Phoenix Online Studios has expanded availability of its 4-part episodic adventure Cognition: An Erica Reed Thriller by releasing it for iOS and Mac.
Erica is able to see glimpses of the past via retrocognition. When a serial killer leaves clues only she can understand, she has a vision of herself with a bullet in her head. She needs to stop the killer before it's too late.
Each of Cognition's episodes is self-contained, but all four episodes combine to present a complete story. The game combines a stylized graphic novel aesthetic with a gritty story. It should appeal to fans of Gabriel Knight, Heavy Rain, The Walking Dead: The Game, and CSI-style crime dramas.
Cognition for PC and Mac will conclude in September 2013 and on iPad soon after that. There are also plans to bring the game to Android and retail.
