Who's watched it? Thoughts? (Without spoilers?)

If you've not seen/played it you need to give it a go. It's a feature length black mirror episode but it's interactive similar to the adventure books where you have to choose which page to turn to.

It should interest people on here as the key theme is free will/ free will in video games.

It's the biggest mind **** ever.

    Seen this idea done before. There's a feature length movie where you make the decisions that lead to alternate endings. Could never get into black mirror tho. Might just watch this episode for the craic.

    It is both and also more of a futuristic settings. Kind of predicts where humanity is heading/going.

    It’s more like a choice thing, there’s a few different ways the story goes and how you choose changes that. Can just watch it on anything like normal

    The controller vibrates when you have to make a choice, and the opening scene is a voice talking to you about needed to make the decision with a controller.

    So probably does need to be on console.

    Maybe, maybe not. Depends on the TV.

    Just tried it on my phone and it just plays a trailer that says it can't be watched on this device and shows a TV, computer and phone.

    Then it says watch it on the newest: smart TV, laptop, or games console.

    Nothing like that, it's bit more drama, suspense etc

    You get the odd episode that is scary/mind F.

    Great concept, awful ending.
    Girl should have had the crazy eyes and tries to open boys eyes, forcing Sandra Bullock to kill her.

    Or at the very least right at the end it should have shown the girl have crazy eyes.

    In general the black mirror series is social commentary on how technology obsessed we are becoming and what could wrong. Very thought provoking.

    Imagine a sci-fi banksy TV show.
