If you're on Netflix, what did you choose? This may be the future.

Ha! I don't know how many endings I went through. It was pretty great though. After each "ending" it brought me back to the place I could make the alternate choice, but I'd have to go back and make a couple different distinct choices to see if there are more endings.

I think the interactive aspect is destined to be a future method of story-telling because it requires attention more than film. What made television so memorable in the early days was because people would be immersed in shows, and didn't divide their attention among so many other things. The biggest distraction might be the phone ringing. Nowadays, every member of a family might have several different distractions.

It is interesting to see how the different choices affect the narrative. It makes the viewer want to go back to see the alternatives.

Up till last year there was a studio called telltale games that made games like this. There was some classic arcade style button mashing action here and there, but the main mechanic was the choices you make affecting the game outcome. They did a walking dead, game of thrones, and Minecraft game that I know of, and some others.

It very much reminded me of those
