This... this had to be the best game I have ever played.
There were a few problems, like being sorta linear. Sometimes I believed I have found the answer but there was no way to express it in the game. Though this isn't a bad thing since this wasn't the game's plan to begin with. Then there was the fact that you couldn't relate with the character since he already had a set backstory and personallity... though this isn't a problem either since this isn't what this game is supposed to give you.
What it did give me was a reason to think and lots of knoweldge. I just loved it and want to thank anyone who participated in making it and I would love to see some sort of sequel.
P.S: Could you guys release a track album or something like that? I really loved the tracks in this game, especially in the last debate phases
Sure, let's get down to the soundtrack sharing!

WOW! This game was amazing. I always wanted to play a really good educational game - and u guys made it possible! It really stopped me from going to sleep for some hours. Just wanted to say thank you for the good time. Please keep up the good work!
This game is amazing! And making me think I should play some of the inspiring series (I did enjoy a demo of their latest title, but we're beside the point). I was fairly worried that I wouldn't like the ending given that I have my own set of views on the matter of morality. I feared this game would force me to adopt a philosophy against my own opinion, without the opportunity to argue my own case, merely in order to "win" the game. Which it didn't in the slightest, hence the brilliance. It makes me want to discuss philosophy with calm rational people. Though you probably do have to die to find people with that much time and patience. Thank you for this game!
last year we studied these philosophers (kant and mill, actually) I was just as exited as ari when I confronted them. Great game. If you'd do a sequel, or anything like this, with historical figures, I play it with the same enthusiasm as this one (or even more).
