Indie developer Phoenix Online Studios is bringing its new point and click title Cognition: An Erica Reed Thriller to digital download platforms thanks to the help of Reverb Publishing. Cognition will put players into an immersive thriller staring FBI agent Erica Reed as she is haunted by the unsolved case of a serial killer who claimed Reeds brother as one of his victims. Agent Reed will utilize her ability of post-cognition to unravel this case one clue at a time. Post-Cognition gives Reed the ability to sense an objects past with a simple touch, however the situation will become all the more complex as someone knows of Ericas secret talent.
Cognition is a smart, narrative-driven game that both fits in nicely and yet stands apart in our library of published titles, said Ted Lange, executive producer of Reverb Publishing. The art is truly outstanding and evocative of the game’s gritty atmosphere. It’s very exciting to see old-school point-and-click games like this come back in full force, and Cognition is a stellar example to set.
