“Black Mirror” Episode “Bandersnatch” is Netflix’s First “Choose Your Own Adventure” Movie

The highly anticipated Black Mirror movie has arrived to Netflix and the concept is groundbreaking.

While watching the film, viewers are instructed to keep their mouse or remote at hand. The reason is that the viewer is in charge of the outcome of the story based on the decisions made. At regular intervals, options appear on the screen and the path you choose will determine how the adventure pans out.

The adventure follows a 19-year-old videogame developer named Stefan who is adapting a choose-your-own-adventure book into a digital game. The twisted sci-fi feature steps back into 1984 and looks as dark and disturbing as we have come to expect from Charlie Brooker’s hit series.

The decisions range from what cereal Stefan eats in the morning to bigger decisions which will completely alter the narrative. According to Variety, there are a trillion possible outcomes, making Bandersnatch the perfect episode for a re-watch.
