Atlanta, GA (April 16, 2015) - The Age of Turing is an innovative FREE interactive game experience that tells the story of what would’ve happened if Alan Turing had lived a full life and further his work in computer science. For 6 to 7 weeks this summer, audiences will be able to explore an alternate reality story universe in which they get to interact directly with present time characters living in a world with superfast machines, advance robotics, and the first aware artificial intelligence known to come to existence.
ARchimeral Inc. co –creators April Arrglington and Jose Delgado believe that the interactive, participatory, and social nature of this experience is ideal to immerse audiences into a story told in real time through multiple platforms, direct character interactions, and intriguing puzzles needed to be solved to find out what happens next. Follow Abigail, Emily and Charles and help them decide what to do when a mysterious supercomputer becomes consciously aware. By simply ‘friending’ them on social media audiences will be led along a fascinating journey where they will question alliances, the motives behind this new cognizant artificial intelligence, and all the hidden messages left to be revealed through augmented reality.
