  • Conclusion: Deponia ’s saved from being worse than Yesterday by at least having a simple understandable storyline and by not taking itself too seriously, but that’s not saying much. Next time though Daedalic, hire yourselves some better writers (in both German and English), try not to make your main character so utterly hateful, and make your puzzles have some recognisable objective or logic to them.

Deponia review

1 November 2012
  • Conclusion: Overall Deponia isn’t a bad game, but it isn’t a great one either. It’s entertaining, inexpensive, has some laugh out loud moments and doesn’t take itself seriously. Unless you love this genre though there is little here that makes it stand out from what’s gone before. With a little more polish and thought about the little things such as the functional aspects of the game mechanics, I feel Daedalic could bring something very special to the table. Maybe next time.
  • Pros: Well written with some genuinely funny humour. Colourful hand drawn graphics.
  • Cons: A few frustrating puzzles and text errors. Baddies sound awful.

Deponia: review

Critical Gamer
29 October 2012
  • Excerpt: Deponia is a lovely point-and-click adventure game that makes all the wrong choices about choices. A surprisingly heartfelt story and art that pops with cartoony talent reinforce imaginative puzzles and a heavy dose of hilarity, requiring a bit of cognitive exertion and– far too often– heaps of patience.

Deponia Review - Trash or Treasure?

9 July 2012
  • Summary: A trash-filled adventure that misses the mark
  • Pros: + Colourful art style is inviting, + Some sections are genuinely funny, + Heartwarming story
  • Cons: - Relies too much on hit & miss comedy, - Doesn't bring anything new to the table, - First act drags on for too long, - Some puzzles defy all logic

Chaos on Deponia

26 November 2012
  • Excerpt: Daedalic Entertainment är oerhört duktiga på att göra vackra äventyrsspel och Chaos on Deponia är inget undantag. Det är svårt att inte bli hänförd av de fint handmålade miljöerna och de förträffligt animerade karaktärerna. Världen känns välkomnande med sin levande grafik med fiskar som plumsar i vattnet samtidigt som fåglar cirklar runt i skyn.
