Game developer asks fans to solve puzzles to help characters escape hidden rooms
Spike Chunsoft launched a website titled “Hidden Bats” on Thursday with a countdown that ended on Sunday. The revamped site now features a video and a riddle for fans to solve.
It is currently unclear whether Spike Chunsoft teases a new work with the website, or uses the website to advertise an upcoming work. The “Bats489” video posted on the website could be a reference to AI: The Somnium files – NirvanA Initiativethe game after Kotaro Uchikoshiit is AI: Somnium files Game. A trailer released in January for the game referenced a “Bats490” video that featured similar footage of bats. The game will be launched for PlayStation 4, Xbox One, nintendo Switch, and PC via Windows 10 and Steam in North America and Europe on June 24.
The “Hidden Bats” website is part of a larger “Sunaiku Foundation” website that Spike Chunsoft opened. The Sunaiku Foundation website says it is an organization to help find missing people. The “Hidden Bats” website explains that two people named Aine Ichirai (first photo below) and Binato Sotobara (second photo) are each locked in a hidden room and given a smartphone for 21 minutes once every two days to post on Twitter .
The characters Aine and Binato both have Twitter accounts, although currently only Aine’s account is active. In it, Aine posts Tweets in English and Japanese, and has post a photo that serves as a clue to help him escape from his room. Fans must use the photo with a “Bats489” video posted on the website to solve the puzzle and tweet the escape code to Aine.
