Black Mirror's latest release, the Bandersnatch special event, is now available and offers Netflix viewers a Black Mirror experience unlike any others. The tech-horror series has incorporated video games into its plot in the past, but this is the first time viewers are actually able to interact with the episode and directly impact the outcome of the self-contained story.
Warning: Bandersnatch Spoilers ahead...
Like most choose your own adventure style narratives, Bandersnatch has many branching story paths and tons of different endings. Although some viewers may settle for the first ending they stumble into, the gamers out there will likely want to see every possible ending, especially the one that earns Bandersnatch a 5-star review after the game's release.
Luckily, some hardcore fans have already managed to put together an incomplete flowchart guide for how to reach each of the possible endings... At least the ones that have been discovered so far. It should go without saying that reading through the flowchart will spoil tons of plot points and every possible decision. If you're still interested, read on...
Netflix has now released Bandersnatch and Minecraft Story Mode and its first entries into interactive storytelling on the streaming platform. Although Minecraft Story Mode hasn't made quite the same splash, Bandersnatch definitely has proven that there is an audience for this type of experience. It will be very interesting to see what other interactive programming Netflix has planned and how hard the company will lean into the gaming lane.
Black Mirror's Bandersnatch event is available now exclusively on Netflix.
