Primordia Continues With Prequel Story, “Fallen,” Which You Can View Here As An Audiobook

Back when I reviewed Primordia, while I may have found some of the game’s mechanics a little lacking, I thoroughly enjoyed the story, the characters, and the dialogue of the game, especially between the main characters. Apparently, others enjoyed it as much as I did, because Wormwood Studios and Wadjet Eye Games have released the first and second of a three-part prequel story called “Fallen” online, with “Awake” as both an illustrated PDF and an audiobook, and “Arise” as just an illustrated PDF, with an audiobook on the way. Once all three parts PDFs are out, they will be collected into a single, free-to-downloaded PDF or ePub file.

“Fallen” is said to be spoiler-free for those who haven’t played Primordia yet, and serves more as an introduction to the setting, themes, and depth of the game. For fans who have already completed the game, “Fallen” “sheds light on some of the mysteries alluded to during the adventure and reveals a bit of what has happened in the world after [protagonist] Horatio’s journey concluded.” Something I’m not to pleased about (but apparently others may be) is what is said to be a lack of Crispin–Horatio’s sidekick during Primordia–whose “snarky” and “light-hearted banter” Wadjet says some players objected to, in contrast to the melancholy world Horatio lived in.
