Point-and-click adventure games are a relic of the past nowadays, but there are still those who prefer them to the modern equivalent. In addition, the genre also used to feature a lot more complicated puzzles and memorable stories, not to mention the characters that have lived on to this day. Hence, trying to resurrect such games is always a good idea, as long as there still are those who remember the past.
A post-apocalyptic world inhabited by robots
Primordia is an adventure game that tells the tale of a post-apocalyptic world deserted by humans and populated by androids instead. To stay true to the genre, everything about the game was designed to come as close to the old classics as possible, including the graphics and the general gameplay mechanics. Hence, nostalgia should stick with you all through the story.
Speaking of which, the plot revolves around two lovable characters, namely an android by the name of Horatio Nullbuilt and his companion Crispin. Together, they must deal with a variety of dangers as the story keeps rolling, including rogue robots stealing a valuable energy source and a giant city riddled with puzzles. In addition, various side-quests and puzzles are included for your pleasure, although you are not forced to solve them.
Pleasant graphics and tricky riddles
In case you are not very familiar with the point-and-click genre, then you must know that it’s all about paying attention to the environment, noticing things out of place, and combining items to obtain what you need. The same is true for Primordia as well, which means that you do not need fast reflexes and a quick hand to solve the puzzles. Instead, creative thinking and attention to detail can get you out of the jam most of the time.
As far as the visual presentation is concerned, the graphics are actually extremely basic from a technical point of view. The artwork is sublime, on the other hand, even if the bit depth does not come close to what modern technology is capable of nowadays. In addition, the game is voice acted as well, so you can form a much stronger bond with the characters after you hear them speak for a few hours.
A classic adventure game for old-school fans of the genre
When it’s all said and done, Primordia may not be received too well by the modern crowds, but those who know where it takes its inspiration from should find it amazing. Not only that, but the story is brilliant and there are many clever puzzles just waiting for you to figure them out along with your android pals.
