Press release:
SAN FRANCISCO – July 18, 2019 – MidBoss has partnered with IDW Publishing to expand the “Read Only Memories” universe with an all-new comic book series, set to begin releasing in monthly installments starting December 2019.

A Limited Run physical Nintendo Switch release of 2064: Read Only Memories will also release in Q4 2019.

IDW, one of the largest comic book publishers in the U.S., has brought to print popular adaptations of licensed properties including Sonic the Hedgehog, Transformers, G.I. Joe, My Little Pony, and Star Wars as well as popular indie works such as Locke & Key and Usagi Yojimbo. More than 80 IDW titles have been featured in New York Times best seller lists.

Return to the colorful cyberpunk future of Read Only Memories in a brand new story involving sentient AI, love and a web of conspiracy.

Taking place in the years between 2064: Read Only Memories and Read Only Memories: Neurodiver, the next upcoming mystery adventure game in the Read Only Memories universe, IDW’s series features 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.

Each issue of the adventure will feature full-color illustrations by Stefano Simeone, who has also worked with Dark Horse, Boom! Studios and The Walt Disney Company on properties including Star Wars.

The story will be woven by the prolific Sina Grace, a veteran who has written for comic series including Marvel’s Uncanny X-Men and Iceman.

“We’re blessed to work with extremely talented creators for our first foray into media outside of video games,” said Cade Peterson, CEO of MidBoss.

The Read Only Memories universe still has a lot of room to explore diversity and inclusion through the richness of the world and the relatable characters that inhabit it.

Bringing other creatives on board to help explore everything the setting has to offer is the logical next step.”

The Limited Run physical Nintendo Switch collector’s edition of 2064: Read Only Memories will pair with that of VA-11 HALL-A, the booze ‘em up about waifus, technology and post-dystopia life with more than 300,000 copies sold, in magnetic cases that snap together. Each of the 2,000 collector’s editions and 3,000 standard editions of 2064: Read Only Memories will feature cover art exclusive to this printing.
