Late Shift is the world’s first cinematic interactive movie. The action-thriller allows you to make plot-changing decisions on behalf of Matt, the protagonist, in real time, while the film keeps running seamlessly. With one beginning but countless storylines and seven different endings, it’s up to you to discover the different plot variations and make "better" decisions.
