After being announced earlier this year for Switch, with a Q1 2022 release window, Read Only Memories: NEURODIVER has a new trailer to coincide with being announced for the Xbox Series X|S.
NEURODIVER is the next entry in the cyberpunk point-and-click series, set in Neo-San Francisco (it’s like San Francisco, but NEW), where you will play as ES88, the Neurodiver, trying to hunt down a rogue psychic called Golden Butterfly by exploring the memories of their victims. But you’ll have to be careful — a wrong move could distort and break their memories forever.
Midboss is a self-described “LGBT-focused developer”, and NEURODIVER has a diverse cast of queer characters and plenty of themes exploring the “intersection of human nature with society and technology”, so it sounds like the cyberpunk trope — which is often a contentious one — will be handled with care.
We gave 2064: Read Only Memories an 8/10 back in 2018, so check out our review to see if it’s something you’re interested in. NEURODIVER has updated graphics, too, as well as English and Japanese language support, and voice over.
