Thank Goodness They're Still Making FMV Games In 2017

Polygons, sprites, they’re good and all, but Late Shift has real people* punching other real people in the face. Welcome to the wonderful world of Full Motion Video.

I just love FMV games, they’re often silly, goofy, daft fun, especially when they’re attempting to be completely serious.

Back in the mid 90s it was just impressive to see moving pictures on a computer screen, it was almost magical. Late Shift may be too well shot and acted to be mistaken for mid 90’s FMV schlock, but there’s still fun to be had in choosing how the surprisingly engaging story pans out.

Late Shift is out today on PC & Mac, PS4 and Xbox one.

My Saab haunts me from the grave

Have you played The Bunker? It has a slightly spooky, uncomfortable atmosphere. My only complaint was sometimes it was a little tough to see what was clickable.
