Indie publisher, Wales Interactive, in conjunction with directing collective and game developer CtrlMovie, are bringing their interactive movie, Late Shift, to PC and PlayStation 4 on April 12th, 2017.
While this marks CtrlMovie’s first foray into the video game world, fans of Soul Axiom, Master Reboot or Coffin Dodgers might recognize the Wales Interactive pedigree. Late Shift saw a limited run in theaters last year, garnering positive reviews. Directed by Tobias Weber and written by Michael Johnson, who wrote the 2009 Sherlock Holmes film, Late Shift regales us with the tale of Matt (played by Joe Sowerbutts), a mathematics student who is forced into a high-stakes auction house robbery, and left attempting to maintain his innocent in the face of brutal violence.
With 180 decision points sprinkled throughout the story, and seven different endings, Late Shift looks to continue an already successful revival of FMV games. Available on Steam with 20% off during the pre-order period, we can attempt to solve the mysteries of Late Shift when it releases on April 12th.
