YouTube Originals has debuted the trailer for its first interactive special, A Heist with Markiplier.
Launching Oct. 30, the special tasks viewers with robbing the world’s most secure museum by controlling the life-or-death decisions of YouTube influencer, Markiplier. The first-person narrative comprises 61 videos leading to 31 possible endings, including, in some instances, the content creator’s demise.
Choose-your-own-adventure is a budding genre that was recently popularized by Netflix’s Black Mirror: Bandersnatch. A Heist with Markiplier follows the influencer’s 2017 series, A Date with Markiplier, which premiered on his personal channel and led to 10 possible endings.
A Heist with Markiplier is executive produced by Mark Fischbach, Matt Hullum, Burnie Burns, and Ryan P. Hal.
