Check out Flotsam's review of Episode 1 here.

Quote:
SAN JOSE, Calif. - January 30, 2013 - FBI agent Erica Reed's hunt for a killer continues today with The Wise Monkey, the second episode of Cognition: An Erica Reed Thriller. This exciting four part series is developed by Phoenix Online Studios, the indie team behind the King's Quest spin-off The Silver Lining, with contributions from veteran adventure game designer Jane Jensen and renowned comic book artist Romano Molenaar. The Wise Monkey is available DRM-free for PC and Mac, both as a $9.99 standalone game and in a $29.99 "season pass" bundle, from http://CognitionGame.com/store.

Boston native Erica Reed has an advantage when it comes to tracking a killer: an unusual set of post-cognitive abilities that help her sense how a crime unfolded. She also has a score to settle with the murderer who took her brother's life three years ago. But vengeance takes a backseat in The Wise Monkey when Erica's colleague and sometimes lover, Sully, falls hostage to a rare female serial killer fixated on the gruesome mutilation of her victims. Only Erica's sixth sense can save him, but with the Wise Monkey sharpening her scalpels, time is running out.

"The first episode of Cognition was all about setting the stage for Erica's story: introducing her abilities, experiencing the loss of her brother, and establishing the problems plaguing the FBI's Boston bureau. As people who played it already know, that episode ended with a crazy twist. There's no turning back now," says Katie Hallahan, who designed and directed The Wise Monkey. "Now another person Erica loves is in grave danger, and she's at her breaking point -- another loss could be one too many. And the things she has to go through to save Sully from the Wise Monkey... let's just say it's intense."

Those who haven't yet embarked on this thrilling adventure are encouraged to visit pay-what-you-want site IndieGameStand (http://indiegamestand.com/), where Episode 1: The Hangman is currently on offer for a fraction of the usual price. (This deal will end on January 31.) Anyone who wants to play the rest of the series after purchasing The Hangman individually -- whether from IndieGameStand, the official Cognition website, or any of the online portals selling the game -- can upgrade to a season pass for just $19.99. Visit http://CognitionGame.com/upgrade for details.

Cognition's remaining episodes, The Oracle and The Cain Killer, are both planned for PC and Mac release within the next six months. The series will also debut soon on iPad.

Happy Gaming!

There's definitely definitely definitely no logic to human behaviour.

I bought the Cognition Season Pass for 4 episodes of Cognition through GameStop. As of today, Episode 2 has not been offered as a download.

Did anyone else on GameBoomers order through GameStop. If so, any luck installing Episode 2?

I've tried sending several emails to GameStop; but I've still not had my questions answered.

I'm very disappointed with GameStop.

Thanks for any help that can be offered.

Here is a solution from another thread:

When I downloaded the file it would not open and didn't show up as an executable file. I found on their boards that this happens and the quick fix is to rename the file with the suffix .exe and doing this alows the file to open and install the game.

Evidently windows 7 forgets to add the suffix when it downloads the file and you have to put it in manually.

Judy, email Phoenix at support -at- postudios.com and explain the situation and I'm sure they'll help you out.

GameBoomers is WONDERFUL. I can always count on your forums for good advice and helpful hints.

I did as suggested and contacted Phoenix online.
They honored a GameStop coupon which allowed me to download, install and play Cognition Episode 2.

Once again, your forum contributors have come to my rescue.
