Cognition Theories and Speculation!
« on: October 30, 2012, 10:24:05 AM »
The upcoming Episode titles are out there, but what do they really mean? What's Erica going to come up against next? What's really going on behind the scenes? Let's hear your theories and wild speculations!

Obviously, spoilers may follow, so you've been warned. :)

I'll hazard a cheap guess and say that this might be somehow related to Episode 2: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Three_wise_monkeys

Maaaaybe.  :suffer:

Oh! I think that may have been the first Suffer I've gotten to use for Cognition! Awesome!

I'd love to see some fanart of Erica vs. Three Wise Monkeys. Actual monkeys. :)

One thing that I noticed was the trident symbol. It was tattooed on Antony Longmoore's arm, it was used on his computer to find the last hanging location, AND, it was used by the Cain killer as well, on the wheel Erica had to open the door with. So, we can assume that Davies killer and Cain is the same person.

Now...suspects...

I think I'll place my bets on Cordelia for now. She was at the cemetery the night Scott died. Aaand, she mentioned that she took care of the "family business", and that her dead brother Max was an ace at it. Hmmm... :sneaky:
So Max died in a fire, and Cordelia picked up where he left of.

What's that? She said Max died six years ago? That's in crazy-time, silly! It goes twice as fast as regular time!

There's so many movies/games/books/comics that I don't know where to start!

Well, better start with the classics and work my way forward...

You can assume that if you like. :suffer:

I noticed the trident symbol as well (well, I guess everyone did, since we had to take a picture of it  :P). It could also be interpreted as the Greek letter "psi". Rose said Erica was a psion so I suppose the two are related. Besides, the hidden message "if your eyes could see what mine can't", points to Erica's skills as well. I'm not very good at elaborating theories, so I'll remain cautious and wait for episode 2 to check if my intuition is right  ;)

Cordelia's very intriguing, I agree...

Cordelia definitely seems connected.

CORDELIA = OLD ERICA

There is time travel involved.

And a godlike poodle.

And Gwen Graham is obviously Alexander and Cassimas daughter trapped in another dimension, she just doesn't know who her real parents are. And that's her poodle.

This is just a small suggestion, and the team might have had something planned like this anyway, but a nice Thanksgiving gift would be a trailer for Episode 2 to help with the theories ;)

Cesar planned the next best thing for Thanksgiving present, a spoilerish chat on steam groups today at 8pm EST time. I believe developers will be chatting up with everyone and talking about Episode 2 stuff :P

Besides the Giveaway, that is! 


Those who do not have steam, I invite you to register an account there and participate in the Steam Groups. Lots of exclusive goodies there :D

We've got new screenshots up from Episode 2. Do they fuel any speculations you might have? :)

Well, that would certainly be a plot twist NO ONE would expect coming! 

Heh - could you imagine that... like seriously playing a game, and suddenly....

"I wanna dance!"

And all of a sudden, a cop drama becomes "Fame"!  Heh...

Screenies look good.  I'm getting psyched to play Episode II.
