Another Daedalic Entertainment point & click adventure gaming classic is now available in Apple’s official Mac App Store in the form of Chaos of Deponia, winner of the “Best game 2013” trophy at the German Computer Games Awards, completing Daedalic’s series of Mac store releases for this month priced at £15.49.
Even wackier than its predecessor, Chaos of Deponia instantly puts the player under its spell. 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 the trash planet of 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.
In addition to the German Computer Games Award, Chaos on Deponia won the “Best of the Best – Red Dot Design Award 2013” as well as numerous German Developer Awards, including the “Best Adventure Game 2013” trophy.
Chaos on Deponia is now available for Mac in the official Mac App Store, as well as for PC on Steam and GOG.
About the Deponia series
Deponia is a trilogy: The multiple award winning series of point & click adventure games tells three ludicrous stories, set on the trash planet of Deponia and its bizarre surroundings: While Deponia’s regular inhabitants are forced to live on the planet’s trashy surface, the – literal – „upper class“ enjoys bliss and luxury on the space ship „Elysium“. Between both castes resides the Organon on giant monorail cruisers. The Organon is a group of grim officers controlling the fate of both the inhabitants of Deponia as well as Elysium.
Anti-hero Rufus lives on the Deponia surface, between junk and recycled things. All he dreams of is finding his way to Elysium, to finally leave what he thinks of is a stupid live. He’s an inventor and nothing can stop him from coming up with ideas for machines that will take him up on the space ship. However, no matter how hard he tries – he never actually had any success yet, and all he makes it to is the Organon level of things. There, he meets Goal, a beautiful girl from Elysium, whom Rufus takes for being his ticket to paradise.
Deponia is a series of hand-drawn 2D comic point & click adventure games, full of sarcastic dialogues and black humor. Deponia has won a number of impressive awards, such as the “Best Game 2013” trophy at the German Computer Game Awards for Chaos on Deponia, the second game of the series. The third Deponia adventure, Goodbye Deponia, is scheduled for release in October 2013.
