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!


i fail to understand the logic in the first and second puzzles... for the first puzzle there is no evidence to prove that the switch is even a switch, or that it will turn the lights on if there even is lights. in the second puzzle the flaw is that just because people believe a perfect god exists doesn't mean they are correct using an example from atheism such as the invisible pink unicorn. other than that the puzzles were creative but not that challenging except for the last one that has no key for the double arrow. overall a decent game with good music and artwork, i really wish there was more logic puzzles like this and that is your redeeming quality. 3/5 id like to see more with this theme.

not that original

Awesome game! Make more of these. The 10th level was the best!

An excellent concept. but that loud-ass noise that plays everytime you click the button to answer kinda fucked it up for me.

Good game, but there's something I don't understand. ---SPOILER BELOW---

If you're alive, how are you breaking the laws of human biology?

tjubert responds:

You're not. EITHER the laws of biology have been broken OR you're breithing oxygen.
