Guerrilla Collective Trailer Unveils Simultaneous Launch with PC, Mac in Q1 2020
SAN FRANCISCO – 15 June, 2020 – Read Only Memories: NEURODIVER, the next cyberpunk point-and-click adventure from MidBoss, will come to Xbox One and PlayStation 4, as revealed in today’s Guerrilla Collective showcase. The sequel to 2064: Read Only Memories, which sold more than 200,000 copies, concurrently releases on all platforms including the previously announced PC and Mac versions in Q1 2021.
Re-enter the vibrant and inclusive metropolis of Neo-San Francisco, filled with familiar locations and fan-favorite characters including former police detective Lexi Rivers, elite hacker TOMCAT, and genetically-altered lawyer Jess Meas. Explore a brand new story delving into perception, reality and identity.
The powerful organization MINERVA’s latest breakthrough, a genetically engineered creature called the Neurodiver, can probe deep into the subconscious mind. Guide MINERVA agent ES88, capable of using the Neurodiver’s Deep Dive to access and directly interact with memories, as she tracks down a rogue psychic known as the Golden Butterfly.
Find clues to the strange and powerful Golden Butterfly’s whereabouts in the subconscious minds of Neo-San Francisco’s citizens. Alter the corrupted memories of the Golden Butterfly’s victims to find traces of its next target before the villain flits away. Uncover key information in the minds of cyberpunk citizens while practicing caution, for the Neurodiver’s Deep Dive could cause irreparable damage to a person’s consciousness if overused.
“Building new mechanics for NEURODIVER has allowed us to approach the hopeful cyberpunk world we’ve created from new angles,” said Cade Peterson, CEO of MidBoss, “As a diversity-first studio, creating empathy for all kinds of perspectives is part of our mission, and the Deep Dive will allow us to really explore our beloved characters from the inside out.”
Read Only Memories: NEURODIVER will be available on PlayStation 4, Xbox One and Steam for PC and Mac. The Steam page is now live and available for wishlisting. For more information and updates follow MidBoss on Twitter and the studio’s blog.
Based out of San Francisco (although not the Neo kind), MidBoss aims to make the world better, safer and more inclusive for marginalized people, especially those across the gender and sexuality spectrum, by creating cool experiences through games and other forms of media which diversify representation, as well as becoming a platform for queer content around the world.
MidBoss expanded on the world it created in 2064: Read Only Memories with a Read Only Memories comic series in late 2019. The studio is also responsible for the creation and curation of Summer of Pride, an annual month-long celebration of diversity in games featuring titles with good LGBTQ+ representation and an array of queer and POC content creators.
