Memory of a Broken Dimension glitching into 2017

Memory of a Broken Dimension [official site] is slated to finally launch in 2017. We've been cooing over its corrupted digital world since ooh 2012 and I've almost been happy with Memories existing in that idea space, something pleasant-sounding always just over the horizon.

Hack This: Memory Of A Broken Dimension
