Trailer and screenshots

A paranormal thriller with a graphic novel aesthetic, Cognition is a classic point-and-click adventure with a gripping storyline.

FBI agent Erica Reed has a “sixth sense” that reveals flashes of the past. She is able to piece together how crimes have unfolded. But she starts finding clues at crime scenes that seem to have been left specifically for her, and suspects that someone knows her secret.

Past and present converge when the details of Erica’s brother Scott’s death are revealed in The Cain Killer.  Erica comes face-to-face with his murderer in a showdown. Will Erica’s paranormal powers be enough to stop the Cain Killer from finishing what he started?

In celebration of the season finale, an online livestream launch party will be hosted by Phoenix Online Studios on its YouTube channel on Thursday, September 19th at 11am Pacific/2pm Eastern. It will feature live Q&A with the directors; giveaways; and not one but two special guests: Amy K. Browne, the voice of Cordelia Smith, and the one and only Jane Jensen.
