ShovelForge (イクラマン, Ikuraman) is a video game featured within the world of AI: THE SOMNIUM FILES.
ShovelForge is a 3-D sandbox game, where players can build and create various objects within a blocky environment. It is one of A-set's favorite games to play, and by 2019, is her go-to game to stream online.
- ShovelForge is an in-game parody of the sandbox game Minecraft, down to the heavy uses of blocky environments, pickaxes to mine/dig, and crafting tables to combined dropped materials.
- In English, the name ShovelForge comes from changing "Min[ing]" to "Shovel[ing]" and changing "Craft[ing]" to "Forg[ing]." In Japanese, the name comes from taking the Japanese title of Minecraft (マインクラフト, Mainkurafuto), removing the last two katakana (フト, futo), and then reshuffling the rest.
- While the name Minecraft has been referenced by many fans on Twitter when @-ing at A-set and Mato, neither one of them has actually mentioned Minecraft themselves by name on To-Witter. It's unknown if this means that, in the universe of AI, ShovelForge and Minecraft are one and the same.
- Despite its name, ShovelForge does not actually include any shovels as part of their lineup of tools.
