Award-Winning Adventure Game Deponia Gets iPad Release


Originally released in 2012, Deponia was a comedic point & click adventure game about a selfish tinkerer looking to escape from his trash-filled world. Literally, the world has degraded to the point where it is mostly a garbage dump. Now, Daedalic Entertainment is releasing the award-winning adventure game exclusively for the iPad, so players can explore the junk planet Deponia again (or for the first time) with Rufus and Goal.


Players take control of Rufus, a chaotic and narcissistic tinker with dreams of leaving the trash planet of Deponia behind His destination? The flying utopia of Elysium that floats high above. Opportunity appears when the beautiful Goal falls into the junk at his feet. His plan is to leave Deponia by returning her to Elysium. The ensuing journey is intended to be a fast-paced chase of comedy and errors. Hand-drawn graphics and comic-style animation bring the award-winning story to life on iPad.


Deponia will be available in mid-August for iPad at the price of $9.99 USD. It is the first game in the Deponia trilogy; there is yet no word on whether the remaining two games will be brought to iPad. More information on Daedalic Entertainment, their German adventure games, and many other projects can be found on their website, Facebook, and Twitter. Those interested in checking out the complete trilogy can head over to Steam.
