Read Only Memories: NEURODIVER – Launch Trailer

“Just” five years after its initial announcement, the long-awaited followup to the critically acclaimed 2064: Read Only Memories will finally bring fans back to the vibrant streets of Neo-San Francisco filtered through a 16-bit lens. Boasting an all-new story, Read Only Memories: NEURODIVER introduces fans to a new cast of characters… as well as some returning favourites! 

Join ES88, a young esper, as she works to uncover a dark secret lurking in Neo-San 

Francisco. Employed by MINERVA, a powerful organization specializing in information science, neurotechnology, and extrasensory phenomena, ES88 has been tasked with tracking down the mysterious psychic entity known as Golden Butterfly, who has been hiding in and fragmenting the memories of Neo-San Francisco’s citizens. Who are they? Why are they doing this? And how will you stop them?

Your ticket to Neo-San Francisco is available on PC via Steam, PlayStation®5, Xbox One (S/X Compatible) and Nintendo Switch™ for $14.99 / €14.79 / £12.79. 

Additionally, Chorus Worldwide and MidBoss are offering a Complete Edition Bundle on Steam, which includes not just a copy of Read Only Memories: NEURODIVER, but also the following additional items:

Visual Works: To showcase the artwork in NEURODIVER, “Read Only Memories: NEURODIVER Visual Works” dives into concepts, designs, key art, animation frames, and much more from the game. Compiled by MidBoss’ creative director and lead artist, John “JJSignal” James, this collection is a must-have for fans curious about peeking behind the scenes at the visuals that would eventually paint the pixelated world of Read Only Memories: NEURODIVER!

Original Game Soundtrack: Dive into the bright, glossy and rich tones of Neo-San Francisco with 22 original tracks composed by Ken “coda” Snyder. Let the silicon streets of the city come to life in your ears as each song sets the hearts of classic Yamaha FM chips on FIRE! Long live the power of FM synthesis!
