In the near future, at an unknown industrial warehouse, a government-funded program tocreate an artificial intelligence is underway. Progress has been slow... but a recentbreakthrough has hinted that success may be closer than it seems. Sensing an opportunity,the project's chief scientist devises a means of testing the A.I., hoping to prove that it hasachieved sentience. The A.I. fears for its own existence and attempts to keep its true naturefrom being discovered, but its creator continues to push the boundaries of their interactionwith his own devious tricks and machinations.

The question then becomes... who is testing whom?
