Back at E3 I got to play Transference and promptly gave it my award for best game on the show floor. Of course, I couldn't get out of my mind and wanted to see more of the game as soon as possible. Thankfully it seems my patience is about to pay off. Ubisoft has not only announced a release date for the game but has also put up a demo.

Transference follows the story of yourself. You'll dive into the mind of a man who has uploaded himself, his wife, and his son into a computer. Why has he done this? Well, his reasons are currently a mystery, but that's what you're there to find out. To advance through his mind you'll need to solve puzzles, moving through two different realities that you can swap between via light switches. You're also not alone, as a mysterious glitchy presence hunts your character, and has unknown goals of his own. If this interests you, then Transference will be available on September 18th, so you don't have to wait long. Not sold yet? There's also a demo you can grab to try out.

The demo is called Transference: The Walter Test Case and is currently available on PlayStation 4. It can be played with or without VR. The demo is not actually a slice of the full game, but rather serves as a stand-alone prequel. In it, you'll be looking through the mind of Walter, a man who suffers from PTSD. The section sees you solving simple puzzles while learning about Walter. By hitting a light switch you move between the years 1993 and 2002 where you see two very different phases of his life. All told, the demo takes about 20-30 minutes to finish and serves as a great introduction to the game.

Transference will launch on September 18th for PC, PlayStation 4, and Xbox One for the price of $25. The game will also be compatible with PlayStation VR, HTC Vive, and Oculus Rift.
