I bought Read Only Memories on Steam a few months ago. Absolutely loved it. I have not done many games of this style, click to point or interactive novel or whatever its called. But this game kept pulling me back night after night to get more of the story. Great characters, great setting. The art is awesome and I enjoyed the sounds as well. If you're on the fence I say go for it!
2064: Read Only Memories
A downloadable game for Windows, macOS, and Linux
Neo-San Francisco, 2064 AD. Your life as a struggling journalist is interrupted by the world's first sapient machine, a ROM (Relationship and Organizational Manager) named Turing. Together, you and the quirky robot will encounter a colorful cast of locals and overcome challenges as you uncover the city's secrets behind the overlapping futures of technology and humanity. 2064: Read Only Memories is a new cyberpunk adventure that will take you on a journey of puzzle-solving and exploring as you investigate the mysterious world and characters of Neo-San Francisco.
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.

More about the Sights & Sounds of Neo-SF Deluxe Edition
Sights of Neo-SF (Artbook)
The world of 2064 can be hard to navigate. The Sights of Neo-SF is the official art book by Read Only Memories director and lead artist John "JJSignal" James. Highly stylized and specific in its visuals, ROM's progression from early sketches to final form is fully outlined in this 26-page PDF. You will see early concepts fully realized, previous versions of your favorite characters and even some characters that didn't make the final cut. JJ lists Bubblegum Crisis, Akira, Megazone 23, and the Pluto manga as his biggest style inspirations. Come see where the ideas behind the game began and watch them evolve into the vibrant city of Neo-SF we know and love.
Sounds of Neo-SF (Soundtrack)
Composed by 2 Mello, the Sounds Of Neo-SF is the FM-synthy, funky, and positively-charged soundtrack to MidBoss' cyberpunk adventure game Read Only Memories. Not content with a soundtrack that was merely fitting for its game, 2 Mello crafted these sounds to embody the dual nature of Neo-San Francisco, all its charm and its hidden dangers. But who said that our cyberpunk future has to be dark and dreary? You'll be humming these melodies to 2064 and beyond.

Just letting you know that there's an issue where the new Itch client downloads the Sights and Sounds file instead of the game file if you bought it with the game. Should be solved by removing the OS icons from the file.
Fantastic game, btw.
Dude. The trailer video is SOLID man! Lmfao...it takes me back to he nineties/early 2000's. Anyway, the demo was enjoyable enough to convince me to buy this. Characters are fantastic. I'm loving how the game lets you choose your pronoun. Can't wait to discover the rest of the content. Great game!!
Fantastic ! It´s on my list . Buying it soon.. :))
Really happy I backed this project, it's turned out to be a truly amazing game that creates a genuinely interesting living world you wont want to leave. I'm hoping for an Oculus style version in the future that I can actually climb inside of and see out my days in Neo-SF. Great game!
