Hi all,
This isn't directly related to Socrates Jones, but the two main developers (Connor and Val) are currently involved with another game project. It's called Elsinore, and it's an adventure game about time loops set in the world of William Shakespeare's play "Hamlet." We've been working on it as a side project for about two years now, and just today we launched a Kickstarter that we hope will cover the remaining development costs.




If you have a moment to check it out, we really appreciate every dollar that can get us closer to our goal! (And you know you want that art book...) We also have a Greenlight page up.


If you're interested in following our progress, our development blog is on Tumblr. We also posts updates on our Twitter and Facebook page. We've put a lot of ourselves into this project, and we're excited to finally share it.

Socrates Jones: Pro Filosofer is een flash-game en avonturenspel met een fantastische verhaallijn. In het spel moet je discussies winnen door goede argumenten te geven en argumenten van de ander te weerleggen. Je discussieert met de grootste filosofen uit de geschiedenis als John Stuart Mill en Thomas Hobbes om de aard van het moraal te vinden en te ontsnappen uit het hiernamaals


Daarnaast is het spel ook erg grappig, hartstikke origineel en mysterieus. De filosofie die je in dit spel leert is op de werkelijkheid gebaseerd en daarom erg leerzaam.


Het spel is beschikbaar in Nederlands.

Hi all! The official Socrates Jones website is now up and running. From now on, this will be the central hub for all content related to the game. (We got tired of having it strewn all over the Internet.)


Right now, we're focusing a lot of our effort on getting the game translated into other languages. Check back soon for more news about our progress.
