Despite storyline?s time travelling aspects, Deponia: Doomsday is not attempting to remake, retcon, or reboot Deadalic's most famous adventure game trilogy. It is more of an alternative timeline story, an attempt to bow before the audience and say goodbye to the series. While many may expect a large clip show of the famous scenes of the trilogy, Doomsday is its own individual story; only the two protagonists (Rufus and Goal) are the same, but their adventures, the places they visit, the events they experience, and even the cast they interact with are different. The original trilogy still plays an important part, but more like a series of motives, not a base to build upon. This level of freedom resulted in one of Daedalic's best storytelling yet. The characters, including Rufus, are relatable but realistic in the sense that they all have human flaws. The plot itself also likes to ask some deeper philosophical questions; sometimes answering them, sometimes leaving that to the player entirely. These dilemmas luckily do not outweigh the usual wacky events, where Rufus and his companions have to think their way out of danger, no matter if they are at an Elysian palace, a future university, a rickety amusement park, or in a city built between the rifts of time and space. Although the game mostly refrains from Day of the Tentacle level of four-dimensional thinking, the puzzles remain in the point ?n? click territory?so, prepare for some extreme solutions, with a few hints of timed puzzles. Do not let the final score fool you: Deponia 4 is not a perfect game, as it will never stand on its own. But as something used to say farewell to this world and these characters, it is something that all Deponia players must experience.
I honestly didn't think Daedalic was gonna return to Deponia, but they did it, and I couldn't be more happy. This is trying to kinda fix the ending of Goodbye Deponia, that I think a lot of people weren't happy with how it ended, personally I liked it, but it got us this game so I won't complain :D Deponia Doomsday picks up years in the future with Rufus as an old man, as he's blowing up Deponia. This sets up an interesting story as we worked for 3 games to stop the destruction of Deponia, and there starts a crazy adventure through time and space trying to fix end of time itself that Rufus himself of course started, because who else would. This is more of that fantastic Deponia humor, with once again an interesting story that I genuinely wanted to know. Puzzles feel about the same as in previous games with couple very weird ones mixed in. And the time traveling is put to good use how you're jumping in portals constantly trying to find your way forward. This is actually one unplanned sequel that I'm really happy about, usually these don't go that well in both video games and movies, but they nailed that Deponia feeling just right.
Well, they made me lie. The previous episode of deponia, was not the last! Would you believe it. This one is up to the standards set by the previous games: funny, nice puzzles, stylish gfx, and Rufus is still Rufus. If you like point-and-click games, this is clearly a must have in your collection as a modern representative of the genre.
When I heard about this game, my first thought was "Oh, but why? Wasn't the ending of the third one just perfect? Do they want to change it?" I still bought it on the day of its release, because I couldn't pass the opportunity to play another Deponia game, but I was worried that it just wouldn't be the same if they retcon the ending. I was not disappointed. Not only is the game fun and the puzzles entertaining, not only does it have some interesting new features, but it also fits within the franchise and enriches it. I loved it.
Daedalic Entertainment just did it again. You love Deponia franchise but you were disappointed by the end of the original trilogy? This game is just for you! You'll get EVERYTHING you liked in the previous games and a bit more. I believe this title is one of the best (if not the best) spin-offs ever made. There're a couple of situation in your life when you wish you could erase a part of your mind just to be able to experience something like the first time you did it. It's like that. Buy it, play it and play it once more!
