Sobre este jogo

What Happened to the Humans?

Set in a post-apocalyptic world strewn with cast-off machines, Primordia tells the story of Horatio Nullbuilt, a stoic robot who values his solitude and independence. Horatio spends his days studying the Book of Man, sparring with his droid companion Crispin, and tinkering with the airship they call home — a peaceful existence that becomes threatened when a rogue robot steals the energy source that the pair needs to survive.


When Horatio and Crispin’s search for energy brings them to the dazzling city of Metropol, the simple quest to recover their stolen power core leads to unexpected discoveries about Horatio’s origins and a new understanding of the legendary humans who walked the earth before him.

I bought this game for $2 or something when it was on sale a long time ago, and finally got around to playing it.

First of all: I don't typically enjoy point-and-click games. I haven't played very many of them, and I usually get frustrated with the puzzles and either look up a guide (which kind of defeats the point) or quit.

I LOVED Primordia. Maybe it scratched the right itch at the right time, but I enjoyed every second of this game. The puzzles are challenging, but not frustrating (the only times that I had to look something up were just because I didn't realize I could scroll down on my data pack, for example, or that I could interact with an object in a certain way. For everything else, Crispin's hints were more than enough). It's gorgeous and thought-provoking. The voice acting was excellent and really brought all of the characters to life. The world is endlessly interesting. Looking at the achievements after my first playthrough, it also seems that there is a great deal to discover that I missed my first time around, which is good, because in my desire to experience more of this world I will probably play through it at least one more time.

A lot of reviews have commented on it feeling a bit short, and I'm tempted to agree. The second half of the game in particular feels a bit rushed, but it seems to have more to do with there being lots of questions to answer, and they all get answered in a shotgun blast at once that seems to detract from the feeling of discovery that permiates the rest of the game. However, if the only bad thing I have to say about a game is "I wanted more..." is it really a bad thing after all?

Primordia is very literary. It's a game about the preservation of individuality within an increasingly communist society. It's about one's "design," and whether or not it's possible to act against it. It's about friendship, religion, creation, preservation, degeneration, and hope.

Do yourself a favor and play this game.

Primordia is excellent. It's an engrossing and original story with consequences to your choices, which I really enjoy in a game. If you like science fiction and point & click adventures, you should definitely play it.

Great visuals, music, story and puzzles. I like how you can click on Crispin for helpful hints, because although I love these kind of puzzle games sometimes I do get stuck and have to look it up, which I think feels horrible. The game is tricky, but with a notepad and pen you can figure it out! Overall amazing game.

I judge puzzle adventure games by a single rule:

Every puzzle in the game must be solvable within the game's own universe without requiring more than a grasp of English. No trips to Google to check bible passages or pop culture references.

And that's it. That's why Primordia's difficulty is well-earned and satisfying to figure out on your own. That's all I need to know about a point-n-click, and that's what you should need as well (but okay fine, the writing is also absolutely hilarious and full of personality).

Great music, nice artwork but silly puzzles and subpar gameplay

Updated:

It is really annoying that there are only good/bad binary ratings available on Steam, binary ratings make no sense whatsoever. I would still not 'recommend' the game but at the same time don't think it is a 'bad' game so changed the rating to 'yes'. It has amazing music and nice artwork but puzzles not on the same level, very 20 years ago-ish and not in a good sense, they feel quite tedious

One of the best Wadjet Eye games in my opinion. A proper point and click adventure with an inventory system and a witty sidekick. A beautifully dingy, dystopian world and a soundtrack to match. A few tricky puzzles in this one and a sincerely interesting, albeit rather short story.

Great game. Nice visuals, great music and an overall immersive feel. The characters are all well thought out and the storyline is engaging. The only problem? Way too short. I didn't use any walkthroughs and I got through it all in around 10 hours. The ending caught me by surprise simply because I didn't think I was even half way through which was a little disappointing. Overall still a very engaging experience, I just wanted MORE!

Harken's back to the point and click adventure days of LucasArts and Sierra that were popular through the 1990s. If you love the retro look and gameplay, you'll certainly love Primordia....a mix of dystopian, steampunk, cyberpunk, and robots.

Had some problems with getting the mouse to function (at all) on my windows 10 rig but the Dev's are really nice and encouraging and was able to find a solution. For anyone interested in order to get the game to run I simply had to alter the properties on Primordia.exe - under the compatibility tab tick the boxes 'reduced colour mode' (16bit), 'run in 640x480' and 'run as administrator'. After doing that the game runs fine.

So the game itself

An old school style point and click adventure with some very interesting charcters, settings and concepts. The dialogue is quite well written even if the jokes do on occasion fall a bit flat. Very much enjoyed my time exploring this little world and trying to figure out the puzzles.

Its only downfall in my opinion is that it seemed rather short - given the setting and the plot setup I was expecting more content but what is here is still very good.

8/10 - best of the genre I have played in a long time

Another gem in the sea of retro styled games, the soundtrack is great, the characters are great. And among other things it has around 4 endings!

★★★★☆

Everything is spot on here: Story, voice acting, score and graphics.
The best thing for me: the puzzles are logical so far.
I always expect this of "point&clicks" and often get very disappointed early on.

Make sure to run "winsetup.exe" in your local game content folder
to setup the graphics and other options before you run the game.

I won't go into too much detail because I played this game years ago, but I recently saw it in my library and thought it deserved a review. There are few negative things to say so I'll start there.

CONS
Starting with the only downsides I can think of, it was bothersome finding the right settings so the game would scale perfectly and look sharp on an HD display, but it worked fine once that was taken care of.
Gameplay is somewhat akin to classic point and click with character displacement handled like any old 2D RPG, but it sometimes isn't clear which items are to be interacted with, or even whether it is possible. This was sometimes annoying but can be considered inherent to the game genre.
It's too short. Don't get me wrong, the length of the game is appropriate but the mood and story are so enticing by the end you'll definitely be left wanting more.

PROS
The art. I'll come out with a bit of an unpopular opinion by saying gameplay is not a good reason to buy this game. Its geatest asset is without a question the art. Not only is the style 100% distinctive from anything I've seen before, the devs actually pulled it off perfectly. While it resembles moody postapocalyptic or cyberpunk art commonly seen in high-res online, the low pixel count makes it particularly impressive. Combining intricate convoluted shapes with pixel-art is just something I didn't think was possible until playing Primordia. The dark and brown color tones used and occasional neon accents really set the atmosphere as a surrealist cyberpunk universe. I can't stress enough there is nothing else like this.
On top of the visual aspects, the soundtrack is just great. Maybe I wouldn't listen to the ambient sounds on their own but they really do a great job of accenting both the story and environment.
Last comes the story. Oh boy. Not only was I surprised at every turn by a creative plot, but the character development is the cherry on the cake. Whoever wrote the story really knows how to blend humor, mystery, and tragedy in a story that never left me bored (except when I got stuck desperately looking for some object to interact with).

I won't oversimplify by rating this game with a number, but I'll say this:
Since I was about eight years old not a single day has gone by without me reading a novel. I have watched thousands of movies, played literally hudreds of games, and amidst all the classics, the worldwide hits, the big budget productions, all the various forms of entertainment, this comes out easily as one of the favorite stories of my lifetime. If you can sit through a few tedious puzzles and don't mind spending half an hour looking for items in a pile of trash, then I recommend this game wholeheartedly. Hell, even if you hate the gameplay it's affordable enough that you can buy it just to appreciate the art and ambience.

Primordia's robot driven post-apocalyptic setting is a great twist on your standard post-war stories. Even though the characters in the game are robots they retain many human properties that makes them quite relatable. To add to this, their human traits are merged with some very interesting quirks based on what purposes they were coded for. This makes almost every character you meet really interesting and memorable, and also drives a lot humor in the game. In particular, the bond between the playable character Horatio and his creation and best friend Crispin is consistently entertaining thoughtout the whole game. It's not just the setting that's great though, the writing and story in general is fantastic, and the voice acting is amazing.

The gameplay draws really well from the setting too. Scavenging for spare parts and pieceing machines together might feel pretty familiar to anyone who has played an adventure game before, but because of the setting and design of the game all of this feels really organic and fluid. It helps that there are core items in the game aren't simply used once and then thrown away, but instead you are gathering an array of tools (Your friend Crispin being one of them!) that you will keep reusing throughout the whole game. There is still the odd puzzle that had solutions I wouldn't have thought of and got me turning to a guide, but I would put this down to my own impatience rather than design faults of the game. I never really took the time to think things out completely as I was too compelled to move forward with the story!

Long story short, I would strongly recommend this game. The only negative thing I can think of is that I had a couple of very minor technical issues that were resolved easily. If you have any interest in point-and-click adventures or story-driven games in general I wouldn't hesitate to pick this one up.
