A red circle appears over the Y or N when your mouse pointer is on top of them. If you're playing with the keyboard or a controller, just move the cursor away to get rid of that.

Made with Unity :)

Sorry to hear that, Fanrik. Please follow the steps in this thread to submit your log file and I'll see what I can do.

That's odd! I tried recording with OBS (v0.659b on Windows 8.1) myself and it worked fine in both monitor and window mode, so there must be something different about your setup. What operating system are you using? And you're using the most recent version of Sort the Court, correct? (should say 2.2.0 in the upper right on the title screen)

Since the music is an original work created for the game, it is indeed copyrighted, as is all creative work, but you're totally free to use it in a video about Sort the Court! I've made a post here granting explicit permission for anyone who wishes to do so. We love that people are making videos about the game and want that to continue! :)

The contents of Sort the Court may be published through video broadcasting services for any commercial or non-commercial purposes. Monetization of videos created containing assets from Sort the Court is legally & explicitly allowed by the developers.


  • Can I make a YouTube video of Sort the Court? Yes.
  • Can I use the music from Sort the Court in a video about Sort the Court? Yes.

If you have any questions not covered in this thread, please create a new thread about your concern.

Exactly one year ago today, Sort the Court was first released. It was originally built in 72 hours for the Ludum Dare game jam, but over the last year we've released numerous updates, expanding it into a fully-fledged game.

Sort the Court has come such a long way, and we're so glad to have been able to share it with so many awesome people. Thank you for playing, and for your comments, videos, and kind messages - it means a lot to us that our cute little jam game has managed to grow and reach so far.

For a little anniversary treat, we've released another update today! You can find the patch notes here.

From myself, Amy, and Bogdan, thank you so much for your support over this past year!

Version 2.2.0

  • You can now play as a Queen! When starting a new game, you can choose to play as a King or Queen. This doesn't change anything other than your appearance, and what words characters will use when referring to you.
  • Added some sound effects to the menus.
  • Fixed highlight graphics of some UI elements.
  • The Wizard won't offer to help with certain quests if he was banished.
  • Fixed other small bugs and typos.

Woops! I fixed a typo in the logic, it should be working now.

Another good find, I've now fixed that one as well, it'll be out in the next update :)

Version 2.1.0
  • Controller support! You can now use XBOX and PS4 controllers to play the game.
  • Better keyboard and mouse support on menus.
  • The arrow keys can now be used as input (Left = Yes, Down = Continue, Right = No).
  • Fixed an issue where some players would not be able to start the game.
  • Fixed an issue where save files could become corrupted.
  • Reworded some dialog to make it clearer.
  • Fixed several typos.
  • Balance changes.
  • Moved the Game Jolt login button to the "Extras" menu.

Unfortunately there isn't. Sorry about that!

When you play the downloaded version your save file (SortTheCourt_save.dat, next to the game's executable) can be copied, backed up, and moved around as much as you like - but the browser version uses a different system for saving.

Posted in Keybindings

I've had a couple of requests about this, so I'll be adding support for the arrow keys in the next update (Left = Yes, Down = Continue, Right = No)

Replied to tjrhtpr in Bugs

Yep! That's been fixed and will be included in the next update, thanks for the report.

Hello - please follow the instructions in this post to send me your log file, that will help me understand what's going on.

Created a new topic How to submit your log file

In some cases, such as if the game is crashing or not working properly, it is helpful for me to see your log file. To send me your log file, you first need to locate it. It will be in a different location depending on your OS:

Windows: The log file is in the "SortTheCourt_Data" folder next to the game's exe (Wherever you unzipped the game to). You will find a file called "output_log.txt" in that folder.

Mac: The log file is found at "~/Library/Logs/Unity/Player.log"

Linux: The log file is found at "~/.config/unity3d/graebor/SortTheCourt/Player.log"

Your log file is re-built every time you run the game, so in order to submit your log file follow these steps:

  1. Run Sort the Court and play to the point where the bug happens.
  2. Once you witness the bug, close Sort the Court.
  3. Write an email to support@graemeborland.com briefly describing the bug you witnessed, and attach your log file. Please put "[Sort the Court log file]" somewhere in your email's subject line so I can find it more easily.
  4. Depending on the contents of your log I may ask for additional information to help narrow down what caused the issue.

Could you run the game so that this happens again, then close the game and navigate to the SortTheCourt_Data folder next to the game's unzipped exe file, then grab the file called output_log.txt and email it to support@graemeborland.com. That will help me figure out what's going wrong.

Also, as long as you hang on to your save file (SortTheCourt_save.dat, found next to the game's exe) then you will be able to bring it over into future versions, so don't worry about that.

Replied to MrOger in Bugs

I agree - that will be fixed in the next update.

Replied to pollol0c0 in Bugs

Keep in mind the GameJolt login has nothing to do with your saved game - the only thing logging in does is allow you to submit your scores to the leaderboards and earn trophies. Your saved progress is stored locally on your computer, even if you are not logged in. Troubles logging in may be GameJolt API issues, but you should still be able to save even if not logged in. Your progress is local, so if you play in the browser, the Continue button will only appear when you are playing in the browser on that same computer.

Replied to xx.emma.xx in Language Bug

Sort the Court is only available in one language, so it can't be that. What operating system are you using? Are you using the downloaded version or playing in your browser? If possible it would also help if you could post a screenshot of what you're seeing in this thread.

Replied to york117 in Bugs

Good find, I didn't intend for that to happen. Will be fixed in the next update :)

Replied to AfterMidday in Bugs

Sorry to hear that! The game should work in Chrome but I've never tested it on a Chromebook so there might be some differences there. I'll see if I can do anything about that in a future update :(

Replied to DanieI in Bugs

If possible, please run the game and try to start a new game again, then when this bug happens close the game and email the file /Users/[YourUserName]/Library/Logs/Unity/Player.log to support@graemeborland.com. Having your log file will help me be able to identify the problem.

It would be helpful if you could email that file to support@graemeborland.com so I can see what's going on.

On a gamepad the confirm button ("A" on XBOX360), as well as both triggers and both bumpers should all work as fire buttons. It's also possible you might need to use the downloaded version of the game to get it to recognize your controller, I know I've had some trouble with that in the past.

Unfortunately since I don't have a Mac myself, it's very hard for me to track down Mac-specific issues like this.. Does the game work properly for you when played in the browser?

Replied to zeidge92 in Bugs

If you play on the Gamejolt page while logged in via the Gamejolt site, it should automatically log you into the game (you shouldn't need to use the login button in the game at all). Does doing it that way work? I'm not sure what else I can do to troubleshoot login problems, since almost all of that is handled by Gamejolt's own API :\

Possibly! It's not ideal, but there's a workaround you can use for now: If you use the download version of the game you can actually just make a copy of the game in a duplicated folder - when you run the game it will look for a SortTheCourt_save.dat file in the folder it was run from (the same folder as the .exe), so multiple copies of the game in different folders can have their own saves. You can even get creative with backing up/renaming/exchanging the SortTheCourt_save.dat file if you're comfortable doing that.

The love potion event is still in the game, but that's not how you get the Workplace Relationship trophy ;)

Hint: Getting that trophy relies on you doing a certain ending and then continuing to play for a while.

Thanks! I'll have that typo fixed in the next update.

Hello! I'm not sure what you mean by "the incorrect thing appears", but make sure you are entering your gamejolt token, not your password. Gamejolt uses a token system for security when manually logging in to games, on the gamejolt site click your portrait in the top right and select "Game Token" and enter that code instead.

Hi there! I responded to this report in another thread so I'll link to it here for your convenience: https://itch.io/post/55431

If you've downloaded the standalone Mac version, you just need to double-click the .zip file and it will unzip the app file, which you can then double click to play. Were you using the downloaded version or the browser version when you got stuck with no characters?
