In case you can’t get enough of USA’s Mr. Robot, Telltale Games recently partnered with Night School Studio (Oxenfree) to bring the world of evil corporations and hacking to life in a mobile game for iOS and Android. That’s right: Mr. Robot is now a game that you can play on your smartphone.
Available today, Mr. Robot:1.51exfiltratiOn will let players join fscoiety in taking down Evil Corporation. Gameplay involves the mysterious E Corp Messaging App, allowing players to recover critical data in real time to help hack the evil multinational company.
“We’re some of the biggest fans in the world of what Sam Esmail and the teams at Universal Cable Productions and USA have created with this series,” Night School Studio co-founder Sean Krankelsaid in a press release.”Working hand in hand with Sam, series writer Kor Adana and UCP, we’ve created an opportunity for players to meaningfully interact with characters like Elliot (Rami Malek), Darlene (Carly Chaikin) and Cisco(Michael Drayer), truly feeling like they’re joining the hack at a critical moment in the TV series. As fans, it’s nothing short of a dream come true for us.”
Mr. Robot:1.51exfiltratiOn gives fans a way to interact with the show in an entirely new interactive way. Night School Studio is the perfect developer for the game, too: anyone who played their previous title, Oxenfree, knows that they understand how to tell a story that becomes more and more immersive as you play it.
“Night School Studio is one of the most promising small developers in the industry, and seeing Telltale alumnus and writer Adam Hines writing alongside the team at UCP and USA on an interactive story with our partners at NBCUniversal makes us proud to present this to Mr. Robot and Telltale fans everywhere,” Telltale Games SVP Steve Allison said. “There’s a distinct Telltale style to all of the character interactions that our fans will find familiar, and fans of the show will be engrossed all through the night as they race to help fsociety pull off the unthinkable.”
