Erica Reed is no ordinary FBI agent. She has a secret weapon when it comes to tracking a killer, an uncanny sixth sense that reveals flashes of the past so she can piece together how a crime went down. She’s also grieving a devastating loss: the murder of her brother Scott, whom she tried and failed to save. Now a serial killer loose in Boston is leaving clues that only Erica, with her odd intuition, can decipher. As she struggles to control her increasingly erratic and frightening visions, how many more people must die before she can bring the killer to justice?
Each Cognition episode is a self-contained investigation into a unique serial killer that also advances Erica’s story and brings her closer to avenging Scott’s murder. With traditional “point and click” gameplay, stylized graphic novel artwork and cutscenes, and an intuitive interface optimized for iPad, this modern adventure is a must-have for fans of mystery games like Gabriel Knight, interactive narratives like Heavy Rain or The Walking Dead: The Game, supernatural serials like TV’s Fringe, CSI-style crime dramas, or all of the above.
Phoenix Online Studios, the independent team behind Cognition, are lifelong adventure fans who got their start with the ambitious King’s Quest spin-off The Silver Lining. Cognition also bears the mark of veteran adventure game designer Jane Jensen (creator of Gabriel Knight, Gray Matter, and the upcoming Moebius), who is serving as a story consultant on the series.
In addition to today’s iPad release, two episodes of Cognition: An Erica Reed Thriller are available so far for PC and Mac. To learn more about the series, visit the official website .
