Good Looking and Amusingbwrussell | Jan. 6, 2014 | See all bwrussell's reviews »
Deponia features the mechanics of a classic point-and-click with a beautiful hand drawn graphics and an interesting (if a little short) soundtrack. In typical P&C fashion you explorer various environments, interacting with set pieces and collecting items to be used later, completing various tasks that range from the mundane to the ludicrous. The first act dragged on a little and had some real out-of-the-box puzzle solutions but the last two acts really pickup and are paced a little better.
The artwork really is gorgeous and does an excellent job of bringing a world full of junk and debris to life. The soundtrack is pretty good but isn't what you would call easy listening so after hearing the same few songs over and over again in each act it can be a little grating. The writing was typically funny and the voice acting is top notch although at times the main character is a little overbearing.
Overall Deponia is good fun (although maybe a little overpriced for the length when not on sale) and if you're a point and click fan it will be right up your alley. Be warned, if you're following the plot at all you're going want the rest of the series, cliffhanger city central.

Deponia is one of the rare point and click adventure games that really makes you feel good and engaged. It has an AMAZING art style and the game doesn't drag on more than it needs to. The soundtrack is great and the voice acting is flawless. The main point in this game is the story and the characters. The story is an unbelievable tale and the main character ( its hard to say if its a protagonist ) is really well designed and funny. Trough out the game there are lots of funny moments and good humor. There are puzzles here and there that are not really that hard, but there is an option for hints so you won't get stuck. I recommend it to anyone that wants to cool off from hardcore game and wants to relax in a simple yet funny and engaging game.
A tribute to the classicsNeonberry | Dec. 19, 2013 | See all Neonberry's reviews »
Deponia is a great tribute to the classic point and click adventure games, but sadly not much more. It starts off great: the artwork is very atmospheric, the characters are fairly well though out (even if not overly original), dialogues are good with plenty of options and background information to find out. The puzzles are challenging but solvable and the jokes are pretty funny (most of the time). As the game progresses it seems that the end of it was kind of rushed a bit, but it still keeps up alright. The steampunk setting is well executed but is "just" the setting mostly - the characters and events could have took place in any other just as well. I would recommend this game to all lovers of classic point and click adventures - though don't expect it to revolutionize the genre. It was the first game I played from Daedalic and it absolutely caught my interest in the rest of their adventure games.
Exellent! Lucasarts would be proud.sheldipez | Nov. 18, 2013 | See all sheldipez's reviews »
Deponia is a hidden gem, ok it may not be that well hidden as Daedalic, the developers, have just completed their Deponia trilogy, BUT it’s a game that you need to play if you have any slight interest in humorous Lucasarts-style point n click adventures of the past as this is the closest you’re going to get. You play as Rufus who is a kind of cross between Guybrush Threepwood (of Monkey Island fame) and Ash (Evil Dead’s reluctant hero) as he tries to leave his garbage filled home planet and get the games’ heroine ‘Goal’ back to hers. During the adventure you’ll have funky hummable music, stunning painted backgrounds, really nice animation and excellent voice acting through-out.
Funny Point and Click adventureADUAN | Oct. 19, 2013 | See all ADUAN's reviews »
While I am not the biggest fan of point-and-click adventure games, I found this game to be a funny and interesting one. The characters are memorable, with funny lines and traits, and the world of Deponia is quite the unique one.
The point-and-click nature of this game can sometimes mean that the solutions for puzzles will require some very out-of-the-box thinking on how to solve them. However, I found most of the puzzles to be manageable to solve.
Overall, for those who like point-and-click adventures, they should add this one to their library of games.
