    But is that Deponia "Complete" or "Deponia Complete"?

    I'm guessing that it is the former, that you get individual keys for the three games. The reason I ask is because the latter also exists, or...

    Looking through various links, it sounds reliable.

    Ars Technica's benchmark showed the AMD card getting a 50% boost in framerate, which is no joke. While Nvidia's 980 Ti saw framerate instead...

    The original game is still on Steam, it just isn't sold by Steam anymore. It wasn't actually replaced or removed. It wasn't even delisted, as you can find it with Search. You just can't buy it.
