Mr. Robot launches web-based game
Fans of the hit show can now enhance their experience with Understanding The Endgame.
It’s so often the case that video games based off TV properties are cheap cash-ins designed to sell on name brand value alone. That’s not the way that the producers of Mr. Robot have taken the show’s first game, a free web-only game that references key moments in the show’s history across six "chapters" of a virtual book titled Understanding The Endgame. Don't go in expecting cutting edge graphics however, as everything is presented in a pixelated style more reminiscent of mid-90s PC gaming.
Each chapter/level of the game presents a different contextual challenge to overcome, none of which are terribly hard but which provide some nice nods to series continuity if you’re an avid watcher of the show. At the same time, some could perhaps view them as spoilers, after a style. It’s not the first time the show has used mystery, games and the web to push viewers further down the Mr. Robot rabbit hole, including an innovative Mr Robot VR experience.
You can play Understanding The Endgame now, presuming your boss isn’t watching over your shoulder.
