South Wales, UK, 24th May 2018 - Wales Interactive are creating history on Mixer (Mixtory?) with the very first interactive live-action movie that puts the entire audience in control. To celebrate the 1-year anniversary of Mixer, streamers will now have the chance to pass over the controls with the all-new audience voting system in the award-winning FMV crime thriller, Late Shift.
The audience’s 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 with adaptable storylines that can lead to one of seven conclusions.
Starting today on PC (Steam) and Xbox One, Mixer audiences can vote on every single decision made throughout the game—and there is over 180 in total to be made! The streaming host also gets a vote but can in no way force the outcome themselves in a majority rule voting scenario. Anyone can access the Mixer interactive feature from the main menu.
Love FMV? Stay tuned for the June 5th launch of The Infectious Madness of Doctor Dekker on PS4, Xbox One and Nintendo Switch!
