Tales of Deponia

Sucks.

The game came out 2012 I think? Anyway we picked it up for free some time ago (possibly years) on Steam and since it's Point-n-Click I thought I'd give it a try.

The art is beautiful. The concept of a trash planet is pretty cool too. The characters are awful. The protag is... a jerk, douchebag, dickweed, hateful, annoying, self-absorbed, deluded, complaining...

The final straw was when a beautiful girl ("Goal", as in the goal of the game, get the girl - GET IT HUR HURRR) ends up unconscious and the mayor of the junk town has to decide who gets to give her shelter and nurse her back to health. One guy wants her to help him clean out the mud pits. Another guy wants her to help him stack pipes. Our protagonist? ... well as soon as he hears she's unconscious he begins "She belongs to me" and when they ask what he wants her for, he gets That Look on his face.

I uninstalled the game.

It's a real shame that the art and concept had to get dragged down like that.
