On October 6th, 2015 the Kickstarter success game Read Only Memories released to generally positive reviews. A couple months ago an updated version was announced, and now developers MidBoss have announced the full voice cast for the game, along with a release date.
Some of these voice actors we already knew would be in the game. Melissa Hutchingson (The Walking Dead‘s Clementine), Sarah Elmaleh (Gone Home‘s Katie), Adam Harrington (The Wolf Among Us‘ Bigby Wolf), Gavin Hammon (The Walking Dead‘s Kenny), Erin Fitzgerald (Persona 4‘s Chie), and Dave Fennoy (The Walking Dead‘s Lee) were all featured in the announcement video.
Yet there’s plenty we didn’t know about as well. Erin Yvette, who played Bonnie in The Walking Dead Season 2 and Snow White in The Wolf Among Us will be lending her talent to the game. Sarah Ann Williams and Erik Scott Kimerer, both of whom have been in tons of animes, will also be making an appearance in the game. We’ll also be seeing Terence McGovern, the voice of Launchpad in Ducktails, in the game as well. 2064: Read Only Memories also seems to be aiming to give some roles to relative newbies. Actors like Lonnie Alex, Nathan Sharp, and Damian McGivney, none of whom have major roles in anything, are all getting a chance with this game.
When I e-mailed MidBoss about the game I was promised that the voice cast would have “interesting guest stars that I think the internet will find interesting” by MidBoss CEO Matt Conn. It seems fans of Giant Bomb will indeed be interested as Dan Ryckert will have a role in the game. Game critic Jim Sterling will also have a role in the game, as does video game developer Zoe Quinn. The game will also feature professional wrestler Austin Creed (also known by his ring name of Xavier Woods.) Finally, actor Todd Bridges will also lend his voice to the game.
While the main news was on the voice actors, some more details were revealed for the PlayStation versions of the game. 2064: Read Only Memories will be coming to both the PlayStation 4 and PlayStation Vita on August 16th. The game will feature both cross-buy and cross-save, so you can buy one version and own both. If you already own the game on PC then you’ll be getting the updated version for free once it launches.
