When it comes to first-person games, we often think of shooters or the occasional adventure with the likes of The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim. But how about a puzzle game? The Witness is an excellent example, but now Square Enix Collective will be adding to the genre with The Turing Test, out next month.
The Turing Test is a first-person sci-fi puzzle set on Jupiter’s moon, Europa, and you play an engineer named Ava Turing. She has been sent to investigate the disappearance of the stationed ground crew by her employers, the International Space Agency (ISA).
While this isn’t a new title or exclusively for the Switch, the developers received a positive response when it was released on other platforms three years ago (it’s available on Steam, Xbox One and PS4), so are looking to reach a new audience on the Nintendo eShop.
Seeing the all the love from players for the original release of The Turing Test was overwhelming for our small team – and now 3 years later being able to bring that experience to a host of new players in their homes (and on the go!) is extremely exciting for us. We can’t wait to share those moments of puzzle, exploration and discovery with a totally new audience on the Nintendo Switch!Howard Philpott, Lead Designer (from Press Release)
