Dominique Pamplemousse has some negative reveiws, but now is mostly positive. When I first saw this game in the Steam Store it had mixed reveiws. But this game is not all that bad. Yes, there are bad things about it, that's why there are negative reveiws, but I must say the game was worth the money I spent on it.

The bad traits of this game are clearly and without doubt, bad things. There's no arguement that make the bad traits go away, but the good traits do outweigh it. Firstly, the game is quite short, surprisingly short. This SHOULDN'T be a surprise though, when you think about how hard claymation is to do, how long it takes, and it's clear that the game makers put a lot of effort into rhis game, just not enough to make it a full length game, and obviously the time also depends on how good you are at completeing the game.

Secondly, the voices, Dominique Pamplemousse is about singing, about the music industry and opera. The bad singing voices at the start of the game are really cringeworthy, they make you feel uncomfortable, because we are not used to listening to people sing normally, and this game perfectly demonstrates that, (which is on of the reasons I love it!) it shows that some people sing normally. The singing is not so much bad, as normal. After a few minutes of the characters all singing you get used to it, and playing a game with an opera sort of stlye can get quite enjoyable, when you realise the voices aren't really THAT bad. And it's such a special experience seeing someone in a musical type setting who doesn't have a strangely perfect voice.

The game makes a lot of claims. It claims that it is a game about gender, and economy, which it really isn't about that much. Yes, the protagonist is non-binary, and appears to express their thoughts about thism, and having all the rest of the characters confused about the protagonist's gender. It is clear that this game planned for this to be a big theme, but it didn't really turn out that way, because the game is clearly too short for them to have any discussions about gender or even the economy.

Dominique Pamplemousse does seem to have some bad things about it, but it is really worth buying, as it is a beautiful claymation game, and I really am in love with any type of claymation, or any game made with real life materials. This game really has some nice subtle discussions on auto-tune and the music industry, which is not a common plot for video games to have. This game is also in black and white, which is another rare thing for video games, as video games are too advanced to have really gone through a black and white period (if you don't count the time when games could only be in two colours) as televisions did.

One last little touch on this nice game, which barely has anything to do with the game, is that it has DLC that you can buy that will give you the sheet music, and sheet music is such a lovely thing to buy as DLC, which is really the whole reason I bought it, but I enjoyed it past the sheet music. This game isn't really that expensive and not really that long, but if you have around $5 you should think about buying it.

A b&w clamation "walking simulator"

Pro:
Unique style
Inexpensive
Steam cards
Captions ... seriously how often do you see that?
Can run on a freaking Atom processor
The DLC has freaking sheet music ... seriously how often do you see that?

Con:
Dialogue is more of a song than dialogue
At times funny, a times trying to be funny but failed
Short
Not much of a game, more of a audio novel?

Overall:
5/10 +1 cards, +1 style, -1 short for the price = 6/10 (7/10 if you get this on sale or in a bundle)

Good story (not really a game) that you should pick up on sale.

A friend and I jokingly call this the Most Indie Game of the year - not the best, just the most.

That's not to say it's a bad thing. I play a lot of games. More than I should, for sure. Dominique Pamplemousse was a nice change of pace for an hour and half, considered I downloaded it with no background other than that it came in a Humble Bundle I had sitting around months. Given that, I enjoyed it.

The game is not AAA quality - it's very far below that. The game is very quirky but that's what makes it fun.

It's hard to give this game a solid recommendation. It's an alright dialogue-driven adventure game where some of the dialogue is sung, like a musical. However, most of the singing is pretty bad and off-key. This might be a reference to how autotuned mainstream music is nowadays, a topic that the game touches upon. Intentional or not, it did make my ears bleed a bit. The clay models used to depict the characters are hideous and the stop-motion only has a few frames so it never really feels authentic. The story is nothing to write home about, a short slice-of-life about gender equality and a bad economy (and autotuned pop music). Game is quite short too. Took me less than an hour and a half (that's less time than what is required to get the steam trading cards for the game).

Took roughly 1.5 hours and... well, I can safely say it has been the most 'indie' game related experience I've had this year.

Seriously, black and white claymation musical dialogue-tree adventure game about a transgender inventor turned private detective investigating Auto-Tune usage in music industry? That's as far from dudebro shooter as you can go in gaming I think.
Not sure if it's actually worth of your or anyone's time. If you like experimental 'games', maybe. Don't expect too much though.

Also, as weird as that sounds when talking about a musical game, the singing was uniformly terrible.
