"The conclusion to an amazing adventure that we're surely going to miss."

Reviews

“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!”
9/10 – Gamereactor

“The dialogue, the bizarre characters and the slapstick humor measure up to those of 'Day of the Tentacle'.”

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 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.

Goodbye Deponia is a satisfying conclusion to Daedalic's trilogy.

It has the imaginative puzzles of the first Deponia, a satisfying move away from the terrible puzzles of Chaos on Deponia. It's lengthier than the previous offerings so there is a great deal more to do, some locations from the previous games are revisited albeit in the form of different areas of those places. and most importantly Rufus, is still a ♥♥♥♥♥♥bag but is not nearly so callous as in the previous games, a final recognition of his character development. HOwever As for Argus and Cletus, well once again Daedalic fail somewhat there, in fact the largest rub I've had with the Deponia games is the lack of true understanding of their characters psychology. Daedalic tend to go for gags and tropes with the characters there to fill in the holes. This is unfortunately very apparent. It's a pity the writers have focused on the humour more than on their character motivations, it does seem to be improving however as they have gained in experience through the series.
The bizarre Piers Anthony humour still abounds, and the game has a plethora of pop culture references to find and discover.
The quirky art style is still just as appropriate to the underlying themes, and the vibrant, mechanisticly lush environments are as wonderful as ever. The music (much of it rehashed from previous games) is enjoyable without becoming overwhelming. As for the Chorus Guys... well their lyrics are still just as awkward to try and "sing"...

Overall I will recommennd the game, however it needs to be played with Deponia and Chaos on Deponia as well, so if possible try buy it as a part of a package deal, and not standalone.

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.

What a disappointing end to a trilogy.

The poor taste amped up in the second one, but this game was grosser, cruder, and just more wildly inappropriate than the other two combined. There were bad ideas and ruining people's day in the first, but this was just beyond appreciating. I can't see how this was humor or amusing, it was just really ♥♥♥♥ing disgusting.

Bottom line: Don't waste time on this trilogy, I have many, many other recommended point and click adventure/puzzle games like Puzzle Agent or The Longest Journey.

One of the best modern adventure games available in classic form. Full of the humor and absurd logic puzzles that you come to expect from the genre.

I really enjoyed playing the first two games in the Deponia series. I would rate them as some of the most enjoyable adventures I've played in the last few years, and I've played a lot of adventure games.

I didn't enjoy the third Deponia at all. Partly it was because the main character, Rufus, is sucy an annoying person. For a while his self centered nature is amusing, but the jokes eventually start to wear thin.

The puzzle solutions are also absurd at times. All of the Deponia games have at least a few bad puzzles, unfortunately Goodbye Deponia has more than a few.

Daedalic use to be one of my favourite developers/publishers, but their last few games have been very poor. After Blackguards and Goodbye Deponia I've given up on their games for now.

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

In many ways, I am extremely disappointed that this series had not reached what I felt was a higher potential, but it also delivers a frantically great experience that will have you entirely immersed in the fascinating world it presents.

Throughout much of the game, the humor that was once so charming crosses partly over to being crude as well as insensitive. And, the opportunities they had to develop these characters more, for us to see them thrive and gain more through their experiences, to grasp the reality of their situation, then to grow wiser as a result, was all missed. At its core, all the characters are static. Rather than growing and being the preferable dynamic characters they should have been, they learn nothing and remain the same. It really is a shame, because all these characters are so likable and interesting. Instead of development, we had been given an abrupt ending that very poorly tried to end the series with an open note, but absolutely failed to do so.

The gameplay is improved, however. The first section is very well-done, and I found myself enjoying it far more than any other part of the series thus far. As the game went on, it became progressively more cryptic and difficult, but still managed to maintain a somewhat fresh twist on the point-and-click formula. The settings and environments remain beautiful, and the animation never failed to impress.

The Deponia series, despite its shortcomings, proved to be a very memorable trilogy of games filled to the brim with a sense of wild imagination that spurred my mind alive. It possessed additional potential that could have propelled it to become a true classic, but as it stands, I feel it is still well-worth your time if you're even remotely interested in this type of genre.

Edit done due to a minor grammatical error in the review.

The epic 3-part adventure comes to an end... or does it?
It'll make you laugh and you'll be sad to let the characters go when all is said and clicked. I'm missing those guys already.
If you liked the first two games getting this one is a no-brainer.

So, at this point you've looked into playing Deponia, Chaos on Deponia, and now you've decided to treat yourself to getting Goodbye Depoinia. Perhaps it was a steam sale, perhaps it was something about the game that caught your eye, or maybe your just a big fan of Point and Click Adventures - either way welcome to the third installment and last of the Deponia series.

Play the game to enjoy the story of Rufus, the lowest scum of the planet who works to put himself above the rest, falls in love, and works to improve the quality of life (seemingly for himself and a human from beyond the stars). Unfortunately, while the story works and has some interesting twists along the way... I can't say I am a fan of some of the major choices in this game.

Not a spoiler: In game 2 of the series you have to make Tuna out of Baby Dolphins. If you were not bothered by that puzzle, fine for you. What the THIRD game does is worse. Not only do you have to feed children to a monster, and break up an inter-racial couple, but then you have to sell the black woman into slavery. I wish this wasn't a joke. It seems like the ONLY black woman in the series, is used in a cruel manner by the main protagonist. I wish there were alternative solutions to these puzzles. Guilt driven enough to killing orphans and ruining lives of others, is probably why I will not return to playing this game for nostalgia, and warn you now about it before buying it.

I will always recommend this series. It's up there in my favorites of all time.
That said, this game made me disgusted with myself for some of the things Rufus did, and then made me see the better side of him all in one. There is so much room for growth... And so few answers. Please make a 4, and answer some of them. Please.

Absolutely fantastic, Rufus's antics never cease to amuse and the feelings were very intense in this game. This is my favorite series hands down and it was very bittersweet to finally finish the final installment. I suggest anyone and everyone give this series a chance, it will not disappoint!

Goodbye, Deponia, I will sorely miss you.

You know I really love the Deponia series. I really do. The characters, the gameplay, the puzzles, the humor, and so-on. But please hear me out. The only reason what I don't like is how they ended Goodbye Deponia. I was very disappointed when I saw the ending. More like a confusing open-ending like the first Deponia game. It just doesn't make any sense. Now what I really hope is a Deponia 3.5 (or Goodbye Deponia.5) with a epilogue that shows us a true and not-so-confusing happier ending.

Sorry Daedalic team. The bottom line is this in caps that Rufus can even understand. ENDING SUCKS. Unless you want to make it up to us by making a epilogue to a true and happier ending that Goodbye Deponia failed to show us.
