Review: Black Mirror – Bandersnatch

A little late to the party here, but Bandersnatch is certainly an interesting mix of media. Stefan Butler is a video game programmer prodigy, and he hopes that an adaptation of a Choose Your Own Adventure book called Bandersnatch will be his greatest achievement. But, how to do it?
