Conclusion: If you were to strip away everything but the puzzles and interface, Primordia would be a very good adventure game. The puzzles are creative and challenging without being nonsensical, the hint system is effective without being obvious, and the user interface is simple and functional.
Summary: If you are naturally bubbly, lively and generally like the fast life, don’t bother playing Primordia. It is a point and click game set in a world where mankind is nothing more than history, myth and an object of worship.
Excerpt: I am excited about the resurgence of the Point and Click adventure genre.Â The genre seemed to have died off at the end of the 1990’s and was apparently no longer relevant in PC gaming, but thanks to a strong catalog of games and several studious, both big company and independent, this has allowed...
Conclusion: Primordia is a game not to be missed by any adventure games fans. In fact, this is a must buy for all players that do not necessarily hate this genre. I’ve had an enthralling experience with Primordia and cherished every moment of it.
Pros: - Unique artwork, - Truly exceptional post-apocalyptic atmosphere, - Great voice acting, - Original, epic story
Excerpt: Wadjet Eye’s upcoming point-and-click adventure game, Primordia, follows the adventures of Horatio Nullbuilt version 5, a monk-like robo-hermit living in the desert wastes. It’s a harsh life, but he resists the temptation of moving to Metropol, a city of glass and light where power flows freely to...
Summary: Primordia is a solid adventure with great writing, production values, and gameplay. It’s one of the best adventures I’ve played to date, even better than Wadjet Eye’s Blackwell series. Which is saying a lot because I absolutely adore the Blackwell games.
Conclusion: Only a few clunky systems, a couple of irritating puzzles, and a brief playing time let the game down, and none should put you off buying. Between this and Machinarium it seems post-apocalyptic adventures in robot civilisations are a safe bet for excellent puzzling.
Conclusion: None of this is a knock on what Wormwood Studios has achieved, however, as every part of the game screams of the passion and talent of its developers. Like other indie designers Wadjet Eye has taken under wing, this team has proven itself a studio to watch.
