LOS ANGELES, Calif. – “Mr. Robot” is now a video game.
A fake messaging app inspired by the USA Network hacker drama was released Tuesday for mobile devices.
“Mr. Robot:1.51exfiltratiOn” casts players as a stranger who finds a mysterious smartphone and begins communicating with the show’s characters through an app published by the fictional E-Corp.
The game was developed by “Oxenfree” creators Night School Studio and published by Telltale Games . The app’s developers worked on “1.51exfiltratiOn” with “Mr. Robot” creator Sam Esmail and show writer Kor Adana.
The developers say the game takes place over the course of a week.
The popular moody hacker series stars Rami Malek as anti-social computer programmer Elliot Alderson and Christian Slater as the cryptic Mr. Robot. The show is currently in its second season.
