Reception[edit]

Chaos on Deponia and its predecessor, Deponia, totaled 200,000 global sales by April 2013.[4] The Deponia series overall achieved sales of 2.2 million copies by 2016, most of which derived from deep-discount sales, according to Daedalic's Carsten Fichtelmann. He noted that "full price sales were a little part of that [2.2 million] number".[5]

Reviews for Chaos on Deponia have been generally positive as it received an average of 78/100 on review aggregator website Metacritic.[6] Critics praised the game for improvements of the pacing and writing over its predecessor, with others calling it too similar to the first game but still enjoyable.[citation needed]
