Deponia is now available digitally for the PlayStation 4 and features reworked controls exclusive to the console.
The popular series of puzzle point and click video games continues to make its way to consoles with the first entry, simply titled Deponia, gracing the PlayStation 4. The highlight of this release are the reworked controls meant to fit the environment, allowing players to directly manipulate the protagonist Rufus for a more intense experience.
Deponia follows the young Rufus and a well-constructed cast in their misadventures through the eponymous world, with this being the first title in the series. Receiving favorable reviews, most of which point out the game’s fitting humor,the game counts with a lovable steampunk art style, a thought out plot, a catchy soundtrack, and clever puzzles, the latter being the signature of the point and click genre. It saw its first release January 2012, completely in German, then later on August 2012 in English, with new voices to give life to the characters. It was also ported to Linux on July 2014 and iPad on 2015.
The series was initially supposed to be a trilogy, with Goodbye Deponia being the last entry. But Daedalic Entertainment released one more titled earlier this year, Deponia Doomsday, which they call neither a sequel or a prequel, but a “paralellic”. Doomsday came out on March 2016 for the PlayStation 4, XBox One and Windows PC for the Steam platform.
Deponia is available for both the PlayStation 4 for and Windows PC for Steam, while its sequels, Chaos on Deponia and Goodbye Deponia, are available solely on Steam for the time being. The trilogy can also be purchased in a bundle, Deponia: The Complete Journey, available on Steam. The fourth entry in the series, Deponia Doomsday is available for the PlayStation 4, XBox One and Windows PC on Steam.
