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'.
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!
Great Game!Plasros | July 6, 2013 | See all Plasros's reviews »
Amazing game with lots of personality! Puzzles sometimes have illogical solutions but in hindsight I just needed to be more observant. The creators are great at adding more and more layers of depth to puzzles so the first solution you come up with is only a part of it. I love how fresh every puzzle is, they never recycle elements. More hilarious moments in this one than the first (lollipop scene is priceless). Rufus seemed like a total ass in the first one but I'm really starting to like him and root for him, even if he's still an ass. Again the only issue with this series is some mismatch between audio and subtitles but it barely takes away from the experience since it only happens once or twice, pretty good for a translated game. A real gem for adventure games.
