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.

TL:DR? See Conclusion

INTRODUCTION:
Primordia is a point-and-click adventure game developed by Wormwood Studios and made available on Steam through the Greenlight system. It features a fully voice-acted cast with a retro graphical art style that pays homage to the classical age of gaming.

The story of Primordia takes place in a post-apocalyptic future where machines have taken over the world after the human race fought itself into extinction. You follow the adventures of a self-aware android named Horatio Nullbuilt and his companion Crispin Horatiobuilt both residing inside a crashed ship called 'The UNNIIC'. When a mysterious and powerful robot steals their power source, both Horatio and Crispin embark on a quest to seek out a new power source which eventually leads them to the mechanical city of Metropol.

PROS:
+ Good Retro Art Style
+ Great character writing and developments
+ Good story with an interesting back-story
+ Atmospheric environment and world design
+ Consequence-based choices that can affect the final outcome of the story
+ Fully voice-acted characters
+ Healthy game time of at least 6-8 hours depending on how quickly the player solves the puzzles
+ Steam cloud support

CONS:
- No 'HD' or Widescreen Support, in which the game opts instead for a pitiful 320x200 resolution which, frankly speaking, makes my eyes hurt.
- The game has a fetish for the color brown
- Puzzles are sometimes irritatingly difficult
- Does not expand much on the back-story which, in my opinion, is far more interesting than the main story
- The game's humor is a hit and miss

CONCLUSION:
GREAT POINT-AND-CLICK EXPERIENCE. I Green-lit this game when it showed up in my Queue because I was very interested in its concept, setting, and back-story, and once it was released I purchased it and found a fun and absorbing point-and-click game with homage to the classical style of the genre.

Despite the resolution locked in a low 320x200 with an excessive use of brown that is stressful to the eyes, the art design is still pretty good which shows in the character and environment designs. The puzzles can seriously be irritatingly difficult but satisfying to complete with some puzzles directly affecting the game's ending.

Overall, Primordia is a great point-and-click adventure game that provides at least 6-8 hours’ worth of game time. In addition, for only $10 (or your regional equivalent), it is definitely worth a look especially if you are a fan of the genre.

Great story, post-apocalyptic setting.

Humanity mysteriously vanished. Only robots remain.

You as ''Horatio'' and your friend ''Crispin'' wander around the wastes and the new city to unravel what it hides.

It's a classical adventure game. One of the best ones I ever played and a pleasant surprise to see it have so much content and replay value, albeit some repetitivness in the level design by the end of the game, as you mainly have to run around in circles for some puzzles.
You do have your friend who can offer you hints, but some of them are vague which is a slight issue compared to the general narrative message.

Play this if 90's "Point & Clicks" are your passion.
A big thank you to the developers for the ambient soundtrack and to "The Vintage Feeling" for generously gifting this game to me.

A fun point & click adventure developed by Wormwood Studios. This is their only commercial release to date but they did do two games for Indie Speed Run 2013 called Like a Raisin in the Sun and Salt. It takes place in a post-apocalyptic world where all the humans are gone and you play a robot named Horatio Nullbuilt. You have a broken down ship that you live in and another robot breaks in shoots you and steals your power core. Now you are on a mission to get it back.

Gameplay:
It plays just like a typical point & click adventure game. Finding objects to use and figure out puzzles to progress further in the game. Puzzles were a little challenging for me but were fun to figure out. They require some logic and can have multiple ways to figure them out. Choices you make in the game can change things later in the game. If you’ve played other adventure games then you’ll have no trouble playing this.

Story:
It kept me interested and curious to dig deeper. It all starts out over a power core but there’s a deeper secret you can uncover if you make the right choices in the game. Great supporting cast which brought some comedy to the game. I really enjoyed the banter from Crispin your little sidekick throughout the game. There’s also seven different endings to the story if you care to see them all.

Visuals & Sound:
It has retro style graphics with some great looking hand drawn rooms. They did a great job of showing you a dark and grim world. An easy to use interface, and great voice acting. You can also change it to text only if you are one who just wants to read it all.

Overall:
Primordia was a fun and enjoyable game. The story was a little slow in the beginning but picks up a little ways in. I laughed at times and even felt a little sad at times. It’s well worth playing if you enjoy point & click adventure games or a good story and it won’t take you to long to beat.

I purchased Primordia during the 2014 winter sale on Steam. So, I spent an approximate total of three dollars on this game. Knowing what I know now I would buy this game at full price. Now, I know it looks like an older game, I envision this being playable on an older system, such as the original Playstation, but the graphics are a part of the feel, part of that grainy worn out look and environment. The story back drop is extremely enticing and will make you want to do some playable digging to find out more about the story and the characters. The puzzles are not as easy as they look and decision making trees offer differing outcomes to the story. As an added plus you get to know and love these characters and in some small way emotionally invest in them within a relatively short time. You’ll laugh at their jokes, good and bad, and you’ll care whether or not they succeed in their endeavors. Overall Primordia offers a very, very good post apocalyptic science fiction experience in a point/click format. Totally worth checking out!!

Amazing game,

Haven't played point & click adventures in years, and it was such a refreshing experience - some subtle improvements like auto note-taking and instant travel instead of endless walking back and forth.. but the game really shines in it's writing and mood, set by lovely hand-drawn graphics.

Taking place in a not so distant future, you play a robot trying to recover a power core that was taken from you. I think my only real gripe with the game was that it was just a bit too short but you should definateley give it a try, experience the world created, and talk with some unique characters.
