Telltale games and NBCuniversal Brand Development released today Mr. Robot:1.51 exfiltratiOn for iOS and Android devices. The game was developed by the acclaimed independent team at Night School Studio in collaboration with the creative team behind Universal Cable Productions (UCP) and USA Network’s Emmy®-nominated series MR. ROBOT.
Mr. Robot 1.51 exfiltratiOn extends the narrative experience of the award-winning TV series, allowing players to become personally intertwined with the characters of the underground hacker group, fsociety. Players will be using the mysterious new E Corp Messaging App over the course of a week, playing in real time, and carefully communicating with its members as they race to recover data that is critical to their goals of hacking the multinational company Evil Corp.
The buildup of excitement for this game is everywhere. “Ever since MR. ROBOT burst onto the scene, fans have been looking for new ways to immerse themselves more deeply into its story and overall experience,” said Richard Rothstein, Executive Vice President, Current Programming, Universal Cable Productions. “This game does just that, giving players a chance to interact with the series characters on a journey only possible in the world of MR. ROBOT.”
Mr. Robot follows Elliot Alderson (Rami Malek), a cyber-security engineer who becomes involved in the underground hacker group fsociety, after being recruited by their mysterious leader (Christian Slater). Following the events of fsociety’s five/nine hack on multi-national company Evil Corp, the second season explores the consequences of that attack as well as the illusion of control. Mr. Robot 1.51 exfiltratiOn is available for $2.99 on the iOS App Store and the Google Play store.
