Today, it was announced that 2064: Read Only Memories, the cyberpunk point-and-click narrative adventure with more than 1 million downloads by MidBoss, will be the Epic Games Store free game of the day on Tuesday, Sept. 28.
This special offer celebrates the trade paperback release of Read Only Memories, the IDW Publishing comic series that bridges the gap between 2064 and its upcoming sequel Read Only Memories: NEURODIVER. A free demo of NEURODIVER, titled Pilot Memory, is available now on Steam and Epic Games Store.

The Read Only Memories trade paperback compiles all four issues of the series written by Sina Grace (The Walking Dead, Marvel’s Uncanny X-Men) with art by Stefano Simeone (Star Wars Adventures, Shoplifters Will Be Liquidated). The trade paperback includes a digital code for 2064: Read Only Memories – Sights and Sounds of Neo-SF, a package containing 2064, its official art book, and soundtrack.
Follow the story of Lexi Rivers, formerly a Neo-San Francisco detective and now a private investigator in Santa Cruz. Rivers must solve a case, unlike anything she’s encountered before, when a robot arrives at her door, seeking its lost human lover.
