Tutorial:    Learn the game interface from Toni.

Prime Controller Ulysses announces to the Elysians that they are still waiting for Inspector Cletus and companion to return from the ruins of Porta Fisco. Cletus is checking if Deponia is inhabited and then the Organon will be given the go ahead to blow up the world of Deponia.

Bozo's cutter:

Goal wakes after smelling the smoking breakfast Rufus is cooking. Rufus is fishing at the moment. They are supposed to be at the Sea of Shards but Rufus changed destination to the cruiser route-ramp of the Organon monorail. The route will take them to the Upper Ascension Station in Porta Fisco where the Organon HQ is located.

The diving crane that Rufus attached to Bozo's cutter at the Sea of Shards catches something even though they are out of the water. Whatever it is pulled off the top of the cabin of the former Organon cruiser-Bozo's cutter.

Upper deck:    Go on deck to follow Goal. See that Bozo's cutter is on the monorail and has no roof. Go to the prow and see that the Organon cruiser is towing them.

Inside the cruiser, Cletus tells Bailiff Argus to stop because he realizes that Donna and not Goal is in the body of his fiancée. Oppenbot is to go with Cletus to find Goal.

Get to Goal:    Go to the stern. See Goal holding on the rope.

Climb the side wall of the container. See a signal stand at right side of screen that hits Rufus every few seconds.

Place the cursor on the signal label and then keep on clicking on it.

See Rufus hold onto the signal stand and dive to the front part to get closer to Goal.

Release Goal:    Rufus caught a big one - an Organon cruiser.

Check the crane fitting right of Goal holding on the rope of the diving crane.

Goal wants Rufus to tighten the screws while she releases the cable from the gear.

Turn the middle screw; then turn the right screw. The left screw falls off.

Turn the middle screw twice and the right screw falls off.

Turn the middle screw again and it falls off. Uh oh!

Hold on to Goal. Rufus ends up with Goal's jumpsuit.

Organon cruiser:

Barry the fan:    Goal holding on to the cable is turning round and round on the cable spool. Rufus is holding on the ramp of the cruiser. A guard stands by the cannon.

Barry, a Rufus' fan with a camera wants to know the technique Rufus will use to get rid of the guard. Barry will adjust his camera to whatever techniques Rufus will try.

Answer with any technique but the one that works is: I'll confuse him with my blackout tactics.  The guard is blinded and falls off.

Recap of Deponia series:    The dialogue is a recap of the past Deponia storyline with a Rufus twist.

Release Goal:    Use the cannon panel. The aim is off.

Press the large red button on right wall to expose a lever. It is the manual speed control.

Pulling the lever to slow down gets Barry to want an extreme action maneuver.

Push the lever to the red and see that the cable pulls the cutter to the cogs.

Click on the lever twice and fire ensues. Barry is on fire.

A box with a fire axe and hose drops down from ceiling rendering Barry unconscious.

Take the fire axe.

Take the hose and use it with the cannon. Fire the cannon and it wraps around the cable spool.

Pour coffee on the tidybot's empty coffee cup. If you don't, the tidy bot will clean the trail of coffee he makes.

Go back outside the room and follow the trail of coffee.

Meet the tidybot cleaning his trail of coffee. If you did not add coffee to the empty cup earlier, you will have to start over.

Go to the computer core room.

Distract the security cameras:

Goal follows Rufus to the room. Goal knows what Rufus is up to.

Goal says that the cameras cover only in 45 deg angle.

The squares are colored by the camera that can see it.

The cameras are 3 yellows, 2 reds and 3 blues.

Remember that yellow+blue=green; red+blue=purple and red+yellow=orange.

The aim is to clear a path for Goal to get to the terminal to be checked.

Exit and go left.

Hermes:    Talk to Hermes, the old man with the scythe.

Learn that this is the place where the Organon was created - a cloning factory. Yes - it is a waste processing plant.

Hermes calls Rufus - Prototype R. Hermes was the former head of this facility.

Learn that Rufus is one of 3 prototypes that predated the Organon. Prototype A, C and R: Argus, Cletus and Rufus. They were made with no respect for life; that is why there are only 3 left of the first batch.

Put back Hermes' eye.

Rufus was recloned after he died from the crash. Everything is organic except the nucleic acid; it is synthesized from radioactive waste.

The prototypes have hope. Rufus never learned from his mistakes. LOL.

Rufus releases his rage:    Use the bat on the 4 red steel beams.

Hermes is now the one that is depressed. He blames himself for what happened to Elysium and Deponia. He leaves to end his life.

A chamber opens and Goal's body collapses. She's still dead.

See Hermes commit suicide. He lost hope.

Flip the switch to 1 and see the lights turn yellow.

The mysterious 6th gauge is flickering red.

Pull the lever.

Uh oh! There's no nucleic acid left to get Goal to mature.

A baby Goal is cloned. The baby falls down the sewer pipe. She is now in the sewers under Porta Fisco.

Clone Rufus:

There is not enough time to stop Argus and the highboat from leaving, getting Goal and contacting the Resistance.

Hermes sacrifice himself and Rufus to get enough biomass to make 3 Rufus clones. Only one will have the nucleic acid to get Goal to mature.

The cloning was started by the vampire platypus using the setup with sandbags that pulls the lever of the cloning machine.

3 Rufus' appear in the cloning chamber.

Check all 3 Rufus' inventory to see who has the nucleic acid. The right Rufus has the nucleic acid.

Middle Rufus and Right Rufus fight over the nucleic acid.

Select Left Rufus to control the other 2 Rufus'. As the Left Rufus, take the nucleic acid.

The nucleic acid falls into one of the sewer pipes. The 3 jump into the sewer pipes and go their separate ways.

See the transmitter flashing yellow at center of the complex.

Use the antenna on the transmitter. The transmitter falls down to the rotor and is still flashing.

Pass the blades:    Talk to the other 2 guys and see the chances of dropping down there.

Cletus calculated that there is 1 out of 3 chances of succeeding.

Talk to Argus to start the count.

Place the cursor under Rufus. The count starts. At count 2 or first chance the down arrow appears - jump.

If the others caught on; start over by talking to Argus again. Jump at count 2.

Cletus and Rufus jump.

Get to the transmitter:    A dazed Rufus is woken up by Argus. Cletus is nowhere to be seen.

See the flashing transmitter at bottom left. Look around.

See screws holding the bridge. The arch at under the rotor blades at center of bridge has holes for missing screws.

Tilt the bridge by removing one screw at left side. Place that screw on the middle of the bridge.

Remove the other left screw and the 2 screws at right end. This makes a seesaw.

Move over to the left and take the transmitter.

Destroy the transmitter:    Use the transmitter on the rotor.

Rufus can't just throw it on the rotor because it will just ricochet.

Use a screw on the hole where the transmitter was to hold the bridge steady. Go close at right end under Argus.

Use the transmitter on the rotor. One, two and three.

Deponia is saved.

Stop the destruction of the highboat:

The rotor is blocked by the transmitter and will cause the breakup of the highboat.

Before Rufus is helped by Argus; Argus wants Rufus' help in the coup of the Council of Elders.

Goal felt the shaking of the highboat. She can already see the airlocks of Elysium.

Ulysses will keep the ship steady while Goal organize the evacuation of her friends from Deponia and possibly the Organons.

Rufus declines to help with the coup.

Argus removes the transmitter blocking the rotor.

Cletus wrestles with Argus.

The 3 end up on a blade each.

Goal:    Goal has to choose the one to save.

I am Rufus!

I know something that the other two definitely don't.

Doesn't matter what I say... we're just going round in circles here.

Who cares which one of us is Rufus? Just leave us here and save yourself.

It's true. I'm not Rufus. Rufus points to Cletus.

Absolutely sure.

Use the down arrow and Let go. Rufus sacrifices himself.

Barry? Barry lands on a space station.

Elysium:    Cletus is dressed as Rufus. He gives his ideas to save Elysium to the Council of Elders.

Goal looks out from the balcony. Remember what she said under truth serum.
