Reviews

“Die gute, wendungsreiche Story, die vergleichsweise komplexe Rätselstruktur, vor allem aber der brillante, allgegenwärtige Humor machen den dritten Teil zum Besten der Trilogie – und Daedalic endgültig zu einem würdigen Erben von LucasArts.”
9.5/10 – GamersGlobal

“Auf Wiedersehen, Rufus. Auf Wiedersehen, Deponia. Ich werde bestimmt auch in zwanzig Jahren noch von unserem Ausflug schwärmen und jedem davon erzählen, wie viel Spaß wir zusammen hatten. Auf Wiedersehen, euch werde ich nicht so schnell vergessen.”

“Die Dialoge, die skurrilen Charaktere und die Slapstik-Komik erreichen das Niveau von Day of the Tentacle.”

Über dieses Spiel

Mehr Chaos, mehr Zerstörung, mehr Rufus: Gleich drei Rufus(se) sorgen in der heiß ersehnten Point & Click-Adventure-Komödie Goodbye Deponia für abgedrehten Aberwitz!

Deponia wird von der Zerstörung durch den Organon bedroht, die hübsche Goal ist weg (mal wieder), und Antiheld Rufus steht sich bei allem selbst im Wege.

Dabei will Erfinder und Freigeist Rufus doch nach wie vor nur den Schrottplatz-Planeten Deponia verlassen und nach Elysium ziehen, auf dieses paradiesische, um Deponia kreisende Raumschiff der oberen Zehntausend. Goal, einst Elysianerin, in die sich Rufus unsterblich verliebt hat, scheint nach wie vor der Schlüssel zum Erfolg – beziehungsweise zum Aufzug nach oben – zu sein. Rufus‘ neuester Plan scheint endlich perfekt!

Und doch geht ganz schnell alles schief, was schiefgehen kann: Rufus verschlägt es - zunächst in Verkleidung - zu den grimmigen Organon-Beamten auf den Hochbahnkreuzer; Goal kommt abhanden. In einer zufällig entdeckten Klon-Maschine sieht Rufus seine Rettung: Eine Klon-Kopie sollte ihm weiterhelfen können. Durch einen „unerklärlichen“ Fehler kommt es jedoch zu Komplikationen und Goal entgleitet unserem „Helden“ erneut. Da steht Rufus nun vor dreierlei Problemen: Goal muss wiedergefunden werden, Rufus ist immer noch nicht in Elysium angekommen, und zudem droht der Organon Deponia mit der Zerstörung des gesamten Planeten.
Dreierlei Probleme können nur drei Rufus(se) bewältigen – und so klont sich der erfolglose Erfinder kurzerhand selbst! Mit aberwitzigen Folgen für den Spieler: In Goodbye Deponia gilt es, stellenweise alle drei Rufus(se) zu kontrollieren, und fortan gemeinsam Aufgaben zu bewältigen – obwohl Rufus sich so oft selbst im Wege steht.

Goodbye Deponia ist der krönende Abschluss der Deponia-Trilogie und Nachfolger des besten deutschen Spiels 2013 (Deutscher Computerspielpreis).
Als Trilogie erzählt die vielfach preisgekrönte Deponia-Serie drei aberwitzige Abenteuergeschichten vom Müllplaneten Deponia. Als klassische Point & Click-Adventures begeistern die Komödien sowohl eingefleischte Genre-Fans, als auch Adventure-Neulinge. Die humorige Deponia-Reihe besticht mit schönster, handgezeichneter 2D-Comic-Grafik, ist gewürzt mit sarkastischen Dialogen und jeder Menge schwarzem Humor, wurde vielfach von der Fachpresse gelobt, sowie mit vielen bedeutenden Preisen, darunter dem Deutschen Computerspielpreis und mehreren Deutschen Entwicklerpreisen, ausgezeichnet.

This is a solid continuation of the story presented in the first two games, but unfortunately a poor ending to the otherwise (mostly) excellent Deponia series. The ending is unsatisfying and leaves far too many story threads hanging to provide real closure for the story. On the other hand, it leaves things wide open for a Deponia 4, but it appears the chances of that happening at this point are very close to 0. Poor ending aside, the story was mostly great, but some of the puzzle solutions were a bit dark for my tastes. I get that Rufus is supposed to be a jerk, but some of the solutions go far beyond that.

From a technical standpoint, it's a huge step up from the earlier games. In both the earlier titles I had a lot of problems with minigames not working at all (and even a complete game breaking bug in the first game that required downloading an official savegame file to fix) but this one worked flawlessly.

The puzzle difficulty is about right (although as with any adventure game some of the solutions are so random and obtuse that you'll probably spend a significant amount of time with trial and error unless you use a guide).

Overall, I enjoyed the ride I had with the series (in spite of the ending) and can easily recommend it if you're at all interested in adventure games. Make sure to get the whole series in a discounted bundle (happens semi regularly).

When I finished the first episode of this game, I thought it was as nice as the Monkey Island series. When I finished the second episode, I thought I might dare say it was better than the Monkey Island. I just finished this episode, and I can only say Deponia is so much better than the Monkey Island.

This is my new all-time favorite adventure game.

Vom ersten Spiel dieser Serie an, war ich vollkommen begeistert. Rufus ist ein herrlicher Antiheld, den man entweder lieben oder hassen muss. Seine chaotische, egoistische und ignorante Art prägt einfach das komplette Spielerlebnis. Eine eher untypische Hauptfigur, zu der man stets gemischte Gefühle hat.

Wie auch seine Vorgänger hat "Goodbye Deponia" eine Menge zu bieten. Kniffliche Rätsel, alte Bekannte, tolle Musik und ansehnliche Kullissen. Dass auch dieser Teil mit viel Liebe gestaltet wurde ist unübersehbar. Besonders gefallen haben mir hierbei die Musikstücke, die Poki jeweils am Ende eines Kapitels gesungen hat.
Natürlich gibt es auch im dritten Teil der Reihe die ein oder anderen Rätsel, die einen zur Verzweiflung treiben können und bei denen man versucht ist den Löser zur Hand zu nehmen. Alles in allem aber bietet das Spiel viel Abwechslung, weitere, interessante Schauplätze und die wohl lang ersehnte Aufklärung, was es mit der Genetik auf sich hat.

Mit einer Menge schwarzem Humor, kecken Sprüchen, einer gesunden Portion Brain♥♥♥♥ und seiner typisch moralisch nicht ganz sauberen Keule wusste "Goodbye Deponia" vollkommen zu überzeugen und ist für mich ein gelungender Abschluss der eigentlichen Deponia-Serie. Auch das Ende, das an vielen Stellen Bestürzung auslöst, hätte meiner Meinung nach nicht gelungener sein können.

Danke Daedalic für dieses wundervolle Spielerlebnis!

I've played all three, loved every minute of them. But man, that ending killed it for me. It felt so abrupt, so pushed together. I'm truthfully just really disapointed in it. An ending of a trilogy is supposed to make you feel good, provide closer, and have you look back at all the hours you put into the game. I think Daedalic is just really great at making cliffhangers at the end of their games. If there was a 4th installation, maybe of rufus actually getting to elysium and goal then finding out that cletus was pretending the whole time , I would maybe have a better resting feeling about these games. It was still fun, although I had to look at the walkthough pretty frequently if I didn't want to lose my mind. Just wish there was more to the end.

I have never enjoyed a game so much while liking the main protagonist so little, though I will admit that by the end of this game, the third in the series, Rufus has started to grow on me (much like a fungus), and I have enjoyed seeing the development of his character played out.

This point & click puzzle game was challenging at points, while offering the option to skip some of the more involved mini-games if you are not so inclined to puzzle over them.

The comedy in this series can sometimes be a bit edgier, and maybe even a bit questionable in a few places, but the game play and storyline is overall highly entertaining and rewarding.

A morally ugly game, with an incresingly unlikable main character, and a plot that still just won't end in a satisfying way. Chasing the deponia games is a waste of your time and money.

I found it really good, that you could controll 3 characters and need to let them interact quite a bit. That made the game a little more intressting. I found the puzzles were easier than in part 2 and the jokes funny but not to heavy. Some jokes in part to were ... well.. lets say not for everyone. I liked it that they were trying to make jokes on many different kind of games, films and so on. Out of the 3 parts I actually found this one the best.
Makes me wish Ruffus never gets to Elysium and keeps always trying XD.
Will surely get the last part as well... Hussa!

Goodbye Deponia ist ein würdiger (vorläufiger) Abschluss der Trilogie. Die cleveren und vor allem unkonventionellen Rästel mischen sich mit abgefahrener Story, schrillen Charakteren, zauberhaften Schauplätzen und dem für Schaffer Poki typischen Humor. (Inklusive tolle Seitenhiebe auf alle möglichen Themenbereiche.)
Das Wichtigste: Es wird nie langweilig!
Der Schwierigkeitsgrad ist ausgewogen und die Synchronisation macht das Spiel zu einem echten Erlebnis.

OH NO. THE END IS THERE. I AM SAD NOW :( I WANT PART 4!!!! IT CANT BE THE END :( So Nr.7 Daedaldic Game done (WORLD IS GOING DOWN).

Maybe some Spoilers. CARE.

The game is like both Deponias epic, amazing, fantastic (dont want to much, to get disappointed).

The story is great and sad :(, the dialogs are great even if i not test every combination of items and things.

The extras like achievements are not so extremly good like Chaos on Deponia, but the Cameos like Super Mario, Peach and Donkey Kong are great or Movies: Twillight, Basic Instinct, Star Wars (Anakin, Imperator Robot), Mission Impossible, Fight Club, Superman, Saturday Night Fever and your Father looks a bit like Half Life 2 City 17 Master Wallace Breen fusion with Snake Plissken ( Kurt Russell John Carpenter’s Escape from New York) or only like Solid Snake/ Big Boss. There is so many things to find so play Deponia, Chaos on Deponia and Goodbye Deponia and enjoy every second. I give this title 95 % AS A POINT AND CLICK FAN (the End is okay, but i would wish a better end). Thank you for reading and hopefully have the most happiness with it or give hints how it could be better. P.S. if you dont like Point and Click games, dont play this game. Elysium (DEPONIA 4/ Sequel? RUFUS DEAD NO WAYS! ELYSIUM NEED ANSWERS! GOAL AND CLETUS NO GO!") WHERE ARE YOU`?

First of all, why are you reading the review for the third game in the series? If you are interested in the series, look at the Deponia 1 reviews or the complete trilogy and if you liked the last two game and want to have a complete experience, buy this one. K? K.

[SPOILS]
The first three chapters of the game were great, thought the whole clone thing was far-fetched at first but I ended up accepting it and it did make from some interesting puzzles later on. Speaking of “interesting puzzles” later on in the game, how about that section where you have to get a print of a “fluffy bunny” and the actual pedophile you get it from. Or perhaps the part where you have to separate Goon and June, recruiting June into a job as a “monkey” (without much to wear…) for money, brainwashing Goon for burritos which you use to keep children warm, in the open mouth of a slime monster who specializes in eating children. Oh yeah, and the shop selling rope next to a therapist’s office and load of suicide jokes that come with it. I knew Rufus was manipulative, rude, and egotistical but, damn dude! I’m fine with some dark humor but that took me by surprise. Up until this part of the series that games have been pretty PG.
I feel like the ending was fine. I would’ve really liked to see Rufus make it even though that would’ve been a somewhat boring and predictable ending. To have his character change and choose selflessness was a bold move.
Still that doesn’t quite leave me satisfied. There are still a ton of loose ends like Elysium’s inevitable crash into Deponia, the cloning factory or Cletus is posing as Rufus (for the press? Not really too sure why that is nessesary). There is a ton they could go off, after all we haven’t had a Deponia game where any puzzles take place on Elysium. Also, Rufus is not dead, he’s fallen from high up before and survive just fine and since terminal velocity is a thing and the fact that it’s Rufus It’d be pretty easy to by him surviving. But I guess he wouldn’t become a sort of martyr. Either way, I think there’s a discussion group about ideas for “Deponia 4” so you can check that out for some more interesting ideas. Sorry for being too stubborn to accept the end of a trilogy, it’s just hard not to want more closure about some events even if it’s really not necessary.

My favorite game of the trilogy is this last one, although the ending might not be satisfactory to a lot of people (I have mixed feelings about it: it's a downer , but also redeeming ). I'm not going to review it in detail, but make some generic comments about the 3 games.

The best thing in the whole series is the main character. When you think Rufus can't get crazier or more offensive, he walks the extra mile; in this one, among other things, he shows an indifference to children (well, that Rusty was a little annoying indeed)that must be shocking to most people. The way he gets to other people's nerves (specially Toni and Bozo _ I missed Wenzel ) is hilarious. And what about what he does to poor Goon and June? And the hommage to Donkey Kong?

I also love the ragged bard's appearances, introducing the chapters with well written lyrics (with very irregular metric _ reminded me of some songwriters from my country, like Jorge Ben and Edgard Scandurra). The games are really funny and the voice actors are great. The puzzles and minigames... some of them are so out there that you'll probably will have to resort to a walkthrough once in a while. The same can be said for quite a few of the achievements (specially the ones that demand that you do something really stupid for at least 10 times); I doubt someone can get all of them in a single playthrough.

If you're a fan of point and click adventures, this trilogy is a no brainer. Not a masterpiece, but very good.

I would call the last entry in the Deponia series a welcome step up from the second game, although I found the ending a bit unlikely.

I still had to bring out the walkthrough on a couple of occasions, but I would say that the quality of the puzzles is much better than it was in the second Deponia, and there's generally less clueless wandering around, having no idea what the game wants you to do. I think some of that is because it can be difficult to get into Rufus' sociopathic head: Rufus cannot be redeemed - not even counting all the chaos he caused in the first two games - his actions lead directly to the (probable) death of children and breaking up a happy couple and then selling them into slavery.

That said, overall I would call this a good final romp in the world of Deponia. I don't know that it's worth $20, but it's worth picking up on sale.

The final game in the Deponia Trilogy. The one that supposedly decides the fate of Rufus's home planet. The one that despite surprisingly offensive humor compared to the other two, somehow takes the cake for the best in the series. But it barely does so.

At first, i would've given this verdict to the second title in the series, Chaos on Deponia. That one is much more innocent and sophisticated in nature. The way the gamer gets to explore Goal's moods in her three separate personalities really helps to expand upon the plot of the series. In a sense, Deponia introduces Rufus, while Chaos on Deponia introduces Goal. These two are what got me interested in the storyline. Highly interested, in fact.

Now, let me first state a point that I rarely involve myself deeply in a game's storyline and characters, much less follow them so intensely. This is coming from an RPG fan who has ventured through the lands of Skyrim on the XBOX 360, plays the once popular MMORPG RuneScape with all its lore-induced quests almost daily, and enthuses over almost every modern rogue-like on Steam.

I may also add that the Deponia titles are the first true point-and-click games I have purchased. I look at the others and turn them down. I desire the thrill of gameplay that Skyrim or Diablo or even Binding of Isaac can give me. And yet, none of those could enthrall me as much as the Deponia series did.

At its core, this series is about a boy who chases a girl. A young, imperfect, self-centered, arrogant male, who chases the woman of his dreams, who happened to fall from the sky. Neither of these two would ever meet under normal circumstances. Everyone seems to be trying to split these two apart. The sheer fantasy of this is what originally stole my heart (and about 30 hours of my free time).

I started Goodbye Deponia with the same hope that most other players had: that there would be a happy ending. I played through roughly half the game before I sought a walkthrough. That's when I noticed the common phrase "bad ending." Naturally curious, I decided to watch other gameplay from that point on.

I spoiled the ending for myself. I was devastated that the game developers threw such a fatal twist. But yet, I continued my own playthrough. And arrived at the same ending. And was subsequently disheartened by that same ending.

But why should I give this a thumbs-up when the ending was this horrific? Simple: I wanted to know the answer to the questions. The questions that Deponia threw at us when it left. The problem is there will never be a Deponia 4. The developers have said this time and time again.

So why not create your own ending?

Yes, that's right, create your own ending. You may think how that would be possible, considering how the game only has a single path to completion. So why would you create your own ending? To hypothesize the answers to these questions and perhaps create a new ending.

Many seem to dislike this ending. I am not saying they are incorrect; in fact, I also dislike how the series ended. But it also gave me inspiration. It allowed me to dream of an alternate ending in which everyone succeeded. That is the beauty of an open ending.

The question you might ask me is, "Why should I care?" My answer is this: If you have made it this far, you can see the end for yourself. And if you dislike it and want to change it, you too can dream an alternate ending. Heck, you could write an entirely new story. We, the fans, can create an alternate, happy ending. Rather than outright complaining about how the ending to Deponia was an absolute kick in the teeth and spreading hate, why not harness that negative energy into another, alternate ending? Or a new project in general?

The ending of Goodbye Deponia was not a good one. However, it was an inspirational one. We saw our hero, Rufus, never quit in achieving his Goal, despite any and all adversity. Despite his mishaps. Despite his egotism.

He simply never gave up. And in the end...he still didn't give up. And if you have watched the ending, perhaps Rufus won't give up then, either.

This entire series can perhaps convey the message that one should never give up. It's not over until it's over. You can do it. You can create another ending. You can achieve your Goal. You can.

This game, despite its abrupt ending, controversial humor, simple puzzles (compared to the first two), rambling dialogue, and descent from innocence into madness...is the best one in the series.

I'm not saying you should buy this game, nor am I saying you should pass. I am simply describing a feeling of inspiration. If you want another opinion, read some of the other reviews. Read both positive and negative. Judge for yourself whether or not you want a poor ending. Watch some footage on YouTube. Heck, buy the first two titles, or the Complete Journey Edition, to see for yourself whether or not it is worth the trauma to continue the storyline for yourself.

All I am saying is no matter what, resist the urge to give up, and achieve your Goal.


P.S. Why is this review not in Deponia: Complete Journey Edition? Well, I don't have that version. I just have the three standalone titles.

Sadly I have to give this game a thumbs down! It is really disappointing for a fan of the series. Yes, the game on the outside looks much like the other two games did. As I began to play the game there were a number of scenes that were very controversial in my mind that turned the once known light hearted humor into some very dark humor. This destroyed the story for me throughout the entire game and even the ending that I thought would be a good closure for the series way was not. I was left with more questions than I had for Deponia or even Chaos on Deponia (And yes it has been said that Poki does not plan on making a 4th game, something that I am actually thankful for). I guess many of the other elements to the game were similar to the first two, but in some ways I felt like the game designers tried too hard to make this out shine the first two, which ended up leading them to a pile of garbage! I still recommend the first game and the second for that matter. Unfortunately they made the second game like most games and movies that come in trilogies, where the story is intentionally left wide open in the second installment. And while all of the games appear to have some loose ends, the first game was clearly my favorite and the best ending of the three. So in the words of the narrator.

"Huzzah, just go play the first!"

This game is so frustrating on so many levels for it is very challenging to advance with the game. It took me more time than the first two Deponia games combined to finish. And I even replayed both gameplays! While I did enjoy the puzzles, I absolutely despised having to go through the agonisingly e n d l e s s dialogues. I progressed very little with the story that I considered myself lucky I stumbled upon random items, accidentally combine the items, even had to unintentionally switch the items in the inventory between the Rufuses. I admit I had to (constantly) look up walkthroughs to progress with the game.

The 3rd Deponia isn't as enjoyable as the 1st Deponia in terms of gameplay and storyline. In the first game, you're on board with the story of this egotistical narcissistic self-proclaimed "hero" saving his home and envisioning his life on some flying utopian city but in the third game, the story changes in a way that cheapens the efforts of the earlier games. The focal story is there: Rufus still needs to save Deponia from its impending doom but introducing the character Hermes into the story as their “creator” wasn't as meaningful as intended. It makes everything seem flexible; you can clone literally anyone. If you can cheat death by cloning, surely you can cheat doomsday by crafting another crummy Deponia-esque world.

I was curious how Rufus and Goal were going to protect Deponia, since the two games have been relentlessly trying to accomplish that. So why not own the third game as well? At the start, I was neutral about the 3rd instalment, however the game drags on, and it just became repetitive, monotonous, and tiresome. Nevertheless, I actually liked the unorthodox ending. It shows Rufus’ development from a self-centred egomaniac to a somewhat altruistic noble hero.

5/10 for gameplay – too much dialogue and hidden items but good puzzles (puzzles were simple enough to solve); 5/10 for story – did not fancy this Hermes and the cloning factory but has a nice enough ending to conclude the whole trilogy. Overall 5/10 – Kind of on the fence with this last one. While the first two were a lot more enjoyable than this, "Goodbye Deponia" still has some decent puzzles and ended the story on unconventional but refreshing terms.

The final episode in the Deponia series, pushing the series into a final and satisfying conclusion. While not as strong as the first game, if you've followed the series this far, you will not be disappointed by the conclusion.

As is to be expected from Deponia, you follow the adventures of Rufus, an unlikable individual who manages to break everything around him, as he tries to now save Deponia from being blown up, maintain a barely healthy relationship with Goal, and not kill everyone around him. The recurring characters are who they are, and if you like or don't like them, this game won't change anything, but that will mean the difference in if you laugh or cry when Rufus faces tragedy. I don't like Rufus and laughed at him. I did like his flawed humanity throughout the series though.

The writing and animation has improved a lot since Chaos on Deponia. This also follows the translation where a lot more effort and reviewing has been put into it. The developers knew they didn't want their series to fall down on its final moments and put the extra effort into making sure the final game went well. Some of the jokes can fall from jovial to borderline offensive. As an example, you break up an inter-racial couple and make the black woman in the couple take a job replacing an organ grinder's monkey. Some of the events are engineered to make you feel less positive about Rufus or yourself. While most of the game doesn't skirt that level of unfriendly, your mileage may vary with some of the humor.

The puzzles follow the same blend of narrative and dialogue puzzles they have in the past. The difficulty at the start is not too bad, with the game reaching a high peak somewhere toward the middle. Once you reach a certain point, the game rushes to the conclusion with the difficulty of the puzzles easing off and they become little more than pauses or intermissions in the narrative. Much like the Chaos on Deponia, the game does use some puzzles which cause you to think outside the box and outside the conventions of normal adventure games, with tone puzzles, creative use of cursors and positioning, managing multiple characters, and plenty of red herrings. So, you may find some of them easy to do if you think outside the box or you may get frustrated and have to consult a walkthrough at some points.

I've praised Daedelic's gameplay adjustments enough to not have to mention them. They are here as well, you have the mouse-wheel inventory, the hot keys, and the highlightable interactable objects. They all make the game much smoother and don't bog down the game or story in the minutia of inventory clicking or mouse searching.

While I don't think they've recaptured the magic of Deponia, they don't have to in a conclusion. This is a satisfying ending to a memorable adventure game series which, through it's ups and downs, kept me entertained for a long while.

GOODBYA DEPONIA ist ein Ende für ein Triologie die nicht enden darf!
Nach DEPONIA und CHAOS AUF DEPONIA hat man Rufus einfach schon so ins Herz geschlossen, dass der dritte Teil der angekündigten Triologie eigentlich nur einen negativen Punkt hat: Es ist das Ende!
Das Spiel besticht wieder durch durch bekannten Sachen, neue Ideen, unerwarteten Endungen und macht einfach nichts falsch. Mehr ist nicht zu sagen.

Aber: GOODBYE DEPONIA ist halt das Ende.. [Daedalic: Macht doch einfach weiter, hmm?]

Das nenne ich ja mal ein Denkwürdiges Ende. Ich habe nun leider auch schon alle drei Teile der Deponia Trilogie durchgespielt. Und ich betone hier "leider", weil ich nur sehr ungern von Deponia loslasse. Die ganze Geschichte um Rufus und Deponia ist einfach nur genial und hinreißend erzählt. Mich hat noch kein Adventure so in seinen Bann gezogen, wie die Geschichte um Rufus, Goal und Co. Ich hätte nur gerne noch ein paar Antworten gehabt. Das Ende hat mich auch völlig überrascht. Ich hätte niemals gedacht, dass mich ein so humorvolles Spiel so zum nachdenken anregen kann. Ich hoffe, dass wir hier vielleicht noch einmal den ein oder anderen Protagonisten irgendwann mal wieder sehen. Mein Dank gilt dem tollen Geschichtenschreiber und dem gesamten Daedalic-Team, dafür, dass ich mich für einige Stunden aus dem Alltag entziehen konnte und diese tolle Geschichte erleben durfte. Das Ende hat auch bei mir viele Fragen aufgeworfen, aber dennoch für, mich eine sensationelle Reise durch die Welt eines Chaoten.

Von wegen: "Müll, Müll und noch mehr Müll"! Ich sag nur "Hussa, das Spiel ist perfekt"!!! :D


Also mal gleich vor weg, ich habe die komplette Deponia-Reihe durchgespielt und es ist einfach nur der helle Wahnsinn! Auch wenn ich mich jetzt ganz schön weit aus dem Fenster lehne, behaupte ich das sogar Gamer die eigentlich nichts mit Point & Click-Adventures am Hut haben, auf Ihre Kosten kommen würden und viel Freude an diesem Spiel hätten!

Kurzum, die Story ist genial, die Witze und Charaktere sind der absolute Burner. Im Laufe des Spiels treffen wir auf Berühmtheiten wie Gronkh oder Smudo, von den Fanta vier. Es gibt Anspielungen auf verschiedene Filme/Trickfilme wie zum Bsp. Inspector Gadget. Auch die Helden verschiedener Spieleklassiker wie Super Mario oder Donkey Kong wurden verewigt. Die Rätzel sind mal einfach und mal schwer und zudem sind auch noch Mini-Games zu lösen! Selbst die musikalische Untermalung von Jan Müller-Michaelis sorgt für einen Ohrwurm nach dem anderen.

Unser Held Rufus hat immer einen coolen Spruch auf lager, und wenn man denkt, jetzt geht es eigentlich nicht mehr schlimmer, setzt er noch einen oben drauf! Somit muss man sich nicht wundern, wenn man im Spiel auch mal selber von Rufus auf die Schüppe genommen wird.

Das einzig Negative an der Deponia-Reihe ist, das es leider keinen vierten Teil gibt und ich das Ende schweren Herzens, mit Wehmut ertragen musste. Zumal ich mir, wenn schon denn schon, das Ende irgendwie anders vorgestellt habe! Bleibt nur zu hoffen, dass sich das Entwicklerstudio Daedalic einen Ruck gibt und uns eine Fortsetzung liefert! Schließlich sind alle guten Dinge vier! ;)

10/10 Super Spiel!
Grafik wie immer herrausragend und mit einem tollen Charme!
Deponia 1&2 haben mich schon begeistert aber der dritte Teil war ein krönender Abschluss. Der Rufus des dritten Teiles übertrifft seine Vorgänger noch einmal, vorallem was seinen Charakter angeht. Er ist und bleibt ein echtes Schwein! :D
Die Minigames und Puzzles haben mich oft auf die Probe gestellt doch ich habe alles gemeistert ;) Nicht zu schwer, nicht zu einfach, da haben die Entwickler den perfekten Punkt getroffen. Das Ende ist zwar zum Teil traurig, enthält aber auch eine tolle Lektion. Ich spreche eine deutliche Kaufempfehlung aus, vorallem da das Spiel momentan im Angebot ist.
