Cognition: An Erica Reed Thriller is a point-and-click adventure mystery game. With the mouse being your only tool, you navigate through crime scenes, dark alleys, and various buildings looking for clues and interacting with various objects and people. When clicking on items or people, you’ll usually be presented with 3 options. You can either: look at the item/person in question, talk to the person/pick the item up, or use an item you have equipped. An added bonus is the ability to double click on an object or person and Erica will sprint, much needed but less noticed feature.
