Tutorial:    Learn the game interface.

The past:    The Organons came to Deponia to look for Goal, an Elysian. Cletus, Goal's fiancé was in cahoots with Ulysses the mysterious leader of Organon. Ulysses and Argus, his right hand wanted the ascension code that is in Goal's brain implant. After acquiring the code, they plan to erase her memory. They want to suppress the knowledge that Deponia is inhabited so that they can blow up the world.

The one that restored Goal's memory is Rufus.

The future:    Goal listens to Rufus tell her how he got here. Goal can't remember.

The present:    Grandma Utz can't believe that the hero described by Doc is Rufus.

Get the hammer from Grandma Utz' house:

Rufus says that he has changed and that he wants to borrow a hammer to get Bozo's cutter shipshape.

Go to the toolbox under the plant box at right. Take the power inverter and then the hammer.

Listen to the conversation between Grandma Utz and Doc.

The hammer nails John Thomas the bird to the post. Pull out the hammer.

The bird is flung inside the bathroom and the hammer falls under the table.

Open the bathroom door and see John Thomas inside the power box.

Pull out the bird and it falls inside the toilet. Use the flush handle. It doesn't work. He's just getting a hammer.

Try to pick up the hammer from under the table. Fire! Rufus has the tablecloth.

Use the power inverter on the box in the bathroom. Now the bathroom has pressure.

Pull the flush handle. John Thomas is in the tank under water.

Press the flush button at the sink. John Thomas is floating in the sink.

Press the button at right and see that it is for garbage disposal.

Use the tablecloth on the water in the sink. The tablecloth is caught in the blade of the garbage disposal.

Press the button at right. (I'm sorry.) Take the soaked tablecloth.

Use the soaked tablecloth on the fire. Take the hammer.

Save Doc or go to Elysium:

See Rufus attached to a large blade ready to be shot to Elysium. Doc talks to him while under the guillotine blade. Rufus explains his Rube Goldberg contraption.

Step on the bellows to pop the cork. The cork travels through Rufus' contraption and knocks Doc out cold under the guillotine blade.

Step on the panhandle right of bellow to get the knife. Use the knife on the fireworks above Rufus.

The gunpowder passes through Rufus' sleeve and is now in the pan. Step on panhandle again to get the gunpowder inside the bellows.

Step on the bellows to blast gas that propels the gas cylinder into Doc. That action saves Doc from the guillotine and also blasts Rufus into space with a whirling stopover at the rock.

Escape pod, Goal and Cletus:

Rufus lands inside the escape pod where Goal and Cletus are on. They are on the way to Elysium.

Cletus explains that Goal is split into three persona: naive one, the fighter and the one that sides with Cletus. Goal can't remember a thing because Goal's implant is damage.

Check the badge on the floor. Rufus blows the dust off and see ejector seat, heat ray and attack bear icons.

Press the button after selecting which action is appropriate. Oh No. It ejects Goal off the escape pod.

Goal is holding on the rope of the escape pod. Cletus fires and the rope is cut into 2.

At the Rust Red Sea, Bozo says not to worry; Rufus is like a wombat. Aaaaaaaaaah. Goal! Rufus!

Cruiser:    Bailiff Argus is in the cruiser and talks with the Chief blaster. They are planning to destroy the zone around the Rust Red Sea before they blow up the whole planet.

Argus is waiting to hear from Inspector Cletus. Cletus is heard from.

The trip to Elysium will be in a week. If not, Argus will release a bomb from this Blast Tower to destroy areas around the Rust Red Sea. See the blast area.

Get 4 slides shown by Cletus.

Shave Donna's cat:    Press the red button at bottom of the radio setup. The pink door opens. See a kitty.

Use the razorfish on the kitty. Rufus enters. Uh Oh.

Donna:    See pink haired Donna. Her glasses' right lens is covered. She twitches. Take note of her movements and what it might mean.

Use dialogue: What did she say?  That I'll be made into shark food. Go Ahead. Rufus is now a member of the Unorganized Crime.

Bridge:    Go through door at left side to be on the bridge. Take the tournament hand. Exit the submersible.


Garlef:    Go back to the tavern and Garlef. Talk to Garlef sitting upstairs about playing the game.

Rock-paper-scissor:    2 fingers mean scissors, closed hand-fist is rock and open hand is paper.

Scissor defeats paper; rock defeats scissors and paper defeats rock.

Any attempt to play with loaded fingers automatically loses round.

The stakes are fingers. First person to lose all fingers loses the round.

See button that add fingers at top and button that takes off finger at bottom right.

I believe the razorfish at left is "loading the hand" which automatically lose round.

Garlef likes to use scissors at first round and rock on the second round. Have fun.

Garlef teaches the secret knock to Rufus. Go down and talk to Baby Goal about the Resistance and secret knock. Baby Goal leaves ahead of Rufus.


Knock, knock:    Go to Dark Alley and be by the door to the Resistance movement. On the way, the loud music at marketplace makes Rufus forget the knock rhythm.

Knock on door. Rufus messes up the secret knock.

Go back to Garlef at Tavern to learn the secret knock again.

Leave the tavern. In in-game menu; lower the music volume under settings and then go through marketplace to get to dark alley. See Garlef enter the door.

Knock on door and Liebold is not sure if that is the new knock. He asks to knock the old one. Try another knock and it isn't that one either. Liebold warns about knock-knock jokes.

He says to try again. Hide in the crate at right. Wait and Liebold will come out looking for Rufus. He knocks the old rhythm to enter.

Exit the crate and knock on the door again. Finn asks that you raise the music volume again.

Janosch and the Conshept:   

Meet Janosch and hear his lispy words. Rufus cannot stop laughing.

Talk to Janosch. Learn about the concept. Show Rufus' conshept by using the slides on the projector.

After the presentation, the rebels want Rufus to summarize the information.

Select any choice that doesn't have any words in the dialogue that is difficult for Janosch to repeat. This will let Rufus control himself from laughing.

The blot is a symbol. An Organon bombing fort. Our enemy will try to eradicate Deponia.

Baby Goal verifies what Rufus says.

Our team will dare to attack. I obtained topographical data locating one particular Organon fort.

...detonate a bomb here and put an end to all life, marine and on land. Goal and her brain implant might mean an important trump in our hand.

Argus landed at the blast tower where Cletus is right now.

Baby Goal is very impressed with Rufus. Now all 3 Goals agree to have surgery.

Release the hostages:

Get in Doc's office:

Janosh and the others are standing in front of Doc's workplace. They have a plan to take Goal's cartridge with the ascension code.

Donna and her goons are inside the office and Doc and Goal are hostages.

Knock on the door. Someone inside gives Rufus a remote and tells him to use it on Liebold.

Use the remote on Liebold. A portal opens inside the shed. Enter the portal.

Meet the future Rufus. Present day Rufus doesn't believe the time travel event and thinks the future Rufus is Cletus.

I used these dialogues: I want proof. Genital rash. Oh well. I'll rescue Goal, then.

Future Rufus will take care of the rebels and tells Rufus to free Goal and Doc.

Rufus enters the right portal.

Donna, Nod and Wink:

Rufus comes out of the asbestos cabinet. See that Doc and Goal are bound and gagged. Nod has a crowbar and Wink has the weapon that Rufus wanted.

Talk to Lady Goal and then Doc. Learn that Donna has an implant.

Open the drawer by the ramp. Take Donna's blue remote and Liebold's purple remote.

Exchange implants:    Talk to Lady Goal about the implant and remote. She refuses to give her cartridge.

Goal looks for the non-existent bottle of champagne and Rufus takes her cartridge.

In inventory combine Donna's remote with Lady Goal's cartridge. Use Donna's remote on Donna.

Donna's body is taken over by Lady Goal. Donna-Lady Goal shoots Nod and Wink.

Donna-Lady Goal gives Spunky Goal's cartridge and asks for Donna's remote.

Take the crowbar and weapon.

Take care of the rebels:

Portal:    Go through the mysterious anomaly-portal. Rufus sees Liebold and an unconscious Garlef. Future?

Prepare the portals:    Back at Doc's office, exit through the door at top of the stairs. Hear the other Rufus knock on the door.

Future Rufus does the dialogue done earlier. He gives Liebold's remote with a cartridge to the other Rufus.

The portals have to be connected. Use the crowbar on the machine with electrodes.

Both doors become portals. The other Rufus drops in. Both Rufus do the dialogue done earlier.

Select Zeeblezooble - the word that Rufus used earlier.

Wait for the resistance to enter at the top of the hour:    Rufus waits for the resistance to enter as Janosch planned.

Check the clock and get punched when Rufus shakes it. Hear Janosch start the plan.

Garlef enters and Rufus' weapon jams. Garlef was taken care of by the clock.

Liebold enters after the other Rufus used the remote on him. Rufus kisses Liebold thinking that he is Spunky Goal and Liebold faints.

Lady Goal:    Rufus enters the office and sees that Lady Goal is gone and the hostages are still tied up.

Learn from Doc that Lady Goal went through the portal and that the cartridge is a cleaner; not one of the Goals. Janosch enters through door. The portals are now gone.

Lady Goal-Donna talks to Rufus. She bolted the door to gain time to find Cletus. Talk to Lady Goal-Donna.

Learn that Lady Goal wants to go home. Also learn that Elysium is a starship to go to Utopia. Elysium needs to generate energy for the travel and for that the destruction of Deponia is needed. It took decades to build the blast towers and they have to go now or Elysium will fall back to the planet.

Lady Goal has to be at Porta Fisco by day after tomorrow and be with Cletus or else it is too late.

Chase Lady Goal:

New plans:

Janosch:    At Floating Black Market dock, Janosch waits for Rufus. Rufus uses the Dragon of Invisibility to try to pass past Janosch.
