Daedalic Releases Goodbye Deponia On Linux

Posted by , | Views: 6,617
Daedalic Entertainment have released the third and final standalone part of the Deponia Trilogy which have seen Linux releases over the last few months. This is not to be confused with Deponia: The Complete Journey which was released back in July for Linux and is essentially the three games bundled together in one game with a few extra goodies.

Though this isn’t terribly exciting news in and of itself since we have had the complete trilogy available for some time now, it is good news for owners of the standalone games wishing to re-play them on Linux and also perhaps a sign of more to come.

I played the three standalone games through Wine (something which I no longer do nowadays) and found them to be some of the best adventure games I have ever played. At the same time, I have to say that if you are looking to play the Deponia trilogy and do not own any of them, I would recommend getting The Complete Journey since you would save yourself a bit of money and the games are much better played as a trilogy.

Hopefully Daedalic will continue their steady porting of games - particularly The Dark Eye games which I found to be on par with Deponia - and since most of their library is available on Mac this does seem plausible. As a publisher on Linux they currently have Journey Of A Roach and Munin available and there are signs that Randal’s Monday is soon to receive a Linux port. Article taken from GamingOnLinux.com.

I liked the puzzle solving of the first game, but not enough to sit through any more of the truly awful storytelling. The protagonist was supposed to be an arsehole, but that doesn't give the writers a free pass on the misogynistic, transphobic, ball of hate in the rest of the game. In my headcannon they all die a horrible death.

Rufus is a dick. Not even a lovable scamp like our furry psychopath friends Sam & Max. I don't know how anyone could actually like him as a protagonist. Sorry, Sanshiro. ;) Still I couldn't help enjoying the trilogy. The world of Deponia is refreshingly original and the production values are mostly top-notch. IMHO well worth playing and paying for.

In my headcanon you've got a deadly weapon mounted on your noggin.
