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.



Rated 5 / 5 stars

I just love this game, I played it the first time it was submited and then I was scared when I see the game disappear, but is good to see it again submited by the real makers.

And for ElectricBlueMax, with all respect, but NONSENSE!, although is impossible (maybe) to prove the gods existence, it's impossible to prove the contrary too, so Socrates in conceding the idea of their existence to evaluate the consistency of Eutifrón arguments, and accepting this, we have ways to know what they command, like oracles or the Bible, so even if it may be hard to know in which the gods agree, it doesn't exclude them as the source of morality.

By this, I don't think what you say is a counterpoint of Eutifrón's ideas, or what dou you think?

I really, really like this game.

I cannot begin to describe how much I enjoy Socrates Jones. The writing is fantastic, the characters are memorable, every joke hits a bulls-eye, and there is even an emotional storyline woven into the mix. But all of this is nothing compared to the game's greatest strength: originality. It's NEW. It's DIFFERENT. It takes the style of the Ace Attorney series and somehow manages to surpass it with it's own unique themes and gameplay elements. It takes philosophy, one of the scariest classes to teach and learn, and makes it fun and inviting. It takes risks and ends up shining above the rest of Newground's countless offerings.

Socrates Jones is a game I will not forget. For that reason, I have given it the distinction of being one of my TOP 10 GAMES ever released on Newgrounds. It truly is an adventure that needs to be experienced, and hopefully it will continue to be experienced for the foreseeable future.
