Given video gaming's reliance on artificial intelligence and penchant for sci-fi themes, it's surprising that only now there's a game named after Alan Turing's famous A.I. test. Here we are though, with The Turing Test hitting Xbox One on August 30th. It's also been promised for Steam next month. A post on Xbox Wire makes the game sound an awful lot like Portal, to be honest. It's a first-person puzzler set in a sterile research facility on Jupiter's moon Europa wherein you'll use a gun of sorts to control A.I.-powered machines and "solve puzzles that only a human could solve." That's in addition to other tasks designed to bend your brain.

"All of this is woven into a multi-layered story based on the human struggle for power, which can only be experienced through the interactive medium of video games," developer Bulkhead Interactive's Howard Philpott writes. If you can't wait until the end of next month to play but will be in Cologne, Germany for Gamescom, good news, because the game will be on the show floor.

Until then check out the trailer embedded just below. There's an extremely hard wink at director Alex Garland's Ex Machina at the very end -- an incredible Oscar-winning movie about, you guessed it, an advanced Turing Test. Coincidence? I think not.
