Cognition: An Erica Reed Thriller has snuck its way into the top 70 games currently featured on Steam Greenlight. Whether it’ll be promoted or not is up to you…
The next batch of games to be added to the legions of titles already offered by Steam will be made known on October 15th. Basically, for a game to have a chance, it has to be voted into the top 10 by the Steam faithful by that date.
Win and in, lose and… well you don’t need intuitive powers to figure that one out. Speaking of ‘intuitive powers’ though, they’re something Erica Reed (the main character of Cognition) has in spades. And this supernatural graphic adventure has something else in spades too- pedigree.

Co-created by Jane Jensen of Gabriel Knight fame, Phoenix Online Studios has put an impressive team together including comic book artist Romano Molenaar to lend his pencils to all the hand done art in the game. All in all, Cognition is looking like it might be something special.
