Do you think an unexamined life isn’t worth living? If so, then Sophie’s World (1997), an edutainment title based on the book of the same name might have some appeal to you as it deals with philosophy. Learn of Socrates, Plato and Aristotle, or more recent philosophers like Locke, Hume, or Nietzsche.

Gameplay is rather limited and much of the content is little different than reading a text book, so you really have to be interested in the educational topic to enjoy it though.

Basically only for fans of the book, then?

Very interesting graphics. Some items have outlines which are usually found in comic style sketches (though white outlines are unusual. Black is the most preferred colour for that job), while others come straight from photos…

I remember loving the book, but don’t think i have played the game.

     

An adventure game is nothing more than a good story set with engaging puzzles that fit seamlessly in with the story and the characters, and looks and sounds beautiful.

I’ve never read the book so I can’t say how it compares. I like philosophy though and thought it was okay.
