Forget WhatsApp, Facebook Messenger, and Kik. Now, you can download a messaging app straight from the world of USA's hit series Mr. Robot. AV Club reports that USA has released a Mr. Robot game for Android, packaged as an instant messaging app from E Corp (a.k.a. Evil Corp in the show).

Titled “Mr. Robot:1.51exfiltrati0n.apk,” the game looks and feels a lot like a regular messaging app: Players receive texts from hackers and must attempt to pry information from E Corp employees. Set during the first season of Mr. Robot, the game lets players interact directly with Darlene, Elliot, and other fsociety hackers as they attempt to take down the massive technology and banking company and “reset the world.” Not only does the game encourage players to lie and steal from E Corp, it puts them into Elliot’s paranoid mindset, forcing them to take steps to protect their own information from falling into the wrong hands.

“Mr. Robot:1.51exfiltrati0n.apk” costs $3 with no in-app purchases, and is distributed by Telltale Games, which also released game adaptations of The Walking Dead and Batman.
