Story-rich adventure Read Only Memories: NEURODIVER is out now

By - | Views: 22,572

The sequel to 2064: Read Only Memories has finally arrived with Read Only Memories: NEURODIVER now available with Linux support. No rating for Steam Deck yet but it does have controller support so it should work well.

Take on the role of ES88, a young esper employed by MINERVA, a powerful organization specializing in information science, neurotechnology, and extrasensory phenomena. She has been tasked with tracking down Golden Butterfly, a mysterious psychic entity 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?

While it is a sequel, you don't actually need to have played the first game. The developers said it's the same world but a whole new setting with new characters, but if you're familiar with the first game you'll notice plenty of familiar faces.

This looks pretty cool.
I noticed last time there was an article about this game, and I still find it kind of neat, the way the plot and even setting really seem quite dark, but the characters and approach are very chirpy and cheerful, coming out of a much happier tradition from the gloomy cyberpunk feel one might expect.
