Primordia Review

Imagine a world where humans have wiped themselves out through war, and that they have been gone for so long, that their creations, robots, have built a society of their own and are now making the same mistakes as their masters.

The organic liveform that is Humble Bundle has just grown yet another branch. This time, their actions may or may not have been enough to help out a struggling publisher. There are some complaints though. Was this even worth it after all? The recently ended Humble Bundle was a special one indeed: it featured games from well-known publisher THQ, . To be frank, the $5.76 average purchase price is quite low considering the ridiculous amounts of content available – nine(!) AAA titles plus a DLC for Red Faction: Armageddon. It has made over 5 million dollars total, which, mind you, will be divided between charity, THQ and Humble Bundle itself based on the buyers’ choices in contributions. So all in all, probably not the greatest financial first-aid kit for the California-based publisher. I think we, the consumers have had a fantastic opportunity here, this was...
