Point-and-click games don't get much better than this!

SilverWulf86 | Dec. 5, 2013 | Review of Chaos on Deponia

Immediately as you fire up Deponia, you're treated to hand-crafted 2D eye-candy with so much personality and life despite the static nature of the scenes that you forget you're playing a point-and-click puzzle adventure game and just get lost in the visuals and the story. Ah, the story. I absolutely love games with deep stories and some serious think-about-it plot devices, but you won't find that here. Now, don't get ahead of me too quickly. I'm not saying the story in Deponia is bad. The truth is that the story is detailed, yet pretty much as simple as it could be, but it wears those rags like a finely crafted Italian suit, not once allowing me to tire of the plot or the development. If I had to sum it up in three words, I'd have to say "Brilliance in simplicity". If you have any love for games like Myst, Tell-Tale Games' The Walking Dead, or even those room escape games all over the internet, you'll definitely want to pick up this outstandingly witty and entertaining trilogy, but please start with the first game "Deponia" before moving on to "Chaos on Deponia" and finally wrapping up with "Goodbye Deponia".
