It Turns Out, This Is A Really Awesome Year To Love Gorgeous Adventure Games

I would never have expected 2012 to turn out to be such a phenomenal year to be an adventure game fan. And yet, here we are.

This new one is Primordia, brought to us by Wadjet Eye Games. Those are the same folks who brought us 2011's Gemini Rue and this summer's fantastic Resonance.

Primordia posits a post-apocalytpic future where robots have long since become the dominant form of life on Earth. And even robots have to deal with power, greed, and corruption.

It's also pretty. So very, very pretty. The palette of earth-tones and rust-tones create a gorgeous setting that I can't wait to dive into and inevitably get stuck on a puzzle in.

    Reminds me of Beneath a Steel Sky and Machinarium. Good combination.

      same. I was convinced it was Beneath a Steel Sky seeing the first pic!

        Same here. I could have sworn it was from the Belle Vue area.

    Robots are not a form of life... except maybe for Karl Stefanovic.



    Thing is, a lot of these are festering in the depths of the AGS forums right now, like this one has been for well over a year now. For example, this amazingly gorgeous and stunning game that everyone should keep an eye on, 'Journey of Iesir'

      Oh and ah, my game too. Of course ^_^

        I thought that the first link was going to be for Anna's Quest

        The art style of The Journey of Iesir is very cool

    Another one I'll have to check out at some point. Finished The Book of Unwritten Tales last night and will probably give Deponia a go in the near future.

    Has wadjet increased their resolution yet? Their other games don't stretch to fullscreen all that well and Deponia's super smooth art is spoiling me.
