The FMV (full motion video) game Late Shift releases today. Written by the author of the 2009 Sherlock Holmes movie the game features a main character that has been forced into the robbery of an auction house and then has to prove his innocence. It’s fairly standard stuff in that your actions have consequences further down the line.
The game (kind of?) was shot in full HD in locations around London, and is published by Wales Interactive who also published FMV The Bunker. Here’s the game’s description:
“After being forced into the robbery of a lucrative auction house, mathematics student Matt is left proving his innocence in the brutal London heist. Your choices will have consequences from the very start, right through to the very end. One small decision could change the entire outcome in a choose-your-own-adventure style gameplay that can lead to one of seven conclusions. Written by the author of Guy Ritchie’s 2009 movie, Sherlock Holmes, experience a gripping crime thriller with over 180 decision points. Do you steal the car or do you run away? Do you follow orders or sabotage the plan? You will have just seconds to decide as the film continues to roll with no pauses and no looping footage.”
Is this a thing you would play? Personally the fact it’s an interactive video has me interested. Let me know your thoughts in the comments below, or tweet me @bulletin_ben!
