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

- 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!


Loved the game, the way it makes you think is just incredible, when combined with humour and good wit it makes the game stand out as one to be reckoned with. I can find no fault with it at all, the graphics, music and plot are all above excellence. The symbolic argument (on the door) at the end really ground the gears in my head. It all fits together perfectly! Very well done.

My only argument is it ended, I could play for hours.

I do not see why people like this game so much at all. It was not fun for me at all.

Aye... I really got stuck on the Michael Atkinson puzzle. I really love this game. It really deserves 5+ stars than the 5 I already gave it. I would love to see a sequel to this.

Love the Game, the story was engaging and the idea a blast... It was a little bit to short, I hope for a longer sequel.

A thousand stars by me, if I could...
