Update - March 31, 2011: The Professor was mentioned in a PC Gamer article! http://www.pcgamer.com/2011/02/26/the-top-five-rpg-maker-games/
September 27, 2011: And again! http://www.pcgamer-magazine.com/pcgamer/201110?pg=88#pg88

------------
You are Professor McLogic, the finest logician the world has ever known. In this game you will travel to many corners of the world and converse with the inhabitants, using your skills of logic to determine who is lying and who can be trusted.

Professor McLogic is a game of logic puzzles. The puzzles are not pre-fabricated but are generated on the spot by the program, so the possible situations are almost endless. There are 10 different scenarios, each with its own set of rules.

Here is an example of one puzzle created by the game:

========================================
In the School of Philosophy, everyone speaks only in conditional sentences. Individuals can hold one of two ranks: Master or Student. Based on the statements below, can you determine which of the individuals are Masters, and which are Students?

Feeney:
1. If I am a student, so is Caughill.
2. If Manel and I are not of equal rank, I am a master.

Caughill:
1. If Feeney is a master, so am I.

Manel:
1. If Feeney is a master, I am a student.
2. If Caughill and I are not of equal rank, I am a master.
========================================

If you figured out that all three characters are Students, then you have what it takes to play PROFESSOR MCLOGIC SAVES THE DAY!!

My best total time: 173:34

If anyone ACTUALLY FINISHES THIS, send me your total time and be added to the hall of fame!

Four years later, bug fixes.

Just what it says! Some people from jayisgames actually played far enough to notice and report some bugs. Hence, a v2.0.

Hi! I just played Prof. Layton and the Curious Village so this games looks very interesting. I might offer to beta test this in the summer but not right now as I got my exams. Keep up the good work!

Ahh, alas this game doesn't have much of a through-story like the Prof. Layton games.
It's good to see you've released the game Gib. Hopefully this time I'll be able to download it without it crashing at 78%.

Hopefully ... has it been crashing at 78%?
It was probably something wrong with my connection. I did manage to download it and from what I've played so far I like it. Perhaps I'll discuss a little about the game in the Play Something Discussion Topic but great job on the game.
I kinda believe some puzzles have more than one possible solution.

And where do I save game??????????
Never mind (both things).
I really like this game... though it's impossible to play it without taking written notes.
I'm loving this game.
But

"Since this is an RPG Maker game, you have to dash around a map and speak to each character individually, try to remember what he or she says, and then mentally associate the character graphic with the character's name, which is a lot of extra and unnecessary mental work in a game about logic. You might wish to write down all the statements, but that is incredibly tedious and as the game designer I can't expect anyone to do it."

I wouldn't expect anyone to have such a good memory as to remember everything in every map! I do write everything down, and it's indeed tedious, but I don't see any other way.

I totally agree. 8C Oh well. HOPEFULLY NOT A FATAL FLAW.

Oops. Italics fail.
I need to play this here soon.
Wooooooo, I and only I just was the 1000th download!!!
Great game overall. However, I feel obligated to point out to you that the LAN party scenario has bugs. I found a puzzle in which every statement about the Alliance was also made about the Horde, which is, of course, impossible to solve. I'll also point out that the example you gave in the readme file has two valid solutions (Character A can side with either faction).

MY GOODNESS. After four years of nothing, suddenly lots of people are reporting this bug after it was posted at jayisgames.com.

I GUESS I'D BETTER FIX IT.

Tomorrow or something.
There's a MIDI file missing from the game. It's "BGM_Negative02.mid" or something. It's not an urgent matter, but I thought you'd like to know.

Whathow! No such midi is used in the game. When did this error occur?

IIRC, it was Windwhip Peak, or whichever the last area is.

EDIT: Nevermind, it looks like the event that points to it isn't actually referenced in the game script. Yes, I snooped around in the game files.
it was the best game I could ever play in my life!
What a marvelous game! Really I love it, my compliments to the creator.
I just wanted to say that It's not that hard to remember the logic consequences without writing them down.... well apart when it gets too complicated.

Great! I am happy you did enjoy. :)
