Interactive books , otherwise known as Create Your Own Adventure books have been around since 1979. This series of books were created to allow readers to make decisions that would impact the ending of the story. On December 28, 2018 Netflix released the first interactive movie of the century, Black Mirror: Bandersnatch. The movie is a psychological thriller that is set in 1984 United Kingdom, spanning over the months of July through December. It stars Fionn Whitehead (Stefan Butler), Alice Lowe (Dr. R. Haynes), Will Poulter (Colin Ritman), Craig Parkinson (Peter Butler), and Asim Chaudhry (Mohan Thakur). The movie contains a multitude of Black Mirror Easter eggs, along with an interesting plot line, an undetermined ending, and a different view on the concept of time and free will, with all of this, this Netflix original movie is worth the watch.

Time travel has just been invented and multiple reports of people trying to go back in time and erase the “Where’s Waldo” books from history to save themselves from the hours of eye strain and headaches. Personally you loved the Waldo books, and consider going to save them. The only problem is in order to save the books, you have to create a completely different version. While you have the creative skills to come up with ideas, you don’t have the art skills to design the books, and most of your creative talents go into making video games. Do you let the time travelers erase Waldo’s history, or do you spot a way to make another version of the books you loved?
