Phoenix Online Studios’ Moody Point-and-Click Adventure Title Gaining Momentum on Valve’s New Community-Driven Platform
Twain Harte, CA– September 25, 2012– Reverb Publishing announced today that Cognition: An Erica Reed Thriller , one of the first games submitted to the newly-launched Steam Greenlight community, has risen to the top 70 most popular games on the site.
From Phoenix Online Studios, the acclaimed developer behind The Silver Lining, Cognition: An Erica Reed Thriller is an engrossing narrative with a truly evocative atmosphere. This chilling point-and-click adventure is a thought-provoking mystery following Erica Reed, a Boston-based FBI agent, haunted by the unsolved case of a serial killer who took her brother’s life. With the use of her post-cognition abilities,– seeing an object’s past with a touch– players are challenged to unravel a complex tableau of characters, plots and puzzles over four episodes.
“As developers, we work to build interest from the gaming community before a new title is released, but Steam has taken that to a whole different level,” said Cesar Bittar, CEO of Phoenix Online Studios.“We are floored by the amazing support and feedback given on Greenlight so far and cannot wait to deliver the first episode of Cognition: An Erica Reed Thriller to Steam users.”
