Artificial is a groundbreaking live, audience-interactive scripted sci-fi series, and the first original scripted series to debut on Twitch. The show follows Sophie, an Artificial Intelligence being on a journey to become human-- and she needs your help to do it!

The first season featured weekly live episodes with an ongoing story that takes input from the audience to shape the future of the story. And now, Artificial returns with a fresh new interactive experience!


This year, Artificial will be returning with an exciting and expansive new story, as well as a brand new companion narrative podcast, Artificial Uncovered. This podcast will introduce new characters and investigate the inner workings of Sophie and Matt and their impact on the world of modern artificial intelligence as a whole. Artificial Season 2 (or version 2.0) will also return with new live episodes this spring.

Artificial is all about you, the audience! In Artificial, you're given the opportunity to interact directly with the characters by asking questions via chat, voting on polls that decide important aspects of Sophie’s development, sending her letters, and even chatting with her creator Dr. Lin in a private chat room after the show!

In addition to weekly live streams and podcast episodes, Artificial offers further interaction with social media events, bonus livestreams, and a welcoming discord community.


Join us as we expand the world of Artificial on our Patreon. You’ll be part of an exclusive community of fans who will get special access to extra content, behind the scenes footage, and most importantly, the ability to interact with Sophie, Matt and the other characters like never before. Your participation on Patreon means more content, more interaction with your favorite characters, and of course -- more puns from our lovable AI Sophie. Zing!
