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.

----------This is my review account, because the low playtime.

+ absolutely harmonious cartoon and scrap world
+ threat of organon more tangible
+ time for a revolution!

+ several storylines

Game Size:
+ good playtime
+ more locations that are better connected to each other
+ extras
- but be meager
- no replay value

Compared to the already magnificent anyway predecessor is chaos on Deponia complex, longer, more exciting application richer and even a tad funny. Chaos on Deponia is not a brain-eating monster mystery, it does not provide a brutal sledgehammer humor and no genre revolutionary innovations. In addition to the timeless slapstick and convince kind design especially the fine and cryptic notes in the dialogues and stories that bring adult players to throw herself away laughing. Chaos on Deponia is a solid adventure that fans of LucasArts-style comedies will likely enjoy.

Score: 86 / 100

If you played the first one, http://store.steampowered.com/app/214340/ I only need say "Huzzah huzzah one more time" The sequel to carries on in the same vein.
If you're new to the series. This is the middle part of a trilogy, you should start at the start or you'll totally make a mess of things like time and space, you might even destroy a world! (actually, Rufus being Rufus, you're likely to do all of those things anyway.)

Daedalic you've done it again. Chaos on Deponia is another sucessful installment of the Deponia series. What makes this game so good is the fact that they stay true to the style of the game, but are able to add enough layers to make it a great game on its own. It was another opening scene that grabbed my attention (getting the hammer). I was back on another crazy adventure with Ruuuuufus. The witty humor, amazing storyline, new great tunes, and the ever so amazing puzzles make for hours of enjoyment. To expound a bit more, the humor brought in funny stuff from the first game, but always had a fresh twist to it. The story was the same way. If you have watched the trailers you know that Rufus is trying to get off Deponia, but the way the story was written, you hardly remember that is the goal. I never felt like the game was trying to outdo the first one. So although this game is full of Chaos, it was actually planned out very well!

"Huzzah, one more game to buy!"

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.

  • 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

  • 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.

Despite giving the first Deponia game a tentative "thumbs up" I simply cannot recommend the second game in the trilogy. Chaos on Deponia could easily have been removed from the trilogy since it does almost nothing to further the plot of the series. It features some incredibly obtuse puzzles, and a huge number of locations to explore straight from the beginning, making it confusing to know where you should be going and what you should be doing.

My main gripe with all the Deponia games (outside of the terrifically unlikable main character, Rufus) is the gratuitous amount of completely pointless, filler dialogue you have to slog through just to complete simple tasks. Nearly every character you meet will supply you with 6+ dialogue options which will each spawn at least 15 lines of completely inane banter that does absolutely nothing to further the story or even provide mild entertainment. This isn't quality dialogue, like in older LucasArts games, where you actually want to click every option. Even if you ignore most of the extraneous dialogue options, often just trying to accomplish tasks will result in Rufus droning on and on and on with his signature, humorless commentary. It doesn't help that his voice is about as fun to listen to as a nursery full of teething babies with diaper rash. By the end of the game I was skipping through most of the dialogue since it added zero value to the story.

The only real point to play Chaos on Deponia is if you already own the trilogy and want to play the games in order. If not, don't bother and instead pick up an adventure game that's actually good, like one of the Special Edition Monkey Island games (which, despite people's insistence on comparing them to the Deponia series, are actually nothing alike, apart from sharing a genre - and that's a good thing).

Chaos on Deponia continues the adventures of Rufus and Goal. The sequel has a lot of nicely done puzzles, an amazing soundtrack, and great character development. The humour is even better than in the first game, and it's basically impossible to laught at least once every 5 minutes.
Gameplay: It's a Point and Click adventure game, you walk around the Floating Black Market, and need to do various asks by the big number of your friends (Or foes). They can sound simply, but you might have to do a lot of walking to do it. You collect items as you play, and you either have to give them to someone, combine it with another item, or put it somewhere. And as you play on, you have to solve puzzles which require a lot of thinking, but are really well made, and fun to solve. If you're very bad at puzzles, then don't worry. The game allows you to skip puzzles if you want. The gameplay gets a 10/10.
Soundtrack: The soundtrack is really amazing, it fits with the locations you are currently in, and the instruments sound like the surroundings (Ex. You're near a lot of junk, and the music is done from pots being hit, etc.) And they executed it incredibly well. Another 10/10.
Characters: You play as Rufus, which needs to save Deponia from being up by Cletus, and also find Goal and fix her Brain Implant which got split into three parts: Spunky Goal. Lady Goal, and Baby Goal. While you play, you need to make her every personality agree to go to the Doc, which can combine all of the personalities into one. You get a remote which switches between the three personalities, and you need to use it to your advantage. Rufus has apparently "Changed" But he's still the same, old, genius. He's extremely funny, he still makes a lot of mistakes, and still thinks Bozo is a pirate.

The game is really incredible, and I extremely loved every single bit of it. If you loved the first game, definitely get this. You won't regret it.
Final Game Rating: 11/10. I look forward to buying the third game.

Let me start off by saying that I am new to point-and-click games. I bought the Deponia trilogy when it went on sale for $14 on greenmangaming. Worth? I think so. I really liked the story because it has it's funny moments. But I suppose because I am new to this genre, I would often find myself stuck and wondering what do next. If it wasn't for online walkthroughs I would never have completed this game. But after completing it with much help, I'm glad I picked it up. It was fun, memorable, and something that I am not used to playing. I suppose trying something new was what made this game refreshing for me. I would recommend it for that reason alone. Buy if on sale.

Chaos on Deponia is the 2nd game of the Deponia Trilogy.

Pros: Same humor, great animation, beautiful background art, entertaining details hidden in many scenes, good voice acting, good soundtrack. You can skip the puzzles. You can double-click to fast travel through scenes.

Cons: Puzzles are still completely wacky. It sounds as if they changed voice actors for Rufus (english version). That really bugged me for the first couple of hours.

Summary: You should definitely play this game if you played the first one.

- Storytelling and humourous writing is still on par first the first game.
- The artwork, this time featuring entirely different locales (plus being able to travel), is great.
- There's a nice little catching-up scene that's introduces that quackiness of the game and the mentality of the protagonist.
- There's a scene where you can actually die! That was funny.


- Rufus' personality became somewhat annoying this time around. I was hoping for some sort of character growth after the ending of the first game. Just really hard to imagine why Goal would take a liking to him.
- Overall, the puzzles are a bit more convoluted this time around - poorly-explained minigames, and some non-sensical puzzles. And a cringing one involving dolphins.
- Inventory was bugged (you have to scroll up to to bring down the inventory).
- A buggy achievement.
- Weird animation slowdown in Outside Doc's Workshop. Had to open the main menu then close or alt+tab to get rid of the slugginess.
- A lot more noticeable subtitling mismatch and delayed sound effects.

Rufus finally gets the girl and i don't know if to laugh or cry. He can be a real jerk sometimes. Toni is hot. Spunky Goal is hot. Donna is adorable. Bozo's bambina is a charming lady. I love that game better than the first one.

Second part of an awesome gmae series Deponia. Funny dialogues, great plot and graphics are only a few of pros of this game.
The only cons are achievements (they are really bugged) so if anybody wants to get help just use achievement guide made by MASTAN (http://steamcommunity.com/sharedfiles/filedetails/?id=121160313) and see comments. To get Pin-up Goal you can use my save (everything is in a comment to MASTAN's guide).

I'll try to review this game in list format.
Good things:
-voice acting
-crazy and fun (crazy fun?) characters
-creative and unusual item combos
-lots of hidden jokes
Bad things
-the dolphin puzzle at the end is very frustrating
-it's too short -(but then sadly many adventure games are) - took me approx. 9h
- there are some graphics problems
- the plot is funny, but its humor makes it convoluded
- like the plot, the ending doesn't carry any weight, it's very forgettable
- there are problems with some of the achievements

All in all, I'd say that Chaos on Deponia is a solid game.
It's not ideal, but it is fun to play and well worth getting.
Btw if you ask around on the forum, you should be able to get a discount coupon easily.

Buyer beware!

Chaos on Deponia is a great game in a great series but it has been broken by its developers.

I got halfway through it and then they released a patch which rendered all previous save games unplayable (random speech in a foreign language would play in a constant loop wherever you go). This was in 2013. Despite numerous, highly-populated threads on the Steam forums, Daedalic never fixed the bug.

So eventually I started the game again, played all the way from the beginning back to where I left off, and started making progress again. Then, I don't know, but they must have released another patch. As of now, the game will boot up but it will crash whenever you try to start or continue from the main menu. Not even completely uninstalling and downloading again has fixed this problem.

The only conclusion which can come from all of this is that Daedalic are fantastic game makers who are absolute imbeciles when it comes to the technical details of releasing and supporting their product. I've played Deponia 1 and half of 2, and I bought Deponia 3 in anticipation of completing the story. If you can get them to actually run then you will have a blast - all those other positive reviews are right on the money. Just pray that they never patch it because odds are good that it will ruin everything.

The second of the series. Honestly these additions (chapters?) should have just been a massive expansion, very little of the gameplay was changed as far as I can tell. Not a bad thing, just an observation since the story does continue directly where it left off.

I actually disliked this one the most out of the series mainly because it revolved around a single location with sectors. This meant a LOT of retracing steps and moving back and forth. It became tiring and made some of the puzzles mundane or nonsensical because you're basically re-using the same stuff over and over again.

The story was still solid here though, and the voice acting had improved significantly. Characters had deeper and more bizarre personalities. Overall if you liked the first one then play this one so you'll understand the third.

I recommend all three Deponia games to any fan of the genre or anyone thinking of trying the genre. The puzzles, I think, are engaging, even if on the easy side (neither a good nor bad thing).

The environment, characters, story, voice acting, and soundtrack are all entertaining and memorable. The acting, artwork, and music are all AAA/world-class. As with any play-once/interactive fiction game, I recommend it at deep (75%+) discount.

I love the artwork, the music, the characters and the user friendly point and click approach. This game is longer than the previous one in the franchise (names Deponia) which is also a plus. I bought this game when it was on sale and I had more fun than I would expect for the price I paid.

-Characters, story line, music, dialogue, point and click (can play using only a mouse).
-The art is amazing.
-About 10h of game play if you read everything and complete all the puzzles.

-I wish it could be longer (I really love this game).
