Ubisoft’s Transference Game Is Part Escape Room, Part Psychological Thriller

As is the case with most fictional mad scientists, Raymond Hayes decides he and his family are the best subjects for his final test and attempts to upload himself, his wife Katherine, and their son Benjamin all into the same simulation. Things do not go well.
