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!


Great game. Please make another one, but longer and without the drop down menu bug/issue.

This was an interesting game, but it is buggy or something, because the correct answers are not available in questions 7 or 10 and I wasn't able to finish the game as a result. I checked against some discussions and looked up spoilers to verify that I wasn't simply wrong - the drop-down menus simply don't contain the answer you need to get the question right. There was mention in the discussions that others were having the same problem. It's ironic that such a simple game about logical thinking has a game-stopping bug in it.

i dont quite understand the puzzle in level 7...

in your walkthrough... you stated the answer to number 2 is:
"IF video games should be treated similarly to films THEN Australia is wrong to ban 18+ video games"
i filled up all the answers but cant seem to find one that has the answer "Australia is wrong to ban 18+ video games"

OMG! VERY good game. I did end up beating it... holy crap.... I'm just a kid. I think I need a nap now...

Great game. Tough to solve on first try, but not impossible!
