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.

To anyone reading this, this game stopped working long before Flashpocolypse. I just ran it in Ruffle in hopes it would bypass whatever glitched in Flash, but it doesn't.

For the record, this game is actually a demo and the full version is on Steam, though I would suggest checking to make sure it doesn't have the glitch too before buying.

If you really want to see the demo, I have heard some flash games that have been broken for years work in Bluemaxima's Flashpoint, so if you have Flashpoint, you could try it there, else find a walkthrough on YouTube.

P.S. I did play the game once way back when and to my minimal recollection, it was decent. I might have had to check the walkthrough a couple times, but that's not uncommon when I play a complex point-and-click-game.

The game doesn't load for me. All I get is a black screen, even though I launch the game in the NG browser.

Start a new game and all I get is a black screen. Nothing loads.

I loved this game so much i brought it, i brought the special edition so i got all the contents. I recommend anyone playing this to get the full game, you wont regret it

I tried this last night and it didn't work. I thought it might be my internet connection so I tried again today and it still isn't working. I hit "new game" and instead of the game appearing after the transition, I get a black screen. I tried many times and I honestly don't know why it isn't working
