Delisting

Goodbye Deponia and the Deponia Collection were delisted on PlayStation 4 across Australian, Europen, and North American territories in late August of 2020. August was the last month that Goodbye Deponia was included in a discount sale on the PlayStation Store. No explanation was given but by early November of 2020 Daedalic Entertainment began replying to Twitter inquiries with the following comment:

We are sorry, but it seems that the perspective at Sony on some scenes in the game changed drastically – which is why it will likely stay this way until something changes about this again. Unfortunately this affects the [Deponia] collection with Goodbye Deponia as well.

Daedalic Entertainment Tweet

It is unclear exactly what content was brought into question but the entire series has been criticized (Rock Paper Shotgun, Big Tall Words) over racism, sexism, and its representations of cultures and social classes. Sony’s scrutiny in Australia appears to have been even more strict leading to the delisting of the original Deponia in that region as well. As of December 2020 no entries in the series have been delisted on other digital platforms.


About the Game

Daedalic Entertainment, once called “Lucasarts from Germany“ by the GameStar magazine, invites the players into a fantastic comedy adventure that revolves around a crazy love story of Rufus and Goal.

In Deponia, the world has degenerated into a vast garbage dump, in which the crotchety Rufus ekes out his sorry existence. He is part of the lowest social class, doomed to live his life in literal mountains of trash. He hopes for an opportunity to get into the world of the rich, who live in a floating city high above the clouds. Fate seems to smile on the snotty good-for-nothing when one day the attractive lady named Goal from the higher sector plummets into one of the trash heaps. Rufus decides to help the young woman out by taking her back to her husband. When he notices that Goal’s husband is a dead ringer for himself, he hatches a diabolical scheme to gain access to the upper world. However, things don’t work out quite as planned, since he has feelings for the beauty which limits his usual unscrupulousness.

Help Rufus, the poor boy from the junkyard, to win over the girl from heaven. Only with this rich girl from his dreams he might be able to escape Deponia and, unexpectedly, to save the planet.
