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.


A good game but......I just have to ask:


ChiefWakamakamu responds:

Yep! It is, in fact =P

The game is good, but as a Hellene (Greek) person studying Philosophy I can say there are a lot of inaccuracies about the lives and philosophical views of those great Thinkers. On the other hand the game is interesting and fun.


if the values you possess influenced you to create the game, then respectfully i presume you're aware of your values and their intrinsic powers over our psyches; furthermore, if so, then, nonetheless, i wish to acknowledge and emphasize the value of conscious praxis: kudos, again!

for our sake, i'll disregard the possibility of the game being an accident, mistake, replica, &c. and singly consider it your purposeful masterpiece.

considering so, i wish to propose to you the essence of my analysis. i'll be quite vague about that which i'll presume you can infer or understand yourself. there were some evident fallacies: a quantifiable variety of inconsistent premises and irrational propositions lied hidden among the splendor of philosophical discovery. i decide against presenting my conclusions primarily bc it'd be counterproductive to the exp. of investigation and secondarily bc i feel this is a disadvantageous medium for effective communication. were you to desire a dialectic with me, i'd be more than happy to make the journey together; however, as it stands, we cannot actively communicate through a review. bc i realize my limitations to expression here, i therefore will restrict myself to reviewing your game with vague honesty. i apologize in advance if i'm acting inconsiderate to you or your contribution to newgrounds and the community.

on the bright side, the game was def. a positive exp. while this cannot be an absolute observation, it is understandable why your game has touched an unexpectedly sensitive audience (relative to what many before you have attempted but failed to accomplish). its accessibility—coupled with its organization, presentability (as a game), and entertainment—ironically, makes for a rather uncritical appeal, granted the language barrier is perhaps the single obstacle which you cannot easily avoid. your execution, contrary to wut people may have already commented, is on the whole a remarkable accomplishment. in part, your success is due to the medium for your idea; however, that is in no way discrediting you.

i'll say this: surely you've at least some exp. in the real world that you would sufficiently resolve the many presumptions existing concerning the study of philosophy, as well as the individual variance that on the whole constitutes and conditions society on average for or against the value of philosophy as an essential part of growth, life. were you to confirm my suspicions, please be specific as to wut exp. you've—i'm curious.

finally, i sympathize with some of your reviewers: you didn't actualize the full potential of your idea. maybe you considered that nething greater might have edged closer to intimidating rather than exciting, in which case i understand. maybe you yourself r still growing—as a thinker, as a game creator, wutever it may be. either way, i wish you'll consider the limitless potential your idea harnesses. feel free to discuss the idea with me further, if it'd be of interest to you.

there is so much more i could and would like to share, but more than nething i'm grateful. thank you sincerely for your compassion and dedication to newgrounds and its community; thank you sincerely for your love for humanity.

i wish we can all grow from your contribution.

Nice game. A little hard for me, but I prefer to think that my mistakes has been based on my bad knowledge of English.
I like the idea and the most part of implementation, but i still can win the ~half of discussions simple, ehm, bruyeforcing it. This is soo sad for me.
Also, sorry for any mistake that i has been do in this review. I hope you still can read it w/o aversion :)

People find this review helpful!

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.
