AI: The Somnium Files – nirvanA Initiative Announced

The Somnium Files are a collection of fictional titles from the nirvanA initiative, a fledging AI startup. The titles, written by a team of first time authors, explore how the technology will affect society and our interactions with each other. All of the titles are available to read online on, in case you happen to stumble across this blog.

Last week a group of prominent game developers and AI researchers began a new initiative to combat the many issues facing the emergence of artificial intelligence. The group will soon launch the nirvanA Initiative, which will include a task force to address the humanization and ethical ramifications of artificial intelligence.

Detective Adventure AI by Spike Chunsoft: The Somnium Files – nirvanA Initiative is coming to PC and consoles next spring.

The events of the game begin six years earlier, when mysterious circumstances lead to the discovery of the right half of a dead body. However, the left half had been missing for six years when it was later discovered, with no signs of decay. Newly appointed special agent Mizuki and his AI partner Aiba are involved and tasked with solving the Semitel serial murders.

Prior to today’s presentation, there were nine different puzzles that players had to solve to get the password for the NIRVANA INITIATIVE. It was a sinister skull with a countdown clock in its eye sockets, cut in half at the zero point to reveal the trailer.

There’s only one way to do this:

The game will be released on PlayStation 4, Xbox One, Nintendo Switch, and PC via Steam and Windows 10. Note that the physical version of the game is published in Europe by Numskull Games.

The collector’s edition of the game includes the title of the game, the exclusive Good Smile Company POP UP PARADE ~170mm PVC AI-Ball Aiba figure, SECRET OF THE WORLD: DEFINITIVE ART BOOK and the official soundtrack to HARMOniOUS DISCORD.
