Netflix announced today that they will be premiering an all-new animated, interactive special from the creators of Pinky Malinky, Rikke Asbjoern and Chris Garbutt. We Lost Our Human will allow viewers to decide whether they are cat people or dog people in this new choose-your-own-adventure comedy.

We Lost Our Human is a 2D-animated feature special that will allow audiences to choose whether or not to follow a self-involved cat named Pud or a loving, hyperactive dog named Ham as they wake up one day and realize that their human, and in fact all humans, have mysteriously disappeared off the face of the Earth.

From the press release:

Desperate to find their owner, these two homebound pets venture out into the world for the first time to discover strange mysteries, meet bizarre creatures and maybe – with the audience’s help – save the universe along the way!

The special stars Ben Schwartz as Pud and Ayo Edebiri as Ham and includes Adrienne C. Moore, Lauren Tom, Jon Glaser, Henry Rollins, Lucas Grabeel, and Matty Cardarople. Rikke Asbjoern and Chris Garbutt will serve as creators, executive producers and directors and wrote the screenplay alongside Laura Sreebny and Nick Arciaga.

“Creating a huge interactive project has been an exciting challenge and gave us a unique chance to approach Pud and Ham’s story outside of a traditional format,” said Rikke Asbjoern and Chris Garbutt in a joint statement. “We got to explore their many parallel and interwoven paths, which resulted in our story room becoming a complex web of post-it notes, push pins and string. Quite a dizzying sight for anyone witnessing one of our story pitches!”

Said Curtis Lelash, Director of Original Animation for Netflix, “We Lost Our Human combines the very best of animation, comedy and interactivity, expanding the possibilities of how stories are told today. We can’t wait for audiences of all ages to take this hilarious journey with Pud and Ham, because their fate rests in the audiences hands…literally.”

We Lost Our Human is not the only interactive title currently on Netflix. Black Mirror: Bandersnatch is one of the more popular, but it was not the first to utilize the unique format that creates an individual experience for the viewer.
