Pre-Order Today to Receive Five Dollars Off on the Full Series Package, which Includes the Original Soundtrack and an Exclusive Digital Comic Prequel


Quote:
Twain Harte, CA – October 15, 2012 – Reverb Publishing and Phoenix Online Studios have announced that the Season Pass for their upcoming mystery adventure, Cognition: An Erica Reed Thriller, is now available for pre-order on Rain (http://www.raindg.com/title/cognition), GamersGate (http://www.gamersgate.com/DD-COGN/cognition-an-erica-reed-thriller-season-pass-bundle) and GameStop (http://www.impulsedriven.com/cognitionsp) at the discounted price of $24.99. Fans who pre-order will not only gain access to each of the four episodes as they are released (a $40 value), but will also receive digital copies of an exclusive prequel comic and the full soundtrack for the first episode, “The Hangman”.

Following the launch of the game, individual episodes will also be available for purchase for $9.99, and the Season Pass will be available as a package with the prequel comic for $29.99. The e-comic and soundtrack will also be available for individual purchase following release.

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.

Key features include:
•Engrossing, Episodic Narrative – As an engaging and narrative-driven game, Erica’s story is rife with intrigue and suspense over multiple episodes of thrilling mystery.
•Fully-Realized Characters – A very talented cast of voice actors help round out diverse characters with complex motivations. Each new character makes the game that much more dynamic.
•Choices Matter – Branching puzzles have several different ways to be completed and solved, offering unique paths for the player to take as they solve the mystery.
•Mind-Bending Challenges – The game is easy to pick up and play, but it certainly doesn’t skimp out on the challenging aspects of puzzling. Uncovering clues and putting pieces together make for a trial of one’s intuition and savvy.
•Stunning Art – The breathtaking, hand-drawn art evokes the mood of the narrative. Intrinsic to the atmosphere of the game, dark hues paint gruesome scenes vividly.
•All-Star Dev Team – Developed by a true “indie dream team”, the line-up includes comics artist Romano Molenaar (Batman, Witchblade, Tomb Raider, X-Men) as Art Director and renowned adventure game designer Jane Jensen (Gabriel Knight, Gray Matter, and the upcoming Moebius) lending her expertise as Story Consultant.

Yes, I received a newsletter giving pre-order info, BrownEyedTigre, which said :

"Right now on Rain, GameStop, and GamersGate (for the Europe crowd), you can pre-order the Season Pass of Cognition for the PC or Mac at a limited time only price of $24.99. With the Season Pass, you will get each of the four Episodes of the game upon release. This offer also includes a copy of the prequel e-comic and the full soundtrack of Episode 1: The Hangman!

I presume a "season pass" is referring to a download arrangement ??

My personal pledge paid for a disk copy (amongst other stuff) of which I hope there will be a mention soon - as the original delivery date on my "thank you for pledging" email was given as June 2012.

Hi Mad-- "Season Pass" means ordering all 4 episodes up front, and you'll get them when they release without having to do anything further. Also, the Season Pass is at a discounted price from buying each episode individually.

But! it sounds like you were one of our backers in the Kickstarter, which means you're all set and will be getting the episodes upon release already, so you don't need to do anything further. Regarding the "June 2012", that was, as it says on the Kickstarter page, an estimate of when we hoped to get the game out. I sent an update a while back on that to the backers explaining this, and also that the physical rewards will be sent out in one mailing after all of the episodes have been release.

If you didn't receive that email explaining this, please send me a PM and I'll make sure we've got the right email contact information for you.

Thanks very much, BrownEyedTigre thumbsup

And KatieHal .. thanks to you also - for clarifying the "Season Pass" references smile

Also, I probably did receive the email which explained the delay with the disk release but, to be honest, I have pledged to so many games and had so many update email newsletters about them all that I've lost track !!
[I don't keep every update about every game as there have just been too many.]

[I do always, however, look forward to announcements about disk releases evil]

We'd like to eventually have a "special edition" hard copy for sale, after the entire game has been released. So, I'd say maybe to probably, but it won't be available for a while yet.

GOG: I'm not sure. Of the two big digital download stores, our current focus is on Steam. I certainly wouldn't rule it out entirely, though.

Thanks!

Thanks a lot for the info, Katie. I already picked up the Gamersgate version - prefer them to Steam, though I do hope you get the greenlight - and I'll also pick up a hard copy if and when you have one available. Gives my wallet a break anyway if its further down the line. lol

By the way, I watched Toegoff's play through of the demo, and it looks fantastic so far. thumbsup

Hi.

I'm confused again !! woozy

According to the original "pledging" I thought a disk copy was certainly planned - as this is what I have in my Cognition folder :

"INVESTIGATOR: The previous prizes, plus a hard copy of the game and of the soundtrack!"

Has that now changed ??

Thanks.

Mad eek

Mad, this thread and announcement is for the Reverb published Cognition. Any info regarding the Kickstarter funding of the game is another matter. They will follow through with the kickstarter promises.

So the two are not connected ?? I do find that confusing when it's all concerning the same game !!

But then, despite all my pledgings, I can't say I'm at all "au fait" with the workings duh

However .... thanks BrownEyedTigre grin

Part of pledging and helping fund the games is the perks that come with various contributions. People that have not pledged may pay more and not get the same perks as someone who contributed to the game. There are certainly benefits to being part of the kickstarter.

Not sure if this will effect anything or not but I just voted for Cognition to be included in GOG's comunity wish list for games to be added. Possible if enough people signed the wishlist, GOG might try to make it happen.

Hi lovely people!

For those of you who backed the game through Kickstarter, do not fret. Even if we don't do a wide release of the game, we will definitely get you what we promised.

Katie was mostly referring to whether such physical copy will receive a wide release, or will it be more of a collectors limited edition for the people that backed us --or maybe we'll put it for sale at our site.

We haven't decided yet, but again, *you*, our great backers, will get what was promised to you smile

Hope that clears the confusion smile

Cesar
