEDAR.
