Deponia is an adventure game that's a bit difficult to describe. It has great art, decent writing, some very creative characters, and a pretty interesting story. The writing and voice acting definitely isn't the best I've seen, but it gets the job done. The game has a very clean interface, letting you access your inventory with the mouse wheel and providing interact and inspect functions on different mouse buttons. It's also significantly longer than most adventure games I've played as my playthrough clocked in at around 10 hours.
The one off-putting thing about the game is that you play as an idiot who frequently causes havok around town and everybody hates. It's a really odd position to be in though the character is quite interesting and is responsible for most of the humor in the game.
The puzzles can get overwhelming at points with tons of items piling up in your inventory with little clue about how to use them though the game keeps it mostly reasonable.
I did run into a very frequent bug where the dialog options window was misaligned, sometimes dropping options off the bottom of the screen, but it never impeded the game. There were also one or two occasions where certain subtitles were displayed in German.
Deponia is definitely a good game and stands by itself, though it is designed as a trilogy and buying all three games can be a bit of an investment for adventure games. If you want good adventure games though, it's probably worth the price.
