It really is only three months since the first part of the Deponia trilogy was released. A German point and click adventure from Daedalic, it managed to wobble along the line of decent and frustrating, mostly making up for its biggest mistakes with some fun puzzles, decent voice acting, and a good number of laughs.

In a never to be repeated adventure game news roundup, I bring you trailers and release dates for two – count ‘em – two> adventure games of the pointing and clicking variety. First up is The Testament of Sherlock Holmes in which the the world’s first consulting detective goes on a murder spree. Or perhaps he doesn’t and the whole thing turns out to be an overwhelmingly obtuse setup, but the trailer would not have you believe that. It is dramatic in a way that only occurrences within the pea soupers of Old London Town can be. The second trailer is for Chaos on Deponia, second in the trilogy. John shared his thoughts on the first, concluding thusly: “I spent more time being frustrated than entertained, and perhaps too much time somewhere between the two.” Watch both trailers now.
Deponia is released today – the latest adventure from German developers, Daedalic Entertainment. Set on a planet made of trash, will it prove to be a big pile of rubbish, or a diamond in a dungheap. You can’t refuse to find out – I promise it won’t be a waste of your time. Here’s Wot I Think:>
