About the Story

"The staff's jubilant anticipation of the first human transfer was now replaced with dread. Why had the Professor fallen ill so suddenly? And how callous of the Overseers to insist on proceeding without delay!" [--blurb from Competition Aught-Zero]

Off-Site Reviews

SPAG
The main strength of Transfer is the gadget itself, and the variety of ways you put it to use; the game could plausibly be considered an extended riff on the central idea of identity-switching, in that the idea gets used in unexpected (and occasionally hilarious) ways. The element of the story that revolves around the machine is sufficiently convoluted that one question in the hints late in the game is, essentially, "Huh?"--but the story is sufficiently well crafted that the complexity doesn't feel gratuitous.

Transfer is a well-written interesting game, well worth a look.

>INVENTORY - Paul O'Brian writes about interactive fiction

I wasn't able to finish the game in the two hours allotted judging time, but assuming I survive the process of grading another 50 games, I eagerly anticipate returning to reach the ending of Transfer -- if the rest of the game is any indication, the payoff should be worthwhile indeed.
