From Night School Studio, the award-winning creators of Oxenfree, comes Mr. Robot:1.51exfiltrati0n.ipa. Taking place during the first season of USA Network’s Golden Globe Award-winning drama, you find a smart phone on the ground outside the Fun Society Arcade at Coney Island. Little do you know that the phone belongs to Darlene, a black hat hacker who’s about to commit the biggest cybercrime the world has ever seen… and she needs her phone back to do it.
Become embroiled in the world of fsociety, a renegade hacker group determined to “reset the world,” by texting different employees of their target corporation: E-Corp, a massive global tech company.
Steal, cheat and lie your way through this technological minefield while dealing with Elliot’s fractured personality, and trying to keep your own information safe.
In Mr. Robot:1.51exfiltrati0n.ipa, you’ll use the E-Corp messaging app to communicate in real time with characters from the show, making dialog choices that directly affect how the story flows. Make a choice then live with the far-reaching consequences in this hi-tech narrative drama driven by YOU.

What's New in Version 1.0.6
-Potential fix for Henry Cohen never returning and characters repeating dialog
Too many game-stopping errors.
I have played this three times and always get stuck at the end of the second hack. I've chosen different options, but I still get to a point where the second hack "goes through" but for the people checking on progress, there are only options to communicate failure. I am aware that the second hack is kind of "two-parted" and yes I have finished the second part each time.
This is essentially a text adventure and it's obvious the recent patch either didn't fix the game or introduced new errors. The contingencies are buggy to the point of not being playable. There is also a point where they start talking about "Elliott" when there had been no plot-related discovery that they is E's full name. Either testing didn't do their job or the project manager just decided to ship and unfinished game. If they don't want to restore this game to working they should pull it. $2.99 is way too much. Telltale support just says to bomb the game and start over
The other annoyance with this game is that it's trying to be "real-time", but we are talking like 15 hour stretches. On subsequent play thoughts this is totally unnecessary. On the first play through these are still way too long, to the point where you think the game is hung. It would also be nice to be able to back up to a recent decision point. Take a page from the Lifeline series of games.
Well written but flawed
This is a pretty clever idea for a game, the interface fits the game, and the dialogue is very well written (well, a lot of it is very poorly written but that is to the writers' credit). In fact, one of the challenging parts of the game is that many of the characters are so annoying that it is a little annoying to interact with them (again to the writers' credit). They even seem to be annoying to each other. There were a few times when I was thinking "oh my f'ing god, just shoot me." Well done. Unfortunately, there are some problems. The game is a little buggy. At one point the dialogue seemed to force me into a dead end, then it just started replaying the recent events that got messed up. It was almost as if the game started from a previous save point, so, not game-breaking, but it was strange to see a bunch of the previous conversations repeated twice in my message logs... Also, the central conceit of the game requires one of the main characters (who is paranoid, very observant of human behavior, etc.) to not recognize that you are not who you seem to be. There are story-related reasons to support that, but it still didn't sit quite right for me. 3.5 rounds to 4.
This "game" was good until I couldn't finish it.
Over the past week, I've enjoyed playing through this experience. It's a lot of fun to get random text notifications on a daily... and nightly basis. That said, there are some things that Telltale could have improved to make this truly immersive. While the app does feel like a typical texting app, the lack of swipe to go back really destroys the user experience. Furthermore, the app doesn't behave like a normal texting app (or any app for that matter) and often requires several more taps than necessary to complete simple tasks. On a completely separate note, Henry got stuck and won't give me any indication that he is able to complete the task that he is supposed to. That said, I have not been able to finish the game yet and am completely in the dark with how the story ends. At this point my only option is to reset the entire experience and start back at square one and re-experience everything that I've already accomplished. My only wish is that quality control for this game was a little tighter so that I could enjoy a truly immersive Mr. Robot hacker-wanna-be experience.
