New memories to read (and look at).

Comments

2064: Read Only Memories has released the first issue of its comic sequel, simply titled Read Only Memories. The comic, which is published by IDW, follows the events of the game, and features Lexi Rivers working as a private investigator in a beach town 50 miles away from Neo-San Francisco.

According to the press release description of the issue, "her usual work of tracking down promiscuous partners gets turned upside down when the seemingly simple case of finding a robot’s human lover drops her into the middle of the town’s feuding factions."

The main story in this issue was written Sina Grace, with art by Stefano Simeone. It also features a short story titled Mermaids Don't Cry, written by Mary Kenney and drawn by Christina Antoinette Neofotistou. The 36-page first issue has a standard cover and two variants, all shown below. The comic is available in both physical and digital forms.

Read Only Memories will run for four issues, with the second part releasing in January 2020. A preview of the first issue is available online.

2064: Read Only Memories is an adventure game developed by Midboss, and it received an 8/10 in our 2015 review. Reviewer Daniel Starkey praised the game for its tackling of important issues of identity. "In the face of a world and a society that is still struggling to accept lesbian, gay, bisexual, queer, and transgender people, ROM clearly says that if you can relate to a pretend gender-fluid robot, you can relate and connect with anyone. It's a bold, declarative statement backed with aesthetic skill on nearly every front. ROM is a resounding success and one of the most affecting adventures I've ever had."
