COGNITION: AN ERICA REED THRILLERTM

FBI agent Erica Reed has an uncanny talent: she can see the past and piece together how a crime unfolded. But not even this sixth sense could save her younger brother, Scott, from a brutal serial killer. Three years later, the investigation into Scott’s murder has gone cold -- but Erica’s work has only just begun. A serial killer is loose in Boston -- one who seems to be leaving deliberate clues that only Erica, with her unique post-cognitive abilities, can uncover. Is she finally on her way to solving Scott’s murder? Or, blinded by vengeance, is she falling into a trap that could cost Erica her life? And how does this new killer know her secret? Cognition is a thrilling adventure that grips you and won’t let go.

February 26, 2015 - Phoenix Online on Pax East

PAX East is a yearly gaming festival held in Boston. Created in 2010, it has been hailed as a celebration of gaming culture and quickly made a name itself through its keynote speeches, panels on game topics, tournaments and more. With this year’s PAX East merely a week away, Phoenix Online Studios and Infamous Quests will  will not only be available for interviews, but are also appearing on a Sunday panel! On Sunday at 1:30 PM in the Bumblebee Theatre, our very own Katie Hallahan and Infamous Quests’ co-founder, Steve Alexander will be panelists for “Reboot Our Roots: Bringing Our Favorite Games Back to Life”, along with other prominent indie adventure game developers. The panel seeks to answer the following question:“Many of today’s indie games are spiritual successors of yesteryear’s hits, from King’s Quest to Gabriel Knight to Quest for Glory—with some even being developed by the same teams that brought us the originals. What’s it like to reboot a franchise or genre after 30 years? How do you update a classic while staying true to the original? Industry veterans share their stories of revisiting their roots, taking up their heroes’ mantles, and what they’ve learned in the intervening years.” We will also be available for interviews, discussing not just previously launched games such as Gabriel Knight Sins of the Fathers - 20th Anniversary Edition and Quest for Infamy, but also new, unannounced projects.Time slots are available throughout the show weekend. If you’d like to schedule an appointment, you can reserve time here. If you’re going to this year’s PAX East, be sure to stop by and check out our upcoming games!Gonçalo GonçalvesSocial Media AssociatePhoenix Online Studios
