AI: The Somnium Files is Kotaro Uchikoshi's next major work after the Zero Escape trilogy. Like its predecessors, it features a branching-path mystery, game-changing plot twists, and more puns than entirely necessary.

Hmmm...
To do:
  • Add unused audio & 2D graphics. Continue looking for unused models/animations/etc.
  • There are many debug screenshots located in the "StandaloneWindows64\flowchart_image" archive. Dump these and notate how they differ from the final build.

Unused Graphics

Album Images

Thumbnail size versions of every dream album image are in the game's files. However, two of these thumbnails do not match the full size images and do not appear in the game.

Cooking Magazine

Hitomi's cooking magazine has more to it than what is shown in-game (specifically, the inside with blank text and the full back). The full texture is shown above.

A good ramen recipe makes Date's reaction time speed up just enough to dodge bullet fire, I guess.

Unused iPhone Screen

Hmmm...
To do:
Document these apps if you can recognize the icons!

The textures for the option screen include - of all things - a screenshot of an iPhone. The screen is cropped and blown up below. The apps shown are, in order: Facetime, Calculator, Podcasts, Notes, Watch, a Folder, iCloud Drive Facebook, Snapchat, Twitter, Instagram, 7 Minute Workout Challenge, Uber, LinkedIn, Netflix, Pinterest, eBay, KAYAK, VSCO, Pokemon GO, Chameleon Run, Lara Croft GO, and Airbnb.

Just the phone, rotated and blown up.

Unused Calendar

Hmmm...
To do:
Translate the text. Make an English mock-up if possible.

This calendar for November is included with the 'ui_options' archive that contains the game options. It is unknown what this would have been used for.

Did Shoko really die, or did she just have a case of the Mondays? Eh? Ehhhh?

Unused Models

Kagami's Mask

Hmmm...
To do:
Someone smarter than me please find a way to remove his mask so we can have a transparent render. It would also be worthwhile to see if he has phonemes in his voice lines (the phonemes are pre-calculated with Rogo Digital's LipSync software).

Kagami is never seen without his mask in the game and his mouth does not animate visibly ingame, as his mask is covering it. However, his model does have a mouth, as well as nostrils.

Hitomi in a Hospital Gown

Hitomi is never seen in a hospital gown in the final game. Ota and Mizuki are seen in this same gown (when they are in the hospital, appropriately). Hitomi IS seen in Central Hospital during one of Date's flashbacks, but her body is completely under the bedsheets and only her head is visible.

Taking the camera underneath the covers shows that she is using this model and also has a very faint animation where she shakes her arm. This file is named "chara_md_c07_01" (Hitomi is character number 7).

Poor Hitomi never catches a break.

Unseen Back on Hitomi [Annihilation route]

Hitomi is seen with bombs strapped to her torso in the Annihilation route. However, she is never seen from the rear, as she is shown on a 'computer screen' in the game itself. Viewing the model from this angle shows that Hitomi's arms and hands are restrained.

Hitomi never catches a break!

Ritsuko's Skeleton

The Lemniscate receptionist, Ritsuko, uses a similar model to that of Hitomi and thus shares some characteristics from the former's model - namely, that she also has Hitomi's bones. Literally. These skeleton bones are shown when Hitomi is x-rayed, and it is clearly Hitomi's skeleton in particular because of the metal plate over its right shoulder.

However, the game does not allow you to x-ray Ritsuko with Aiba, thus rendering this model unused. It is unknown if the intention was that Date would want to x-ray Ritsuko and this was a placeholder, or if this was simply a leftover. In either case, Date's reasoning for wanting to x-ray Ritsuko should be rather obvious.

Unused Animations

DANCE Feature

The DANCE feature appears on the main menu after the player beats the game. The animation used for this, cm#E6-wrap79_M10_00#c05_00_mo_Iris_dance, is actually a bit longer than the player sees.

This animation was motion captured, as listed in the credits. The full start of the dance, where the actor holds their start position, can be seen in the video below. In-game, the animation starts halfway through the character raising their arm.
