Om detta spel

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.

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 liked this game. I really did, which is a rare occasion for me in this genre.

I'm the kind of person who usually buys huge batches of cheap new indies and revamps of old adventure games, starts point-and-clickers excited but leaves them even before half-way, bored of the theme, disillusioned by the lack of immersion, redundant puzzles and all. Somehow it all gets diluted into a non-engaging mess. But this was not the case with Primordia; I played it through twice, once genuinely without any help, and then second time with a walkthrough / achievement guide to see what I had missed.

I loved the dystopian atmosphere. The writing was excellent, as well as the characters. The graphics were surprisingly fitting - somehow the artists filled just the right amount of atmospheric detail in "cinematics", and the gameplay was fluent enough. Puzzles did involve every once in a while some actual thinking and not just random inventory combo-womboing, and once I even took pen and paper to solve a key puzzle. I must commend that the narration for Horatio, Crispin, as well some other key characters (without spoilers) were excellently done, which played a huge part on why the game was so immersive for me.

On the down-side, some of the puzzles were kinda redundant pixel searching, as one might expect. Luckily the hint system was just on the correct level for a guy like me, who doesn't like hunting for pixels for eternities, and might dismiss an "obvious" clue every here and then. I never felt stuck, and I always had a sense of progression in my first playthrough. Without spoiling too much, there isn't that much of difference in the endings or how your choices end up as consequences, but second playthrough (with a walkthrough) did reveal more of the lore and modest alternatives that I had missed. I must also admit that dystopia/sci-fi as a genre is probably my favorite (1984, Brave New World, Neuromancer, you name it), so I am biased to liking this game.

Overall, I can highly recommend this excellent adventure-novel to anybody that can overcome the barrier of point-and-click, and instead enjoy a ride of well fitting retro graphics, excellent narrative, good writing, and a neatly packaged ~4-6h adventure in a single playthrough - all for a very modest price. I'll fly one day, and Crispin will be laughing at me.

If you are looking for a Point and Click as enjoyable and memorable as the classics from Lucasarts then you've found it. A brilliant and engaging game with a great story and deep characterisation and development. Throughly recommend it.

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.

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 flat a bit flat and the puzzles are amusing. Very much enjoyed my time exploring this little world

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

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!

This game is beauty incarnate. It uses the point-and-click adventure format masterfully, and delivers an incredible experience. Unlike some other games (Blackwell Epiphany, cough-cough xD), you always feel like you have agency, and the number of alternate endings only add to this feel. The puzzles are fair, and the world vast and interesting.

As someone who grew up on Lem's Cyberiad, for me, robots inhabiting a post-mankind world was a must buy... but what really managed to awe me was how incredibly well they were executed. No throw-away characters and no bad cliches in this game.

If you like Asimov or Lem, robots, and adventure games, get this. It's one of the top titles of the genre at the moment, surpassing even many of the big old titles by LucasArts in the golden days.

One of the most engrossing, masterfully crafted worlds I have seen in a video game. The narrative is incredible, the art and atmosphere fit the tone of the world incredibly well, and the characters have very distinct personalities, aided by some very well directed voice acting. If you are a fan of point and click adventure titles, than you absolutely MUST pick up this game.

An absolutely lovely piece. Along with the finely crafted graphics and cut-scenes, I loved the voice-over and the music. It is a game of self-exploration and finding a meaning to existence when your god is dead. There are alternative endings, which are intriguing, and there are more than one way to skin a cat for many puzzles. Choices feel real, however, you are not the only agent acting on the scene.

This is a great post-apocalyptic point and click game with tons of puzzles that require your attention at all time. The story is interesting and the world is full of hidden easter eggs and clever refferences from everyday life.

At the end I found 7 different possible endings. Some of the endings had 2-3 variations. (The cutscenes were the same but the monologue and dialogue changed depending on what you did during the game.) There might be more however.

The game took me 10 hours but I spend alot of time just wandering around.

Over all I recommend it. Wish there was Primordia 2.

Great, great point & click. Excellent dialogues, music, atmosphere in general. More possibilities & intrigues than pixels. But hey, isn't that what really matters when you want to remember a game?

The closest I've seen a video game come to art in the conventional sense of the word.
Buy it if you're into intellectually immersive experiences with an emphasis on story, art and atmosphere.

An exceptionally well crafted adventure game with difficult puzzles and a beautifully written story. I had thought that the intrigue and mystery of playing games like Beneath a Steel Sky and Monkey Island was lost to the dumbed down 'puzzle' games of the console era - Primordia proves that this isn't so, and I am so very grateful.

My god. You want to talk about fun and story-driven gameplay? This thing comes close to a masterpiece. 9/10. Details below.

Set in an extreme post-apocolyptia, our hero attempts to recover a power source he desperatly needs, stolen from him by a hulking robot. As his simple quest progresses, he finds himself drawn into the day-to-day conflicts of many men and women bots, deepening the story and lore of the world naturally. On the way you, the player, solve simple yet satisying point-and-click puzzles with elegent conectivity and solutions. The vast majority of the puzzles feel very natural, not forcibly integrated with the environment. The few esoteric ones can be figured out by paying careful attention to the dialogue of NPC bots. As you travel from your humble abode across vast wastes, to a sprawling, decrepit city, you meet incredibly interesting characters. The amount of work that went into the art design is astounding, and reflects well on the amount of work that went into the writing. The story is driven by dialogue rather than the environment, though all the scenes are breathtaking. I will say Crispin's playful banter leaves something to be desired and feels off-key, coming as it is in such a bleak game. But the story and gameplay merge so seemlessly you can forgive it. An incredible game with replay value and amazing choice endings. Highly reccomended.

I don't usually leave game reviews, but Primodia really wowed me. It's a hauntingly beautiful game and the story is compelling. The whole concept of the universe Primordia is set in adds an intrigue to the whole thing. As a point and click game it is extremely successful. The puzzles and problems can be difficult and you may get really stuck on a few parts; this never stopped me from wanting to complete the game though. Upon completion of Primordia I felt as if I'd read a really good book that made me think and want more. The game is interesting and mystery-filled, and I fully recommend it.

Mainly I play RPGs, but I heard about this title so many good things that I bought it. And I wasn't disappointed. Story is great, voiceover is brilliant, your actions can change ending(s), graphics are very atmospheric, characters are charismatic.
Game isn't very long - but I think longer will be for worse in that case. As it - length is ideal.

Definetly can be recommended to anyone with taste for good story.
