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.

For the most part it was good but there were a few things that you needed to do to get to the next area that you had to figure out by just randomly clicking. It felt like the items you needed to collect and put together weren't things that you would think of yourself.
The art style and voice acting were really well done.

Deponia is an excellent presentation that if you tell a story well, you can turn a highly unlikeable hero into a likeable character. By time. The art style and the presentation of Deponia, - the world of Junk -, is great, the supporting characters are all memorable and the whole story is filled with a unique, but likeable humor and funny dialogues. The only reason why I don't give 90+ for this game is the very beginning. Honestly, I didn't like Rufus at all in the first ~30 minutes or so and I wanted to shot him after the first few dialogues, sentences and actions. But I'm glad I didn't uninstall the game after the first impression as by time he became a very likeable character. If you can survive the first few minutes, you'll enjoy Rufus' story from the beginning to the end. And the World of Deponia deserves this chance.
Great adventure in a lovely world called DeponiaPradlik | Aug. 16, 2013 | See all Pradlik's reviews »
I never was a big fan of point and click adventures but lately after spending few hours with Deponia or Walking Dead I really changed mind about this genre. Deponia is nicely animated game with brilliant humour and lots of challenging puzzles. Rufus himself is a pain in the ass for the Deponian community but you'll get to love his character and will enjoy his adventure.
