Unless you’ve been on a serious new year’s digital detox, you’ll have found it hard to miss Netflix’s epic interactive episode of Black Mirror: Bandersnatch. The star-studded interactive episode was created by Charlie Brooker and the Netflix interactive team and aired late December.

Since it landed, fans have been working through the hundreds of branches to alter the storyline. There are five different endings to the episode, so if you’ve reached the hard end, you’ll likely be looking for the next Bander-fix. Well, you’re in the right place. You can now make your own version of Bandersnatch in WIREWAX Studio, our award-winning interactive video builder.  

If that wasn’t cool enough, the WIREWAX team have kindly put together the assets, along with a handy walkthrough guide to get you up and running.

So what are you waiting for? Create your own and share with us using #BanderWAX.
