NEW YORK - November 13, 2012 - Wadjet Eye Games, publisher of retro-styled adventure games including Gemini Rue and Resonance, is now taking preorders for their next release, Primordia, at http://www.primordiagame.com.
The first commercial project from indie developer Wormwood Studios, the cyberpunk-themed Primordia will release as a PC download on December 5, 2012.
What happened to the humans? Set in a post-apocalyptic world strewn with cast-off machines, Primordia tells the story of Horatio Nullbuilt, a stoic robot who values his solitude and independence. Horatio spends his days studying the Book of Man, sparring with his droid companion Crispin, and tinkering with the airship they call home -- a peaceful existence that becomes threatened when a rogue robot steals the energy source that the pair needs to survive. When Horatio and Crispin's search for energy brings them to the dazzling city of Metropol, the simple quest to recover their stolen power core leads to unexpected discoveries about Horatio's origins and a new understanding of the legendary humans who walked the earth before him.

"Primordia has one of the most evocative art styles I've ever seen -- art that tells half the story. It somehow turns a barren wasteland and corroded metal into something very beautiful, and from the very first screenshots, I needed to know how the world got that way," says Dave Gilbert, founder of Wadjet Eye Games. "Thankfully, the rest of the game is just as intriguing. The guys at Wormwood have put an amazing amount of heart, energy and passion into Primordia and it shows. I feel honored to have this game as part of our catalog."
