Chaos on Deponia is a 2012 point-and-click adventure game developed and published by Daedalic Entertainment.[2] A sequel to Deponia, it continues the story of the main character Rufus as he attempts to escape from his home planet Deponia.[3]

Gameplay[edit]

The core gameplay has remained unchanged from the previous installment. The player controls Rufus across various highly detailed backgrounds, collecting and combining smaller objects and interacting with machines in order to solve puzzles and advance the plot further.

Synopsis[edit]

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 Elysium with her and save Deponia from certain doom while he's at it. The second adventure on Deponia tells a unique, self-contained story playable without further knowledge of the first installment. Fans of the first game discover new aspects of familiar characters' backgrounds and see open questions answered.

Reception[edit]

Reviews for Chaos on Deponia have been generally positive as it received an average of 78/100 on review aggregator website Metacritic.[4] 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.
