Cognition: An Erica Reed Thriller (Phoenix Online Studios)
FBI agent Erica Reed has an uncanny talent: with one touch, she can see the past and piece together how a crime unfolded. In the episodic adventure Cognition: An Erica Reed Thriller, players join Erica on a series of four grisly serial murder investigations, using her sixth sense at crime scenes and during witness interrogations to figure out what went down. But as the bureau closes in on the truth, the killers start striking dangerously close to home. Can Erica crack the case before she becomes the next victim?
The third of four Cognition episodes, The Oracle, will release for PC and Mac in May 2013, and it has a crazy twist: you play as the killer for part of the game! Phoenix Online Studios will show the new episode at Indie Press Day, along with an earlier episode on iPad.
Genre: Episodic Adventure
About Phoenix Online Studios
Established in 2004, Phoenix began as a group of King’s Quest fans from around the world that came together to create an unofficial sequel to the series. The resulting project, The Silver Lining, earned widespread community support and withstood two cease-and-desist orders to become one of the most ambitious fan projects ever made. After completing four Silver Lining episodes, the team shifted their focus to commercial projects with Cognition: An Erica Reed Thriller, which debuted in October 2012. The team is also working on an English version of the Italian indie adventure Face Noir, and is providing art and programming for Jane Jensen’s upcoming game Moebius.
