Back at E3 2017 we saw a trailer for a game called Transference. It comes from SpectreVision, a company co-founded by Elijah Wood which is known mainly for its film production (Cooties, A Girl Walks Home Alone at Night, The Boy), and Ubisoft. The game aims to blend the worlds of movies and video games into one experience, with both gameplay and live-action video. The cast includes Macon Blair, who starred in Blue Ruin, Green Room, and the upcoming Hold the Dark from director Jeremy Saulnier.
Another trailer was released for E3 2018 a couple of months back, and now a gameplay walkthrough video and demo trailer have been released for Gamescom 2018. You can find more info on the game, as well as both of those videos along with the E3 2018 trailer below if you missed it.
