SDCC 2019: MidBoss And IDW Bring You ‘Read Only Memories’, The Comic

by Olly MacNamee

Game developers MidBoss have partnered with IDW Publishing to expand the Read Only Memories universe with an all-new comic book series written by Sina Grace and illustrated by Stefano Simeone, as announced at this year’s SDCC.

Return to the colorful cyberpunk future of Read Only Memories in a brand new story involving sentient AI, love and a web of conspiracy. Taking place in the years between 2064: Read Only Memories and Read Only Memories: Neurodiver, the next upcoming mystery adventure game in the Read Only Memories universe, IDW’s series features Lexi Rivers, formerly a detective and now a private investigator. When a robot arrives at her door seeking a lost lover, she is drawn into a journey to the seemingly peaceful beaches of Santa Cruz.

Set for release in December, it also coincides with the release of 2064: Read Only Memories.

If, like me, you are unfamiliar with this title, then he’s a recap of what the game is all about:

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.

All caught up? Then, look out for the first issue at the end of this year.
