Brighton, May 04 th, 2012 – Brighton-based publisher Lace Mamba Global today confirms the retail release date of the PC point & click adventure game Deponia for the UK and Ireland for June 29 th, 2012. Additional releases in Australia, New Zealand, the Benelux countries and Portugal are planned to follow shortly.
Deponia is the next big adventure game release by Daedalic Entertainment, creators of award-winning genre highlights like A New Beginning and The Whispered World, brought to life with detailed hand-painted backgrounds in widescreen format and top-quality cartoon animation.
Deponia is a fast-paced comedy of errors and one of the most unusual love stories in gaming history. The twist-filled story takes its off-beat characters all over trash planet Deponia, a unique game world in the style of Douglas Adams, Terry Pratchett and Matt Groening. From Kuvaq, an improvised village built inside a giant trash heap, to the swimming black market and the dark corners of the elevated planetary railways.
Rufus, one of the playable main characters, is not a pleasant guy. Ill-tempered and entirely too convinced of his own greatness, he lives at the edge of a small settlement somewhere in the most remote sector of the garbage-covered planet Deponia. He dreams of a better life in the floating cities of wealth and beauty high above the planet surface. When the angelic Goal falls from these privileged spheres down into a neighbouring trash heap, Rufus sees his chance. He decides to bring the unconscious beauty back to her home. Only a vague hope of making it off Deponia at first, he soon formulates an unscrupulous plan, as he learns that he is a dead ringer for Goal’s upper-class husband. The planned handover is only the beginning of a wild chase across Deponia full of twists, turns and mystifying mix-ups…
