Hey backers, this is Matt Conn, executive producer for Read Only Memories.
On October 6, 2015, we released ROM to the public and to you the backers. I want to thank you all personally for backing this game before we even had a completed demo, for believing in the idea, the team, and the vision. We would not have gotten this far without you, and whether you backed it because you liked the type of game or the message we wanted to send, thank you for backing and believing.
As backers, you are the most important part of our experience – so if you didn’t get a code, or need anything from us, reach out to us ANY time at firstname.lastname@example.org. We know humble codes went out late, and we’re SO sorry about that delay. We’re also super sorry that our game grew a bit out of scope, getting delayed to Oct 6, 2015, but we’re glad we got it out and right now it’s getting great reviews, but we can always use more if you have a second on Steam or Metacritic!
If you’re waiting on an OUYA version, we will be releasing the game on OUYA, Razer Forge, and select Android TVs around Nov 2. After that, consoles (PS Vita, PS4, Xbox 1) and Mobile (Android/iOS) will be in the coming few months. During that time, we’ll be making improvements to the game, animation improvements and new easter eggs, that will be updated for future versions and current versions for free. There may also potentially be side story DLC as well in the pipeline, depending on how the wind howls.
We really need your help at this point – one more time! Right now the game is getting great reviews but what really matters is WORD OF MOUTH! If you really dug ROM and want to see more games like this get made, we need to get the word out wide and far! Do a let’s play! Do fan art! Tell your friends! We want to keep doing more Read Only Memories stuff and want to inspire other people to make weird, retro and queer games as well! So please please please, help spread the word and Turing and ALPHiE will give you so many digital kisses.
One last time, we just want to thank you for taking a chance with us and for helping make Read Only Memories happen and be the best game it can be. Even if the game doesn’t become a big success, you helped create this vision with us, and helped so many people work on a game we all felt so passionate and loving about, and we wouldn’t have had that opportunity without your help.
