Rufus is back!! Not that I know who that is as yet, since I’m more of a console gamer. The original Chaos On Deponia sequel was released for PC on Steam in 2012.
After the events on Deponia, it seems that Rufus came to his senses. He’s grown prudent, amicable, kind and caring, without any intention to cause major mayhem just to further his own selfish ends. It seems he is far from chaining himself to flaming saw blades, training torpedo-dolphins or foraging through platypus nests. Or is he?
Ultimately it’s a flaming saw blade grounding Goal on Deponia again. By accident, her consciousness gets split into three parts and stored to three different discs.
Now it’s on Rufus once again to convince all three parts of Goal, utilizing his remarkable charming wits, to become one again, venture to Eylsium with her and save Deponia from certain doom while he’s at it.
According the developer and publisher Daedalic Entertainment, Chaos on Deponia is its own self-contained story, so you won’t need to play the first game to understand it. However, it does answer some questions for fans of the first game. And for the console, there are some nifty new features we can enjoy:
- Completely reworked controls with optimum use of the functions of the PlayStation 4 and Xbox One controller
- Unique 2D game world in the tradition of Douglas Adams, Terry Pratchett and Matt Groening
- Detailed hand-drawn graphics in HD splendor and cartoon animations in comic book style
- Lavishly produced soundtrack with numerous atmospheric tracks
- First-class voice output spoken by well-known dubbing actors
- Award-winning game: “Best German Game 2015” by Deutscher Computerspielspreis
I am always happy when they bring PC games to console, so that I can finally give them a try. I’m hoping to pick up a review copy for the PS4 to give it a try and give you guys some feedback on how enjoyable it is. In the meantime, you can download a copy from the PlayStation or Xbox online stores.
