Chaos on Deponia
Third party DRM: SteamThis game requires a free Steam account to play.
With this long-expected sequel to the critically highly acclaimed and lavishly praised Deponia, the player enters round two. Chaos on Deponia turns out to be even wackier than its predecessor and instantly puts the player under its spell.
After the events on Deponia, it seems that Rufus came to his senses. He's grown prudent, amicable, kind and caring, without any intention to cause major mayhem just to further his own selfish ends. It seems he is far from chaining himself to flaming saw blades, training torpedo-dolphins or foraging through platypus nests. Or is he?
Ultimately it's a flaming saw blade grounding Goal on Deponia again. By accident, her consciousness gets split into three parts and stored to three different discs. Now it's on Rufus once again to convince all three parts of Goal, utilizing his remarkable charming wits, to become one again, venture to Eylsium with her and save Deponia from certain doom while he's at it.
The second adventure on Deponia tells a unique, self-contained story playable without further knowledge of the first installment. Fans of the first game discover new aspects of familiar characters' backgrounds and see open questions answered.
Unique world honoring the tradition of Douglas Adams, Terry Pratchett and Matt Groening.
Hand-drawn art design in full HD glory and high-quality cartoon animation drawn in comic style.
Bizarre characters and wacky humor meet challenging puzzles.
Elaborate soundtrack with many atmospheric tracks.
From the creators of the award-winning adventures 'Edna & Harvey: The Breakout' , 'Edna & Harvey: Harvey's New Eyes' and 'The Whispered World'.

Great art and humor from the main cast. Short and poor puzzlesLegolas_Katarn | Oct. 7, 2015 | See all Legolas_Katarn's reviews »
The game starts out very well but once you get to the first larger area the humor is less frequent and you're moving back and forth between the same areas trying to collect the items you need to complete some mostly easy but annoying puzzles. When you finish that area you are already done with about 2/3 of the game, probably more, as the new puzzles will likely take less time to figure out. The game is short and Rufus' main antagonist Cletus only shows up at the very beginning and end of the game. The new rebel characters don't get much time to be either memorable or funny, one is only used for a one note joke about the way he pronounces things, which ends up leading to an annoying puzzle where you need to choose multiple correct lines that he won't have trouble saying so Rufus doesn't laugh at him. Luckily Doc, Goal, and Bozo are with you for the majority of the game and are the source of much of the games humor either with their actions or their reaction to Rufus. Goal's personality has also been split into three that you are able to switch between leading to some amusing situations and different reactions from her depending on who she is. The art, music, and voice acting are all excellent. Like the rest of the series, the game has terrible achievements that can either be very easily missed when certain things don't allow you to interact with them multiple times for no reason or they are unlocked by performing the same action 10+ times, usually, for no reason. From a puzzle, minigame, and location perspective I think this is the weakest game in the series but a lot of humor comes from having the main cast together most of the time.
Huzzah! A sequel is born!toshexy | May 7, 2014 | See all toshexy's reviews »
What can I say about this game you can check in my review of Deponia. What I can add about the sequel is that it does not disappoint. It continues where part one left off and it makes you jump back into that action right away... though in this part there is even more mind-bending decisions being made... seriously how whacked in the head is Rufus? But it's all a ton of fun and if you have played the first part, and are a fun of point and click puzzle adventures, you have no need to even read this review. You want it, so get it right now! Huzzah! So get it right now!
Point-and-click games don't get much better than this!SilverWulf86 | Dec. 5, 2013 | See all SilverWulf86's reviews »
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".

Story tells fate of Rufus. The decision taken by the board to sit on the sky-city of Elysium, which tells of the destruction of a beloved hero landfill causes that must again indent to work and save Deponia. Game is quite long, even longer than original Deponia and gives you more fun then previous one. 2D Graphic design is maintained in the cartoon-style, characteristic of the study. Sound is very good, and in combination with graphic they form a really great composition! Buy it, and play it to the end!
Return to Deponia in style!Pradlik | Aug. 21, 2013 | See all Pradlik's reviews »
Another story of the handyman and tinkerer Rufus on the amazing planet Deponia. The story is surprisingly clever and makes you both think and laugh. The humour is another important aspect - there's even more of it and it's sometimes really clever (quantum physics), sometimes really stupid (Rufus' dialoges and songs to himself) and sometimes really dark (the game isn't really suitable for animal lovers xD) but altogether there's lots of brilliant jokes and funny scenes and the game really made me laugh out loud many times. Finally, the challenges and tasks are still difficult and tricky but not that much if you talk to characters a lot and try to think a bit. Huzzah, let's wait for part three!
