Would you pay for the opportunity to get wrapped up in hacker collective fsociety’s efforts to press the reset button on the world economy, just like they do in the TV show? Well publisher Telltale games and developer Night School Studio is offering just that in the form of a Mr. Robot-themed game that’s available now for Android on the Play store.
Coming out of E3 usurper Gamescom, Mr. Robot:1.51exfiltrati0n.apk spins a new thread from the first series of the TV show. The game sets you in the shoes of protagonist Elliot Alderson, a hacker maybe even more moody and disconnected from society than Watch Dog’s Aiden Pierce.
You’ve stumbled on the a smartphone that belongs to a hacker who’s set on launching an unprecedented cybercrime, one more devastating than anything the world has ever seen. With the hacker’s previously lost phone now in your hands, you find yourself being drawn into the deep dark web being spun by the anarchistic hacker and the infamous fsociety.
Befitting a Telltale game, the story hinges on the decisions you make as you communicate with the fsociety team and other parties via a messaging app installed on the recovered phone. Those decisions will have consequences so pervasive, you likely have trouble guessing the consequence when you find yourself at junction where amoral choices fork.
Free of ads, you’ll only have to pay $2.99 up front to dive into the world on Mr. Robot on your droid. And it’d better be a fairly powerful Android device, as this story-driven game calls for a Mali-T760MP8 GPU and 3GB of RAM to meet the minimum specs.
