But.. why am I talking about it on an arcade blog?
It is a movie (which are videos, right?) it is also an on-rails video game of sorts.
Set in 1984 (because, of course: 1984), Bandersnatch is a choose your own adventure-styled interactive film that follows the journey of a programmer creating a Zork (but with graphics) styled computer game based on a choose-your-own-adventure novel by the same name.
The film is said to have five main endings with many variants on each of the five endings. The story is recursive and meta at times with plenty of exposition on the nature of free will, the possibility that the characters (and viewer) live in a simulation and Government conspiracy. Also, some pretty cheesy but dark Pac-man references.
Charlie Booker apparently spent extra time pouring over Plato’s The Allegory of The Cave playing text adventure games in a cloud of bong smoke.
I say that more out of jealousy in comparison to how I spent my time in 2018. :)
The movie is so meta at times that it becomes meta about its own meta-ness. One ending includes a cassette tape being played that contains Differential Manchester Encoding audio tones (kinda like Modem noises) that when loaded in a ZX Spectrum emulator take you to a QR code that takes you to a link to download a ZX Spectrum game from the movie.
