In an attempt to escape his junkyard existence, Rufus runs head on into a mystery that will put him on an adventure to save his garbage dump and all the unique characters in it! PROS: + Really good art! + Voiceovers are done well + Unique characters + Some good puzzles CONS: - Story... what's the story again? - Puzzles devolve into pixel hunts - Unclear/too many objectives at times - Some zany/weird dialogue I really, really wanted to love this game. The art looked amazing. The dialogue reminded me of updated adventure games like Monkey Island. The atmosphere seemed unique. In the end, however, I found myself lost a lot of the time trying to figure out what to do next because there wasn't any real-world logic involved. When I knew what I had to do, I found myself searching around random areas trying to find anything that I could use to help me solve the puzzles because it wasn't clear what I needed. Most of the time I found frustration. If it's on a great sale, try it out and see if you like it. $20 is too much.
An adventure game about a simple man, with grand ideas. Great voice acting, nicely drawn environments and entertaining jokes make an overall charming game and quite fun to play. Some solutions to puzzles are a bit far fetched which make them difficult to complete and I don't like the soundtrack that much but generally I recommend this game if you want a good point and click adventure.
I'm not into point and click adventure games anymore and that's the main reason I didn't enjoy Deponia the way I should. However, I must admit this is my favourite Deponia game as I think Chaos on Deponia added nothing to the main plot and Goodbye Deponia was the ending the series didn't deserve (Doomsday was even worse than the others). Deponia is the perfect game for those who loved LucasArts classic adventure games where the absurd was the motive for everything. Well, at least that is what should be since I'm a big fan of LucasArts but didn't have a blast playing Deponia. This first establishment features an interesting main character fun enough. I liked Rufus in this title but grew tired of him the moment I realized the game takes his stupidity to nowhere, and repeats the same jokes and situations all opver the 4 games that have been released while I write this lines. Puzzles are ok, a bit hard for my taste. What really annoyed me from the beginning is the fact that there are way too much dialogue in the game, and 80 % of that dialogue is unnecessary. I didn't like the saga at all, but its beginning is probably the only game worth it. I wouldn't buy it though considering this is just episode 1.
Deponia is a story-rich point and click adventure game, Starring the protagonist rufus and his beloved ms.goal as he tries to escape from deponia and live in elysieum and do the impossible, the environments are so colorfull and shiny, the replayability is great also with the droppeljug mode wish is so fun after completing the game, Played this type of games before but surely deponia left a deep hole in my heart and made me curious and can't wait to try out next episodes and complete the journey, The game is great please don't miss such a great adventure even if it was 60$ I would buy it.
I do really like this game. It has a charming art style with interesting characters and solid writing. The story however is lackluster, the music is hit and miss, and it can be frustrating simple sometimes. it's good fun and worth the price, and I'll likely pick up the sequels soon, but it's not as impressive as its hype led me to believe.
