Transference is a very weird puzzle thriller

Ubisoft have announced Transference, which I think is a thriller/puzzle/adventure game.

All there is to go on is a brief trailer featuring Elijah Wood, but the game itself is apparently a collaboration between Ubisoft and SpectreVision, and “bridges the gap between movies and games.” You’ll be reconstructing a man’s digitally recreated memories, wandering around the minds of troubled subjects, and “escaping a maze-like puzzle.”

The trailer is all live-action, but I’m assuming the game itself isn’t, considering the nature of the game. Despite all the VR talk in the trailer, it’s also not a VR-exclusive game; while it can be played in VR, you don’t need to. In any case, it’s described as a psychological thriller with a branching narrative in which you’ll determine the fate of a trouble family and trying to repair their lives.

Have a look at the exceptionally weird trailer below, as well as an interview I haven’t had time to watch because Ubisoft keep uploading new videos that they’re not actually showing in their conference.

Tim McDonald

Tim has been playing PC games for longer than he’s willing to admit. He’s written for a number of publications, but has been with PC Invasion – in all its various incarnations – for over a decade. When not writing things about games, Tim can occasionally be found speedrunning some really terrible ones, getting very angry at people in Dota 2, or playing basically anything that’s not a hardcore simulation or sports game. He’s also weirdly proud of his status as (probably) the Isle of Man’s only professional games journalist.
