Well received visual novel puzzler AI: The Somnium Files appears to be getting a sequel. Overnight, developer Spike Chunsoft pushed a teaser website that features a lot of, er, eyes. It asks visitors to solve a number of obscure puzzles before inputting a password.
Given that eyes — synthetic or otherwise — are a key part of AI: The Somnium Files, it was immediately assumed that this teaser site has something to do with a sequel. And as it turns out, those assumptions are highly likely to be correct.
Examination of the website's source code shows a reference to "AI Nirvana", which is probably the name of a sequel. We would imagine that an official announcement is coming soon.

I remember this game releasing around the same time as another game I was excited to play called Crystar, and I never got around to playing AI the Somnium Files, really need to make time to play it someday soon.
I've never played this game but I've seen it a few times on the store and considered it. This is one that I'll undoubtedly see in a sale one day, buy it, and then just not play it for like another three years.
Finished this game last week and it is one of the best visual novel games I have played. Buzzed for a sequel.
Yeah I loved this game.
i'm not really a visual novel or adventure game type of guy, but i'm maybe 5 or 6 hours into somnium files and it's really, really excellent. highly recommend it to anyone that was interested but thought "maybe not my cup of tea." you'll be pleasantly surprised!
Will wait for this to hit plus
One of the best VNs I've played and very excited that it's getting a sequel. Fun and easy platinum as well.
The original game was great. It definitely wasn't as shocking as Zero Escape and I much preferred the escape room puzzles of those games to the weird... time management puzzles of AI: Somnium files, but AI: Somnium Files had a solid, engaging storyline. Even if it was very predictable.
I'm hoping the second game will be a bit more tonally consistent. The random perverted stuff was just annoying in the first game.
I loved this game. The English dub was great, especially the song.
