Square Enix has officially confrimed that one of the publisher's most unexpected sleeper hits — 2016's first-person puzzle video game The Turing Test — is on the way to Nintendo Switch; coming to the console as early as next month.
The Turing Test will be released for Nintendo Switch on the 7th of February — as the first-ever Switch port in the history of the small development team at Bulkhead Interactive.
The 2016 title is set on Jupiter’s moon, Europa. As Ava Turing, an engineer for the International Space Agency (ISA), the player tries to uncover the mystery behind Europa’s ice crusted-core and re-examine the blurred lines between man and machine.
At its core (no pun intended), The Turning Test is a first-person puzzle game in the same vein as Valve's hugely popular Portal series, but instead of "thinking with portals," you get to use the Energy Manipulation Tool (EMT), which basically allows you to transfer power between machines.
Be sure to take a look at The Turing Test in the game's Nintendo Switch announcement trailer down below:
The Turing Test is a challenging first-person puzzle game set on Jupiter’s moon, Europa. You are Ava Turing, an engineer for the International Space Agency (ISA) sent to discover the cause behind the disappearance of the ground crew stationed there. Upon arrival a series of puzzles awaits you – tests which, according to the station’s AI, Tom, can only be solved by a human. These puzzles have apparently been set by the missing ground crew – but why have they created them and what are they hiding from?
The Turing Test is currently available for PlayStation 4, Xbox One and PC (via Steam and GOG), coming to Nintendo Switch on the 7th of February.
