Deponia Doomsday PS4 Game Review

The flying city of Elysium has fallen, hideous Fewlocks inhabit the junk planet Deponia and Rufus is apparently the sole (human) survivor. He sees only one way out: Deponia must be blown up.

Terrified, Rufus awakes in his bed. Was that a dream or a vision? Fortunately, Rufus can check this right away as the oddball Professor McChronicle has detected several time anomalies. It's rather handy that Rufus finds a time machine and immediately sets out to duly muddle up the past, present and future.

  • Dystopia vs. Utopia mixed with Neill Blomkamp's Elysium and Christopher Nolan's Interstellar – Welcome to Deponia Doomsday!
  • Fan service: Some players called for an alternate ending and another part to the Deponia saga
  • Goal, Lonzo, Lotti and even Wenzel – Reunions with familiar and over 70 new oddball characters
  • The player discovers the floating city of Elysium for the first time
  • With around 20 hours of gameplay and over 100 game backgrounds, Deponia Doomsday is the largest and most elaborate Deponia game so far

We had the opportunity to try out the last game in the Deponia trilogy series, Doomsday on Playstation 4. Being that my family and I absolutely love playing video games, I thought it would be great to give this one a try as it seemed pretty cool and looked interesting.

When first starting the game, we are starting off in a dream scene that also doubles as a tutorial on how to move around the game. I thought this was really helpful as I had never played any of the other Deponia games before, so having that dream scene in the beginning was helpful. Once this is completed the next scene we see the main character, Rufus, as he is waking up from the dream and confused as to what just happened.

As we started to play this game, I loved how it was easy to pick up items to add to your inventory and use them throughout your adventure to help you along the way. Not only that, but some items you pick up to add to your inventory will work together to help you move along.

Not only was the game fun to play, it was easy to figure out and play being that it was a lot of point and clicks and I loved the look of the animation throughout the game. The dialogue throughout the game was pretty entertaining as well as Rufus is pretty funny and a bit sarcastic as are the other characters we run into during the game.

We took our time playing this game and enjoyed every bit of it. There were definitely times where we had to repeat some of the chapters as some of the puzzles were kind of tricky to get through and I have to admit I got stuck a few times, but we managed to get through it.  Doomsday definitely made me want to start from the beginning of the Deponia series so that I could get to know the full story line and characters a little better.

Deponia, Goodbye Deponia and Deponia Doomsday will be available for $19.99 on PlayStation 4, Xbox One and Steam. As a celebration of the completion of the series the Deponia Collection will be released on PlayStation 4 and Xbox One with all four installments for $39.99.

Deponia on Nintendo Switch will cost $39.99. The other adventures of Rufus and Goal will be available soon on Nintendo Switch as well and we will keep you posted once the other games are available on Nintendo Switch.

Disclosure: All opinions are my own. I received Deponia Doomsday on PS4 at no cost for the purpose of this review. No other compensation was received.
