Usually I do not have the patience to play retro (i.e. pixelated) point-and-click adventures anymore, nevermind finish them. This one kept me going though and I played it all in one sitting. What kept me going? The setting and the story were original (at least they were to me) and engaging. The gameplay and puzzles were simple enough to not get tedious without being pure pushovers. Most importantly, though, the characters were interesting and absolutely beautifully voiced -- far superior to a recent so-called "AAA game" that I played where I grew to hate the characters. Not in Primordia: every character was great and the voice actors and sound design was perfect: Horatio, Crispin, Clarity, Ever-Faithful, Gimbal, Goliath, Oswald, Primer, 187th, Memento Moribuilt -- so many awesome voices and dialogues that I enjoyed immensely.
