About Cognition: An Erica Reed Thriller

About this game

The Cognition - An Erica Reed Thriller Game of the Year Edition includes volume 1 of the award winning soundtrack!

FBI agent Erica Reed has an uncanny talent: she can see the past and piece together how a crime unfolded. But not even this sixth sense could save her younger brother, Scott, from a brutal serial killer. Three years later, the investigation into Scott’s murder has gone cold -- but Erica’s work has only just begun.

Jump into Cognition: An Erica Reed Thriller, the exciting four-part series that brings Erica face to face with the deranged demons of her past. A serial killer is loose in Boston -- one who seems to be leaving deliberate clues that only Erica, with her unique post-cognitive abilities, can uncover. Is she finally on her way to solving Scott’s murder? Or, blinded by vengeance, is she falling into a trap that could cost Erica her life? And how does this new killer know her secret?

Winner of six 2013 Reader’s Choice Aggie Awards, including Game of the Year, this edition of Cognition includes everything in the original game, plus brand new director commentary for all 4 episodes and exclusive content including concept art, storyboards, outtakes and other behind-the-scenes material about the development!

Developed by Phoenix Online Studios (makers of the King’s Quest spin-off The Silver Lining), with contributions from veteran game designer Jane Jensen (Gabriel Knight, Gray Matter) and comic book artist Romano Molenaar (Batman, X-Men, The Darkness), Cognition is a thrilling adventure that grips you and won’t let go.

An old style point and click adventure game. It has an engaging story which I enjoyed a lot. The puzzles are a bit on the easy side so it does not require some major brain power and no major illogical item combinations. Graphic could be better, but it is an old game by now so its not that bad. It's nice to play something not pixelized, I know old games were like that, but people forget that at that time the screens were lower resolution so games actually looked much better. I miss good non-pixlized point and click adventures. The game has some awesome songs (The taking!) inside which you should listen to even if you don't plan to play the game. All in all I warmly recommend it.
