Critic Reviews for Primordia
Primordia is delightful, smart and packed with personality, but it also comes to a close just as you're ready to explore more of its engrossing world. Leaving the player wanting more is no great disaster, of course - and the truncated length makes it tempting to go back and try to earn some of the different endings - but it still feels like a really good game that is only a few drafts away from greatness.
There is plenty to forgive Primordia for, but if you can get past the issues and lose yourself in the game there’s a rich and emotional story waiting for you. I’m a bit of a robot nut myself and despite all of my nitpicks about the game I found myself deeply affected by the ending. There’s a lot of reasons to fight Horatio’s war and Primordia does a great job of considering all of them even if it trips a few times on the way there. If you thoroughly enjoyed games like Beneath A Steel Sky or Full Throttle, I can guarantee that you’ll find plenty to like about Primordia.
Wadjet Eye Games doubles the recent success of Resonance with an equally strong title. Primordia asserts itself in the post-apocalyptic environment, proposing a winning recipe based on retro style and through two ingredients: simple playability and an original script.

An SF-post-apo adventure that abuses a little of its Dude-bro humor but delivers a script and an interesting universe. Some flaws are compensated by the choice of the developers to vary the solutions to the same puzzle. Primordia could have been a more refined hair all the same.

Adventure in the world of robots, in which it is in vain to look for people, is automatically associated with Machinarium. Primordia, a new proposal from Wadjet Eye Games, is different. It is a humorous, though not avoiding difficult topics, science fiction story.
