Today, Daedalic Entertainment have confirmed that they will be bringing protagonist Rufus back to our lives for a fourth time with Deponia Doomsday. It’ll be the fourth instalment of the most successful German adventure series of all time, and you won’t have to wait long to get your hands on it.
Daedalic are bringing Deponia Doomsday to PC, Mac and Linux on March 1st, and have already confirmed that retail and console versions for PS4 and Xbox One will follow later in the year. It’s also been confirmed that the story will follow Goodbye Deponia, which was the first game developed 100% by Jan Müller-Michaelis.
In Deponia Doomsday, the flying city of Elysium has fallen, hideous Fewlocks inhabit the junk planet Deponia and Rufus is apparently the sole (human) survivor. He sees only one way out: Deponia must be blown up. When Rufus suddenly awakes in his bed, however, he’ll have to establish whether what he saw was a true premonition. It’s useful, then, that Rufus finds a time machine and immediately sets out to duly muddle up the past, present and future.
The game’s Steam listing confirms the following features:
Dystopia vs. Utopia mixed with Neill Blomkamp’s Elysium and Christopher Nolan’s Interstellar – Welcome to Deponia Doomsday!
Fan service: Some players called for an alternate ending and another part to the Deponia saga
Rufus travels through time – with dramatic consequences
Goal, Lonzo, Lotti and even Wenzel – Reunions with familiar and over 70 new oddball characters
The player discovers the floating city of Elysium for the first time
With around 20 hours of gameplay and over 100 game backgrounds, Deponia Doomsday is the largest and most elaborate Deponia game so far
Deponia Doomsday serves a timeless (!) genre and once again resurrects classic adventures
Deponia Doomsday will get its PC release early next week, and will cost $29.99.
