More chaos, more destruction, more Rufus. Not one, not two, but three Rufuses cause all kinds of crazy mayhem in the long-awaited adventure comedy Goodbye Deponia: The Organon plans the destruction of Deponia, the lovely Goal has (once again) disappeared, and anti-hero Rufus just can't seem to stop getting in his own way.
All inventor and free spirit Rufus wanted to do was to get off the junkyard planet of Deponia and move to Elysium, the paradise orbiting Deponia as a spaceship reserved for the highest echelons of society. Goal, the ex-Elysian girl that Rufus has fallen head over heels for, still seems to be the key to his endeavor...and to the elevator that will get him to space. Finally, Rufus has come up with a seemingly perfect plan.
And yet, everything that could possibly go wrong suddenly does go wrong. Rufus finds himself (initially in disguise) on a highway cruiser amongst stern-faced officials of the Organon, while Goal goes missing. When Rufus stumbles upon a cloning machine, he believes to have found his way out. A clone copy is supposed to help him out of his predicament. But an "inexplicable" error causes complications and Goal slips from our hero's reach once again. Now, he has to solve three major problems: He needs to find Goal again, reach Elysium and prevent the destruction of the entire planet of Deponia by the hand of the Organon.
Three problems that only three Rufuses could solve – and thus, the luckless inventor decides to clone himself! This leads to crazy ramifications for the player: In Goodbye Deponia, the player occasionally needs to control all three Rufuses, using them to complete tasks together – despite Rufus stumbling over himself so often.
Goodbye Deponia is the epic conclusion to the Deponia trilogy and sequel to the best German game of 2013 (German Computer Game Awards). The award-winning Deponia series comprises of three wacky tales of adventure from the junkyard planet Deponia. These classic point & click romps not only delight comedy fans and adventure veterans, but also newcomers to the genre. The humorous Deponia series impresses with beautiful, hand-drawn 2D comic graphics, sarcastic dialogues and plenty of black humor. It has received numerous press awards, among them the German Computer Game Award (Deutscher Computerspielpreis) and many other German developer awards.

Goodbye Deponia is the third and last game from this series of point and click game adventures from Daedalic Entertainment, well known from creating their games mostly on Photoshop and nothing more(pretty much), like Edna & Harvey for example.
Be aware this is not a kids game and you will see and hear very dark and twisted humor...from racism to pederasty jokes.
*Goodread more length for an adventure game like 10hours
*Finally you got an ending...kinda.
*Rufus is funnier than ever
*Some really clever puzzles
*Tons of good dialogs and superb voice acting
*Nice art style
*Good story (crazy but good)
*Some new mechanics makes this third game still feel like a new deponia game
*You can skip puzzles like always if you get stuck
*Great music and the songs between chapters are great and very funny
*The ending, you will hate it or you will love it there is no in between
*The puzzles sometimes are really frustrating
*The jokes sometimes are really really dark even offensive
*Goal is like always unconscious or sleep

In many ways, I am extremely disappointed that this series had not reached what I felt was a higher potential, but it also delivers a frantically great experience that will have you entirely immersed in the fascinating world it presents.
Throughout much of the game, the humor that was once so charming crosses partly over to being crude as well as insensitive. And, the opportunitiesread more they had to develop these characters more, for us to see them thrive and gain more through their experiences, to grasp the reality of their situation, then to grow wiser as a result, was all missed. At its core, all the characters are static. Rather than growing and being the preferable dynamic characters they should have been, they learn nothing and remain the same. It really is a shame, because all these characters are so likable and interesting. Instead of development, we had been given an abrupt ending that very poorly tried to end the series with an open note, but absolutely failed to do so. Still, the settings and environments remain beautiful, and the animation never failed to impress.
The Deponia series, despite its shortcomings, proved to be a very memorable trilogy of games filled to the brim with a sense of wild imagination that spurred my mind alive. It possessed additional potential that could have propelled it to become a true classic, but as it stands, I feel it is still well-worth your time if you're even remotely interested in this type of genre.

Daedalic's Deponia series must be, without a doubt, one of the finest adventure game series ever created. With its gorgeous cartoon graphics, terrific localization, amazing characters, its gripping, epic farce of a narrative and puzzles that are logical *and* beautiful in their glorious stupidity, it has won over point-and-click adventure fanatics 'round the globe (including, quiteread more obviously, the writer of this review). Thank the gods that Goodbye Deponia does nothing to detract from this golden reputation! The ending left me a little sad at first, but it is fitting in its way -- and more than a little open-ended. While the designer, Poki, has mentioned that he will never return to the Rufus and Goal saga, he has stated that he would like to explore other aspects of Deponian/Elysian existence someday; I can only hope that after his next few projects (which are sure to be excellent) he will consider revisiting this captivating world.
Do not play this game until you have played the others! They are all more than worth GOG's price.
(A side note: The Deponia series, particularly this installment, has received a great deal of criticism from the hypersensitive set for its "offensive" themes. Rest assured: the content of these games isn't nearly half as salty as an average episode of Family Guy or South Park.)
