Black Mirror: Bandersnatch surprised audiences when it dropped on Netflix last week.

The feature-length episode set in the 1980s tells the story of a young game-developer tasked with adapting a fantasy novel into a hit game. When the trailer dropped shortly ahead of its release on 28 December 2018, fans of Charlie Brooker’s twisted British sci-fi series were immediately impressed. The stand-alone film boasted a cast featuring Asim Chaudhry, Will Poulter, Fionn Whitehead and many more; but that wasn’t all. Brooker’s Black Mirror is renowned for shocking audiences, and managed to do so brilliantly with the reveal that Bandersnatch would actually allow the audience to decide the narrative.

The interactive film allows the viewer to determine the outcome of the story, giving them options through which to progress the narrative. By doing so, Bandersnatch becomes an experience which can offer numerous outcomes; everyone’s viewing experience is unique. It’s certainly an ambitious project, and many have flocked to social media to share the details of their participation in this cinematic experiment. 

It has been thrilling to read about all of the endings that have been accessed so far, but one has certainly stolen the spotlight. Reportedly, there is a combination of choices which allows you to access an exclusive interactive game. The sequence which allows you to do so is detailed below:
