Midboss Announces Read Only Memories: Neurodiver

June 19, 2019

Written by Jamie Galea

Since its initial release in 2015, 2064: Read Only Memories has been one of the more popular attempts at creating a cyberpunk universe in the vein of Hideo Kojima’s Snatcher, and available on practically every platform you can think of. After years of ports and major updates, developer/publisher Midboss will be returning to the Read Only Memories universe with a sequel: Read Only Memories: Neurodiver, set to release in 2020.

The game sees you play as a telepath known as ES88 as you track down a rogue psychic known as the Golden Butterfly, who is wreaking havoc in the minds of the citizens of Neo-San Francisco. Your weapon to combat this menace is the Neurodiver, a device that allows you to dive into the minds of others. You’ll be tasked to going into the minds of others and unlocking information, hopefully not prying too deep, as it runs the risk of corrupting the memory of ES88’s targets. Much like its predecessor, Neurodiver will also be a point & click adventure game, and may even feature a few returning characters for fans of the first game.

The game is set to feature the same retro Japanese PC aesthetic that helped to defined its unique look, plus “retro-inspired” music from games music label Scarlett Moon. The game is set to initially release on PC/Mac, but would not be a surprise to us if it would make its way to consoles in the near future.
