With multiple serial killers still stalking innocent victims, there's no time to waste for Erica Reed, so Phoenix Online is sending her right back into harm's way next month with the second episode of Cognition.
The new installment is named after The Wise Monkey, a murderer who gruesomely mutilates his (or her) victims. The Wise Monkey has kidnapped a friend of Erica's, leaving the Boston FBI agent "in a race against time to save his life. With the Wise Monkey case in her hands and the FBI's resources already stretched thin, she's on her own to find the killer before it’s too late - again."
The Wise Monkey is scheduled for release on PC and Mac on January 30th, and like its predecessor will be available for purchase either as a single episode or full season (discounted) pass from download portals such as GamersGate, GameStop, and Rain Digital Games. If you'd like to see the game released on Steam, you can vote for it through the Greenlight program. There's good news for mobile gamers as well, as Episode 1: Hangman is also due to launch in January on iOS platforms.
