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.

This is really amazing and really makes you question your own views on morality! Each argument seemed a bit long-winded and I kind of lost focus a few times but it could just have been me. I'm very proud of the fact that I managed to occasionally give the right rebuttal the first time giving a counterargument. The character art was really nice and the bg gave a calming effect. The music actually didn't annoy me with it's repetitiveness so that's a big plus! Reading the different views really piqued my interest and kept me going, and that twist at the end- man, that was a good'un. Good job man, hope to see more like this!!! (kinda wish Nietzsche made an appearance but eh I'm okay with it!)

Great game. I loved every second. It really made me think, which I love doing. I've always loved arguing, and also the Ace Attorney series. I always wanted a less law-centered Ace Attorney game, and I got it! Thank you so much for gracing the earth with this game. I feel you should run a kickstart or groupfund and get a full length version of this out, with more philosophers and maybe a bit less of guess-and-check. I also just wanted to say that the Arbiter's "happy" expression looked very cute for some reason. I love this game, and I love the developers of it.

Loved it. Though I disagree with conclusion with Hobbes. There was some real difficulty in last one, when I noticed problems in Arbiters arguments, but didn't know how to express those. In all game was really good, and it took me thoroughly inside it, so much that I couldn't stop playing before I saw conclusion.

Here is my thoughts about Natural state of Man and social contracts. Formed in 04:30 AM, but I'm pretty sure that this is valid.
It won't create infinite regression. It is actually social contract between strong and weak, ruler one being weak. Rulers task is to do menial tasks and for return they get marginal power.

Natural state is what brings most of the problems. It is easy to demonstrate that people are not naturally in constant war with each others. This is demonstrated when, for example, in actual wars, people show mercy to opposing side(there are better examples, but this one popped in my mind). Even after both have orders to kill the enemy, such orders cause enormous stress. This kind behavior shows that kill or be killed is not natural between humans and that there exists some other guidelines.

Contract cannot be referred in this case, because to be called a contract, both sides have to agree with terms. Any social contract between enemy is void, because there is no knowledge of agreed terms.

Completely silent, undocumented contract, in which participant are not aware of, or even aware of each other, can't be considered a contract.
