It’s a Friday night. I’m home alone. I’m feeling sick and I’ve just finished watching Bandersnatch on Netflix, the new Black Mirror movie/event. It’s a choose your own adventure, interactive movie and it’s quite impressive. Review to follow, I assure you. However, while watching it, I couldn’t help but draw parallels between Stefan’s efforts to build a “choose your own adventure” game and the chatbot, Gé, I built for Christmas.
So I did the most normal thing in the world. I build a half-arsed chatbot that brings you through all, or maybe most, of the possible storylines in Bandersnatch.
Warning: This obviously contains a shed-load of spoilers so please do watch the film/show/event thing first!
