AI: The Somnium Files – nirvanA Initiative Hidden Bats ARG Results in Aine’s Survival and Binato’s Loss of Existence; Next Experiment in 3 Days

The Hidden Bats ARG of AI: The Somnium Files – nirvanA Initiative has concluded, resulting in the survival of Aine Ichirai and Binato Sotobara vanishing from existence.

The following quote regarding the rescue of Aine was provided via the Sunaiku Foundation website:

Earlier today, our Missing Persons Task Force found and rescued Ms. Aine Ichirai in a mountainous area of Chiba Prefecture. She was delivered to the police and emergency services after her rescue. We have been told she is in good health both physically and mentally, and her family has been contacted.

We are proud that our actions led to this favorable outcome. We will continue to find missing persons with renewed vigor and resolve.

However, the Hidden Bats section part of the Sunaiku Foundation website provides the additional statement:

As a result of your choices,
Aine Ichirai has been rescued and Binato Sotobara’s existence has been removed from this world.

The sinful thief will return to her normal life and the greedy obsessive will disappear forever.

A very interesting conclusion indeed.
Thank you for your participation.

The next experiment will begin at [2022/05/19 19:00 PDT] .
Thank you again for your cooperation.

In 3 days, we’ll have another experiment to look forward to.
