Take on the role of Erica Reed, a Boston FBI agent with the power to see the past, as she follows the trail of four different serial killers, and a series of clues left for someone with her specific ability. Who’s leaving the clues? How do they know her secret, and what do they want from her? In Episode 2, someone close to Erica is kidnapped by the Wise Monkey, a serial killer fixated on the gruesome mutilation of their victims. and she's in a race against time to save his life. With the Wise Monkey case in her hands and the FBI’s resources already stretched thin, she’s on her own to find the killer before it’s too late - again. Developed by a true “indie dream team”, the line-up includes comics artist Romano Molenaar (Batman, Witchblade, Tomb Raider, X-Men) as Art Director and renowned adventure game designer Jane Jensen (Gabriel Knight, Gray Matter, and the upcoming Moebius) lending her expertise as Story Consultant.

Game sure is great, tho I didn't play the 2nd episode yet. But I am sure it's just as good as the first one was, which kinda left me behind speechless tbh. Still a bit sad, the german subs/translation didn't/wont make it into the other episodes as the first one was really smoothly done imo. But oh well, can't have everything I guess. Despite that fact Cognition sure is one of the best crime adventures I ever played so far, hopes are high for the following episodes. Keep it up guys/gals o/

Thanks Scytharia! We do want to add the German translation back in--probably after the rest of the eps have been released we'll be able to. :)

Enjoy Episode 2!
