Everyone talks about the latest episode in the Black Mirror Anthology series, Bandersnatch, and for good reason; Set in 1984, the interactive department gives you control over important decisions throughout the movie, meaning you can choose how the episode plays out.
Released on Netflix on December 28, Bandersnatch is a natural development of Black Mirror's paranoid depictions of technology – as well as Netflix's growing interest in interactive media on its streaming platform, such as Minecraft: Story Mode. It follows budding game designer Stefan Butler as he adds his own adventure game, Bandersnatch, to the gaming company, Tuckersoft.
In the typical Black Mirror fashion, no stone has been turned off with the creation of a suitable retro-looking website for Tuckersoft, which contains in the episode. Not only that, but you can play one of the games from the episode called Nohzdyve using a ZX Spectrum emulator.
A word of warning tank – it's best not to explore the page until you've seen the incident in case you stumble across some spoilers undisturbed.
How do I play Black Mirror's Nohzdyve games?
What is interesting about the Tuckersoft site is that there are several versions of it out there to explore, reflecting the various possible outcomes of the Bandersnatch itself (front spoilers).
The usual version of the site, which was discovered via a QR code in the episode, announces Tuckersoft's gameplay including Nohzdyve. But on another version of the site, which can be accessed by removing & # 39; www. & # 39; prefix from url, it says that the game was never completed due to a "gloomy tournament of events".
Nohzdyve is a freely falling game where you have to avoid obstacles and collect eyeballs. To play the game, you need to go to the regular version of the site and click on the download button to get the .tap file.
As it is a .tap file, the game can only be played with a ZX spectrum emulator such as Speccy (for uninitiated, the ZX Spectrum was an 8-bit personal home computer released in the UK in the early 80s).
Right now, it doesn't look like the title game Bandersnatch, is available to play anywhere – but with several possible realities, it's probably just a matter of time before it is discovered on an equally blurry site somewhere.
