A new, mysterious case needs to be cracked.
Read Only Memories: Neurodiver

MidBoss is the studio responsible for bringing the world a little mystery adventure title called 2064: Read Only Memories. This original title came out back in 2017 and has earned some overall "Strong" review scores from a number of outlets, even sitting at a "very positive" user score after hundreds of Steam reviews.

The game blended together elements of mystery, crime solving, adventure, and a hefty splash of cyberpunk. This past week, a sequel was announced for 2064. It's called Read Only Memories: Neurodiver and it's set to be a new mystery adventure set in the same world of 2064. Neurodiver is slated to be released on PC and Mac in 2020.

Some familiar faces from 2064: Read Only Memories return in Neurodiver including TOMCAT. They will join new characters like ES88, a telepath, as they work to track down a rogue psychic that is "wreaking havoc on the subconscious minds of the city's inhabitants." To do so, they will need to make use of the Neurodiver to search within memories.

Return to the vibrant cyberpunk world of Neo-San Francisco from 2064: Read Only Memories, filled with friendly and familiar faces including Jess Meas, the gene-spliced, hybrid lawyer, TOMCAT, the notorious hacker, and Lexi Rivers, former police officer turned private eye.

Neurodiver will introduce new characters, locations, and mechanics, including the ability to dive into and change other characters’ memories, as well as overhauled art and an unsolved case to crack with multiple endings.

Take on the role of ES88, a telepath employed by a powerful organization called MINERVA specializing in neurotechnology and extrasensory projection phenomena. In exchange for a procedure arming her with a Neurodiver, a powerful genetically engineered device allowing ES88 to dive into others’ memories, and employment at the agency, ES88 gave up her identity and memories.

A rogue Esper, a naturally gifted psychic, is on the loose and wreaking havoc through the subconscious minds of Neo-San Francisco. Track down this mysterious rogue known as the Golden Butterfly by using the Neurodiver to search the memories in which it hides. Read Only Memories: Neurodiver’s Deep Dive mechanic enables ES88 to identify, manipulate, and unlock information, though overuse can irreparably corrupt her target’s memory.

Set to retro-inspired music from Scarlet Moon artists, this colorful point-and-click adventure explores themes of memory, perception, and identity through the lens of a person who willingly gave up everything she was.

“The mystery of the Golden Butterfly is the perfect opportunity to expand the Read Only Memories universe,” said Cade Peterson, CEO of MidBoss, “Everything fans of 2064 loved is still there: diverse characters, an immersive cyberpunk world, fun puzzles, and a great story.”
