    A fantastic adventure game, featuring some extremely intelligent riddles that require deep thinking. At the same time, it narrates a beautiful story, one that takes place in a setting very different than those of most games. [September 2012]

    Aside from the fact that some puzzle solutions can be quite far fetched sometimes, Deponia is one of the most entertaining point & click titles we've seen in the last couple of years. It's very hard not to play this game with a big smile on your face because of Rufus and his idiotic actions.

    The only think we can ask for is a sequel. Recommended for everyone interested in the genre, with great puzzles and sense of humor. It offers a classic, challenging gameplay, which should be enough to keep fans of the adventures games playing till they finish it.

    You´ve got to hand it to Daedalic: They know, what an expertly crafted point and click adventure has to look like. Veterans of the genre and newcomers alike can give this one a go without hesitation, especially considering the low price tag.

    There's a bit of personality and charm in this adventure, but it still lacks a beating heart under the façade of hilarity and bright colours.

    Despite a poor beginning and ending, I can't shake off the warm feeling Deponia left me with. It's a game with a big heart and some clever puzzles that recall a special time in the history of adventure games.

    Deponia's saved from being worse than Yesterday by at least having a simple understandable storyline and by not taking itself too seriously, but that's not saying much.

The story keeps you on the edge of your seat trying to progress to the next chapter every time. The main characters humor is constant and around every turn you'll find your self laughing at the simplest things. I would recommend this game to anyone who reads this and I have showed this game to my friends and they all agreed it was great. Expand

    Cringe-worthy writing which tries to be funny and self aware, but it isn't funny at all.

    I hated protagonist after less than a minute of his stupid joke-like attempts.
