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

Instructions:
- 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!

This game is very interesting and pretty dang tough. Very good game!



The game is... just nothing but mind blowing. It makes you think in odd and complexing ways in order to figure out why the something has done or said so. In order to solve a problem, you must identify why the statement above is true and then fit and see how it is true. Above all, great game to make and truly mind boggling!



amazing its hard to find philisophical puzzles in games and wspecially ones that make you think. HOWEVER it is short. also the machine is the prototype of GlaDos

A wonderful game! The ending, as others have said, was a bit of a let-down. 4 Stars.
