Check out the Trailer for British Thriller Game 'Late Shift'

It's set in London with a story by the 'Sherlock Holmes' movie screenwriter


Late Shift, a new heist game set in London, uses the FMV (full motion video) technique that was so popular in games in the 80s and 90s to create a modern thriller feel.

It stars Joe Sowerbutts (from 2003 movie I Capture the Castle), Haruka Abe  (from NBC's Emerald City) and Richard Durden (who you might have seen in British murder mysteries like Agatha Christie's Marple and Inspector Morse). Think a straight to Blu-ray British indie crime film for the vibe. 

It's the work of CtrlMovie, directed by Tobias Weber and written by Michael Robert Johnson, who penned the screenplay for the 2009 Sherlock Holmes movie. 

The game will be released on Steam, PlayStation 4 and Xbox One in April 2017.
