Daedalic Entertainment announced that the original Deponia is being released as a fully HD release on the PlayStation 4 this November.
The game will feature completely reworked controls in order to take advantage of the DualShock 4, this includes easier navigation and interactivity within the game world, such as context sensitive button prompts and easy-to-use dialogue cues.
The game will be available as both a digital release on the PlayStation Network and as a physical release at participating retail outlets. According to the press release, the game will only release physically in specific countries. They don’t mention which countries that happens to be in the press release.
The original Deponia sees players in charge of the lovably obnoxious inventor, Rufus. He lives on the junk planet known as Deponia and has dreams of eventually building a spaceship and heading up to the space utopia known as Elysium, which hovers over the planet just outside the planet’s mesosphere.
Yes, the game has the exact same plot as the movie Elysium, but Deponia beat Elysium to the market by an entire year. So technically, maybe, Neill Blomkamp took a little too much inspiration from the German development outfit, Daedalic Entertainment.
Regardless of who influenced who, the game will feature point-and-click exploits, typical of what you would find in most games within the genre, along with some dark humor and a bit of sexy-time to keep things a bit light. You can see what the game looks like running on the PS4 in HD via with the official announcement trailer below.
They’re not just bringing over the original Deponia from PC to home console, they’re also planning on bringing over the whole series, due to be made available over the course of the next 12 months. Deponia will also see the light of day on the Xbox One, as well.
