Netflix has released an interactive film named Bandersnatch based on the universe of "Black Mirror" on December 28th. This is the first interactive Netflix’s movie: you can make decisions about what happens to the main character onscreen with the help of a mouse or a controller.
We won’t reveal to you the plot to keep the intrigue. We can only say that you’ll have to play the story of computer developer called Stefan in 1984.
First that you’ll need the Netflix account. Second - PlayStation 4 or Xbox One. You can’t watch Bandersnatch via Chromecast, Apple TV, the Windows App and any old hardware device that doesn’t support Netflix software updates such as PlayStation Vita and Nintendo Wii U.
The reviews on the movie are so far mixed. For example, Stuart Heritage, The Guardian, said:
“Fortunately, it works. Bandersnatch is a masterpiece of sophistication. From a user viewpoint, it is seamless… As an experience, it’s remarkable. Even more remarkable, though, is the ambition of storytelling on display.”
It’ll take 40 and 90 minutes from you to end it depends on the different plot choices. If you’re too curious to know every ending, it’ll take almost 5 hours to find them all. It's an excellent alternative to the usual games.
However, while you play, Bandersnatch allegedly takes pictures of your reactions during crucial moments of the episode and plays them during the credits. This feature was noticed by Brian 'BShar' Sharon, who still uses his Kinect.
Users also noted in the comments that such an event took place in the Until Dawn game through PS4 camera.
So, we can suppose that this feature spreads on PS4 too. But still, there is no photo proof for this statement. Brian was too embarrassed to share his pictures with the web.
You can check it out by yourself (we’ll do the same) and share the result with us in the comments down below.
