Is it a movie? Is it a game?

The makers of “Black Mirror” just released their first full-length interactive “movie” on Netflix. The special thing is that the viewer can control decisions of the main character so the whole movie becomesĀ  a “choose your own adventure” story. Everything gets quite meta and eventually the viewer is part of the story itself. The storyline is more than a binary “live or die”, and even “wrong” decisions have an impact if one is forced to start from a “saved game”. Hard do explain, give it a try. It works pretty well and the experience makes up for a bit overall weak plot.

Be aware that Bandersnatch does not work on all devices. Apple TV for instance is currently not supported, but the Netflix Client on my LG TV was fine. Also all browser should be ok.

Everyone who likes the Black Mirror series should watch this.
