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.

Awesome game loved it :)

I like this game but it has very much glitches, why when i put the soxes and the fork in the pot (with hot wather) they four return to my inventory like before i put them in the pot what i must do?

Loved the game it seemed like it had a couple glitches near the beginning well inside the house but overall i give you all the stars it can have loved it just wished it was longer lol. I dont know if anyone else had that problem though but for me it kept freezing him up and i can still move the cursor but couldnt get stuff sometimes and sometimes it wouldnt do anything i couldnt put things anywhere but after i started a new game a couple of times it was okay lol thanks for the game good game :) happyholidays

This game is wonderful, even if the American voices don't match the length of the characters' talking sequence.

I love your games and they're such an inspiration for someone like me (an inspiring game designer). Keep up the amazing work, so you can keep inspiring people!
