Telepathy is one of three known games (the others being Mind Maze and Bionic Breakthrough) developed in 1983-84 for the Atari 2600 Mindlink controller, which would have allowed players to play certain games with their mind! (Well, actually, their facial movements/twitches.) However, the controller and games were scrapped due to the former not working well and causing headaches and dizziness in playtesters.
Fortunately, Telepathy can still be played with a regular controller by pressing Fire, and it's fun and polished for an unreleased demo.
A large Atari logo is present throughout the ROM in chunks at 0x0BA5, 0x0D9E, and 0x0F88. It was likely intended for a title screen or Mindlink calibration screen (both are present in Bionic Breakthrough). The palette has been taken from elsewhere in the ROM.
