1984. Stefan is developing a computer game based on the book ‘Bandersnatch’, a novel where you get to make choices and this determines the story. He has an opportunity to take his game to Tuckersoft, a software company, and have them release it. However, the more he works on the game the more his life emulates the game, with choices being made that are out of his control. Stefan appears to be going insane.

User Reviews: The graphics and music were great, and the transition was smooth at the "crossroads". But the story… It didn’t feel like much of a story, and then I felt pushed into making choices that I did not want to make. I think it captured the choose-your-own-path game feeling, but to me that didn’t really feel right in a movie, everything felt too simple and a bit too forced. It’s great that Black Mirror wanted to do something innovative, which this truly is, but because it is Black Mirror all the endings feel wrong. In a game like this, you play for the best outcome, but here, you just play to see what else you can get.
