Been eyeing this game for a while and saw it on offer on the GOG spring sale for £4.09. Went to check out the price and review at the Steam Store and found it for £1.59. I know its been in bundles before, but still a decent price

Daedalic Entertainment, once called “Lucasarts from Germany“ by the GameStar magazine, invites the players into a fantastic comedy adventure that revolves around a crazy love story of Rufus and Goal.

In Deponia, the world has degenerated into a vast garbage dump, in which the crotchety Rufus ekes out his sorry existence. He is part of the lowest social class, doomed to live his life in literal mountains of trash. He hopes for an opportunity to get into the world of the rich, who live in a floating city high above the clouds. Fate seems to smile on the snotty good-for-nothing when one day the attractive lady named Goal from the higher sector plummets into one of the trash heaps. Rufus decides to help the young woman out by taking her back to her husband. When he notices that Goal's husband is a dead ringer for himself, he hatches a diabolical scheme to gain access to the upper world. However, things don't work out quite as planned, since he has feelings for the beauty which limits his usual unscrupulousness.

Help Rufus, the poor boy from the junkyard, to win over the girl from heaven. Only with this rich girl from his dreams he might be able to escape Deponia and, unexpectedly, to save the planet.

Love this series, much recommended!

Nice

Amazing game, just be aware that
- This is part one of a trilogy (with an added part 4 for fan-service)
- The main character is an absolute a**hole

I can't comment on how good the English translation is, but I played all 4 games and absolutely loved them. If you're into lucas arts stuff and don't need the game to be as kid-friendly as the original lucas arts games, by all means go for it.

I really liked this point and click. There's not much I can say bad about it. Oh wait, how 3 ended. But there's 4.
I personally bought the (in)complete journey which is 1-3 and have not played 4. English version, I think they did a good job with the voice acting. It contains insights from the developer which are quite nice too.

I really think most people would regret just buying the first part of this series. Steam does have demos of each part if you're not sure. I also don't see parts 2 and 3 on discount as much as part 1. The complete journey is on discount every now and again. Can't wait to play part 4.

This was the first Daedalic game I have played and have pretty much played all their other games on the strength of this series alone.

Steam appears to have removed the demos, but here's an alternative source for the part 1 demo.
