San Francisco-based developer Midboss has announced that their cyperpunk adventure 2064: Read Only Memories is coming to the PS Vita and the PS4 on August 16, 2016 digitally via the PlayStation Network featuring Cross-Buy support.
Set in Neo-San Francisco nearly fifty years into the future, 2064: Read Only Memories takes players on a whirlwind adventure as they work to uncover the mystery of what happened to the creator of their adorable robot friend Turing, the world’s first sapient machine. Meeting and interacting with a diverse and dynamic cast of people all with complex personalities, players will solve puzzles and investigate this futuristic world, while making choices that determine their trajectory throughout the game.
As players delve deeper into the narrative of this point and click game, they’ll find themselves entangled in a thought provoking story riddled with important life questions, but few answers. Players will need to make choices that ultimately determine if they and Turing are able to survive in Neo-SF, and evaluate how they feel about the inevitable future entanglement of humanity and technology.
With vastly contrasting pixelated art and a futuristic story, 2064: Read Only Memories challenges players not only to solve the mystery to save their friend, but to evaluate their feelings on complicated and incredibly relevant issues about what it means to be human, the dark side of technology, and how discrimination can have a larger-scale impact on the world.
Nearly four months earlier than the December release date promised to fans, the August 16th PS Vita and PS4 launch includes a hugely diverse voiceover cast of 29 people, including UpUpDownDown’s Austin Creed (a.k.a. WWE Superstar Xavier Woods), and The Walking Dead’s Melissa Hutchison.
