Worth a shot, buuuut....

This is a classical adventure game, nothing much new,

uses old well known mechanics and design, has some minor improvements to mechanics like highlighting all available items on the scene.

More precisely, this is a humorous classical adventure game, like Monkey Island series.

The game graphics are good, if you like cartoonish style you really might like it.

Also, the Deponia universe is creative and interesting.

I tryed this game because of the looks and setting.

The game also has some decent sound engeneering, good voice acting and very cool fitting soundtrack.

Puzzle design is well thought, game is not easy nor hard.

But, I did not finish it, main character is not very loveable, I did not like the characters in general.

Also it was not very funny for a humorous adventure game, something might have been lost in translation from German, I dont know. But actually I think it’s just not my type of humor, tries to be like Monkey Island, but something is missing.

After some time I just did not have the motivation to go through puzzles, to go through all that dialogue which is not particulary interesting or funny…

I did not like the storytelling also, the way story progresses and the speed.

There is a big high in the story at the beginning and then it drops down leaving you without

actual goal, just dissapointment, then you realize “ah that is the goal now”, but for some time I was kinda… confused what to do next after that “bummer” experience.

All in all, props to Daedalic, this game is objectivly well done, I did bash it a bit but mostly because of

my subjective preferences. It is good to see serious developer putting some serious effort into this genre.

If you are looking for something like monkey island, give it a try, just try a demo or something before you buy it.

Game definitely has the looks, but does it have that character, that story, does it give that awesome magical experience that adventure games can have ? For me no, but you must try for your self Smile

Time Played: 5-10 hours

Great, Quirky Humor. Tremendously nice hand drawn visuals. Great voice acting.

The game looks great, sounds great. It also has humor oozing out of it every minute of the game and it is executed very well. Some of the puzzles are great and very unique. The story is also very interesting, as I was interested to find out what was happening.

This is my favorite game series out of all of Daedalic games.

Best of all, it doesn’t suffer from the “dark humor” syndrome found in the Edna & Harvey series. The humor here can be good and clean.

Time Played: 10-20 hours

After I heard about this “great” game, I had to play it. What met me was totally different from what I’d expect. It was annoying, slow and too much uninteresting dialogue. It also got me frustrated and bored. I ended up watching the rest half of the game on youtube to see if it got any better. It didn’t. It didn’t give me anything, and this is not a game I will return to. Not even the sequel.

The main character’s attitude is also really annoying. Like he doesn’t really care about anything or anyone. Not a character I would want to play.

If you expect anywhere close to Monkey Island, Book of Unwritten Tales, Toonstruck or Runaway, this game is definitely not for you Smile

Time Played: 2-5 hours

Very nice tribute to classic adventure gaming but cut off

A lovely game with great humor and dialogue and gameplay. A great tribute to games such as Escape from Monkey Island. It’s fun and well done… although I will admit that the beginning takes a bit too long to get through. But the real problem with it is that it ends just as it is getting good. This is Episode 1 of a 3 Episode game. It’s not that the games are really too short, but they are all part of one complete story that needs to be played together to be truly appreciated and they shouldn’t be sold or charged as three separate games, but should be sold as a season pass, like Broken Age, for example.

Time Played: 5-10 hours
Difficulty: Very Easy
