Developer Spectrevision, Ubisoft Fun House Publisher Ubisoft Format PC, PS4, PSVR, Rift, Vive, Xbox One Release Spring 2018
The latest product of Fun House, the small outfit at Ubisoft Montreal with an experimental brief, sees the team partner up with Spectrevision, an LA VFX firm co-founded by one Elijah Wood. This isn’t Wood’s first foray into VR – he voiced the title character in Henry, an Emmy-winning short that launched alongside Rift. But Transference, as an Ubisoft producer was at pains to point out during a preE3 briefing, is absolutely, positively a game, albeit one with film-like elements. It tasks you with entering a VR reconstruction of the minds of multiple members of a single family, piecing together their history and affecting events in the real world through your decisions. It’s a Spectrevision concept built by Ubisoft, whose continued support of and experimentation with VR is a rare, commendable thing among companies of its size – though it’s hedging its bets a little here, with
Transference also in development for good old-fashioned consoles and PC.
