AI: The Somnium Files - Release Trailer| PS4.
AI: The Somnium Files is a mystery adventure game, and is split into two types of sections: investigation parts and somnium parts; it additionally contains several optional side quests. The story progresses through branching paths leading to multiple different endings, based on choices the player makes; the player only gets a full view of the story by playing through each route. Rather than starting over from the beginning several times to see different paths, the player can skip directly to the branching points. During the investigation parts, the player character, as detective Kaname Date, uses his artificial intelligence unit Aiba's functions, such as X-ray vision and zooming, to further the investigation in the real world. During the somnium parts, Date uses a machine called the Psync Device to enter the memories of suspects or key witnesses who do not want to share information with him, in the form of dreamscapes called "somnium", to find clues and extract the information by solving puzzles. The puzzles involve examining objects and choosing an action to perform with it, and solving mental locks - obstacles standing in the way of clues - allowing the player to sink deeper into the character's subconscious. There is a six-minute time limit before the dreamscape collapses, and as actions take time to perform, the player must be careful in deciding what to do. Within the somnium parts, Aiba takes on the form of a humanoid and acts as the player avatar.
AI: The Somnium Files was scheduled to be released on September 17, 2019, on September 19, 2019 and on September 20, 2019 by Spike Chunsoft.
This video game is available for the following platforms: Microsoft Windows, Nintendo Switch and PlayStation 4.
