ANOTHER POSSIBLE FIX: In internet explorer go to Tools>Internet Options>Security tab>Click Trusted Sites>Click the "sites" button and add to the list. Make sure require server verification in unchecked and make sure the enable protected mode button is uncheck as well in the trusted sites section. I have no way to verify this but it seems viable. Let me know if it works.

If that doesn't work try playing the game in Popup mode.

FIRST: THANKS to Tom Fulp for setting up the Power of Three event last summer.
SECOND: If you get stuck watch the video walkthroughs accessable through the in game menu.
THIRD: In the boss fight, watch for the blue target... and prehaps use your blue ability where it is pointing...
FOURTH:If the game runs slow for you right click and lower the quality settings until the game runs at normal speed.

Primary has been a long project for FrozenFire and me, we started this back in July... TONS of work have gone into this game and we hope you like it as much as we do.

Primary is about Roy, a super soldier in the land of the HUEman (get it? Ya we are lame.), who must climb to the top of Prizim tower to try to find a way to close the portal that is allowing horrible black goopy creatures into his world.

NOTE: You can play with an x-box controller with an emulator like Xpadder, I am told this also fixes the "Sticky Keys" bug. The elevator menu is able to be controlled with the keyboard as soon as the game has saved so you don't have to use the mouse if you don't want to.

If you are interested in learning more about the process of making Primary you can read my post mortum of sorts here:

And yet...

I liked the setting and I liked the concept, but some bits didn't work out right. The layout was tricky to remember, since two keys did five different things in three different colors. Even the color keys took me a dozen levels to get used to, because they were out of order with color frequency (RoYgBiv). Customizable keys would make this game a lot more playable.

As for the rest of the game, the slippery floor mechanic was way overused. I can see how they are kind of necessary to justify yellow's power, but too much is too much. I don't think I would mind if one power was used less than the rest.

Speaking of both key layout and overused mechanics, wall jumping was a HUGE issue. Not only was it troubling to have to constantly readjust two directions on one hand (up, side, up, side, up, side, up), the controls to do this were put on the left hand, which would be most players' less dominant hand. Customization is a good solution again, but at the very least, it would have been nice to have an alternative jump button somewhere else.

Other than that, it's a great game. I nearly cried on level 15 when, after trying to climb the damn chute 30 times, I finally got there in time, then died in the next chute. And then I repeated the whole sequence about 7 times. But you know what, I'm still going to try, because despite those two overused mechanics, this is a fun game to play.

this game is fantastic. it's requires you to think a bit.. but not the point that you get frustrated because you can't come up with how to move forward. the controls are very well done. the animation is beautiful. the music never got old.

you guys really put a lot of time and effort into making this. this feels like it has the quality of a downloable game on xbla. i wish there was a portable version of this that i could take with me.

i haven't liked a game like this since knightfall 2. thanks for making such an incredible game.

Fun visual style and gameplay, just a little slow for my tastes.

Yes Bentley!

I will have to keep your game in mind while I make mine.
Excellent gameplay, nice music, concept, bosses, art. Heh.. I gotta aim high if I wish to make my shit right.

Same as Cheesenip

I have exactly the same glitch as cheesenip, the controls are broken for me, they work when they want to. Unfortunately, this means that I didn't even go past the first level. Looks like a few people have this glitch. Clearing my Cache and reducing the graphics effect the problem in no way at all. Admittedly, I've had the same problem, but to a much, MUCH lesser extent in Chibi Knight, I actually beat that with the problem, it was usually just continuous rinning or not jumping or attacking, but here, I'm sorry, but it's horrendous. Other than the fact that I couldn't at all play the game, it looked kinda pretty. And er.. the music was nice. I liked the comic strip with the voice overs. That's.. all I can say, sorry. I bet I'd have loved this game too, it looks awesome, but sorry dude, I can't really give you a good score on a game I can't play. I can't give you a bad score, either, so you get a five. That's fair... right? No, it isn't. The game is pretty, so it's a six.

JackSmack responds:

CheeseNip just PM'd me that he tried it in google crome and it works great for him... AND THEN MY HEAD EXPLODED INTO TINY LITTLE CHUNKS...

Anyway if you are having trouble PLEASE try Google Crome and see if you still have issues cause I have been trying really hard and I can't duplicate the issues some people seem to be having.

ALSO MAD PROPS TO CHEESENIP FOR FIGURING THIS OUT. Hopefully it fixes the issue across the board.
