The latest development of the AI: The Somnium Files – nirvanA Initiative Hidden Bats ARG has concluded, with the decision game between voting for Cairo or Iris’ rescue resulting in the former. I was yearning for Cairo to be saved as the implications for such an outcome will assuredly be quite unprecedented.
The Hidden Bats website has been updated with the following message and accompanying video:
As a result of your choices,
Kairo Goshiki was rescued and Iris Sagan’s existence has been removed from this world.
How do you weigh a sin?
They manifested themselves in the numbers. The results of this experiment are fascinating.
Thank you for your cooperation.
The overseer of this experiment has a message for those who have participated so far.
If you are able to find a new Nirvana Spell in another place, submit it as an Answer.
Only those who will discover the truth about this experiment.
The Sunaiku Foundation has shared the following message:
Earlier today, our Missing Persons Task Force found and rescued Mr. Cairo Goshiki in Toyama Prefecture. He was discovered lying in a ravine and delivered to the police and emergency services. We have been told he is in good health both physically and mentally.
We are proud that our actions led to this favorable outcome. We will continue to find missing persons with renewed vigor and resolve.
With this, the ARG is seemingly done until more hints regarding the next Nirvana Spell code are found. Most likely, the upcoming AI: The Somnium Files – nirvanA Initiative will contain some, seeing as its release date is mentioned in the aforementioned video.
◆ Experiment Balance ◆
This will decide Iris and Cairo’s fate.
In this poll, vote for Iris or Cairo. The most votes is rescued. In a tie, both will be rescued.
Two lives hang in the balance. The choice is yours.
