What the developers have to say:

Why Early Access?

“The world of Primordian is almost complete, but an essential missing element is the fantastic ideas and thoughts of the VR community. For this reason, early access is a great way to start by presenting the first version of the single player story. The single player story will released in parts, the final levels and secret side levels will be added during early access. Part One of the Story is the first available section, Part Two and Three will be included also during early access over time.”

Approximately how long will this game be in Early Access?

“The game will be in Early Access for roughly 6 to 8 months to fix any issues, add additional polish, as well as work any feedback, ideas and final levels into the single player story mode for Part One. Part Two and Three of the story will also be added. There will be two or more additional game modes added and worked on during this time. "Arcade Mode", a faster paced series of levels and "Endless Jungle" a more relaxing journey through a large jungle area.”

How is the full version planned to differ from the Early Access version?

“Once complete, the only difference in the final version of the game will be some additional game modes that will provide other styles and ways of experiencing the world. There will also be many new levels added.”

What is the current state of the Early Access version?

“This first version contains the close to complete Part One of the Story, with most weapons and characters, however some additional enemy types and boss characters will be added during early access. Some final levels and additional cinematic scenes will also be added. Part Two and Three of the Story will also be added over time as free updates during early access.”

Will the game be priced differently during and after Early Access?

“The game will remain the same price during and after early access, with the exception of sale prices.”

How are you planning on involving the Community in your development process?

“The main reason for choosing early access is to involve the community in all things. From feedback, ideas, issues, suggestions etc. It is the hope that through early access, the game can evolve into a VR experience that has something for everyone. Looking forward to hearing from everyone on the community page.”

The Evolving Game



TLDR Version - After total engine update, Primordian is being rebuilt from the ground up to be better, stronger, and faster before the final release.

Lots of news regarding plans for the final version of Primordian.

After recently completing all levels for the entire game, Parts 1, 2 and 3 to bring it to a complete state and plan for the major update (not released yet).
Then playing through many times with wishlist notes and many pages of feedback from the excellent thoughts on the forum and reviews so far from everyone playing in mind.
I was more than excited to be close to a final version.



However *dramatic music here*
It became very apparent that since the game started development almost 3 years ago, elements of the game engine needed major updates to achieve all the final goals and speed up the process.

Physics, lighting, terrain, Audio, VR components etc etc all stuck in the past. It was the only way forward to be able to deliver a more advanced gameplay and visuals and bring in new techniques for 2019.
This is always risky and a major undertaking. So with many backups safely tucked away the update process was started. It was indeed rough! The game fell down some stairs, was run over by a passing truck, washed down a drain pipe, floated out to sea in a huge storm and eventually came to rest on a remote beach, unconscious and gasping for air.
All that remained was the Levels for the game, sound, characters and weapons.
*end dramatic music*

Being rebuilt currently from the ground up for the super version of Primordian is, UI, Main Player, Combat, NPC's, Skills, VFX, Weapons, Ambient Creatures, Save Systems, Lighting, additional modes and basically everything.
New features will be added such add subtitles in many languages, English, German, Russian, French and Italian to start with.



The great news about this is that it is also a much faster process to rebuild, things that previously might take 6 days can be done in 6 hours and as a more polished version of its former self, thanks to hindsight, new tech, reviews and feedback.
Maybe even some secret additions that can't be talked about yet.
The game now has 0 errors, 0 bugs and runs very fast.

So,
To be it's best, I personally think the game should be an evolving thing that will just continue to evolve as VR technology evolves, to keep up, experiment, but also try to push some of the limits if possible into the future of new technology around the corner. Somehow along the way of the sheer amount of work I had forgotten about this idea and it was not until completing the game story that I had a chance to sit back and really assess it as a whole.
Then figured, since it's taken this long, it really needs to be done perfectly, even if that takes a little longer.
Although I would love nothing more than for it to be complete tomorrow.



I can't state enough how much the support, ideas and words of those who have enjoyed the game in early access and also taken the time to comment on the good and bad about the game so far have helped to keep progress moving along but also to really give the drive to make it absolutely the best version of itself it can be.
What I was seeing of the game once all put together was not close enough to perfect, so apologies for the extended delay in bringing out the final version but I believe once everyone finally gets a chance to play it from the beginning again you will see it was very well worth while.

So what does this all mean? when will it be done, how much will things change.
The honest answer is, not sure just yet, and a lot:)

Thank you everyone!

Progress and News


Hi,
Part Three of the game is progressing well. It has been a little while since an update but everything is moving along.

The game has now been in early access for over one year! wow, It was never the plan to spend so long, but hearing all of the great thoughts and ideas for the game from the day it was released right up to now has meant a huge amount of time spent going over and over the first few hours of the game. Well worth it also I think and so wanted to thank everyone who has supported, enjoyed and also contributed ideas to the game so far. Thank you also for your patience as the last important section is added.

Even though the game has been in early access for 1 Year, it took 2 years to get to the point of first release in Jan 2018. So after three years and now that work is commencing on the very final scene and Boss fight, it's quite a strange feeling that seemed so far way all those years ago:)..

New weapons for Part Three are going to be pretty interesting, hopefully!. The first Rapid fire rifle in the game and a boomerang style weapon. Both seen in the image above.
There are also some really cool music Tracks created by Vince that have gone into Part Three that really make the final scenes and give them that special mood.

In other news Primordian was voted "Best Alien World" in the The VR365 Game of the Year Awards 2018. If you are into VR and want a great fun daily news show check out VR365.

Thank you also to everyone who has taken the time to leave a review of the game, reading them has been a huge motivation at times when It was really needed:)
What will be added in Part three of the game is probably the most interesting and unique parts of the game so far..can't wait to have them out to you.

Will keep updates coming and thank you again everyone!.

The Story
The game takes place many billions of years ago in the center of the universe, the first planet that all other planets were seeded from. Due to it's unusual rotation, one side of the planet is always in darkness and the other always in light.

Every few thousand years a small moon passes between the planet and sun to create a long lasting eclipse that allows the beings from the dark side to travel among the light.

The current time period is during this eclipse. You play as Grygor, a being form the dark side (or so you believe) sent on a mission to destroy temples of light and allow safe passage for your people during the eclipse.

Uncover the story of both sides of the world, it's many generations of tribal law and unforgiving landscape during this opportune moment in time.
You are the future of our past.
You are the Shadow within the Shadow.
