Another game announced during E3 2017 this week looks like one that will mess with the ol’ brain a bit. The game is titled Transference, and it comes from Elijah Wood and his production company SpectreVision in collaboration with Ubisoft. It also features Macon Blair, who starred in Blue Ruin and Green Room, and recently directed Wood in the Netflix movie I Don’t Feel at Home in This World Anymore.
Transference is a virtual reality experience, but will also be playable on traditional platforms as well. You can read more about it and watch the announcement trailer as well as a second video about the game below.
