A collaboration between Night School Games, Telltale Games and NBC has produced a new game based on the hit US TV show Mr Robot.
Telltale and Night School teased the partnership last week via their social media channels, and today the game has not only been announced but released.
Mr Robot:1.51 exfiltratiOn is described as a “narrative experience” for iOS and Android that sees players using a fictional E Corp Messaging App to take part in events based on the show and hack the multinational company Evil Corp.
The game has been developed by Night School Games, the new studio formed by ex-Telltale and Disney talent, and published by Telltale. The teams worked closely with series writer Kor Adana.
"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 Steve Allison, Telltale’s publishing SVP.
"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."
