2064: Read Only Memories
Have you ever wondered what it’d be like to have a robot companion? Well, 2064: Read Only Memories lets you see exactly how that’d pan out through a Relationship and Organizational Manager (a fancy name for a robot) named Turing.
Assuming the role of a struggling journalist in Neo-San Francisco in 2064, players must work with their robot buddy to solve environmental puzzles and talk with NPCs to help you in your in search for your missing friend. However, as you’d expect, things get creepier the further you investigate.
If you’re looking for an all-out action game, you’re better off going elsewhere. 2064 is a point-and-click adventure game that’s driven forward by its intriguing story of the dark side of technology. This, combined with the relationship between yourself and Turing, the environmental storytelling, and the diverse cast of characters, makes for a world you’ll find hard to pull yourself away from.
It’s certainly not everyone’s cup of tea, but for those who can enjoy a good point-and-click adventure title, 2064: Read Only Memories is one of the best indie titles of January that you can buy.
