Twain Harte, CA – July 31, 2012 – Phoenix Online Studios, a rising new indie developer, is thrilled to announce that its chilling adventure title Cognition: An Erica Reed Thriller will be coming soon to digital download platforms with the help of Reverb Publishing. Cognition joins the smash-hit Dungeon Defenders, as well as dozens more, in Reverb Publishing's growing list of independently-developed video games that fit with Reverb's model of fostering talent and helping small teams and their projects succeed.
"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."
Cognition 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 with the ability of post-cognition, sensing an object's past with a mere touch. What unravels is a much greater, much more complex and enigmatic mystery, as it becomes clear that someone knows her secret.
Cognition joins Reverb Publishing's growing roster of titles, which includes the massively-successful Dungeon Defenders, the recently-released Jeremy McGrath's Offroad and JAM Live Music Arcade, as well as the upcoming Sanctum 2, Primal Carnage, Beatbuddy, Black Knight Sword and much more.
