There are plenty of post-apocalyptic games, but unlike Primordia, few are point-and-click adventures. Meet Horatio and Crispin, two robots content with their everyday life… until their very existence is threatened by the theft of a power core. Their only options now are to recover the stolen energy source or find a replacement.
Developed by Wormwood Studios and published by Wadjet Eye Games, Primordia is an adventure that’s old-school both in terms of puzzle solving and visually; as I wrote in my preview: “the stylish hand-drawn visuals look quite good, with a somewhat pixelated look”. Audio-wise, the game features a fully voiced cast that includes the talent of Logan Cunningham (of Bastion and Resonance fame) as the voice of Horatio. Good stuff!
If you want a glance at what makes Horatio’s sarcastic sidekick tick, I’d recommend reading Crispin’s Log, while the game itself can be picked up for $9.99 either DRM-free from the publisher (with a Steam key) where a demo can also be found, from GOG and finally, Steam.
