Ir/rational Redux - with all new visuals and sound - is now live over at Newgrounds!
"I think, therefore I am."
"As certainties go, knowing that you’re some kind of thinking thing… some kind of living, thinking thing… isn’t exactly helpful. Knowing it’s bloody dark doesn’t get you much further."
ir/rational is the dark philosophical tale of one man's struggle to come to terms with his powers of deduction. It's also a short, text-based logic puzzle. It's probably some other things as well.
Therefore you will play it.
It tests your logic and deductive reasoning.
Therefore you may be too lazy to play it.
But you should. Also: it’s well-written, funny... You'll like it.
