Product Description

Product 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.

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.

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

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!

The game is set on the rubbish strewn planet of Deponia - the main character, Rufus, is desperate to leave and think he sees his chance when a beautiful girl from Elysium falls down to the planet. Rufus is an engaging character in spite of his many faults and many of his conversations made me laugh out loud. All the people you meet are fun to talk to and the whole game is very reminiscent of Whispered World. It does have faults. It's insanely difficult at times, as even though it's just a matter of mixing stuff in the inventory it's not at all obvious what you have to do. Sometimes people need to be spoken to in the right order and the mini games are very, very difficult. I did get fed up with having to keep checking a walkthrough as I had no idea what to do and it all got very frustrating. Also I feel the game ended rather abruptly and could have done with being longer. It was only the fact that it was so difficult at times that made it last a decent length of time, otherwise it would have been very short indeed. Four stars is probably being a bit generous but I liked the humour and the graphics and I've been struggling to find a decent game lately so I'm grateful for anything.

I like point and click adventures, especially ones which can make me smile from time to time (it is supposed to be a game!).
I liked this game. Puzzles are not too difficult, not too much tedious walking from one scene to another, only to have to go back three or four times to collect something you need. Good value and worth a go.

I found this game great fun. The main character is Rufus who is bit egotistical and spends most of his time planning an escape from Deponia to a place called Elysium. He tries so hard to achieve his ambition any of his more dubious actions seemed irrelevant. Game has some interesting puzzles, I particularly liked one involving pigeons.

I never thought I'd ever say this, but.... This game could knock Monkey Island of it's perch. I don't think I stopped laughing from begining to end, and our hero Rufus is amazing, amazing he's managed to stay alive for so long, he leaves total chaos in his wake, yet he really truly believes he's the best thing since sliced bread. So for all you fellow point and click fans that have been mourning the lose of Monkey island, this is a heavy weight contender, if not the winner !!!
Everything about it just so good.

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!
