“I absolutely love point-and-click adventure titles, and what Phoenix Online has done with Cognition is nothing short of amazing,” said Balazs Horvath, executive producer with Reverb Publishing. “From the different ways to investigate crime scenes, to the dark and moody set pieces and the tense and foreboding soundtrack, gamers will have a thrill ride trying to solve Cognition.”
From Phoenix Online Studios, the acclaimed developer behind The Silver Lining, Cognition: An Erica Reed Thriller is an engrossing narrative with a truly evocative atmosphere. This chilling point-and-click adventure is a thought-provoking mystery following Erica Reed, a Boston-based FBI agent, haunted by the unsolved case of a serial killer who took her brother’s life. With the use of her post-cognition abilities – seeing an object’s past with a touch – players are challenged to unravel a complex tableau of characters,plots, and puzzles over the course of four episodes. A talented cast of voice actors, breathtaking hand-drawn art, an all-star development team (artist Romano Molenaar and story consultant Jane Jensen) and branching puzzles that have several different ways to be completed, Cognition is an unforgettable adventure game experience.
