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

Great, instructive, and well realized!
Still the 1st argument is allways the best, "your face is ugly" makes me laugh everytime XD

You are truly a genius, the format and exploration of the different philosophical views was astounding, and your teams breath of knowledge of the subject was amazing. The mechanics of digging into the different philosophies meat and bones to not only reach a better understanding but also inspire our own conclusions and thinking on philosophies that may otherwise seem perfect is simply amazing.

And i applaud you for your ending, at one point about half way through i was beginning to question the nature of the games philosophy, thinking you were guiding us towards a forgone philosophical conclusion of some sort, possibly of your own philosophical views. This at first upset me, as i knew that a true philosophical debate was not within the parameters of the game, and the arguments and counter arguments are limited due to the format. However in the end you surprised me by guiding me towards a conclusion i had never heard of or considered myself, without espousing the virtue of one philosophical view point over all others. This in itself shows the true genius of the game, by promoting philosophicle thought above all else, without guiding you towards one specific philosophy

In that regards, if you make a sequal (which i hope to plato you do) i would lay of bashing the various philosophical views if possible. A game as great of this should encourage thinking in all philosophies, and the attacks against europhyties philosophy (though i agree) may have turned some people off to this avenue of philosophical thought. I do however accept that the bashing did lead to entertaining banter and made the game more enjoyable, which as a developer you also have to consider, so regardless of this fact you get all my stars.

I have never learned so much yet had so much fun at the same time in my entire life. This was an amazing experience! To actually discuss philosophy with the greatest minds of time, and then try and pick holes in their logic (in the format of a Pheonix Wright game nonetheless), must be one of the most interesting and unique game play elements I've ever seen. I'm gonna be showing this to friends and family for sure.

You should think about maybe contacting schools and see if they would be interested in using this game for educational purposes. I would personally have loved to play this in my philosophy class.

Well...that whas an intelligent and fun game. I was hoping to beat the shit out of Marx, but that can be done in terms of politics, society or economics, maybe not that much in terms of morality. If you consider making a sequel, it would be a blast to have him, as a challenge. Awesome game
