Added DiffLines:

* AssholeVictim: May-Ling’s crew, Jeff included. None of are nice guys and are perfectly willing to kill Matt after the job is done, regardless how well he preforms. [[spoiler:Suffice to say, no tears are shed when they all die in the crash.]]


Added DiffLines:

* JerkWithAHeartOfJerk: Jeff. He kidnaps Matt at gunpoint and drags Matt into the heist. However, Jeff does explain that he isn’t murderer and he seems like a nice guy to Matt if he follows Jeff’s orders during the heist. When the heist is done however, Jeff then seems fine with silencing Matt regardless of how well he followed Jeff’s orders.


* ReplacementLoveInterest: At first it seems that Elodie, the young woman who asks Matt for the keys to the Maserati, will be Matt's LoveInterest. [[spoiler:This doesn't happen because, no matter what the player does, she doesn't get the Maserati and May-Ling becomes the love interest for the rest of the game.]]

Added DiffLines:

* StupidCrooks: Lee's EstablishingCharacterMoment immediately paints him in a bad light. He rappels into the car park and (determinant on player action or inaction) injures his hand so that he cannot drive (also leaving evidence on the scene with his blood), potentially scares Elodie (leaving a witness) and then kidnaps Matt all while planning to shoot him at various points. His conspirators berate him for his idiocy and willingly let Matt take half his share as Lee's being an idiot and potentially jeopardised the operation.


You're a night watchman working at the local parking garage, it's pretty boring work and tonight is just as slow as ever. Best to just sit back and study while the hours tick away... until you notice something come up on the monitor. You investigate and before you know it you're being held at gunpoint by a gang of thieves intent on knocking over a auction house... and they need your help. So begins Late Shift, a 2017 [[InteractiveFiction interactive movie]] done entirely in live action that casts the players as the protagonist. A throwback to the FullMotionVideo game genre.

Added DiffLines:

* PoliceAreUseless: Try to bring the cup to the police, and Matt will promptly get arrested, with the officers not only blowing off his (true) story of what happened, but accusing him of being part of the robbery from the very beginning and just chickening out, hence him going to the police. All this without so much as a background check on the guy or viewing the security footage of the parking garage he claims to work at, and [[JerkAss while essentially mocking him to his face the whole time]]. You can't help but feel glad when [[spoiler:the Tchois intercept his transport and take him away]].


Added DiffLines:

* VillainousRescue: If you take the cup to the police, [[spoiler:Matt will be arrested for the theft and is on his way to prison when the Tchois bust him out of the transport. After that, while he has to work for it, he can get off scot free even without the GoldenEnding thanks to their interference.]]


* ScrewTheMoneyIHaveRules: [[spoiler:Matt has the option of rejecting Parr's bride and alerting the Tchois to his involvement in the robbery. This still isn't enough to save May-Ling, unfortunately.]]

* ActuallyIAmHim: Matt sneaks into the auction house to find out some important information and gets caught by a man who works there. He claims the man's colleague let him in and blurts out a name he overheard the receptionist say: Mr. Quinn. The man tells him to wait and then leaves. [[AllThereInTheManual The credits reveal]] that the man Matt spoke to ''was'' Mr. Quinn [[spoiler:which explains why he calls security on Matt.]]

Added DiffLines:

* CrypticBackgroundReference: Matt overhears Dr. Brent say, "...the way he saturates it with his ego". This bit of dialogue is never explained and plays no role in the plot whatsoever.

Added DiffLines:

* SirSwearsALot: Matt is fond of saying the f-word. He says it in almost every scene, even in front of the old lady sitting next to him at the auction.


* Chekhov'sGunman: Elodie seems to have no connection to the main plot until [[spoiler:Matt goes to the hospital and it turns out she works there. She either helps Matt find Sebastien or refuses to help depending on the player's actions.]]
