- Unfortunately whatever was attempted here didn't quite land. The hand-drawn visuals were impressive and transported us back in time but the music was crackly and irritating, and the gameplay was slow, far too dialogue-reliant and overall fairly boring. There wasn't much to learn about the other characters other than their names and some resemblance of scholarly/peer relationship with the protagonist but there was very little to do other than read a philosophy visual novel that perhaps got a little lost in translation, with a couple of interactions that majorly held your hand. It would be great to see some more choice-driven responses and puzzles.
- An interesting game turning the concept of delusion on its head. However, by the time these philosophers lived, it was already a well known and established theory that the world was round. Plato certainly believed that it was and taught that in his academy, and since Aristotle was a student of Plato, Aristotle would have learned it from him.
