What happened to the humans?

In a desolate, ruined world inhabited only by robots, the taciturn android Horatio searches for answers. Where did he come from? Where have all the humans gone? And what, if any, was his role in it?

Torn from his peaceful existence in the crashed airship, the UNIIC, Horatio and his sarcastic floating friend Crispin are forced to travel to Metropolis, City of Glass and Light, to retrieve their stolen power core. What they discover there changes their understanding of the world and their place in it, for better or worse.

Full voice acting, featuring Logan Cunningham (the voice of Bastion) as Horatio.

-- Reviews --

Adventure Gamers - "Beautiful, surrealistic retro graphics; likeable characters and a deceptively sprawling plot." 4/5

Eurogamer - "Primordia is delightful, smart and packed with personality." 7/10

Rock Paper Shotgun - "A cast of thoroughly insane-in-the-short-circuited-membrane side characters keeps the ride nice and lively as well, complimenting the oppressively dreary setting with a strong mix of mystery driven drama, Old West frontier charm, and dark humor."

Gamezebo - "Primordia is a very good game, packed with enough secrets, surprises and twists to keep it interesting from start to finish." 4/5

Mood driven in depth mysterious plot

This game is amazing! The music ,art style , and voice acting mesh perfectly together to envelop you in the world if primordia. The somber tone and story elements reminded me a touch of blade runner. I defiantly recommend downloading it. My one critisim is that the controls are not immediately available they appear when you hover over a certain part of the screen you don't get a menu until you find your data pouch ,but I suppose that was intentional to give focus to the landscape of the scene. Overall great game

Ggggggrrrrreeeeeeeeeettttt ,

True Love

5 minutes into the game, and I already knew that I was in love. Crispin, your helper, is perfectly witty, and Horatio NullBuilt Version V, was intelligent and a deep character. Right away I was in love with the art, with the curiosity, and I could not bring myself to put the game down. It brought out so much raw emotion in me, and I fell in love over and over again. It was so worth buying, that words can't even begin to explain. The only issue is that it's impossible to get one achievement, but compared the wonder and joy I felt, that's nothing.

A must-have adventure!

A tale of humanity's distant legacy. Wonderfully imagined and vividly realized. This is a tale, an experience, that I will long remember. I was wholly engrossed in the story and felt fully rewarded emotionally, aesthetically, and interactively. The cast of characters grows quickly and each adds a vibrant piece to the puzzle, to the legend of what happened to the robot gods, their makers: us. From the music, to the voice acting, to the plot, to the art and graphics; this is a fine quality game. Please give it a chance. You will love it.
