In Reverse 1999, Artificial Somnambulism comprises two segments: Surface and Limbo, both featuring multiple dreams for you to explore and collect stars within.


In the Surface, you must complete one dream to unlock the next. Once a challenge is cleared, you can claim rewards in the Dream Corridor. The progress in the Dream Corridor for the Surface will not be reset.


Limbo represents the more challenging iteration of the Surface and is accessible after successfully clearing all ten Surface stages. The number of stars collected is irrelevant; the primary requirement for unlocking Limbo is completing ORD10.

The Limbo dream stages are scheduled for regular resets at 5:00 a.m. (UTC-5) on the 1st and 16th day of each month. Completion of each stage in the Limbo Experiment will yield rewards.

These rewards will also reset in tandem with the Limbo’s reset.

Offline System

Starting from the 6th floor in the Surface and onwards, the Offline System is in effect. Within this system, certain characters will go offline after you win a battle, rendering them unable to participate in the next match in Reverse 1999.

The deeper you delve into the Dreams, the greater the number of characters that go offline.

It’s important to note that the Offline System within each Dream operates independently, meaning that the system in one Dream does not affect your characters in another.

Reset System

Within Artificial Somnambulism in Reverse 1999, you can reset any previously cleared fragment and the subsequent Dreams.

It’s worth noting that even after a Dream is reset, offline characters will remain offline, and the total number of stars you’ve collected will remain unchanged. Resetting a Dream does not impact the unlocked rewards.

Why should you complete Limbo?

Completing Limbo in Reverse 1999 offers a gratifying reward in the form of premium gacha currency, Clear Drops. By clearing Limbo entirely each week, you can earn up to 600 Clear Drops.

This provides free-to-play (f2p) players with an effective opportunity to accumulate gacha currency for rolling on their favorite character banners.

However, it’s important to note that Limbo is widely regarded as challenging by most players and demands well-prepared, powerful characters to clear its stages successfully. The difficulty escalates as you delve deeper into the Dreams.


For free-to-play (f2p) players, accumulating Clear Drops through the standard completion of in-game chapters can be a slow process. However, with Artificial Somnambulism, you can collect Clear Drops weekly by clearing its stages.

Employing a well-devised strategy, leveling up your characters, and selecting the appropriate Psychube is life-changing. It will significantly aid in overcoming the challenges posed by the enemies.
