About Deponia

Rufus isnrsquo;t a pleasant guy. Ill-tempered and entirely too convinced of his own greatness, he lives at the edge of a small settlement somewhere in the most remote sector of the garbage-covered planet Deponia. He dreams of a better life in the floating cities of wealth and beauty high above the planetary surface. When the angelic Goal falls from these privileged spheres down into a neighboring trash heap, Rufus sees his chance. He decides to bring the unconscious beauty back to her home. Only a vague hope of making it off Deponia at first, he soon formulates an unscrupulous plan as he learns that he is a dead ringer for Goalrsquo;s upper-class husband. The planned handover soon dissolves into a wild chase full of twists, turns and mystifying mix-upshellip;

Deponia is a fast-paced comedy of errors and one of the most unusual love stories in gaming history. The twist-filled story takes its offbeat characters all over trash planet Deponia, a unique game world in the style of Douglas Adams, Terry Pratchett and Matt Groening. The new adventure game from the makers of The Whispered World, EdnaHarvey: The Breakout, The Dark Eye: Chains of Satinav and A New Beginning is brought to life with detailed HD graphics, hand-painted backgrounds and top-quality cartoon animation.

About the Deponia series

Deponia is a trilogy: The multiple award winning series of pointclick adventure games tells three ludicrous stories, set on the trash planet of Deponia and its bizarre surroundings: While Deponiarsquo;s regular inhabitants are forced to live on the planetrsquo;s trashy surface, thendash; literalndash;ldquo;upper classldquo; enjoys bliss and luxury on the space shipldquo;Elysiumldquo;. Between both castes resides the Organon on giant monorail cruisers. The Organon is a group of grim officers controlling the fate of both the inhabitants of Deponia as well as Elysium.

Anti-hero Rufus lives on the Deponia surface, between junk and recycled things. All he dreams of is finding his way to Elysium, to finally leave what he thinks of is a stupid live. Hersquo;s an inventor and nothing can stop him from coming up with ideas for machines that will take him up on the space ship. However, no matter how hard he triesndash; he never actually had any success yet, and all he makes it to is the Organon level of things. There, he meets Goal, a beautiful girl from Elysium, whom Rufus takes for being his ticket to paradise.

Deponia is a series of hand-drawn 2D comic pointclick adventure games, full of sarcastic dialogues and black humor. Deponia has won a number of impressive awards, such as theldquo;Best Game 2013rdquo; trophy at the German Computer Game Awards for Chaos on Deponia, the second game of the series. The third Deponia adventure, Goodbye Deponia, is scheduled for release in October 2013.
