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.

The game looks quite nice. It's a pity it was just a demo.
I quite like point-and-click games, and all the steampunk style. The graphics were quite nice and it looks like a very polished game. This was too short, though, being just a demo. Also, the game description (here in Newgrounds) doesn't match the game content (here in Newgrounds)... in my opinion that's kind of false advertising.

On the flash part, I liked that the mouse pointer was an actual mouse pointer; Flash usually behaves laggy if the mouse pointer is a moving sprite. Wonder why don't all Flash games do this. Also, it was nice to have videos being streamed from YouTube (although I never trust YouTube since videos might unexpectedly disappear from there...)

Thanks for your feedback! We will think about what we can do to find a more fitting game description. About it being "too short": We did our best to put as much content in the demo as possible, to make it at least as long as the average flash adventure. Due to all the speech files etc. and the fact that we aimed for 10MB at max. we had to cut it down to what you see now. But since the demo covers the whole beginning of the game and two cutscenes I think we did a pretty good job offering as much free gaming experience as possible. Thanks to everyone giving the demo a chance. :) Regarding the mouse pointer: Native mouse pointers were introduced in the last flash version, so not everyone has heard the news about them yet I suppose.

i reallllllllllllly like this game, but i cant open the door on the bottom D: which sucks cuz i really want to see what toni looks like /:


Daedalic responds:

The door at the bottom isn't needed for completing the demo, and if you want to see Toni and talk to her you just have to complete calibrating the harpoon on the roof. :)
