In our review back in February, we concluded that Primordia's heavily dystopian world was marred by a few problems, and that its potentially brilliant story doesn't quite get told. The latter is something that may well be fixed now with the debut of "Fallen," a three-part prequel story set in Primordia's robot-ruled universe, whose first chapter was released today.
The Indie Royale game bundle returns with its most cryptically mysterious name since the last time it had a cryptically mysterious name. Called the Hammerhead Bundle, it features five games. Some of them are about robots, some of them are about vehicular combat, some of them are about fantasy brawling, none of them appear to be about angry fish. As always, there's a trailer round up of the included games. See how many sharks you can spot.

Humans are a distant memory. Rugged robot Horatio Nullbuilt (Bastion’s narrator Logan Cunningham) passes the days studying the Book of Man and trading quips with his sassy droid Crispin, or traversing the desert on the lookout for scraps to maintain his beaten-up spaceship, the Unniic. But then their peacefully nomadic existence is shattered by the rogue robot Scraper – who steals the Unniic’s energy core – and they’re launched on a quest to retrieve it.
Steam have just announced the third set of titles to successful make it through the Greenlight process. There's some great looking stuff in the list of 13 games now eligible for a Steam release. There's also Dragon's Lair. I suppose the public can't be right about everything.
Wadjet Eye Games, makers of the excellent Blackwell series and the publisher behind Gemini Rue, have released a demo for their upcoming adventure game Primordia. Set in a post-apocalyptic robot society, you play as Horatio - voiced by the Bastion narrating Logan Cunningham - in a quest to bring back humanity so they can reformat the world afresh. Let's hope we remember where we left the reinstall disc. I'm always losing those bloody things.
Wadjet Eye Games' upcoming Primordia looks a little like Machinarium, a bit like Beneath A Steel Sky, and like a whole lot of fun. It's the story of a robot, Horatio, forced to venture into the remains of the world where mankind has long since checked itself out. Take a glimpse of the future in this trailer, starring the voice of Logan "Forever The Narrator In Bastion" Cunningham.
