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.

Wow... This was awesome and very refreshing!
While it took me about a week off and on (I don't have a full block of time to devote to games on here anymore), this game's message was nice and strong. The little bits of humor mixed in with the more serious game play made arguments that might have been boring suddenly relatable and interesting. The answer at the end, while probably not too hard to figure out, was a welcome relief after all of the arguments.
Some people complain about it, but all I- and probably a lot of other players- can say is: "NONSENSE!" This game was cool, intelligent, and while perhaps it was "imperfect", it was certainly worth playing. Here, take my five stars!

Excellent though imperfect: too many logical flaws. In many cases, the presentation included something which could not be backed up (i.e., the answer given could not be backed up either). Nonetheless, as imperfect as it is, it's excellent. Though more perfect would have been much better!

What? Now do not take offense in this I can understand you devoted a fair amount of time on this and I can see that but I have to review it as a flash game and that is what I have to do.

Gameplay: I can take it as an adventure game but the point is obscure. In the long run all you have to do is spam the 3 questions on each sentence and then try the arguments you will collect in each sentence again. Even if you lose you will eventually win and there are no medals or achievements to make you do anything but the above.

Story: Humorous and nice, the characters are easy to sympathize with and I would want to give more stars just because of them.

Personal Note: Philosophy. By making this you and everyone who plays it supposedly knows the meaning of all these arguments? Now I can't blabber on about what is right or wrong but making everything as pictured in the game so steadfast ruins the immersion feeling. Some others would see it as you presenting a wiser-than-thoy flash developer trying to "enlighten" us stupid internet babies which is not the case but is what the message that goes across is in the end.

I honestly do not know how this should be called a game maybe call it an app or something but it definitely isn't a game.

Simply Brilliant

This is quite possibly the best game i have ever had the honor of playing on newgrounds. It sets a godly high standard for how games should be made with the mechanics of the game being as simple as 123 with characters that are funny and likable from the start even with the simplicity of them. I feel like i definently learned a lot from this game about my own feelings on philosophy and about some incredible philosophers and their theories. Thank you for this game it was a great distraction from porn(lol seriously) i loved every minute of it and i wish you good fortune and riches in your future.
