Transference is VR's 'Being John Malkovich' from Ubisoft

About halfway through their conference, Ubisoft played a odd live action commercial for a title called Transference, starring Elijah Wood among a few other actors. "The opportunity to work with SpectreVision to create a game with rich characters and an intimate yet multi-branching narrative was impossible to pass up", said Caroline Martin, Executive Director, FunHouse, Ubisoft Montreal. It's slated for a Spring 2018 release.

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. How the player chooses to proceed will have consequences that affect the fate of the family. Combined with the experience of building rich gameplay Ubisoft is known for, Transference™ is a dark, thrilling puzzle featuring Macon Blair (Blue Ruin, Green Room).

Fun fact: Macon Blair directed the recent film I Don't Feel at Home in This World Anymore, which co-starred Elijah Wood.
