About 2064: Read Only Memories

Neo-San Francisco, 2064 AD. Your life as a struggling journalist is interrupted by the world’s first sapient machine, a ROM (Relationship and Organizational Manager) named Turing. Together, you and the quirky robot will encounter a colorful cast of locals and overcome challenges as you uncover the city’s secrets behind the overlapping futures of technology and humanity. 2064: Read Only Memories is a new cyberpunk adventure that will take you on a journey of puzzle-solving and exploring as you investigate the mysterious world and characters of Neo-San Francisco.

Inspired by classics like Gabriel Knight: Sins of the Father and Snatcher, 2064: Read Only Memories is a retrofuturistic take on the point-and-click adventure genre that features a rich mature narrative and unique gameplay challenges hidden within the beautiful interactive pixel scenes. The deeper you delve into the life of your missing friend, the further you get entangled into this tale about the dark side of technology. Can you survive in Neo-SF? Or will the mystery go unsolved…?

Background & Inspiration

Through their work on GaymerX and Gaming In Color, several members of MidBoss felt inspired to answer the challenge and make a game on their own. 2064: Read Only Memories is the result of our eagerness to highlight that it is possible and easy to celebrate diversity in a realistic way that is also a fun, deep game. There are many unheard voices in video games that are seeking diverse stories that are relatable, so instead of waiting for AAA companies to crusade for progressive themes in their games, we decided to form a team and make the kind of game that we want to see. We believe it is important for games to feature queer and diverse characters and themes in a positive way.

Through 2064: Read Only Memories, we explore how these topics can be handled in a way that doesn’t override the core goal of making a game fun, interesting, and engaging. These elements were a perfect fit to include in an adventure game, and we believe we have been successful in revitalizing the classic point-and-click genre through a progressive modern viewpoint.
