Is there a reason that the Demo is only for Europe? I am blocked from downloading it…..or maybe they just don’t like me. lol

If you’re on the link on the Cognition page, click the image that talks about the demo, or just go to the Rain page to download it directly: http://raindg.com/title/cognition/

The link below that is specifically for Europe because those folks won’t be able to access Rain.

As for what percentage, hmm…well, the demo takes about 30 minutes, and we estimate the whole Episode to take 6-8 hours. So I’d say it’s about 10%.

Thanks Zane but the only link above the European Demo is the Video Trailer not a Demo of the game as it states. Unless they think that a Trailer is a Demo. I thought they were referring to a Demo of actually playing the game so a player can see if they want to purchase the full pass or not. Trouble with these episodic games is they don’t have a very good track record for finishing all the episodes.

Hi GreyFuss: scroll down at the link in question (http://raindg.com/title/cognition/) and you’ll see the banner button for downloading the demo there, under the video player.

And we’ll absolutely be finishing all episodes of this game! Smile

wow. Yep i got through the demo in about 40 minutes. Count me in as intrigued.
positives:
*good music
*nice art feel
*an all-around strong atmosphere
*good voice acting
*the cognition mechanic “fits”, and its a mechanic worth building a game around

negatives:
*some animations were a little shaky or slow (having to watch erica move slowly across the graveyard after clicking to interact with statue)
*some moments felt a biiit too drawn out (like the wheel on the door)

I’d say it gets a thumbs up from me. Can’t wait to see what its like with more exploration.

Thanks KatieHal

I see it now…it was off the screen and the video Trailer was playing. Thanks for clearing that up for me. As for “And we’ll absolutely be finishing all episodes of this game!”  I hope so but that is what they all say (no disrespect)

Hey guys,

Thank you for the demo feedback so far! We think we have something really special in this game, and we hope that you can enjoy it very soon!

Regarding the following episodes, we have Episode 2 about 60% complete at this point, and Episode 3 is being voiced recorded at the moment, with about 30% done. Episode 4 currently lives in an outline of the game Smile We also have the budget to finish the game. So, we are pretty confident that we’ll see all 4 episodes through.

Great Demo, but how much bug killing will be done before release? I’ve experience no gameplay bugs, but visually a bunch of animation ones.

Anyone else listened to the soundtrack?

It’s amazing stuff.

For reference as a possible bug, the demo froze for me when Erica is digging with the shovel in the back of the mausoleum, it cuts to a seeming cognition scene and just freezes there, and it does it every time.  I have a really old computer(circa 2004) so it’s quite possible that the problem is just my comp, but it had been running fine up to that point so figured I’d report it just in case.  The soundtrack is quite good from what I’ve heard of it thus far.

My guess would be that’s an issue of your computer perhaps not meeting the minimum requirements. What graphics setting did you run the demo on? (Fastest, Simple, Good, etc)
