In this episode we discuss the 'full-motion-video' video game Erica, paired with Black Mirror Bandersnatch! Both feature game and movie elements but one is marketed primarily as a game while the other is marketed primarily as a movie. Where do we draw the line between games and movies and does it work in these examples?

Erica released in 2019 and is a full motion video-based interactive film video game developed by Flavourworks and published by Sony Interactive Entertainment. It puts you directly at the heart of the mystery. Your choices, your consequences. You play as Erica who finds herself trying to solve a mystery that traumatized her many years ago.

Black Mirror Bandersnatch released in 2018 by Netflix and shares the same universe as the Black Mirror television series. It is an interactive film set in 1984 where a young programmer starts to question reality while he adapts a mad writer's dark fantasy novel into a video game.
