Telltale Games Publishes Mr. Robot for iOS and Android

The adventure game studio collaborates with Universal and Night School Studio on a Mr. Robot title.

Telltale Games has announced Mr. Robot: 1.51exfiltratiOn, a new Android and iOS title based on the USA Network television show Mr. Robot. The game is published by Telltale Games and created by Oxenfree developer Night School Studio, in collaboration with the folks behind the TV show. The game is available today on Google Play and the App Store for $2.99.

Mr. Robot: 1.51exfiltratiOn takes place during the first season of Mr. Robot, with the player finding a special smartphone at Coney Island. The phone itself belongs to black hat hacker Darline, who wants her phone back to commit a major cybercrime. The game plays out through messaging app released by the fictional E-Corp, with the players messaging characters at the company to dig deeper into this dark digital underground. Mr. Robot: 1.51exfiltratiOn is played in real-time over the course of a single week.

"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," said Night School Studio co-founder Sean Krankel. "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." "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," said Telltale SVP of Publishing Steve Allison. "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."

It's likely Telltale Games is here as the middleman, using its existing multimedia relationships to bring together developer and brand. On its own, Telltale Games has worked with properties like The Walking Dead, Batman, Game of Thrones, Minecraft, Back of the Future, and Jurassic Park. Leveraging some of that muscle for games from other developers is a smart play.

The Emmy-nominated Mr. Robot is currently in its second season and was recently renewed for a third season. You can catch the first season on Amazon Prime if you're a subscriber. Otherwise, you're kind of out of luck. Shame.

If you see him around a convention, he's not hard to spot: Black guy, glasses, and a tie.
