Argue the toss in a twisted tale of logic...

In ir/rational you complete, create and discredit arguments by selecting propositions and filling in the blanks. It's a puzzle game based on propositional logic, and a graphic adventure all in one - only here you don't so much need to escape the room as prove why you'd even want to.

- Unique, language-based argument system: formulate logical proofs to progress through the game

- Dark philosophical comedy by Tom Jubert, writer of Penumbra, Driver: San Francisco and FTL.

- 10 screens and roughly half an hour of intelligent, challenging and inventive gameplay

- Musical score by award-winning composer Mikko Tarmia

- Click to progress story
- Complete the arguments by selecting options from the drop-down menus

NB Some systems don't display all the dropdown options at once, and you have to use the arrow keys to scroll.

If you can't see the right answer, chances are you can resolve the problem with the arrow keys. Hope it's not dampened your enthusiasm!


holing: If a combo-box does not display a scrollbar most people simply do not know there are more options available, as they use the scrollbar or mousewheel to navigate combo-boxes. Whilst the game might not be 'broken' it's not intuitive, many people will get stuck there and should be fixed.
It has nothing to do with stupidity.

That said, I've enjoyed the game so far.

Sucks because at the start it just freezes and nothing happens. Absolutely nothing...

To everyone said the a Australia level is broken: IT'S NOT

never rate low on any game because of your stupidity

People find this review helpful!

Needed options are missing from the multiple choice pull down menus.
If these options are missing, then I can't beat the game.
If I can't beat the game, the game is broken.
If the game is broken...
Fuck you.
