More chaos, more destruction, more Rufus. Not one, not two, but three Rufuses cause all kinds of crazy mayhem in the long-awaited adventure comedy Goodbye Deponia - part three of the Deponia series. The Organon plans the destruction of Deponia, the lovely Goal has (once again) disappeared, and anti-hero Rufus just can't seem to stop getting in his own way. All he wanted to do was to get off the junkyard planet of Deponia and move to Elysium, the paradise orbiting Deponia as a spaceship reserved for the highest echelons of society. Finally, Rufus has come up with a seemingly perfect plan... The award-winning Deponia series comprises four wacky tales of adventure from the junkyard planet Deponia. These classic point & click romps not only delight comedy fans and adventure veterans, but also newcomers to the genre.

The most inspiring speech you can hear around.
I'm an ass!
And you're all asses, too!
It's time to show the world what's inside us.
Long live the Organon!

Having now played this entire series as well as many other point and click games similar to this one, I can recommend this series - albeit conditionally.
The interface and mechanics in this game are top notch. Perhaps it is because Daedalic has made so many point and click games before, but they've clearly perfected the genre when it comes to play-ability. Easy to access inventory, double clicking on doors to quickly move between areas instead of waiting for walk animations, even having multiple characters share items in creative ways all points to a very well crafted game overall. Clearly, a lot of thought, time, and effort was put in to make the player experience enjoyable and fun.
The visuals are great and have been through the entire series, the music is surprisingly orchestral and rich for a game so goofy, and the puzzles can be completed logically about 75% of the time without a walkthrough guide, which is honestly high for the genre.
Now onto the most glaring issue with this game and the series overall: the sexism. There is absolutely no easy way around this issue and it has been glaringly obvious since the first game. The story overall is decent, but the way that every single female character is written is terrible and one dimensional to the point of objectification. Goal serves as the love interest for the protagonist and for about 80% of the story through all the games she is unconscious or absent. She is treated like an object in so many ways, and it is played off for comedy every time it happens. The amount of times the story makes excuses to have her in a bikini or her underwear is exhausting, and just because the protagonist is presented as an anti-hero, it doesn't excuse the developers of the game itself from how they created Goal's character. You can have a sexist anti-hero protagonist in a non-sexist game, but this is absolutely a sexist anti-hero protagonist in a blatantly sexist game. Other character examples specifically in THIS game are Tony, who is the protagonist's emotional ex that is only useful to you when stunted from her growth and brought BACK to her emotional state (again, played for laughs) and a trans character who is presented in a stereotypical and problematic way. Blatantly.
TLDR; this game hasn't aged well, and its main issue is with how sexist it is. The developers have even come out blaming this perceived sexism on the anti-hero protagonist, but if you actually play the game it's clearly a sexist GAME overall, not just a sexist character. The mechanics are near perfect and the visuals and music are fantastic so its still very much worth playing but keep in mind the male gaze that it is presented through when doing so.

Review from Steam

The trilogy has come to its logical conclusion, and I'd like to say a few words about it. The last part impressed me as much as the previous two, and in my opinion, it is a great ending of the trilogy. It managed to retain everything that the first two parts were loved for. I won't repeat the features of the game, as they are familiar to everyone who knows canon of the game. From the disadvantages, I can mention only a couple of unloaded locations, but If to compare with all awesomeness, it is nothing. So, I confidently recommend it!
