About the 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.

"His name is rufus and that's the trufus" (c) - Rufus

Excellent and pretty easy Point&Click-Adventure. If you like good story telling and humour based on a slapstick AND sophisticated level, then play this trilogy. You'll not regret it. (Even if I only played Deponia and Chaos on Deponia so far).

Like Monkey Island if the protagonist was an idiot.

So like Monkey Island, it's still funny and more German than Monkey Island though.

Chaos on Deponia (unfortunately) still follows Rufus - my most hated main character in any game series - treading unnecessary grounds between the series' first and third instalment. The plot this time around is more or less exactly the same as in Deponia: Rufus attempts to get to Elysium, hurts Goal in the process, saves Goal, then they both arrive at some sort of 'emotional finale'. The only actual tie-in with the overall story is the ridiculously unlikely romance between the two leads. There was plenty of opportunities to allow for some character development to take place here, but the developers must have thought Rufus is perfect the way he is. I doubt I am alone in thinking otherwise.

The comedy found within is more miss than hit, usually revolving around racial and gender stereotypes, slapstick, and Rufus' narcissism. Characters you meet are one-dimensional walking punchlines, only they lack actual punchlines. Often, Rufus will be painted in a good light while characters opposing him - specifically women - are seen as ♥♥♥♥♥y obstructions in a great man's journey. When that fails, crude humour comes into play in the form of dead baby animals and belittling of others. I picture the developers staring longingly through the windows of residence Monkey Island, soaking in the rain while contemplating ringing the door bell and asking for worthwhile ideas. A shame they instead resorted to the trash bin.

That being said, if you are a fan of point-and-click games, you should definitely consider giving it a shot. The gameplay is good fun, the art is gorgeous, and the English voice actors usually play their roles very well. The enjoyable musical numbers separating chapters are still present, but it's now even more painfully obvious they struggled to fit the lyrics to the songs. Sadly, all of this is not enough to warrant anything other than a red thumb.

In summary: If you find it appealing to control the bane of human existence sort of bumble from one mildly logical puzzle to the next while listening to him comment on his surrounds with punchable smugness for 8-9 hours, then by all means give this a try. I can promise if you did not like the first game, you won't find anything here to make you want to see trilogy's inevitable end.

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!

For anyone interested, my review for the first Deponia game is here:
