Socrates Jones: Pro Philo

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.


I actually kind of saw that coming, just because I watch Supernatural so much and it always comes down to "oh, this person sold his/her soul to save that person." I guess I'm just used to it! ^_^

Vary good game, and vary well put together. and for all of you looking for a walk trough might i recommend Wikipedia?

This was truly amazing. I appreciate it, this made my day, and really made me think. Keep up the great work!

I feel like I accomplished something with this game. When I beat it, it felt like I earned it. I will elaborate further on why this has occurred, but the sheer fact that it happened is a very good sign that you have made a great game.

First off as a writer (or I call myself that, at least) I appreciate your ability to bring out character traits. This should have been harder for Socrates and Ari as people in dire situations tend to act in black in white but somehow you were able to give character to them is amazing, at least to me.

I'm not going to credit you for "creating" all these points and counter-points because I could just find this stuff on the web instead of thinking about it myself (though if you did do that, DAMN) but the ability to adapt it into the general storyline is a nice trait that should be noted.

The game also got me thinking about my choices rather than blindly choosing them. Though I regret not insulting people's faces the payoff was that I really thought about things and played into the game. I felt at times lost and frustrated but usually my instinct to use the amended piece of the argument, question everything and to use the most recent statements (unless they have already been used). At other times I actually was able to figure out flaws in arguments, and it makes me feel good and not stoopid.

There really isn't much to the game apart from writing so there isn't much else I can praise. Someone could like the humor but for me it was hit and miss and there were times I knew the counterpoint but I couldn't figure out which statement to use. I liked the use of NONSENSE! as a verbal and visual confirmation you picked the right option.

And that's it.

Great game! It blends complex thought and Phoenix-Wright-esque "Nonsense" objections quite beautifully :D
