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... 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

This game is amazing! And making me think I should play some of the inspiring series (I did enjoy a demo of their latest title, but we're beside the point). I was fairly worried that I wouldn't like the ending given that I have my own set of views on the matter of morality. I feared this game would force me to adopt a philosophy against my own opinion, without the opportunity to argue my own case, merely in order to "win" the game. Which it didn't in the slightest, hence the brilliance. It makes me want to discuss philosophy with calm rational people. Though you probably do have to die to find people with that much time and patience. Thank you for this game!

last year we studied these philosophers (kant and mill, actually) I was just as exited as ari when I confronted them. Great game. If you'd do a sequel, or anything like this, with historical figures, I play it with the same enthusiasm as this one (or even more).

A brilliantly executed game. It stays true to the original phoenix wright style while being elevated into its own with the whole debating philosophy premise. There wasn't a moment in the game which didn't seem to flow mostly due to the writing in general which was very interesting and compelling to hear about such views while at the same time pointing out the flaws. The best aspect for sure is the fact that the views, though flawed, were never crushed as they were all proven to be correct in their own way, just that nothing could be an all encompassing fact.

This was definitely worth the play and the time it took. The only gripe I had was more of a personal incompetence one with how sometimes it seemed more like another response would be more fitting to begin with, but in the end the number of chances was never enough to cause me to fail, despite coming close once with the start of the third guy.

I would recommend this for fans of Phoenix Wright style for sure, as it a competent and unique take on the whole courtroom debating style.
