Read Only Memories: NEURODIVER is the long-awaited sequel to indie hit point-and-click adventure game 2064: Read Only Memories. It was announced way back in the ancient year of 2019 but was announced for consoles earlier this year. The game is due out sometime in 2022 but in the meantime we’ve been treated to a brand new teaser trailer.
The trailer is short and moves fast but it gives us a deeper look at main protagonist and “psychic detective” ES88 and what she’ll be doing in the game. We also get a look at some of the diverse cast of characters that you will be meeting as ES88.
The new trailer from queer-focused production company MidBoss highlights psychic protagonist ES88 and some of the diverse cast she meets as she helps repair people’s memories with the assistance of a bioengineered psychic creature, the Neurodiver. Her organization MINERVA is on the hunt for Golden Butterfly, a rogue psychic hiding away in the minds of others, slowly corrupting their memories.Press Release

However, the presence of Golden Butterfly in these characters’ minds is quickly corrupting their memories. So you have to be timely about it.
