Cognition & Moebius Linux Ports Started As Developer Updates Unity

By - | Views: 5,318
Cognition & Moebius are two games from Phoenix Online Studios that are due to get their Linux versions.

A developer confirmed on their Steam forum that they have updated their version of Unity, and so work can begin on the Linux ports:
QuoteWell, I can tell you that we've updated the Unity engine and we've started working on Linux ports of Cognition and Moebius.

About Cognition
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.

Jump into Cognition: An Erica Reed Thriller, the exciting four-part series that brings Erica face to face with the deranged demons of her past. 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?

Winner of six 2013 Reader’s Choice Aggie Awards, including Game of the Year, this edition of Cognition includes everything in the original game, plus brand new director commentary for all 4 episodes and exclusive content including concept art, storyboards, outtakes and other behind-the-scenes material about the development!

Developed by Phoenix Online Studios (makers of the King’s Quest spin-off The Silver Lining), with contributions from veteran game designer Jane Jensen (Gabriel Knight, Gray Matter) and comic book artist Romano Molenaar (Batman, X-Men, The Darkness), Cognition is a thrilling adventure that grips you and won’t let go.

About Moebius
This thrilling new adventure game from master storyteller Jane Jensen (Gabriel Knight, Gray Matter) and Phoenix Online Studios (Cognition, The Silver Lining) introduces Malachi Rector, an expert in antiquities whose photographic memory and eye for detail transform people and clues into interactive puzzles.

When a secretive government agency enlists him to determine whether a murdered woman in Venice resembles any particular historical figure, Malachi is left with only questions. Why would the U.S. government hire him -- a dealer of high-end antiques -- to look into a foreign murder? Why does David Walker, a former Special Forces operative he meets in his travels, feel like someone Malachi’s known all his life? And how come every time Malachi lets his guard down, someone tries to kill him?

Are these "point & click" adventure games? I hate those descriptions/trailers that don’t tell what the games are.

The blocker at the moment is their video player, from what I've heard. I hope they don't end up waiting for months for third-party middleware to get ported, like the developer of Tesla Effect.

Cognition definitely looks interesting. I was always hoping for a Linux version. Maybe that'll become true soon.

I loved "Cognition" and I was quite satisfied with "Moebius", in the case of the latter game there were flaws & weaker parts but the story was great and left me very much desiring a sequel since the story-concept left so much unexplored potential.

"Cognition" looks fantastic, and I'm usually up for a good adventure game. Good news.

Yes, real "point & click" adventures, as opposed to action adventures (or text adventures ;) )

In theory I like those, but in practice I have many adventure games still waiting in my library… So I probably shouldn’t buy them.
