Alexa Holds the Key to a New Mr. Robot Interactive Experience
As any Mr. Robot fan knows, things just haven’t been the same since the Five/Nine Hack.
Now, you can step inside a post-Five/Nine world with a new Mr. Robot-inspired skill, available only on Alexa-enabled devices. Called the “Mr. Robot: Daily Five/Nine,” this exclusive interactive story game was conceived by Mr. Robot creator Sam Esmail and was penned by writers from the show. And just like Mr. Robot itself, not everything in the “Daily Five/Nine” is always what it’s presented to be.
“The ‘Daily Five/Nine Skill’ for Alexa was developed very much as an extension of the story world of the show,” said Mr. Robot writer Randy Leon. “The experience begins as a Five/Nine report, similar to something you’d see in the show. But of course, this being Mr. Robot, nothing is quite as it seems, and it soon devolves into something quite different, and perhaps much more sinister, than what you were expecting.”
Players will be taken on an unexpected adventure through the “Daily Five/Nine Skill” and experience the mind-bending narrative of Mr. Robot like never before -– calling the shots from moment to moment and possibly encountering characters from the show along the way.
“This was a ton of fun to write and I really think this new technology let us create something unique that lets the player live the Mr. Robot story in an exciting way," Leon added.
To get started, just ask Alexa to enable the “Daily Five/Nine Skill” and follow the instructions from there.
