AI: The Somnium Files
|AI: The Somnium Files|
Also known as: AI: Somnium Files (JP)
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.

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.

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 subtle, but faint animation where she shakes her arm. This file is named "chara_md_c07_01" (Hitomi is character number 7).
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.
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.
