The Turing Test for PC and XONE is an FPP logic puzzle game. It was developed by Bulkhead Interactive, founded by the creators of Pneuma: Breath of Life, and published by Square Enix.
The story takes place in an unspecified future, sometime after humanity discovered alien life forms on Europa, Jupiter's fourth biggest moon. They seem simple and absolutely harmless, but humans are still cautious about the discovery.
During the campaign, you play as an astronaut and an International Space Agency Engineer named Ava Turing. She is sent to Europa to further examine the new species. However, she ends up discovering much more than she had expected.
The Turing Test for PC and XONE belongs to the FPP logic puzzle genre, popularised by the Portal series. You view everything from Ava's perspective, and while the control model may resemble that of many FPS games, there's absolutely no combat. The gameplay focuses mostly on solving puzzles.
Most of the puzzles require making use of a device that allows you to manipulate energy and transfer it from object to object. Sometimes you also need to use various mechanisms and intelligent machines, as well as perform occasional platform challenges, where a good reflex comes in handy.
