Reverb Publishing announced some preorder deals for their upcoming titles.
In Cognition: An Erica Reed Thriller, players go along with the titular character to uncover mysteries in a point and click adventure. This episodic tale will be made in collaboration with Jane Jensen, known for her work on Gabriel Knight and her recent Kickstarter success for Pinkerton Road. She’ll be a Story Consultant shaping the plot of this title. Another neat feature is that puzzles have several solutions and branch off in different paths in the story’s continuation.
People that preorder the series now can do so at a slight discount of $24.99, instead of the $29.99 post-release. This order will grant access to a prequel comic, made with a smudging art style, but also a full soundtrack for the first episode with a ton of songs. Each episode will later on be available for $9.99 each, making a bundle purchase more affordable. A preorder trailer has been released, revealing the cel-shaded art as well as the premise for the game. Erica is an investigator with dark visions.
That other game Reverb is working on, Edge of Space, is now taking preorders as well. For $9.99, gamers can get their hands on the Beta prior to release and start exploring the vast ends of the galaxy. There’s even mention of laser sharks, intergalactic polar bears and pets. Also, cooperative mode offers unique weapons that work better when used with a partner. It’s in essence a boosted version of Terraria, which in turn is the 2D Minecraft, if you’ll pardon the six degrees of separation.
Edge of Space, or rather the PR segment of Reverb Publishing, recently got caught in a media faux pas, when it insinuated it would donate to charity only if the game made it through Steam Greenlight. This was perceived by press as blackmailing or even cruel intent towards the animals that this charitable organization supported. Reverb has since gone on record, according to Eurogamer, that it intended to donate the money all along and was trying to make a lighthearted joke. As people who regularly speak with these PR folks, we can at least attest that they’re usually friendly and open. They also support a game called “Hairy Balls” that always ends up in our spam folder, due to its name. We’ll just drop the trailer for that iOs title, so you can see how serious you should take them.
