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 Series Continues!

Deponia has been great, from start to finish. Which is something I’m happy to be able to say. There is nothing worse than a franchise that gets progressively worse the more sequels that are released. The Deponia series has managed to remain interesting and new.

First off, I have to admit this game wasn’t exactly what I expected for a number of reasons but none of which knocked points off. Despite any feelings at the time of playing through it I would still say this is one of my favourite point and click adventure series of all time.

Story wise, it was definitely enjoyable. It took unexpected turns a few times which was great but the ending for me was a little questionable, or at least it felt that way at the time. I would be utterly lying if I said that it ended how I imagined it would.
I’m ill and half brain dead at the moment so naturally… I got confused and I cried. As you do. But I would say it was just unexpected and in all honesty I’m not even sure I know what was going on. It wasn’t even necessarily bad or upsetting!

I noticed a very subtle difference in language that was used in this one, the characters swear every now and again. It was a little bit of a shock the first time but it was actually really amusing the way they did it. The characters are as loveable as ever, both main characters and side characters. I especially like their re-use of more insignificant characters.

Voicing, sound effects and music is pretty much the same throughout the series (you notice a jump up in quality from first to second but the third is pretty much the same as the second) but I think it fits well, you start recognising certain music to mean certain things to get you a little more engrossed or emotional over the situations in which they are used. Definitely doesn’t come across as lazy or recycling.

As always with point and clicks there is always places where you get stuck, or there is a somewhat un-logical solution to a puzzle that you come across that ends up being frustrating. Deponia manages to keep a good balance between the items you use together being creative but logical. I got stuck quite a lot during this third one I won’t lie. At one point you are controlling 3 different characters that can influence each other and maybe that is why I was having such a hard time. You are essentially playing 3 different point and click games at once. Maybe it’s just because I’m brain dead at the moment being ill, but I found this third game harder than either of the previous ones.

Achievement wise, there is definitely a lot more in this one then there was in the last 2, or at least it felt that way. It took me a total of 18 hours to complete this game 100% and that includes about 2 and a half playthroughs. Admittedly I might have been able to do it in less if I was paying proper attention but I completed the game causally the first time around.

Quick shout out to the chorus guys, a very charming part of the series being the singing between chapters. I always look forward to their songs. But all in all it’s a great game and a great franchise that I have come to be very fond of. I’d say definitely go for it.


TL;DR : A great end to the series. Engaging story, fun puzzles, great humour, wonderful art, loveable characters, good music/other media and easy to 100%. It’s a done deal!

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.

Goodbye Deponia, the 3rd and final game in the Deponia trilogy. To be honest, when I finished Chaos on Deponia I simply didn't want to believe I was about to finish a so far amazing trilogy. I had a lot of fun with Goodbye Deponia, and it's probably my favorite in the trilogy. There is just one thing about the game that I cannot stand but I am sure that everybody has previously mentioned. The ending. I just finished the game about 10 minutes ago and I really don't know what to say about the ending. I'll summarize the ending with 2 words; BULL. ♥♥♥♥. I really dislike the ending of this game, I was really starting to enjoy it. Especially after the speech and the Organon hymne, but nonetheless the ending is complete and utter crap for a game this good.
*SPOILERS*
So basically, after Argus, Cletus, and Rufus are all stuck in the Rotor, Goal comes and is confused (of course) of which one she should save cause the 3 all look alike
First of all I call ♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥
While Cletus and Argus may look very similar
Rufus is more tan, doesn't have a goatee like Cletus and Argus but I digress.
Goal ends up saving Cletus letting the real Rufus fall.
Like ♥♥♥♥ are you kidding me?
But anyway for an ending of a single game I might accept this, but for an ending to a TRILOGY? Where you're definitely not going to make another game in the series? No. Absolutely not.
Despite this ending I am really sad to see this series go. It was a fun ride throughout it.
I recommend Goodbye Deponia, BUT only after playing the first 2 games because you'll have absolutely no idea what is going on.

To summarize:

Pros: Pretty much everything, the graphics, the soundtrack, the humor, the colorful cast of characters, the locations, the unique puzzles, the drama.

Cons: The ending. If you loved the game throughout the whole journey, you'll be a bit disappointed

I'm honestly sad and surprised to have ended this series
Only thing I can say now is

Huzzah, I'm off now, goodbye!




EDIT: After now thinking about it, I don't dislike the ending as much as I did when I first viewed it. If anything, the ending just gets me choked up because of the music at the end reminding me how much fun I had with the trilogy. Overall, I still recommend the game, but don't expect a happy ending because the whole trilogy had sad endings, this one being the saddest hitting you like a truck when you actually realize that Rufus did and DIDN'T deserve to be on Elysium because frankly, he was an ♥♥♥, but throughout the games, he did all that he could but people still doubted him and trash talked him, and when he was just a jump from Elysium he sacrificed himself, just so he could give his "friends" a better life, just so he could prove them wrong, like Goal said, there were so many opportunities where he could've gone to Elysium with her but he didn't. Just because he cared too much about his fellow Deponians, so in the end he sacrificed it all, so he didn't get to Elysium after all, so what? I mean we were all hoping it but as I've heard from other fans of the games they have said that Daedelic games always have unhappy endings, but hey that's just what I've heard, if you want to find out for yourself, buy the first game and try it out, as for me, I still whole heartedly recommend the trilogy and it is a fantastic series that I will always hold close to my heart.
I just hope Daedelic gives some closure on wheter Rufus survives or not, granted he did fall from a huge distance into a pile of needles and survived but I digress. TO END MY LONG EDIT,

I'm off now for real.
"Huzzah he's off now for real!"

the ending will always give me feels ;~:

Great end to a great series! Very few series catch my emotional side like this one does, and I'm honored to have played all 3 deponia games. I was moved. My only complaint?

I wish, after beating it, we could unlock an alternate ending or two. I don't want to ruin the ending at all, but there could have easily been 2 different endings, if not more - but the game is done so well, I truly am honored to have witnessed this amazing piece of art.

Thank you for the amazing game! May Deponia live on forever! Because we are in fact, all asses.

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.

This is the 3rd game in the Deponia Trilogy.

Pros: Great animation, good soundtrack, beautiful background art, excellent detail in almost every scene, double-click to fast travel, skippable puzzles, good voice acting, the story is brought to a close.

Cons: The solutions that Rufus has come up with to overcome obstacles in the previous games were never friendly to his fellow man (or animal), but he gets particularly nasty in this game. While this game is a dark comedy, anyone who is extra-sensitive to real-world social issues will be offended by some of the events in this episode.

Summary: If you played and enjoyed the other 2 games, then play this one! If you cannot stomach dark humor of the Southpark variety, you're better off not playing this one.

This has been a brilliant series. I got stumped and cheated outrageously throughout the trilogy, just so I could enjoy the story. Of the three games, this is by far the best. Good puzzles, as ever, fantastic visuals and a great conclusion to the story. Well worth the money.

The third installment of the tale of Rufus and Goal brings to its final conclusion a story about the survival of the fittest at the expense of the weak, the personal drama of an anti - hero who tries to make amends for his mistakes though he never learns from them, and a vortex of explosions, disasters and failed stratagems that began with the first game in the series. Although it falls somewhat short compared to the superb Deponia (1) and despite some flaws in its execution, this 18-hour long game that features a solid allegorical background and great puzzles is anything but a failure.

Man I love this series... I have to admit, I didn't really like the ending, made me sad. But it sort of made sense in an odd way. For it to really mean something I think people should play the trilogy. As always the puzzles were interesting and the humor, although sort of darker than usual, was still pretty good. Overall, the Deponia Trilogy has been one of my favorite point and click game serie and I look forward to Daedalic's future games.

All three Deponia games are truly a treat for adventure point&click lovers. An original tale in a different universe with a very unique ambient. In my opinion, Goodbye Deponia is the best Deponia out of the three, but you should not play it only, you should buy the trilogy and enjoy this amazing adventure Daedalic as been able to craft. Out of the three you will get about 30 hours of gameplay. One of my favorite games of the genre and a true 9/10

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) with having only one that I thought was a bit out there.

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 (60%+) discount.

The end of the trilogy. Jokes are darker, stakes are higher, and we see if Rufus can EVER change.
If you liked the first two, you'll like this one, or you're the sort of whiney kid who shouldn't have played the others.
