Was Cognition inspired by The Crow?
« on: October 23, 2013, 02:11:21 PM »
I've found several similarities between the game Cognition and the movie The Crow.

(Spoilers to both the game and the movie below.)

Spoiler (mouse over to reveal):

So were these all intentional or just purely coincidental?

Definitely coincidence! I've actually never seen The Crow. Cez may have, but it never came up as a reference or source of inspiration for the game while we were designing it.

Well, not to be a spammer or anything, but I'd heartily recommend the movie.  It's some of Brandon Lee's finest work.  And tragically, his last, due to negligence on the prop crew's part.  :(

I have never watched the movie either. Always wanted to.
