Last Halloween, Cognition: An Erica Reed Thriller kicked off with Scott Reed's brutal murder at the hands of the Cain Killer. Today Erica Reed finally comes face to face with her brother's killer in this paranormal adventure game now fully available for PC and Mac from CognitionGame.com, Steam, GOG, and other online stores.

You can view Screenshots here.

You can view the final trailer here.

Check out the reviews for Part 1 and Part 2 and Part 3 here.

And kudos to MaG for posting the final walktrough here.

Quote:
The Story So Far...
When it comes to fighting crime, FBI agent Erica Reed has an ace up her sleeve: a sixth sense that lets her glimpse the past to see how a crime went down. She uses this profile serial killers in Boston, hopeful that her visions will lead to a break in the Cain Killer case. Then she starts finding clues left specifically for her. Someone knows her secret. Are they trying to help, or luring her into a trap?

With three grisly cases solved, Erica finally has the Cain Killer within her reach in Cognition's intense finale. But her colleagues have fallen and she stands alone -- unless she's willing to accept the help of someone she does not trust. In the moment of truth, will she go for justice or revenge? The choice is yours.

For a story synopsis of each of Cognition's four episodes, visit this page: http://www.postudios.com/cognition/episodes.php

• First commercial game from Phoenix Online Studios (http://www.postudios.com), an indie team that got their start with the King's Quest spin-off The Silver Lining (http://www.tsl-game.com)

• Former Sierra game designer Jane Jensen (Gabriel Knight, Gray Matter) helped with Cognition's story

• Art direction was overseen by comic book artist Romano Molenaar (X-Men, Batman, The Darkness)
• All four episodes are now available for PC and Mac

Happy Gaming!

Finished it yesterday.

If for some reason your cursor disappear, then just hit the B key and it will magically resurface again wink

Missilo, I agree, fantastic game. thumbsup I also just finished it yesterday. I never had a problem with a disappearing cursor, but I did have a lag at times, which didn't help when it happened during the tenser sequences. lol I got through them though, and this is definitely the best game I've played this year. rah

Thank you Ana,
I'm so glad I waited for all episodes to come out before starting this game, I wouldn't have remembered enough if i had to wait for so long in between, I'm currently playing the wise monkey and enjoying it very much smile

This is a fantastic game...the last installment is quite short though as compared to the rest.
If you can wait for all episodes to be released before you play, I would suggest that,

Click to reveal..
Also this last episode spent too much time with the psion powers instead of other adventure game type puzzles etc.

In the game from Steam, I only ran into the disappearing cursor.
Which can be summoned again with clicking "B"

Others have reported at few graphical glitches, but none really gamebreaking.

Besides, the devs are working on ironing them out as we speak, so go ahead and get it.
The game is fantastic laugh
