I didn't know anything about this, but apparently this drops on netflix tomorrow. I am IN. Love me some black mirror. Wonder if the rumors will be true...
https://www.theverge.com/2018/12/27/18157399/black-mirror-netflix-special-bandersnatch-trailer-release-dateWhat we do know is that the special will have a distinctly retro feel, as well as a reality-warping plot. The action is set in 1984 and follows a young programmer adapting a “sprawling fantasy novel” — the titular Bandersnatch — into a video game. Pretty soon this task turns into “mind-mangling challenge,” because of course it does.
Back in October, Bloomberg reported that Netflix was planning to release a choose-your-own-adventure episode of Black Mirror some time this year, and many have speculated that this is Bandersnatch. The trailer certainly fits these expectations. It calls the episode an “event,” tells viewers to “change your mind” and “change your life,” and ends with a character stating via voiceover: “Your fate has been dictated.” And, of course, what is a video game apart from a particularly complex choose-your-own-adventure experience.
