Should you buy it? Well if you like the idea of challenging your ethics with hypothetical scenarios then absolutely. If you are or were a philosophy student you may well get a sense of nostalgia and for me that is arguably enough of a reason to grab it. It's a decent price for what it is, if you aren't sure, maybe wait for a sale… but really for a chance to play something a bit more intellectual for a change I think it's a great buy!

Trolley Problem, Inc. presents ethical questions in a direct, accessible manner, covering multiple fields of discussion. At times, that depth can make it feel more of a teaching tool than a game.

Trolley Problem, Inc. is not a game in the usual meaning of that word. It is more of an interactive philosophical essay, but an interesting one.

Trolley Problem, Inc will continuously confront your morality with a series of ethically probing questions and uncomfortable answers. The dark narrated humour compliments the experience with satirical anecdotes. This might be an insightful endeavour if you're curious about ethics, but its arbitrary minimalist structure and brief length amount to a forgettable experience.

Trolley Problem, Inc. could be the first entry in a series of philosophy-focused gaming experiences. It does a good job of adding a layer of solid presentation to thought experiments, some centered on classic ethics, and some linked to modern life issues. The idea of comparing choices with the developer and other players is also a solid one. I also appreciate the in-depth reading list provided and how references are offered for each dilemma.

It may be short, but Trolley Problem, Inc is something you’re going to keep thinking about for days after you’ve played. Yes, you’ll feel horrible about some of the choices you’ve made – but being able to see what percentage of other players agreed with you might help you feel better. Or worse, depending which way it goes. Ultimately, this is a very clever little game – if we can even call it a ‘game’ – unlike anything else you’ve played so far. If you’re up for some mental stimulation and a challenge for your morals, don’t sleep on it.

I am not sure if fun is the right word but Trolley Problem, Inc. is an engaging and interesting game and unlike any, I’ve played before really.

Trolley Problem, Inc. is a hard sell. At face value, it’s a game that wants to make you feel dirty and disgusted. It’s really not fun to play it by yourself. However, you can get a sizeable amount of entertainment out of it by either playing its co-op mode or just discussing your answers with your friends. I don’t think I will want to replay it to find out different outcomes to my decisions, nor would I recommend it to the faint of heart, but this was an interesting social experiment to partake on.

Trolley Problem, Inc is a decent exploration of morality and philosophy, culminating in a provocative experience that will likely linger beyond its rather short playtime. It’s cleverly presented, even if it can verge on the side of overly simple. Unfortunately, the game doesn’t maintain the same level of intrigue generated by its opening questions, failing to include real-world politics in a satisfying way. It stumbles one too many times, with moments of brilliance being met in equal measure by disappointing shortcomings.
