“A cool story with many twists, relatively complex puzzles, but most of all the brilliant, omnipresent humor make Goodbye Deponia the best part of the trilogy - and Daedalic finally a worthy heir of LucasArts.”
9.5/10 – GamersGlobal

“Goodbye Rufus and goodbye Deponia. Even 20 years from now, I certainly will remember our trip fondly, telling everyone what a good ride we've had. You will be missed, but not forgotten. Farewell!”

About This Game

More chaos, more destruction, more Rufus. Not one, not two, but three Rufuses cause all kinds of crazy mayhem in the long-awaited adventure comedy Goodbye Deponia!

The Organon plans the destruction of Deponia, the lovely Goal has (once again) disappeared, and anti-hero Rufus just can't seem to stop getting in his own way.

All inventor and free spirit Rufus wanted to do was to get off the junkyard planet of Deponia and move to Elysium, the paradise orbiting Deponia as a spaceship reserved for the highest echelons of society. Goal, the ex-Elysian girl that Rufus has fallen head over heels for, still seems to be the key to his endeavor...and to the elevator that will get him to space. Finally, Rufus has come up with a seemingly perfect plan.

And yet, everything that could possibly go wrong suddenly does go wrong. Rufus finds himself (initially in disguise) on a highway cruiser amongst stern-faced officials of the Organon, while Goal goes missing. When Rufus stumbles upon a cloning machine, he believes to have found his way out. A clone copy is supposed to help him out of his predicament. But an "inexplicable" error causes complications and Goal slips from our hero's reach once again. Now, he has to solve three major problems: He needs to find Goal again, reach Elysium and prevent the destruction of the entire planet of Deponia by the hand of the Organon.

Three problems that only three Rufuses could solve – and thus, the luckless inventor decides to clone himself! This leads to crazy ramifications for the player: In Goodbye Deponia, the player occasionally needs to control all three Rufuses, using them to complete tasks together – despite Rufus stumbling over himself so often.

Goodbye Deponia is the epic conclusion to the Deponia trilogy and sequel to the best German game of 2013 (German Computer Game Awards).
The award-winning Deponia series comprises of three wacky tales of adventure from the junkyard planet Deponia. These classic point & click romps not only delight comedy fans and adventure veterans, but also newcomers to the genre. The humorous Deponia series impresses with beautiful, hand-drawn 2D comic graphics, sarcastic dialogues and plenty of black humor. It has received numerous press awards, among them the German Computer Game Award (Deutscher Computerspielpreis) and many other German developer awards.

The game itself is a masterpiece, the vast majority of the weak aspects in the previous two parts were solved in this one. I'd even say that it's better than Loom or Full Throttle for instance.

Now, the ending is just... I really wasn't prepared for that; I honestly would have preferred another ending or a twist after those events (or a continuation in a fourth part, i.e. not Deponia Doomsday).

Still, the game is great, just prepare in advance for a depressing ending.

Same like for part 2:

"Same characters from part 1...
Same humour (yep - different words BUT it is still "Rufus humour")...

And most important = it's just too hard... story usualy have not any logic. So if you cant read the mind of developers - you cant "solve" it. + stupid mathematical riddles. Yep - you can "skip" mathematical puzzles... you can use guides-walkthroug... but in point-and-click games - it will kill all fun.

If you want good P.A.C. game - better take "Night of the rabbit" or "The book of unwritten tales" 1-2 part."

No, no, Hell to the No!

The first two Deponia games are pretty good. Sure the main character is a total unlikable ♥♥♥ and the humor is crude but it's a guilty pleasure type of humor. Those games also have actual puzzles to solve.

This...game starts out in the same flavor as the other two but half way through, it totally goes off the rail. The humor isn't only crude, it's downright insulting. The puzzles are nothing be sheer annoyances. It's like the developers wanted to just be asses to their customers just to complete the experience.

Finally, the ending has got to be one of the absolute worst in gaming history. Especially if you spent the time to complete the other two, it will be a total let down.

Play the first two and save yourself the pain of this one.

This is a review for the Deponia series (Deponia, Chaos on Deponia, and Goodbye Deponia).

tl;dr
A very lovable game, a lot of good humor, good characters. I fell in love with the world very quickly. Game is tricky at times but that can be expected from a point and click adventure.

The goofy cartoon graphics and humour are a delight but the "realism" of characters is the real gem. I highly recommend the Deponia series and this game in the franchise is no exception.

Wow. Absolutely stunning. For people who want to miss out on the rest of my baller review, here's a TLDR:

Overall: 8/10

Pros:
-the story is top notch, on a basic narrative level the game does a very good job
-manages to mix up the gameplay in a lot of surprising ways, which is especially notable because it's a point and click
-the art is really fleshed out
-characters are well developed, each with their own unique quirks and attitudes
-the soundtrack and voice acting is reeally well done

Cons:
-the game suffers from a few problems that many point and click adventure games share
-gameplay can get pretty confusing, especially in the Thid Act
- the game can be slow at times, especially when trying to figure out some of the more involved puzzles.

Okay, so time for the rest of the review. First off, I have to say that I am a really big Daedalic fan. These guys are easily the one of the most consistent producers of high quality point and click adventure games in modern video game meta. They're really consistent with their quality and have a really good line up of games. Also, they crank out games faster than Jeb Bush dropped out of the presidential race, which is a really good rate to be at.

Having said that, Goodbye Deponia, is no exception. It is the third entry into the Deponia series, and serves as a type of conclusion to the story, as the fourth entry serves more as a nostalgic revisitation of the characters rather than a canonical entry. Goodbye Deponia is a really great conclusion to the series and has a lot of good qualities, and the cool thing is, you DO NOT need to have played the past two entries in the series to enjoy this game. Although they're necessary to fully enjoy the game's little references and homages to past titles, the game does a lot of things very well that allow it to stand on its own. The game features a lot of minigames and untraditional puzzles that require a lot of thinking outside the box. All of these minigames, however, do have a "skip" option for all you purists out there. A big feature of all the Deponia games, especially this game, is the constant quality of the art style, soundtrack, and voice acting. Every single artistic aspect of the game is polished to near perfection; the attitude of the game is greatly portrayed through the characters' dialogue. Each one has unique qualities that make the game pop. The game, however, has its downfalls. As a point and click adventure game, it executes the formula very well. There are a few very confusing instances, especially within the Third Act, that I needed to use a guide for. Also, the game ends in a satisfying yet open ended way, leaving the player with satisfactory feelings, while leaving much still open to player interpretation. Although great, this game still had flaws and areas of improvement. But then again, games that don't have those things are few and far between. As such, I give Goodbye Deponia a solid 8/10.

The final chapter of developer Daedalic Entertainment's award-winning point-and-click adventure series is sadly coming to a close. Goodbye Deponia completes the trilogy following the exploits of one of the most hilarious antiheroes ever to grace the gaming scene. Since the first game, Rufus has failed in every attempt to escape the garbage world of Deponia and enter a life of luxury on the floating spaceship city called Elysium. Does Goodbye Deponia finally see our "hero" achieve his dream? Well, no spoilers here. You'll have to finish the story and see for yourself.

What I can tell you is that Goodbye Deponia keeps the exact gameplay formula from the past games, but cranks up the insanity to stratospheric levels. I wouldn't have thought it possible after some of the jaw-dropping moments found in the second game of the series, Chaos on Deponia. After all, we saw Rufus offer a shoe to a homeless person to eat, purposely get our leading lady Goal struck by lightning, and knowingly had baby dolphins chopped up and processed into cans of tuna.

I kept wondering whether Goodbye Deponia would finally see Rufus mature, and even find his moral center. Nope. Rufus is just as egotistical, self-congratulatory, and selfish as ever, with a horseshoe shoved firmly up his ♥♥♥♥. At times, you'll be ashamed at yourself for laughing at some of his pranks, but it's impossible not to. The scriptwork in this final chapter is absolutely flawless, and delivered pitch perfect by the veteran cast of voice actors.

But it's not just Rufus and his antics that deliver a gold-star performance. The entire ensemble is crafted with loving care, each character with their own personality that after two games you will have found yourself emotionally attached to: Doc as the master tinkerer that Rufus is always trying to belittle, Bozo and his pacifist nature, even Rufus' snobbish "twin" Cletus, whom you're never quite sure who's side he's on. And lest we forget Goal, whom Rufus tries to charm to no end, who is more adorable than ever... you'll see why.

As a point-and-click adventure game, Goodbye Deponia follows all the standard conventions. Gameplay consists of jaunting through areas, searching for items to pick up and interact with, with puzzles scattered around that require solving in order to advance the story. However, the Deponia series crashes through conventional realism barriers due to the nature of the story and the idea that any item can be plausibly accepted by the player since the action occurs on a planet comprised of trash. Thus, Goodbye Deponia requires you to think outside of the box... way outside. Any obtainable object can be placed in Rufus' coat pockets, no matter the size, whether it's a living creature or an open flame. These objects can sometimes be combined to create new items.Characters help at impasses by retaining any conversation options that provide hints to solving the particular dilemma.

Visually, Goodbye Deponia is as gorgeous as ever. It's not so much a technical improvement over the last two games, but rather a clear sense of style and creativity that comes from Daedalic's artist, and the dedication that goes into each hand-drawn scene. The background animations in each area depict the dilapidation of the garbage world, although the actual travel of each character has set animations that at times feels out of place.

The music and sound effects feel genuine to the backdrop. Everywhere you go there are oddly constructed gadgets and poorly maintained appliances that fizzle, rattle, and chug along. The ambient music is filled with industrial-style synthesized beats, all very appropriate to the scene. And of course, the break in between each chapter is one I eagerly look forward to, where our banjo-playing bard of a narrator regales us with a jovial recap of the action and the manly chorus closes it out, followed by an epic orchestral climax

I apologize for anyone hoping for more tidbits about the story itself, but as the final chapter in a cult-inducing series, I have little doubt that fans will want to experience each sidesplitting moment of Goodbye Deponia for themselves. It is a great finish to a truly original tale, and a trilogy that anyone not already familiar with the series should absolutely purchase and enjoy. The only tragedy of Goodbye Deponia is that it truly is the final farewell to all our friends on Deponia.

If you've played the first two parts of the Deponia trilogy you pretty much know what you can expect. Except it's even better this time: three times the Rufuses, three times the chaos. Do yourself a favour and get this game if you've played the first two, because it's not only the grand finale, it's probably also the best game in the series. If you HAVEN'T played the first two... Well, go read my recommendations for Deponia and Chaos on Deponia instead then!

EDIT: After some consideration, I think I should make special mention of that one specific part of the game. If you've played it you know the one. It's the one joke that is just absolutely not funny, and where I think the devs definitely stepped over the line of what is okay and what is not. It left a sour taste on what is otherwise a funny series. However, I still recommend it for all those other moments.

Definitely I recommend playing the first and second game of this series, but not this one. Although I enjoyed the puzzles, the absurds Rufus did on Goodbye Deponia, the end was absolutely terrible. I just stared the computer screen amazed how a terrible ending can ruin the whole series.

Ugh.

Let me just say this now to begin with. The game itself is definitely worth playing. It was a fantastic title and a fitting piece of media for those that played the other two titles. I'm giving it a no in recommendation because of the ending.

This is similar to Mass Effect 3. The creators' desire to have this out-of-the-box ending ended up ruining my love for the whole franchise. Instead of giving us the tv tropes ending we were hoping for, they decided it'd be better to have this open-ended depressing conclusion that makes you want to eat fecal matter to wash out the taste.

Should you play it as a fan of Deponia? It depends. Are you playing it for the humor and the puzzles and don't really care for an ultimate happy conclusion? If so go for it. If you're like me and got invested in Rufus' and Goal's story, then do yourself a favor and ignore this.

The Deponia Trilogy is perhaps one of the best point-and-click adventure games I've played in a long time. Great comedy, fun characters and several genuinely heart-felt moments, all wrapped together in a well-animated package.

Definitely a must have if you're ever curious about the genre. =3

HUZZAH, GOOD THINGS COME IN THREES!

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

Overview: Goodbye Deponia is the third and last 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, including the new feature of being able to control 3 characters during a fairly long part of the game, switching between them and exchanging items
  • 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, probably the longest in the series
  • The puzzles are really nice in general--the game provides you a few not-too-obvious hints when you interact with the world. Also, if you need additional in-game help, you can press space to see the hotspots, which is always good as an option. I think you can do it without a guide, if you can deal with some frustration that helps 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

Cons:
  • Definitely the least playtested/polished of the three games. There are a few minor mistakes in the speech, subtitles, translation, and even some small not-game-breaking bugs, like when I manage to make Rufus remain small when moving closer to the camera
  • The puzzle scenes close to the ending dragged, and they kinda lose the hand on controlling the climax, and, ultimately, the ending was not much satisfying
  • There were some parts of the game that didn't seem well thoght-out. For instance, you can go through a long quest in which you have to use something like 6 or 7 items in order to obtain another item, which you still don't know the use for. Others were sheer trial and error that didn't make much sense to me, even in hindsight (but the overall balance is still positive)

Bought on: Steam Store for R$ 6,24 (US$ 4.99 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, then go through Chaos on Deponia before playing Goodbye Deponia, or else it won't make much sense.

“You should be glad I'm with you to point out all your stupid mistakes.”

Goodbye Deponia is a point & click adventure and the final part of a trilogy by the company Daedalic Entertainment with emphasis on character and story development.

Atmosphere & presentation:

+ Original comic look creates an interesting world.
+ Appealing musical background.
+ Balanced difficulty level of puzzle sections.

o Complex puzzles can be skipped.

- The sometimes illogical item combinations can lead to a break in immersion.

Characters & story:

+ Humorous depiction of the protagonist and side characters.
+ Witty dialogues and unconventional conversation options.
+ Amusing plot development based on split personalities.
+ High quality voice acting.

o Based on the German origin of the game, some of the jokes are lost in translation.

Summary:

Daedalic Entertainment has been able to forge a series with cult status. Great comedy, fun characters and several heart-felt moments, all wrapped together in a well-animated package bringing the trash-trilogy to a worthy end.

Great episode in terms of pure content as usual rich of humor and interesting puzzles. Unfortunately as the serie continue the light humor and stupid "collateral damage" of the main character slowly turns into nasty action with an escalation of dramatic consequences. What started as an ego-driven idiot that was just an annoyance for the people around him is slowly turned into an evil a-hole, that you have no choice but to play as intended. The conseguence is that you will feel like an a-hole inside a nightmare that you cant stop. The funny mood of the series is just ruined. The ending rewards you by slapping you in the face. I wish somebody told me to stop at the second episode and just imagine the rest of the story, so I'm giving you this avice.
