Ubisoft and SpectreVision have mixed the stylings of Black Mirror and The Matrix with a twisted vision of the future that feels dangerously honest and realistic. While I’d have certainly loved for it to be a bit longer, I also appreciate how well-paced and polished it feels at the same time. It’s not without its flaws, but Transference is an unforgettable VR experience that I won’t soon forget.
Every so often, a game comes around to demonstrate the untapped potential of VR technology. Transference is one of those games. It grips you from the beginning with its unrelenting atmosphere and doesn’t let up until the credits roll. Even if you play it on a traditional platform, Transference is, at the very least, proof that film and game are not mutually exclusive mediums, but complementary halves that form a greater whole.
After the credits rolled on Transference we couldn't help but feel a bit disappointed. Sure this is a VR game at heart, and they're often short, but this was with us for such a brief time and didn't require enough of us to get us really excited and involved. It's worth one quick run if you want an interesting VR experience with a few spooks and interesting use of FMV, but with very basic gameplay and a painfully slow walking pace, it might be more hassle than it's worth.
