Netflix launches "choose your own adventure" style cartoons

20 Juin 2017

"Puss in Book" isn't the only show to include the interactive features; an eight-episode series of the "Buddy Thunderstruck" show called "Buddy Thunderstruck: The Maybe Pile", about a hilariously ridiculous competitive-truck-driving dog, will premiere on July 14, and a third series, "Stretch Armstrong: The Breakout" is in the works.

Netflix has finally unveiled its long-rumoured "adventure story"-style titles that let you, the viewer, choose what happens next in the story".

According to Netflix's Director of Product Innovation, Carla Engelbrecht Fisher, the children's programming space was a natural place to start with this kind of innovation. "Being an internet-based company enables us to innovate new formats, deliver at scale to millions of members all over the world on multiple device types and, most importantly, learn from it". Choose by touching the screen on a mobile device or pressing the corresponding arrow on a smart TV remote and voila - you just influenced the story.

She added: "We have tested with kids as young as four but they often had younger siblings there and they all understand touch screens and they love that they get to choose and pick". 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", says Engelbrecht Fisher. In this story, Puss becomes trapped in a book of fairy tales. You know, the ones where you would flip to different pages depending on which choice you made?

As usual, Murray isn't seeking the limelight for his generosity, but several newspapers carry the story of his extraordinary gesture today.

For those who have ever played any of Telltale's video games like The Walking Dead or Guardians of the Galaxy, Puss in Book looks like it functions in the same way. "We'll see where things go".

Netflix is about to find out Tuesday with the release of its new interactive storytelling feature.
