Greenlight Spotlight is a recurring feature in which we preview, play, and interview the developers of games seeking publication through the Steam Greenlight process. Cognition: An Erica Reed Thriller is developed by Phoenix Online Studios and published by Reverb Publishing. A copy of episode one of the game was provided for the purpose of this feature.
Cognition: An Erica Reed Thriller is the second labor of love from Phoenix Online Studios. While the team’s first project The Silver Lining was based on the popular King’s Quest property, their second project took an original direction, with Cognition: An Erica Reed Thriller being the fruits of their efforts. An Erica Reed Thriller is an all-new point and click crime drama adventure at its core with a psychological twist. Our heroine Erica Reed is an FBI agent working out of Boston armed with a sixth sense. This advanced form of a woman’s intuition allows Erica to interact with objects and see moments from the past. Using basic detective skills, finding and collecting evidence, interviewing individuals, the power of the internet, and her bizarre and unique visions, Erica is tasked with solving crimes and catching murderers.
