I just stumbled across this forum while searching for interactive movies (after watching Bandersnatch on Netflix).
I always wondered why I didn't see other interactive movies around. Turns out I just wasn't looking the right places. But they sure have many labels too. "Interactive Movies", "DVD Games", "Full Motion Video Games". Probably more I haven't stumbled across yet.
Bandersnatch was pretty disappointing though. Brilliant idea, but terribly executed in my opinion. I'd like to have a better experience. So my first question is:
What's a good one to check out? Preferably for DVD or Blu-ray, though I have a PS1 and PS3 too, and of course also a Win10 and Linux PC. I just feel that an "interactive movie" should run on a movie-player device, such as a DVD or Blu-ray player.
The only other interactive movie I've tried is "Who shot Johnny Rock" because I found it at a flee market once, and was curious. But I suck at it, and I also found the acting rather cheesy. Dunno if that's the general standard? If not, please advice one with great acting.
I'd love something where there aren't any "wrong" choices as such, but instead just choices that has consequences - without meaning game-over and forcing you to choose "the right way" anyway.
Personally I have a big interest in Blu-ray. Have coded a little retro game as a proof of concept, just to show an example of what can be done with Blu-ray Disc Java (and disprove a lot of false claims here and there online). I've also made a bigger Blu-ray project containing 9 hours of video and 5 hours of music. I'd love to make a Blu-ray FMV game some day, but I have the same problem as everyone else: A million ideas and no time for any of them.
Though I have been out filming different paths of a simple walk, with the idea of creating an interactive walk in nature, allowing the viewer to pick which way to go. Very simple stuff, just to get started. But I never got any further than that.
I saw a post here by someone else who created a FMV game. Anyone else doing any homebrew development in this area?
