Cognition: An Erica Reed Thriller is the four-part episodic point-and-click adventure game developed by Phoenix Online Studios (makers of the King’s Quest) with help from game designer Jane Jensen (Gabriel Knight) and comic book artist Romano Molenaar (The Darkness). Funded through Kickstarter back in 2011, Cognition was released on Mac and PC, with only the first two episodes found on Apple's IPad.
Taking control over Erica Reed, the player must hunt down the infamous "Cain Killer" after the kidnapping and murder of her brother Scott. Fueled with guilt after the failed attempt of saving the one that was close to her, our detective must now hone her unique talent called postcognition. This gift allows her to see into the past by touching objects. Each episode will contain one new serial killer for Erica to chase while uncovering the overarching story of the Cain Killer, all while improving and learning new skills that will aid the detective with her journey.
