About This Game



One fateful night, Rufus awakes from a haunting nightmare: he sacrificed himself to save Deponia. But at what price? Elysium, the floating city crash-landed on the planet. As the last surviving Deponian, he fought savage fewlocks, but in the end, there was only one way out: He had to blow up Deponia! And... He grew a mustache.

Of course he realized that these gruesome events -especially the mustache part- had to be prevented from ever happening. Deponia and his well-shaved face had to survive!

But was this really just a dream? With the help of McChronicle, a quirky temporal scientist, who discovered strange time-anomalies, Rufus discovers that some time travelers from the future carelessly parked their time machine in his neighborhood. Just imagine if this amazing technology would fall into the wrong hands!

Dive right into this frantic sequel of the Deponia cult-trilogy and join the chaotic anti-hero Rufus on his most peculiar adventure. Even without knowing the previous installment, the hilarity of Deponia Doomsday will have you cracking smiles and burst with laughter.

Get enthralled by the bizarre humor and the uniquely designed world and enjoy the largest and longest Deponia adventure of all time.

6.5/10 Honestly, it was enjoyable to play another Deponia game, but it was the weakest of the four games. I was so excited when I saw that there was another game, so I finally bought it. While I'm glad that I played through it, it didn't have as much of the charm that the other games had, nor did it have as much of the familiar humor that made them so thoroughly playable. I'll admit, it became very tedious at times. I am not always the biggest fan when it comes to time travel games, and this one became overly tedious because I had to keep replaying certain scenes so many times through. It became very monotonous (Much like this review..?) If you've played the other three games, I would definitely recommend buying it, especially if it's on sale. However, DO NOT start with this one. There is also a lot of humor that will be lost on you if you haven't already played through the other games. Something that I did enjoy was how the creators of the game explained everything so thoroughly, and wrapped up the ending so nicely. Everything came together in that confusing- yet very descriptive, backwards cliche of a used kleenex type of ending you only get when Rufus is involved.

And yes, if you aren't annoyed yet, or haven't noticed, I tend to rate games that don't have their own ESRB rating, and do my best to remain as close to their rating system as possible.
MATURE: Some Sexual Content/Brief Nudity, Suggestive/Sexual Dialogue, Language, Mild Violence. (In all honesty, the violence isn't anything more than a TEEN rating, it's more for the suggestive content and language that this earned a MATURE).

I picked yes at "Do you recommend this game?"
It´s a good game, it does however dont come even close to the other games in the series.
The story is ok, the Timetraveling was fun the fist few times, it got repetetive really fast.
But the worst thing that just made me go "F**K this" wast the timed stuff you have to do before you got sent back and had to do everything all over again. And you get sent back a few times before you figured out what to do to not restart that sequence again. But that was more towards the end. I had to take a break from the game because it was so boring from time to time. In the end I was not invested in the story anymore, I just wanted the game to end.
Dont get me wrong, I still like the characters and the humor was ok compared to the first 3 Deponia games that was funny as hell.
It had some good moments and one or two perticular moments made me laugh, but that was about it.
I got the feeling that the dev team was not planing to do another Deponia, or this is what was left on the dev floor from the first 3 games.
Is it worth buying, yes but not at full price, I would wait for a discount, as I´m writhing this review, this game is at 25% off.
This game gets a 6 out of 10 from me, this is the lowest score I have given a Deponia game.
If there ever will be a new Deponipa I will buy it without thinking twice, because I think that this game/world they made is one of the best.



When I finished the 3:ed game "Goodbye Deponia" I went like FFS, are you serious.
That did not happen with this one.
It was more like are you F**king kidding me, all this and all the build up for nothing.
Come on..

This was a solid fourth installment. Daedalic makes the best point and click games around, and Deponia is to me their best universe. What a trip. Challenging puzzles. Ridiculous humor. Rufus being rufus. Time travel. Amazing game. Without using any online guides this game took me almost THIRTY HOURS to complete. Some of the puzzles were just as insane as the first three deponia games, so if you don't want to lose your mind, you're going to be checking a walk through. Like others said, spoilers, the ending sucks just as bad as the last deponia game, but they sort of left an open ending with the word "hope" thrown around, so hopefully we'll see a fourth installment.

I see a lot of people complaining about the fact that they struggled accepting the ending from the third game (even though I found it awesome) and that this game is not needed. And after Finishing this game I totally agree. This game is not needed, but It's bloody WORTH. Even though It's not needed Daedalic made it. Now that they made It is a part of Rufus and Goal's adventures and you cannot afford to miss it.

To be honest, when they annouced that there will be a Deponia sequel I thought they'll eventually ruin the trilogy but I was wrong. Everything you liked from the past games is here. Nothing was spoiled. challenging but not annoying puzzles are still here. The characters are still the same, with their cynical humour; they really did a good job.

Now I am sure there are more "In-depth" reviews than mine. I just wanted to say:
If you like Deponia you cannot must not miss Deponia Doomsday

This game really awnsers alot of questions that were left out before, and has another enjoyable story to tell. The game itself is quite big and has lots of puzzles and Thing-a-majigs spread through the entire game

If you're a fan of this series and played through all of the other games, then you will enjoy this one for sure.
if this is not the case and you're new to this game and its story, you can still play it just fine on its own but you will just miss a bit of references thrown at you from the other games.

I rate this game a 8.5/10 and recommend you give this a try if you like the story or really like point and click games mixed with puzzles

- No singing trash bard :c

- Hardly any funny Rufus escapades
Except the first act, the people he met were all random strangers, so there was hardly any good Rufus comedy.

Also, despite the wacky puzzles, they were not that hard, and it wasn't so much a puzzle than just trying everything on everything, since you weren't juggling a big amount of items in your inventory like the previous games.

Despite having these cons, I'll give it a good review, because I loved the series, but just barely.

How third game had died
With it's s**tty ending,
And devs were to blame.

So now rejoice!
Because you have chance
To change that last ending
While playing this game!

13 Hours, 20 minutes... Thats how long it took to beat this game. from start to finish, without worrying about achivements. This game I only found out 8 hours before release that it would become available. Let me tell you what I hated about this game

-Confusing puzzles that made almost no sence
-playing this game with no sleep for 13 hours straight
-The wierd minigames
-The 3-5 bugs I found that were voice acting bugs and glitches.

Now let me tell you what makes this game one of the leaders of the Deponia franchise.

-They know what everyone hated about the ending
-they made sure you knew why they made this game
-they made sure you understand exactly why your complaints are heard and this game... informs you exactly what deponia is about. A story of the ages that though can be played an infinate times, will always end the same way. That is destiny, that is fate. And though we can fight it, in some cases maybe we should not.

Deponia is a story about using your wits (or lack thereof) in almost impossible odds. If it were not for google translate, great friends, and a lot of immagination, this game would have easilly taken me twice as long... I played this game... I beat this game... I love this game... You should play to understand exactly why this game is Daedalic entertainments best installment so far. You should play, because it is fun and challenging and makes you feel like a champion at the end... even though you risk... or lose it all.

TL;DR

10/10 Would lose sanity over this game again.

(EDIT)I have seen a lot of "Not recommended"... I can imagine that a lot of them if not all of them are because they are not satisfied with the ending.

TL;DR:
+ Get this game if you want some more Rufus, laughs and crazy situations like in the other games.
- Don't get this game if you want a better ending than Goodbye Deponia.

I just completed the game and WTF DAEDALIC!!!!

Still, I enjoyed the game overall, it's a good deponia game. If you liked the previous games, then definitely don't miss out this one.

This is a good game, although it's not a so good sequel for Goodbye Deponia.

Massive SPOILERS about this game ahead, only read if completed:
Since the release announcement of this game, Daedalic gave you the hope to change ending from the previous game for another better one. Little do you know it ends the exact same, the point of the whole game is to try and show you that no matter what you try everything comes to an end, and if you try to change it maybe something worse can happen... at least that's how I saw it... but c'mon, they knew what all their fans wanted and they could easily have given it to them, but instead they give exactly the same ending as before (well, not exactly, but almost the same).

It is not until after seeing the ending that you feel empty and realize all you have done (which is a lot) has lead to practically nothing... Then you try to cope with it thinking that it could have been worse, and then you feel empty again because it doesn't fill that hole. The reason why I recommend this game is because I had fun overall playing it and it has all the good things that the other games had, and I liked them a lot.

The ending is not THAT bad if you managed to get over the Goodbye Deponia ending though, just like I did.

I really hope/wish there's a sequel, and in case they plan on doing it, I really look forward to know more about it.

The issue cannot be avoided; the question of whether many of you will purchase this game will hinge on whether it changes an ending you dislike. It is important, I think, for you to know it does not before you buy; that much is only fair. However, as a former member of the "I hate that stupid ending!" camp, I strongly urge you to give Deponia Doomsday a play, as you will otherwise not only miss one of the best adventure games of this decade, but will forego a massive amount of story and character development that puts certain things in context -- and gives a whole new perspective on the shocking end of Rufus' saga as seen in Goodbye Deponia.

Deponia Doomsday is unquestionably the best Deponia game and most likely the best point-and-click in Daedelic's estimable library. Its puzzles are brilliant, walking the line between between transparent fairness and lunatic absurdity with unwavering perfection. It has a more spot-on translation than any Daedelic game to date, and considering how well-done many of their games are in that regard -- particularly the other Deponias -- that says a lot. As any veteran Elysian geneticist will assure you, it has the funniest gags in the whole series. It has more varied environments, more lavish animations and even more minigames than any previous Deponia or Daedalic game. I encountered no bugs, and this is surprising as even the best adventures (like all games) tend to have their share. What is most important, it has a terrific story, one so wonderfully, maniacally convoluted that it could be mistaken for a cracked Metal Gear Solid -- and looking beyond Poki's impressive feats of Kojima-esque plot engineering, it provides something truly vital for hardcore Deponia fans: a meatier build-up to, and greater rationale for, Rufus' ultimate decision in Goodbye Deponia. It completely changed how I felt about the end of the previous game, and I consider that no small accomplishment.

Deponia Doomsday is a stroke of genius; it's as good as the genre gets. I know that I will never get any new Rufus adventures, but I look forward to playing back through the series someday with the renewed appreciation that this amazing installment has granted me. Perhaps if we are lucky (and we stop bombarding Poki with our demands and thus burning him out on the whole thing), we will get to experience the world of Deponia through the eyes of some other character in the future, like Goal or maybe even Bozo. One can only hope!

Appearance of this game was very unexpected. When Daedalic Entertainment made an announcement I started to wait for this game and check its Steam page every day. And this day has come!

I bought it and installed immediately when it became available. What have I seen? Good old heros, funny new characters, new stories and traditional Huzzah song!

This game has still its charming humour, nice music and interesting puzzles. And this time I solved all of them without any assistance. It is really pleasantly! I don't think that the game is easier than the previous parts but maybe I have improved my quest skill :-)

The game has so many story turns, and so it is quite possible that you will need to pass it again :-) And enjoy more!

It is sad that there is only one Huzzah song this time. But, I hope that creators just have left them to the future parts! The story must go on! :-)

Good luck and have fun!
