If, after propelling yourself through the labyrinth that is Black Mirror: Bandersnatch you find yourself thirsting for more, then Netflix has created a very real website for gaming company Tuckersoft.
To visit Tuckersoft, click HERE.
And, you can play one of their games.
In Bandersnatch, one Stefan Butler (Fionn Whitehead) is tasked with the almighty job of transforming a novel by unhinged author Jerome F. Davies into a choose-your-own-adventure video game.
Tuckersoft also brought a number of other games to the forefront including Metl Hedd and Nohzdyve by popular games developer Colin Ritman (eyebrow man Will Poulter).
There are actually nine games available on the page but as you can see, Bandersnatch has been cancelled… for obvious reasons. A little note at the bottom of the page reads: “A morbid turn of events would lead to the company shutting its doors before the anticipated release of Bandersnatch, an ambitious title in development by the now infamous Stefan Butler.”
So, what can you play?
Nohzdyve! Colin’s game referenced in the film during Stefan’s first day of work.
You’re falling fast through the sky! Collect eyeballs and avoid the buildings and other hazards. Perfection is key. This was truly a five star game by none other than Colin Ritman.
According to Tuckersoft, you can download and play the game on a ZX Spectrum emulator. In short, an emulator allows your computer system to imitate another computer system which is very helpful here because the ZX Spectrum was a PC from the 1980s. Popular ZX Spectrum emulators on Google appear to be Fuse and Speccy.
Tuckersoft.net is very much on brand – the font, the buttons, the graphics, the use of only half the available space. Not to mention the brilliant link to a 1984 Tuckersoft job listing which features the man himself, Asim Chaudhry as Mohan Tucker. Click the ad and you know what comes up? Netflix’s official jobs page.
In case you were wondering, there are 90 jobs available in their engineering department.
Black Mirror: Bandersnatch is available on Netflix now.
Give yourself a few hours, at least three, if you want to have a quality mind-melt.
What’s even real anymore?
