by on Feb.12, 2014, under cognition, face noir

Today Adventure Gamers opened the Reader’s Choice poll, and once again we were lucky enough to make the list, though this time Cognition is accompanied by Face Noir as both games are eligible for nominations. This time around both titles are included in every category with the exception of Best Comedy and Best Console/Handheld Exclusive.

We are all thrilled and humbled to see to see Cognition and Face Noir being nominated among such greats as the Walking Dead and Brothers: A Tale of Two sons.

It’s an honor to be considered in the same group as these titles, so we’d like thank Adventure Gamers and most importantly, thank all of you who have supported us thus far. Finally, good luck to all adventure game designers, you have helped bring about the Adventure Gaming Renaissance.
