Daedalic Entertainment, once called ÒLucasarts from GermanyÒ from the GameStar magazine, invites the players into an excellent comedy adventure that revolves around a mad love story of Rufus and Goal.
One day a mysterious woman named Goal unexpectedly lands in his arms. Goal comes from the floating city of Elysium a better, care-free world full of luxury. Rufus falls madly in love with Target and he senses the chance of leading the beautiful life he always imagined.
In an effort to escape his junkyard existence, Rufus runs head on into a mystery that will put him on an adventure to rescue his garbage dump and all the special characters in it!PROS:+ Really great art! + Voiceovers are done well+ Unique characters+ Some good puzzlesCONS:Story... what's the story again? Puzzles devolve into pixel huntsUnclear/too many goals at timesMany zany/weird dialogueI really, really wanted to love this game. The art looked amazing. The dialogue reminded me of updated adventure games like Monkey Island. The air seemed unique. In the end, however, I found myself lost a lot of time trying to determine what to do next because there was not any real-world logic involved. When I knew what I needed to do, I found myself searching around arbitrary areas trying to locate anything I could use to help me solve the puzzles because it wasn't clear what I wanted. Most of the time I found frustration. If it's on a terrific sale, give it a try and see if you want it. $20 is too much.
Experience a mind-blowing experience with Rufus. Help him save the planets, win over the girl of his dreams and incover dark deeds. But be warned: you are going to encounter shady look-alikes and make new friends, in addition to unexpected enemies. The plan is only going to succeed if you can shrug off your pursuers, build crazy gadgets and reveal loads of guts with an additional pinch of heroism.
I've played some trashy adventures in my day, but none quite as trashy as Deponia. No, wait, that's a compliment! At least, it's a statement of fact, as this game takes place, quite literally, on a trash heap. The landscape is made up of trash. The things you stuff in your pockets are crap. The puzzles... well, actually, those aren't half bad. It might have some rough edges, but this unflinchingly traditional point-and-click adventure from Daedalic Entertainment has a lot to like--crap and all.
Rufus n'est pas un personnage des plus sympathiques. Ronchon et imbu de sa personne, il vit en périphérie d'une petite colonie située dans une zone recluse p Deponia, une planète dépotoir. Il rêve d'une vie meilleure dans l'une des riches et magnifiques cités flottant au-dessus de sa tête. Lorsque l'angélique Goal tombe de ces sphères privilégiées dans un tas d'immondices, Rufus y voit une opportunité de changer les choses.
