Released on Switch, PC and PS4 AI: The Somnium Files is a detective adventure game with visual novel elements. In this production we try to solve the puzzle of murders committed in technologically advanced, but more or less modern Tokyo. Spike Chunsoft Kotaru Uchikoshi studio is responsible for its creation.


In the near future in Tokyo corpses with a peeled eye are found. Players play the role of a detective named Kaname Date, who tries to track down the serial murderer behind the crime.


AI gameplay: The Somnium Files is about keeping a close eye on dialogues, observing locations and analyzing hidden clues. In the game there is a plethora of colorful characters, who very often hide the truth from us for various reasons. Instead of the left eye, our protagonist has an implant with a special processor, endowed with artificial intelligence. Thanks to him, the detective has the ability to "enter" the memories of the interrogated and draw information straight from their heads.

Game modes

AI: The Somnium Files has a single player mode only.

Technical issues

AI: The Somnium Files has a three-dimensional graphic design that is styled to resemble two-dimensional drawings. The designs of the characters and locations were prepared in the manga style, characteristic for many Asian productions. Yusuke Kozaki (Fire Emblem Awakening, No More Heroes) is responsible for their execution.
