Product Details:

From Phoenix Online Studios, the acclaimed developer behind The Silver Lining, Cognition: An Erica Reed Thriller is an engrossing narrative with 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. Taking a turn for the strange, Erica investigates her mystery with the help of her post-cognition abilities - seeing an object's past with a touch. What unravels is a much greater, much more complex and enigmatic thriller, as it becomes clear that someone knows Erica's secrets.

  • Engrossing, Episodic Narrative - As a fully narrative-driven game, Erica's story is rife with intrigue and suspense over four episodes of thrilling mystery. Supported by voiced narration, this story is truly engaging.
  • Fully-Realized Characters - A very talented cast of voice actors rounds out the diverse characters with complex motivations. Each new character makes the game that much more dynamic.
  • Mind-Bending Challenges - This 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 lineup includes comics artist Romano Molenaar and renowned designer Jane Jensen (Gabriel Knight, Gray Matter) lending her expertise to the story.
  • Your Choices Matter - Each episode features branching paths, different ways to be complete and solve key puzzles, ensuring different paths for Erica to take to solve the mystery.
