Product Description

Manufacturer's Description

In Deponia, the world has degenerated into a vast garbage dump, in which the crotchety Rufus ekes out his sorry existence. He is part of the lowest social class, doomed to live his life in literal mountains of trash. He hopes for an opportunity to get into the world of the rich, who live in floating cities high above the clouds. Fate seems to smile on the snotty good-for-nothing when one day the attractive lady named Goal from the higher sectors plummets into one of the trash heaps. Rufus decides to help the young woman out by taking her back to her husband. When he notices that Goal’s husband is a dead ringer for himself, he hatches a diabolical scheme to gain access to the upper world. However, things don’t work out quite as planned, since he has feelings for the beauty which limit his usual unscrupulousness.

The twist-filled story takes its off-beat characters all over trash planet Deponia, a unique game world in the style of Douglas Adams, Terry Pratchett and Matt Groening. From Kuvaq, an improvised village built inside a giant trash heap, to the swimming black market and the dark corners of the elevated planetary railways: Deponia is brought to life with detailed hand-painted backgrounds in widescreen format and top-quality cartoon animation combined nine chapters featuring many exciting plot twists.

3.0 out of 5 stars It's Ok but it's no Monkey Island 25 Feb 2013
Verified Purchase
I love point and click adventures and all in all this one is just about OK. The story line is reasonable and I did like the little twist at the end. The art work is nice enough too.What I didn't like was the length of the dialogue. The characters have much to much to say and some of the corny voice acting gets a little boring. Another big problem is that the main character just isn't very likable and you feel like your helping this guy succeed when really you'd rather he didn't! Some of the puzzle solutions are a bit obscure too and I had to resort to a walk through on a couple of occasions. I also found the game quite buggy with disappearing artwork to the point where at one stage the screen was almost completely black. Worth buying if you find it reasonably priced.

5.0 out of 5 stars A Steampunk Monkey Island 13 Aug 2012
Fun: 5.0 out of 5 stars   
What can i say about this game, other than I had more fun playing this 2D puzzel game than half of the newest high graphic consule games I have played over that last few months.
The character's are brillient and engaging and just twisted enough that you can really fell yourself disliking them. This include your amoral protagonist by the way and all of them will serve to make those infuriating hours you spend on a hard puzzel hardly noticable.
If you loved Monkey Island, as I did, then you will love this game and much like Monkey Island you will be joining figgiting for the next few months waiting for the next game in the series to get translated.
Try this game if you love to be challenged mentally and laugh while doing it.

4.0 out of 5 stars Good, but only in english 1 Sep 2013
By eko
Verified Purchase
Good game, but this is only the english version. Had hoped we could choose between original (german) and english language. Would prefer to play this game in german as the humor really doesn't always work too well in english. I find, that the germans often have more of a "childish" humor. (this is meant in a good way, it just doesn't really work for me in english.)

Some puzzles are a bit annoying though... But funny when you figure them out!

3.0 out of 5 stars Runs slowly with Windows 7 27 July 2013
Verified Purchase
It seemed to load ok but when playing the game there as always a delay, often of 2/3 minutes when changing scenes. Also the game will sometimes freeze within scenes for 2/3 minutes. I tried to get some technical support from Nordic Games but got no reply from them.

4.0 out of 5 stars eccentric heroes on a comedy adventure 7 Sep 2012
Verified Purchase
Fun: 5.0 out of 5 stars   
Deponia is about the adventures of Rufus,a guy with illusions of self-importance and grandeur,who lives on Deponia,a place filled with garbage.Even filled with garbage,people live there but Rufus thinks he should be in Elysium.A place for the privileged and only them.A place where you can go only by one way.And that way is by some kind of train which is guarded by the Organon.An organisation meant for order but turned evil.One day Rufus makes it to the train-like thing but gets thrown back to Deponia but not alone.Goal,a girl from Elysium,is thrown with him.This adventure is about Rufus trying to help both Goal and himself by getting them to Elysium.But there are obstacles along the way.....

A lot of fun to play with very good puzzles.Awesome backgrounds and whacky character sprites.A very good game all in all....looking forward to the second.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great game 22 Dec 2013
Verified Purchase
Fantastic buy...a really good game in all respects; music, artwork, voice acting, puzzles, humour, everything really. The game has a great storyline and the difficulty just right, i.e. you get stuck sometimes, but it never seems to be for too long. I highly recommend it

5.0 out of 5 stars Colourful Funny Adventure 16 Oct 2013
By Daveil
Fun: 5.0 out of 5 stars   
A throwback to the old point and click adventures like Monkey Island and Broken Sword. If you enjoyed them you will love this. I wish more of this type catoon adventures were back on the market.

I have played a couple of point and clicks but this one is by far the best I have ever played! The main character is incredibly funny and sticks to his stubborn, lazy character during the whole game. The gameplay is really fun and has a tiny bit of difficulty as well. The only downside is how long it took me to complete. Maybe it was just because I couldn't stop playing but it didn't really last me long at all. If you like point and clicks or you want to discover something new then you should definitely get this game!

5.0 out of 5 stars Excelent point and click Adventure
The best and most fun Adventure game I've played in years! Imaginative characters, fun ridles (some of them really hard) and a storyline that has enough twists to keep you playing!
