Primordia, a point and click adventure game that has quite good story with challenging puzzles. More or less like The Cat Lady... the good and the bad. To sum it up:
- Great/Mature story
- Multiple endings
- Challenging puzzles... to the point I required help from walkthrough *ahem*
- Funny dialogues
- Great voice actors
- Decent price point
- Weak graphic engine, seriously. I even had a Developer helped me to get the game up and running.
- Art isn't up to my standard.
- A bit short game (approx 5 hours), but for 2.5 USD when discounted/on sale (or bundled), well... I guess can't be helped.
The gameplay is just another point and click adventure. You pick up one object, deliver it to one character, get another item to unlock another area... rinse and repeat. You also are required to pay attention to hints collected. Not so much new invention in this aspect.
Story, well, I can't say much without spoiling anything, but the story is interesting enough. In fact, I wouldn't have completed the game had the story been bad. It's like, again, The Cat Lady - light story in the beginning and developing slowly until the finale.
Soundtrack is so-so, not that good but not that bad. Voice actors, however, are top notch. They really portray the characters well. Oh yes, don't forget about hilarious exchanges between Horatio and Chrispin throughout the game. More often than not I laughed on many occasions thanks to that funny Chrispin.
Overall, Wormwood Studios, I think, have a success creating a good game for us all. Moreover, they are willing to interact and listen to their playerbase as well: see here
. I wish them luck with their future projects, too bad it won't be Primordia 2 (as has been said by the Developer himself).
