The movie was an absolute delight to watch. This is one movie that's worth starting a Netflix trial over. I absolutely love it that the first interactive film you can watch right now is a Black Mirror film.

A reddit user mapped all the decisions: https://www.reddit.com/r/blackmirror/comments/aa9oym/almost_...

Heh....I though about doing that but decided my time was better spent having a long lie in bed :)

Having just watched this and navigated my way through the movie, I think this is definitely an on-topic subject for discussion on HN. Especially about the use of a (not huge) number of choices that the viewer can make to move the film forward, whilst also taking part in the film.

I thought it was pretty clever.

Clever. No way to pirate this through torrenting or something like that.

I was thinking that first thing... And no meaningful way to accurately archive it for private use or history unless Netflix openly and actively participates.

Btw: wasn't BluRay or some format supposed to define an interactive media metafile or virtual machine player format?

And I'm sure Netflix has a media mastering SDK of some sort like Roku and perhaps Hulu. Maybe someone with a jailbroken iPhone will crack open the Netlfix app and figure out how to extract the interactive player, if it's an HTML5 web-app.
