Netflix doing a Choose Your Own Adventure TV show for adults


A Choose Your Own Adventure Netflix show for adults? Excuse me?

It’s happening, according to Bloomberg. It has no name but it has an aim: to put you in control of the storylines you see.

Netflix does this already but in kids titles you probably overlooked. They are Puss in Book: Trapped in an Epic Tale, and Buddy Thunderstruck: The Maybe Pile. I watched Puss in Book because I was, um, researching, and the choices offered were basic, either A or B – fight a tree or fight a god, for instance (that’s an actual example). There were around a handful of them in a 23 minute show.

You use your remote or controller to make your choice, but note, “The Netflix website, Android Devices, Chromecast and Apple TV do not support interactive content at this time.” If you don’t make a selection the programme chooses for you.

And similar for Buddy Thunderstruck.

Choose Your Own Adventure books were an early form of gaming for young readers back in the ’80s and ’90s, when we all had silly hair oh wait I still do. In the books, you’d snake your way through a story by following a page-number daisy trail tied the choices you made.

The brilliant Fighting Fantasy books, written by Games Workshop co-founders Steve Jackson and Ian Livingstone, were very similar.
