Rom: Dire Wraiths isn’t the only ROM comic coming out from IDW. This December, a new comic series based on a videogame will be released by the company: Read Only Memories. Read Only Memories takes place in the retro cyberpunk world of Midboss‘ 2064: Read Only Memories.
The game – available on current consoles, PC, and mobile – is in the point-and-click adventure genre and is about:
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.
The Read Only Memories comic series takes place after 2064: Read Only Memories and before MidBoss’ next game Read Only Memories: Neurodiver. The story will tell the tale of:
Lexi Rivers, formerly a detective and now a private investigator. When a robot arrives at her door seeking a lost lover, she is drawn into a journey to the seemingly peaceful beaches of Santa Cruz.
Read Only Memories will be written by Sina Grace with art by Stefano Simeone. You can read it monthly starting December.
