About This Game

With this long-expected sequel to the critically highly acclaimed and lavishly praised Deponia, the player enters round two. Chaos on Deponia turns out to be even wackier than its predecessor and instantly puts the player under its spell.

After the events on Deponia, it seems that Rufus came to his senses. He's grown prudent, amicable, kind and caring, without any intention to cause major mayhem just to further his own selfish ends. It seems he is far from chaining himself to flaming saw blades, training torpedo-dolphins or foraging through platypus nests. Or is he?


Ultimately it's a flaming saw blade grounding Goal on Deponia again. By accident, her consciousness gets split into three parts and stored to three different discs.
Now it's on Rufus once again to convince all three parts of Goal, utilizing his remarkable charming wits, to become one again, venture to Eylsium with her and save Deponia from certain doom while he's at it.


The second adventure on Deponia tells a unique, self-contained story playable without further knowledge of the first installment. Fans of the first game discover new aspects of familiar characters' backgrounds and see open questions answered.

HUZZAH ALL OVER AGAIN!

Short Verdict: Slightly better than the previous game. Must-have for point-and-click fans. Nice humor, interesting story, great puzzles, unique characters, hours of fun!

Overview: Chaos on Deponia is the second game in the adventure, point-and-click trilogy made by Daedelic. You control Rufus, a self-centered jerk who, more than anything, hates Deponia - some kind of a junkyard planet - and wishes to go to Elysium. Well, if you played the previous game,you know now he wants to save Deponia, too. The result is a game full of comedy, awkward moments packed with fun, and even romance.

Pros:
  • The interface is really great and easy to navigate
  • The story is interesting, packed with good quality humor, and you'll probably have lots of fun in the way
  • Good length for an adventure game
  • The puzzles are really nice and sober--the game provides you not-too-obvious hints when you interact with the world and they've really hit the perfect mark in this aspect. Also, if you need additional in-game help, you can press space to see the hotspots, which is always good as an option. You probably won't need a guide, if you can deal with just the right amount of frustration that pushes you forward.
  • Characters are really cool and fun. The main character is embarrassingly annoying, but that allows for some "role play", you can say, when you try to think like he would as you try to solve the puzzles.
  • Great voice acting
  • The 2D graphics are really amazing
  • The BGM is really awesome--specially the Huzzah songs
  • The cliffhanger for the next game is just perfect--it closes a chapter really well, but you'll want to know what happens next

Cons:
  • The game crashed a few times for me (probably 2 or 3), mostly after videos. But according to my experience, it never happens if you skip the Daedelic intro.
  • I can't say it's a huge con, but the pacing of the game is a bit weird for me. At the beginning, you're thrown in a huge area to explore and you have to deal with a lot of tasks. After that, the game becomes a lot more linear. Seems like they rushed to finish the game a little bit.

Bought on: Steam Store for R$ 4,99 (US$ 3.99 on the US store at the same time). If you don't have any of the games in the trilogy and think this game is for you, it might be a better idea to buy The Complete Journey (the full trilogy) instead.

Verdict: If you're a fan of adventures and point-and-clicks, you most definitely have to check the Deponia series! It's precious. I'm not easy to please when it comes to humor and comedy, but Deponia just manages to do it better than all other games I've played (well, maybe except for Sam & Max, imnsho). Also, like I've said, the puzzles are really smart, the story is interesting, characters are unique, and basically everything you need in an adventure game is there. Don't miss it! But make sure you start with Deponia--don't skip to Chaos on Deponia, it won't make much sense.

One of the most brutal games out there. This game is Killer!
Close to the Star Wars franchise, this game gives you the benefit of being the only person who might be able to rescue an whole planet made out of trash (hi Wall-E) - or at least escape the planet before it blows up...

You (the hero) are known by the name Rufus "Commander of Crazienesslessness" and you have not much time left to get going.

Enjoy this second memorable disaster of point&click adventure when it says "To the moon, or wherever i can flee to escape my ♥♥♥ getting blown off!"


10/10 Poki, I want your child!

This is the righteous sequel of the first episode. Clearly a really good time. It's funny, sometimes challenging (but just not too much). It seems to me it has a better balance than the first episode. One thing which is outstanding: the characters are really fleshed out and far from being empty shells. I'm rushing on the final episode. I'm expecting an "epic" (duuuuh!) ending after hours of fun.

So far the Deponia franchise is definitely keeping up appearances.

I played and reviewed the first game in the series and honestly do not remember having one bad thing to say about it. I’m glad to be able to say that the same goes for its sequel.
In the first review I said that with some point and click games it can be hard to follow the creators logic when it comes to item combination and puzzles, which more often than not, results in rummaging through a walkthrough at least once or twice and asking you’re self “how was I even supposed to get that?” but with these games it isn’t like that. It is consistently logically throughout the whole game and that definitely applies to Chaos on Deponia as well. Although I found this second game a little more challenging when it came to figuring out what to use with what, (it was either a harder game or my brain was just refusing to work, which wouldn’t be surprising) I also found it quite a bit more humorous.

The sense of humour in these games is a particular part about them that I enjoy the most. The main character is as egotistical yet loveable as ever and there’s some funny references in there that make you chuckle as you play through.

Art wise, it is a beautiful as ever. Maybe even more so than last time, you can tell there was a bit of a leap in budget for the game when you switch from the first to the second. Same goes for audio, there is a huge difference when it comes to audio, it sounds a lot clearer and sharper than before, which is a nice addition to the game as a whole.
They focus a little more on water rather than land in this one, and I really liked that. There were points during the game where I couldn’t help but just think to myself, “Wow, the graphics for the water look really good.”

Of course, I have to quickly mention the chorus singers. What would the Deponia experience be without them? I love them, they are amazing. I look forward to every song between chapters.

And lastly, the achievements which I seem to like enough to have played through this game 2 and a half times. (The half because I forgot one measly achievement on my second “achievement gathering” play through.) The achievements definitely aren’t as obvious as they were in the first one, at least that’s how it seemed to me. With the first game I managed to get most of the achievements on the first play through just from general curiosity. This one I managed to miss quite a lot, which even then, although I missed a lot more, it definitely wasn’t as hard as getting all the achievements for the first one. Anyone that has played the first one would know that there was one pesky achievement to try and get, the “Droggeljug” mode achievement. When I started Chaos on Deponia I crossed my fingers and hoped so hard that there wasn’t a similar achievement in this game, and I was in luck!

All in all it is a really fun point and click game with a lot to offer. Any fan of the genre would enjoy this franchise. I have heard that a few people didn’t enjoy it because of the main characters stuck up and self-centred ways, and believe me, when I started the franchise I felt the same. But if you can get over that first hurdle in the first game, I promise you he really starts to grow on you as he progresses and grows as a character.
I have yet to play the next one, and I have no doubt that it will tie up the franchise nicely.


TL;DR : Logical item combinations, great humour, wonderful art, engaging story, an improvement audio/graphics wise from the first one, a great way to continue the series and just generally a great game for your point and click collection. Buy the series!

First, do noy play it before playing Deponia. This is the second game in a trilogy. This game is better in every aspect than the original Deponia. Better story, funnier, faster progression. If you liked the first one, this is a must buy. BTW, after you finish this one, get the third, the best in the series.
