NONSENSE! After an unfortunate incident, Socrates Jones must debate a host of philosophers in order to win back his life. More than slightly inspired by the Ace Attorney series.
Authors note: This is for real this time, by the actual creators! The person who was pretending to be us didn't even upload the most recent version. That's just lazy game theft, that is.
interesting little project, surprised by the level of commitment you have show, getting an actual professor to help out is no small thing. I just wish the comments weren't so aggravating.... no damn substance all the same inane drivel about how this game is the third coming of Jesus.
Anyway thank you for making me feel like a dumbfuck and keep on keeping on.
how did you come up with the dialogues?
We had a philosophy professor working with us, and we went back and forth until we came up with something that worked for each debate. And then, I added a liberal dose of stupid jokes. =)
like i was playing phoniex wright
This... this had to be the best game I have ever played.
There were a few problems, like being sorta linear. Sometimes I believed I have found the answer but there was no way to express it in the game. Though this isn't a bad thing since this wasn't the game's plan to begin with. Then there was the fact that you couldn't relate with the character since he already had a set backstory and personallity... though this isn't a problem either since this isn't what this game is supposed to give you.
What it did give me was a reason to think and lots of knoweldge. I just loved it and want to thank anyone who participated in making it and I would love to see some sort of sequel.
P.S: Could you guys release a track album or something like that? I really loved the tracks in this game, especially in the last debate phases
Sure, let's get down to the soundtrack sharing!

First and foremost I'll say that I did enjoy this game. The music was smooth, the background art and character art was simple yet effective. The idea is absolutely brilliant. However, a few things that bothered me while I played the game... Ari, as a character, is rather plain, boring, and even annoying at times. I would much rather not have to deal with her fan-girling over Mill, her interjections (during the part with Mill), while I was trying to think and come up with a conclusion, were obnoxious and unneeded. Ironically (being the character that introduces Jones to philosophy) she didn't think very openly when Jones pointed out flaws in her idols ideas, even Mill himself was more rational about it than she was. I could say more, but I'd just be ranting. Jones himself comes across as unintelligent at times when talking to Kant, even the Arbiter seems to become this way around Kant, yet later on the Arbiter proves to be a greater problem than Kant. The characterization of your own characters I found to be a bit weak, but the way each philosopher was presented was pretty entertaining. Another thing is that sometimes the logical fallacy's are obvious in my mind, but I have trouble finding a way to them through the games options. Even on the other hand, I sometimes couldn't even think of an answer and I would click on it by accident while searching through my options. It would be my conclusion that the game isn't limited in options, it just has different options than what people would/could think.
Aside from all that, this game really taught me about philosophy and a bit of history, it does make me think and question statements more often than I already do.
P.S. I liked the nods towards Ace Attorney game, I've never even played those and I still caught on.
Ari was annoying, Jones was sometimes dumb
Game has a good set of choices, just not the ones I thought of
I enjoyed it overall
