Socrates Jones: Pro Philo

Share Collapse

Author Comments

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.

Still the best game of its kind after all these years. <3

This is an older game that I had forgotten about. On the update, it was brought back to the light of day. It brings back good memories.

General Tips

If you follow this walkthrough to the letter, you'll miss out on a lot. Much amusement can be found by asking questions I don't tell you to ask and not skipping over anything.

You can fast-forward dialogue by repeatedly clicking the NEXT button.

If you get stuck, question everything. You'll never lose credibility by asking questions.

Not every idea that appears on the Idea Slate will come in handy during a chapter. Don't use it as a checklist.

In the options menu (click the gears), you can turn on the option to highlight questions you've already asked. This is off by default, but it's incredibly useful when you need to keep track of what you've done.

Played this on Newgrounds years ago and enjoyed it so much I decided to check out the AA series. Not only is this a fantastic game in it's own right but it introduced me to one of my favorate series of all time.
