The AGS Panel is a team of AGS forum veterans who play all of the games here, and give them ratings from one to five cups. The rating system is as follows:
1 CupNot serious entertainment
2 CupsA reasonable game, worth a try
3 CupsA good game, worth playing
4 CupsA great game, well worth your time
5 CupsAn outstanding, must-play game!
Feel free to disagree with the panel's rating, and please don't be offended if you think your game has been under-rated!

(Why has my game been rated 1 cup?)

Close window
If your game has been rated 1 cup, please don't be offended! It's common for your first game release to get a 1-cup rating, due to the game having a lack of polish and flair -- which is understandable, because you're just getting started!

Please understand that the main purpose of the ratings is to help potential game players find high quality, bug-free games to play. You've probably learnt a lot about AGS as a result of making your first game -- so why not use that knowledge to start afresh, and do even better with your next game!

About this game

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.


An epic storyline about the extinction of the human race
Voiceover work starring fan favorite Logan Cunningham (Bastion)
Gorgeous post-apocalyptic setting
Optional puzzles – learn more about the world the more you play

One of the best modern point&click adventure.

Primordia is one of those Must Play adventure games that takes you back to the good'ol days of quality adventure gaming! Highly recommended!

It's a crime this doesn't have any AGS awards. Seriously. A crime.

Great atmosphere and plot. Contains mature, original and multi-dimensional writing with much attention to detail. There's some very original perspectives and philosophical concepts touched upon in this game, and nothing is black & white. Really immerses you in its world and had me thinking about it long after.

Animations are a bit robotic (ha), so couldn't give it a full score, however, I have no doubt this is the best AGS sci-fi bar none.

I really enjoyed this. Some of the puzzles where fantastic! And I really enjoyed the multiple possible paths. I got a bit lost with the pacing in the middle but it ended strong.

Would definitely recommend this!/Have often recommended this :p

Primordia was an experience I will never forget. One of my favorite games of all.

Don't you think Crispin sounds just like Sheldon from Big Bang Theory?

This is for the Demo, since that's what's available here and I have yet to purchase the full game.

This game is fantastic. The setting is wonderful, unlike anything I've played before, and full of atmosphere. The art is amazing, and the programming is top notch. The story itself is intriguing and unique, and the voice acting is superb. I think that the pacing and puzzles are perfect. This is a great example of what adventure gaming is all about.

I can't think of anything negative to say about this game, and I fully intend to buy the full version.
