Much like Jared (from the front-page), I haven't gotten into Mr. Robot yet, but that hasn't stopped me from downloading or enjoying this so far. While Lifeline brought this stuff to life, I think Mr. Robot feels much more...organic right now. I certainly don't feel like I'm talking to a game and I'm kinda intimidated right now. Very cool stuff.

I've watched a couple of episodes and bought all Season 1 on iTunes, so I'll need to do some binge-watching. The pedigree of the developers of Oxenfree and TellTale along with the subject matter was enough of a reason to hit "buy". So far, as someone who been growing bored of the recent batch of text-based mobile games, this one evokes a darker, real-world spin and with enough intrigue that hits closer to home to keep my interest going.

I couldn't get into season 2, but been wanting to play Oxenfree, so this was a no-brainer for me. Enjoying it so far. Feels pretty authentic. I can hear Darlene's voice in my head as I read her texts. Definitely better than some other texting games I've played.

Here's some gameplay video:



Edit: I'm still waiting for something to happen since I last got a message. I hope this game doesn't have too many huge breaks where you're just waiting.

You really should give season 2 another try. It's definately a slow burn at first but things have really picked up in recent episodes (especially last week, which was fantastic).

I love the show and it was just announced that it was renewed for season 3. So that and a new game? Awesome day for Mr. Robot fans!

Not a huge fan of Lifeline games but this is a no brainer for me.

I still might! But I had all the episodes on my DVR and just never wanted to watch it even when I had nothing else to watch (slow summer for TV). My DVR recently imploded and it's all gone. But I may still give it another chance, especially if this game continues to hold my attention.

Been almost an hour since those initial 10 minutes of gameplay. I really hope this isn't the pace of the game. :/

Love the show!

For S2, the first 3 (count the premier as one episode) is a bit slow, mostly focus on Elliot's mental state (not spoiling too much) and relation. Then the latest 2 takes off with a *BOOM*. Trust me!

As for the game: it is kinda like "text" adventure, right?
