A downbeat trod through a world where robots scramble to survive amongst the ruins of decaying, forgotten human world. Primordia has all the charm, class and witt of old point-and-click games and none of their problems and is a delightful story in a game that doesn't hold your hand. All in all, a short point-and-click adventure game with puzzle elements and some philosophical nods.
* Some very cool little puzzles add a little bit of depth and side objective. One puzzle, for example, has you exploring an encyclopaedia style database of information via an information kiosk to try and unlock information pertaining to the current objective, and is a nice side-step distraction
* Incredibly good game design, nothing is over or under designed and it takes all the good elements of old point-and-click games and none of the problems
* Fantastic sound assets, voice acting and soundtrack
Finding mistakes and problems with this game is difficult, though there are some minor and non specific design mistakes.
* It can be finicky trying to find solutions to progress at times which can impact the pace of the story
* The graphics are arguably too low-res or dark. For me, that adds to the appeal
Primordia is listed at £6.99/9,99€/$9.99 which is fair for it's 6 hour+ story. There's also a short demo available for free
GOG offers a copy of the soundtrack, a MAC version and some other small extras at a cheaper price and may be a better choice for some.
* There are a number of interesting cutscenes and small story elements to discover, most of which are married with Achievements
* Everyone who enjoys Primordia should take a few minutes to check out Wormwood Studios' other IP which includes 3 games; Like a Raisin in the Sun, Salt and Beacon, and a number of short stories, all of which are available for free from Wormwood Studios, hosted on The Escapist
* Primordia has several possible endingshttp://store.steampowered.com/app/227000
