One other thing you can observe is, there’s a very thin path which leads to a 5 out of 5 rating for Bandersnatch video game. The good thing is, you have the user at your fingers with so many roadblocks. The bad thing is, people would stop trying it. People love suspense, so the chances of them checking the choices are pretty high. Quite a bold move from Netflix, something we all can agree upon.
From a personal perspective, this is so exciting. This is like a combination of a movie and a video game. We need to pay attention to every single detail and concentrate. But, we can’t obviously watch movies like this on a daily basis. It’s something we all can try out on a Sunday Afternoon with kids, provided the content is safe.
For those of you still confused about what Netflix’s Black Mirror: Bandersnatch is all about, then it’s an interactive film. As the film proceeds, the user has an option of making choices, selecting the right choices will lead you further down the path.

The average viewing is around 90 minutes while the quickest path ends in about 40 minutes. There’s a 150 minutes of total video content divided into 250 pieces.

When a player reaches one of the endings, he has the option to change the previous option and check out the new variant. Sounds interesting? Why don’t you give the game a try?
