Chaos on Deponia

Adventure Classic Gaming
1 February 2015
  • Excerpt: A common formula employed in adventure games use humor to add flavors to the storytelling. Some games successfully use humor to enhance the story, while other games overuse humor that slows the story down. Chaos on Deponia, from German developer and publisher Daedalic Entertainment, is an example of a game that uses humor to build up its plot but comes close to overusing it and risks ruining its charm.

Deponia

Destructoid
2 September 2013
  • Summary: LucasArts or Sierra: You could like both, but, more often than not, people tended to prefer one over the other in the golden age of adventure games. Though King’s Quest VI was my introduction to the genre (and the Windows operating system it was bundled with), Maniac Mansion , The Secret of Monkey Island series, and Full Throttle were the games I obsessed over and showed to visiting friends at any opportunity.

Chaos on Deponia

Destructoid
2 September 2013
  • Summary: Deponia ended right when things were getting good, and so that’s where Chaos on Deponia begins. Despite the first reaching the West in January -- or August, really, for us Steam-lovin’ folks -- a full, bona fide sequel is already upon us. Even though the game features new characters, locations, and many improvements over the original, there are some nagging issues that keep Chaos on Deponia from being what the previous entry hinted the series could become.

  • Summary: Poor Rufus never seems to catch a break. If he's not accidentally setting fire to an unsuspecting parrot, or very nearly decapitating the smartest man on Deponia, then he's strapped to a fireworks-powered saw blade in some vain attempt to reach the faraway land of Elysium. Of course, his schemes are doomed to failure.
  • Pros: Great sense of humor, Well-written dialogue, Beautiful art style, Compelling story
  • Cons: Some nonsensical puzzles, Minigames aren't clearly explained

Chaos on Deponia Review

Game Over Online
23 December 2012
  • Excerpt: Chaos on Deponia is a funny point-and-click adventure from Daedalic Entertainment, and it’s the follow-up to Deponia , which was released a scant four months ago on Steam (and a little longer than that in Europe). Chaos on Deponia picks up right where Deponia left off, with the trash planet Deponia still in danger of being blown up, Goal and her fiancé Cletus on their way to the much cozier world of Elysium, and Rufus abandoned on Deponia.

  • Conclusion: Chaos on Deponia makes multiple tongue-in-cheek references to classic adventures, but even without these, it’s clear that the Deponia team loves and cherishes the genre. While this sequel doesn’t have enough improvement over the first game to earn it a higher score, it is nonetheless a charming and at times clever “old school” adventure that fans of LucasArts-style comedies will enjoy.

  • Conclusion: A better Deponia than Deponia.
  • Pros: Funnier, prettier, platypusier.
  • Cons: First act likes to dilly-dally for a good long while; puzzles can sometimes be a chore.

Chaos on Deponia

Game Vortex
10 November 2012
  • Excerpt: Chaos on Deponia continues where the last game, Deponia , left off and provides an even wider variety of zany and amusing puzzles, plus a much smoother gameplay experience that keeps the pacing fairly steady throughout the whole game, a nice change over the first title. Chaos on Deponia takes place in the same junk-filled, steampunk-esque setting as the first game, except this time, you see even more of Deponia's endless trash heaps and the civilization that has grown up...
