Have a say in Netflix
Five interactive series and films
Netflix is not only focusing on interactive entertainment with the new games. Viewers also have a say in series and films.
Netflix recently started its Netflix Games project for Android users, and iOS users will also have access to smartphone games in the future. When is not clear yet, but it’s not the streaming giant’s first foray into the world of interactive entertainment anyway. For some time now, consumers have also been able to watch interactive films and series on the service, in which they can have a say in decisions. Here is a selection of five titles.
“Black Mirror: Bandersnatch”
Probably the best-known production that allows viewers to intervene is “Black Mirror: Bandersnatch” from 2018. The interactive fun around the acclaimed anthology series “Black Mirror” revolves around a young programmer in the 1980s, who doubts reality. Among others, Will Poulter (28), Fionn Whitehead (24) and Craig Parkinson (45) can be seen.
“Minecraft: Story Mode”
“Minecraft” is one of the most successful video games ever. At the end of 2015, the first episodes of the offshoot “Minecraft: Story Mode”, which was developed by Telltale Games, appeared. An implementation for Netflix followed later.
“You against the wilderness”
Bear Grylls (47) is a TV survival icon. Grylls has also worked on several formats for the streaming service in recent years, including the interactive series “Du gegen die Wildnis”, which appeared in 2019. Spectators must actively intervene and try to survive in the jungle, in the ice or in the desert.
“Escape The Undertaker”
With Undertaker (56), a real wrestling legend has already worked on an interactive Netflix special. In “Escape the Undertaker” he lures the tag team The New Day into a trap. Will they make it out of the wrestler’s haunted house alive?
“Headspace: Interactive Relaxation”
“Headspace: Interactive Relaxation” is less exciting. The offer is intended to help you meditate, relax and fall asleep. The format takes viewers, among other things, on a quiet train ride.
