the turing test arrives on playstation 4 in january

The Turing Test, a space puzzle game by Bulkhead Interactive, is taking to a new territory. Originally released for Steam and Xbox One in August of 2016, the game is making the leap to the PlayStation 4 on January 23rd.

For those unfamiliar with Turing Test, the game is a first person puzzler, set within the backdrop of a lone lunar base, deep in the far reaches of the solar system. Players strap on their Astronaut suits and take the role of Ava, an engineer with  the International Space Agency (ISA). You are dispatched to a lunar base on Europa, one of Jupiter’s many moons. As you arrive, there are no signs of the crew, as they have mysteriously disappeared.

However, the stations Artificial Intelligence, T.O.M, is still active. He shows no hostilities to Ava, ruling out the possibility of the computer going wrong. However, there are a series of puzzles that need to be solved. Tom informs Ava that the crew set those puzzles up, leaving Ava and the player to wonder what is realy going on,a s well as what really happened in the base.

The Turing Test

The game is actually based on a 1950 test by scientist Alan Turing. The test was designed to test behavior in machines, as to be indistinguishable from human behaviors. the machine was expected to act, look, and essentially be human beyond any reasonable doubt. The test was woven into the plot for the ground-breaking 2015 science-fiction movie, Ex Machina.

Turing Test was lauded by critics and players alike. Some say that it has joined the ranks of pivotal games, such as Portal and The Talos Principle. The gameplay was well-received, but most importantly, was a story that had players think, as the themes of exploration and human mortality are explored.

Look for The Turing Test on Tuesday, January 23rd.

Rivalries are forming and guys are finding time to practice in between work and working out to sharpen their mad skills...morale is through the roof! Thank you again, the Supply Crate you sent has truly improved our living conditions and gives us a much needed form of relaxation. You may not realize it, but this will keep our sanity intact."

Your Supply Crate not only made my Christmas, but made my year; this has really turned things around for me. Stack-Up is truly a thoughtful organization, designed to bring happiness to us vets who have an extremely hard time finding happiness anywhere in their lives.

"I heard from a brother that you guys helped him out; to see that kindness still around is amazing. As a vet its hard sometimes, and having groups like yours out helping for nothing in return its great. Please keep up the great work and don't ever stop."

...while we have all had various types of awesome care packages delivered to us over the years with toiletries, tobacco, and tasty treats, none of us have ever experienced anything quite like a Stack-Up Supply Crate.

Working on the flightline, 12 hour days are normal and there are so many stresses that come with my job. Being able to come home and forget all of it for even an hour does wonders for me personally. I have built so many friendships in Stack-Up and I can't wait to make more. It's a family.
