Published Oct 01, 2018Netflix has previously toyed around with interactive, choose-your-own-adventure style content (including a forthcoming Minecraft series), but they're going to outdo themselves later this year. After all, if there's one place to find out if a new technology is good or bad, it's the show that merely exists to ask whether technology is good or bad.
That's right, later this year we will get an interactive episode of Charlie Brooker's tech dystopia anthology Black Mirror. The news was first reported by Bloomberg.
While details are unclear, it's safe to assume that the episode will be called something like "The Illusion of Choice" and will allow users to pick what happens to the characters before they inevitably get trapped in some sort of holographic hell world. And then you, the user, will also become trapped.
Season 5 of Black Mirror is expected to arrive in December.
