I think we’re all still recovering from the madness that Black Mirror: Bandersnatch unleashed on us, but we can keep it going.
In the interactive Netflix movie, we saw the character Stefan work with a company named Tuckersoft, which has dreams of becoming the “Motown of games.” At Tuckersoft, Stefan meets a reputed video game designer named Colin Ritman who gives him a peek of his new game ‘Nohzdyve’, a simple 8-bit game where a player has to collect eyeballs while falling from a building. Weird? Well, that’s Black Mirror for you.
According to a report by The Verge, fans can now play the game, but only by using an emulator. Reportedly, Nohzdyve was developed for the ZX Spectrum, which was a computer that was released in Britain in the early 1980’s. So, the only way to play the game is by downloading a ZX Spectrum emulator. Other emulators that can do the job are Speccy, Qaop and Fuse, the report states.
Black Mirror isn’t the only Netflix show with a game that can be played. There is an Atari-like Stranger Things inspired game too. It gives an inside look on the kind of games kids in the town of Hawkins in the year 1983 would have played.
