Mr. Robot:1.51exfiltratiOn 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.

While the game appears to follow the story driven tradition Telltale is famous for, it has a unique fell from the publisher’s recent titles based on Batman, Minecraft, and various other franchises. This new game based on the Mr.Robot universe seems like a modern day imagining of the old Oregon Trail text game I once played on my graphing calculator.

    This is a very cool Interaction Fiction project. It’s worth noting that Telltale isn’t the developer, but the publisher. Night School Studios who made the indie pixel-art story game Oxenfree are the developers and deserve the credit for its design.

    Whoops. Commented prematurely. Credit is given. Just eager to see the Oxenfree team credited as they are wonderful storytellers.
