The award-winning hit Deponia has been critically acclaimed by the gaming press and within a short time became the best-reviewed adventure of all time in Germany. Rufus, the main character, is as lovely as his home Deponia. Odd and cantankerous, he lives at the most remote part of the worldwide junkyard and works on his plans to escape to the hovering city of Elysium. After uncountable abortive attempts, he succeeds – nearly at least. As a result, he falls from the sky and lands back in his hometown together with the mysterious girl Goal.
For Rufus, she is mainly a good reason to escape once again and so he begins to plan her way back. Obviously, Rufus’ bad luck seems to be infectious and, in the sequel Chaos on Deponia, both end at the point where it all began. Before they can start another attempt to escape, Goal’s consciousness needs to be restored. Besides that, they have to save Deponia from threatening chaos.
