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 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.

Great game! I first played this when I was studying philosophy in High School, and so I could really understand and appreciate a lot of the references, and viewpoints. I must admit, I've never played any Ace Attorney games, but if they're nearly as good as this, then I'll have to get around to them some day.

Like SuperMegaUltraGiga pointed out, it reminds me a lot of Ace Attorney, but I'm guessing it was made in inspiration from that game. Nonetheless, nice game play.
