I know, I know, it’s IF Comp season and this is not an IF Comp game. But as I enjoyed it, I thought you might too.
Star Court is a silly game about being on trial for a crime you probably didn’t commit, and needing to try to defend yourself. There are a lot of randomized elements, so that replaying is likely to go quite differently: in one trial, for instance, I called on a witness who turned out to be away from their phone, whereas the next time I was able to reach them. You also have a resource, “favors”, that you can use to select advantageous options that would otherwise be off limits.
Even when the story goes badly for the protagonist, it’s generally amusing.
Maybe more story-toy than story-game.
