Deponia is a gorgeously realised title about a naïve, jobless layabout with crazy ideas and his quest to get out of the dumps – literally. A good narrative is spiced with consistent good humour, larger than life characters and puzzles that won’t make you pull your hair out – most of the time.
Rufus isn’t happy with his life, with good reason. He lives on Deponia, a planet literally covered in trash. People live in trash houses, have to drink polluted water, and scrape a livelihood in the piles of detritus. Oh, and he lives with an angry Ex-Girlfriend for good measure.
