Choose the story: Netflix introduces innovative new interactive movies

Does anyone else remember those Give yourself Goosebumpos books by R.L Stine?

The 1995 interactive version of the classic Goosebumps tales allowed the reader to choose their own destiny in the books by making choices for the hero or heroine, with the aim of the game being to get the the end of the book safely, defeating all the monsters, tests of logic and chance encounters as you went. 

Now, Netflix is making this process a reality for movie lovers. 

You can now officially choose the twists and turns that your Netflix film takes with their brand new feature.

Netflix has introduced Interactive Storytelling, and has rolled out the experience with a kid's classic, Puss in Boots.

'Netflix members are in control of how the stories unfold,' reads a new post on the Netflix blog. 

'The intertwining of our engineers in Silicon Valley and the creative minds in Hollywood has opened up this new world of storytelling possibilities on Netflix.'

'The children’s programming space was a natural place for us to start since kids are eager to “play” with their favourite characters and already inclined to tap, touch and swipe at screens.'

'They also talk to their screens, as though the characters can hear them. Now, that conversation can be two-way.'

'It’s really about finding the right stories – and storytellers – that can tell these complex narratives and bring them to life in a compelling way.'

This is truly the stuff of our childhood dreams.
