Oh My: Resonance/Gemini Rue Folks Announce Primordia

It's been an almost absurdly good year for adventure games, but there are still four months left on the calendar. And so along comes the Wormwood-developed Primordia, coated head-to-mechanized-toe in dystopic dust, but holding its head high thanks to a partnership with Wadjet Eye Games, which puts it alongside the likes of Resonance, Gemini Rue, Blackwell Deception, and The Shivah - among others. In short, the hand-drawn, well, everything looks gorgeous, and the concept's not sounding too shabby either. Also, like Resonance, it features the mesmerizingly gruff tones of none other than Logan Cunningham - aka, the Bastion narrator.

Compared to the trailer - which really gives the world flavor - the on-paper description of the story ends up sounding a bit flat. Observe:

"Ages have passed since legendary Man walked the planet. Now, in the desolate wastelands beyond the city of Metropol, a solitary robot named Horatio jealously guards his freedom and independence. All that is taken away from him when a marauding foe steals his power source, forcing him to leave the safety of his home and set out on a perilous journey into the wastes - and into his own mysterious past."

Human extinction, mysterious pasts, wastelands, etc. It's definitely been done before. But Wadjet Eye's adventuring track record is nothing to scoff at, and I can't wait to see where this one takes us. Fortunately, it sounds like my impatience will be rewarded, as Primordia's slated for a "Fall 2012" release. So then, Summer, you can leave now. Go on. You've already shown us your full hand with The Olympics, and you're too hot anyway.
