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. Expand

    As a first person puzzle game with a talkative AI character, The Turing Test proves that you can take the formula laid down by Portal and make it your own. This game offers a distinct and atmospheric story, and provides some well designed and challenging puzzles along the way.

    Of course, there's a huge difference between "not as good as Portal 2" and "not worth playing", not least because there's a good argument to be made that Portal 2 is the best game ever. Failing to live up to perfection is only failure in a very broad sense of the term, and The Turing Test hardly counts as a bad game. It won't make you forget that elephant-sized game in the corner of the room by any means, but if you're still wishing that, one way or another, GLaDOS and Chell could return, this probably counts as the closest you're going to get.

    The Turing Test is both a thoughtful meditation on the implications of artificial intelligence, and a competent first-person puzzler. Its systems are clever, its graphics make for unambiguous play, and its mechanical focus on logic is satisfying. Structural and pacing issues are certainly present, but they aren't egregious enough to meaningfully detract from the experience.

    It's the quality of the headscratchers that earns Turing a passing score. [March 2017, p.96]

    The comparisons to Portal are many, and obviously intentional, but this smart and ambitious first person puzzler is no mere clone.

    I loved this game. I paid $20 for it which seems about right for what I got. It fits in a genre with Portal and The Talos Principle both ofI loved this game. I paid $20 for it which seems about right for what I got. It fits in a genre with Portal and The Talos Principle both of which I like very much. All of the stand alone puzzles or "rooms" are solvable and fairly straight forward. How long this game takes you to finish will be highly dependent on how often you get stuck trying to nuance a red herring solution. I finished the whole game in about 8 hours or so but a high percentage of that was spent on two or three puzzles where I tried an approach that didn't work out and was forced to restart a few times with a new strategy. All that said the driving theme is an interesting if familiar one and the ending, which I don't want to spoil in any way is interesting is a very illuminating way. I'll leave it at that, enjoy. Expand
