Anyone growing up in the 1980’s probably had a ‘Choose Your Own Adventure’ book at some point – a story book where at the end of a chapter you get to choose what the main character does next. Choose the wrong option and your story could end up rather short but that didn’t matter because next time you could pick completely different options and get a completely different story. Earlier this year Netflix released two interactive children’s shows, “Puss in Book: Trapped in an Epic Tale” and “Buddy Thunderstruck: The Maybe Pile” where at key points in the story the viewer has to select an option for what to do next.
Now, according to Bloomberg, Netflix are experimenting with a similar show but for adults. Obviously there will be a lot of work involved in writing multiple storylines as well as recording multiple parts from various actors but can you imagine an episode of “Stranger Things” played out in this way?!
It could be a fun thing to try or it could be a complete failure and not take off; but I’d be willing to give it a try just for fun. How about you?
