Exploring memories is a major theme of much sci-fi media, but it’s at the core of Read Only Memories: Neurodiver, the forthcoming cyberpunk game from LGBT-focused developer MidBoss.
In this world of Neo-San Francisco memories are malleable. Like a hard drive, files can become corrupt, defragmented, or completely overwritten. And with the help of an Esper, forgotten memories can be recovered – for better or worse.
That computer analogy is fitting for a cyberpunk world of machines and androids, humans and animal hybrids. It’s the same world as the developer’s previous game, 2064: Read Only Memories, and follows a similar adventure structure presented through vibrant pixel art.
