When I got Deponia as a gift, I was sure I was going to love it. And I was right. Deponia is basically an old school point and click adventure, like LucasArts' classics. It is a game that every person who loved those games should have in their libraries. The soundtrack, albeit short, is fitting, and when you finish the game you will probably miss the few vocal songs it features. Voice acting was good. Not the best I have ever heard, and I think its quality could have been a bit better. Deponia has a few surprising plot twists, and the plot is good overall.
Hand drawn adventure game, just as I like it.Evranu | Sept. 26, 2014 | See all Evranu's reviews »
'Deponia' was the first Daedalic game that I played. I always loved point and click adventure games, especially hand-drawn ones but I was sceptic about this game. A good friend of mine convinced me that 'Deponia' is worth to give it a shot, so I did. When it comes to graphic aspect, there's nothing to criticize, backgrounds and characters are highly detailed and are really beautiful. The game artwork stands at a high level. The soundtrack fits to the world and story. It's pleasant but there's nothing memorable except for the 'Huzzah' songs, which are hilarious and really suck you into the story. The story itself is interesting, not that original but interesting, and well done. You'll get a good laugh, that's for sure. The main character Rufus is not a typical hero, I doubted that I'd like him, but I eventually discovered that there's much more in him than meets the eye. Don't get me wrong, he's still rude and hard to get with, but eventually he changes in some ways. In conclusion, I am glad that I gave this game a chance. It's not very hard, but it's entertaining and amusing. As a fan of the genre I highly recommend it and of course its next parts.

This game was way better than I expected, and I expected it to be good. Daedalic did a very good job, and I would love to play the next two in the series. The main character is Rufus who basically fails at almost everything, this makes the story very funny and gives it a good plot line I would recommend this to anyone

This is one of the most fun games I have ever played. Period. The characters are all so well thought out, but utterly unpredictable.
The most fun thing about the game is you'd have to think so much outside of the box on this one since most the decisions you need to make and things you have to do are done in the most ridiculous way possible - which is awesome!
Soundtrack, visuals, gameplay and voices are all AMAZING. Seriously, GET THIS GAME - you want to. Do it!
And so say we all! Huzzah! And so say we all! (You'll get the Huzzah reference when you play it :3 )

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.
