  • Summary: If this game had been released in 1990, which is the period that its graphics, gameplay and story intentionally harp back to, it might well have changed the course of adventure gaming's evolution. It has all the nostalgia of going back to the Lucasarts and Sierra golden age. (but the game it reminded me of most is actually an immensely obscure Atari ST point-and-click game called "The If this game had been released in 1990, which is the period that its graphics, gameplay...

  • Summary: It's a pretty sight watching the point and click adventure genre being restored in it's former glory, and although not every attempt is as succesful Primordia has truely nailed it. The story is solid, the dialogues are both intelligent and witty and never feel enforced. Horatio and Crispin are the best voiced 2D adventure couple since Sam and Max hit the road and there are plenty of lines It's a pretty sight watching the point and click adventure genre being restored in...

  • Summary: The atmosphere in the game is fantastic. You have this rusting and decaying world in the colours of rusting metals and flickering lights here and there. Exactly what I expected from the teaser images I saw before purchasing the game. The purposefully crude graphics are wonderful and I fell in love with them even though I usually prefer HD graphics in games. I also liked the voice acting The atmosphere in the game is fantastic.

  • Summary: Nice game, great atmosphere, awesome retro charm, memorable characters, good storyline. I felt all the soul put by developers into the game. Also I loved the references to my both all-time favorite games - Fallout (the whole post-apocalyptic setting and Easter Eggs about water chip and G.E.C.K.) and Planescape Torment (Horatio and Crispin are like the Nameless One and Morte, besides Nice game, great atmosphere, awesome retro charm, memorable characters, good storyline.

  • Summary: Putting the "adventure" back into adventure games! One of the best adventure games in recent memory! The gameplay is akin to classic adventure games and as such is nothing you haven't seen (gather items/try them on everything that you see), however the atmosphere is also akin to classic adventure games and that's something I've been missing dearly as of late. Please note that the game Putting the "adventure" back into adventure games!

  • Summary: This review contains spoilers, click expand to view. I don't play a ton of point-and-click adventure games, but I saw a couple videos of the game last Thursday and decided that I should check it out. After spending a good chunk of Friday, Saturday, and Sunday playing Primordia, I'm glad I picked it up. Primordia is fascinating for its environment, despite the fact that war-borne post-apocalyptic wastes are not new territory for video games.

  • Summary: Highly recommended! I am not a great adventure game player and tested the game, because the world seems interesting to me. A great game with an excellent Atmosphere and great artwork. The puzzles are easy till hard. Music is very atmospheric. The price is good. You play more than 10 hours.

  • Summary: Modern adventure games can often end up feeling low budget in one place or another, but this one feels like it was made by a lot more than the handful of people who worked on it (not including voice-acting in that count). It's a solid game where the puzzles feel logical and necessary as opposed to just setting up roadblocks to your progress.

  • Summary: Highly recommended, the great artwork and logical puzzles work together to make a truly memorable experience. The dynamic between Horatio and Crispin is a lot like the friendship between Overmann and Joey from Beneath a Steel Sky, but with their own interesting personalities and quirks. And any game with Logan Cunningham voicing the main character is worth playing.

  • Summary: Absolutely recommended! They managed to create an interesting world supported by a solid story and great cast, if you're into old-school point&click adventure games, this one is definitely worth your time! The length isn't that bad either, it took me a little over 8 hours to finish it according to steam.
