After teasing fans on Twitter, the Telltale Publishing and Night School Studio collaboration has been revealed as a text adventure game based on Mr. Robot. The mobile title, Mr. Robot:1.51exfiltrati0n.ipa, is out now on iOS and Android platforms.
This game is set during the show’s first season, and features characters like Elliot and Darlene. Players assume the role of someone who has discovered a smartphone used by the hacking organization. Using a messaging app, players will make choices to target and interact with key characters to bring down the villainous E Corp. You can view a brief teaser that introduces the E Corp messaging app below.

Mr. Robot is one of my favorite shows on TV right now, and lends itself well to this kind of dialogue-heavy gameplay. I will be checking the app out for sure, but it may not be welcoming to those who haven’t seen the show.
