"A stop-motion noir detective story adventure game musical made of clay and cardboard - call it pretentious garbage or the most artful game in history."

“This is the all-singing point-and-click adventure that you must bellow out to all of your neighbors!”

Adventure Gamers

“One look at Kiai's stop motion musical detective adventure game about gender and the economy makes it easy to see why it's nominated for four IGF 2014 awards, including the Seumas McNally Grand Prize.”

Awesome little adventure game if you enjoy its odd musical delivery of its story. It's a love or hate it affair but at this price (still on sale on a humble bundle as of today) it's worth taking a shot on a game that dares to deliver it's content in a unconventional way.

CUTE

It was with a heavy heart I started this game, not expecting anything heavy in return and I was not disappointed.
-it's light humour is uplifting,
-my internet was cut temporarily and made the choice to play a game without cloud save (THIS),
- Of course I wanted to play every thing other than this..
-it isn't a long game, it succeeded in lifting the cares of the world off my mind for the duration of the game,
-the graphics are derived from clay or putty sculptings, movement is activated by point and click of the mouse,
(the picture is in black & white-remember black & white TV; like that)

DIALOGUE IN THIS GAME IS MADE UP OF TALK AND SINGING
-I realise this may repel some buyers;
this game is a MUSICAL at the core interspersed in the dialogue is SONG..

EFFECT OF GAME ON ME
-soon enough I ended the game with a renewed idea of WHAT fun is,
-& I was LEFT WEARING A SMILE because of this games' light-heartedness,


I recommend this game;

Game On.

Initially, I wasn't attracted by Dominique Pamplemousse's style. But I was still intrigued by that game sounding so French (I mean, Dominique is also used in French and Pamplemousse is a fruit). After getting it, I decided to try it. Besides, it's not a heavy file and I'm still trying to run after all my backlog trading cards.

It's a point and click game in black and white, with characters in... well, you know the stuff that you can use to model? Well, the animation is really well done even if they chose to add a grainy film. But while Dominique Pamplemousse is a short game with two endings, the real originality is that 90% of the dialogue are sung. And in tune with the music.

Besides, even if the voice actors aren't The Voice, it's not breaking your ears because of false notes. Besides, the lines are funny so... And the credits are also original as everyone who backed the project has their names being spoken, rather quickly.

Anyway, for $4 dollars, you're not ripped. Don't expect to be the game of the year but still, a little indie crowdfunded game that is enjoyable.

TL;DR It's an acquired taste.



Are you one of those people who think quaint is adorable and nurse a private curiosity for all the quirks in this world like it’s a badge of honour? Well, then! This may be the game for you. But then again it may not be, as I'm one of those people and yet I still failed to enjoy this game.

If you received Dominique Pamplemousse: It's All Over When the Fat Lady Sings for free or in a random bundle, there isn't too much harm in trying it out. If that's not the case and for some crazy reason you're thinking of buying it, I desperately urge you to reconsider because I don't know what I've been doing for two hours listening to the horrendous singing in this point and click detective story.

I got my copy like a lot of others, through my Humble Bundle purchase. The content is exactly what you see in the game trailer above where you get to click on things and listen to the characters talk/give clues into the case you're on while you, as the player are immobilised while characters sing their hearts out with a monotonous atmosphere.

I played this for an hour on my own but then I closed it but when I tried to play it again the next day. It had failed to keep my progress so I spent the remainder of my time using a walkthrough to push through. I like to try and finish games but this one was more like, 'Come too far to turn back at this point...' I'd got stuck anyway as I hadn't thought to look under Devon's bed and was running around in circles. If you stick to reading/exhausting everything then you won't get stumped as easily as there is literally nothing that you can do wrong in this game to change an outcome. There is a choice at the very end but even that has little merit to game play so meh. This is still a preference of mine for point and click mystery titles as it keeps the experience pleasant (if a little boring) and away from unwarranted stress. I don't actually play this genre after becoming overly frustrated whilst playing Sam & Max Hit the Road as a little girl (even though it's now a classic).

My admiration for stop motion animated work like the world famous, Wallace and Gromit series as well as full length features such as The Boxtrolls is on constant overflow. But with Pamplemousse it is akin to watching a tragic and horrific instalment of musical theatre and not being able to up and leave because you're lodged smack in the centre of a hot, stuffy hall along with all the other people who also are not enjoying themselves but ended up stuck there. I can only imagine how hard the creator worked to make this so I'm appalled at myself for having to leave such a negative review but as a game this feels more like those demo CDs you used to get for free in the 90s after buying some other popular game.

What's great is that you can multitask while in game, though. It opened in my Adobe Flash Player and so I could keep it running and minimise it while checking my email or I could keep focused on the story while eating dinner. You can also click to fast-forward/skip the talking in between though you have to put up with all the singing.

The story is all right and the characters are likeable. It was fantastic to see a genderqueer protagonist and also watch how the other characters started flailing at whether Dominique was "a girl or boy". It has light humour but you'll have to lower your expectations more and also find a way to get past the horrendous singing. I actually could take it no longer (though the voice acting was solid) and watched/played it like a black and white silent film by taking out my earphones and reading the subtitles for half of the game.

Though it is all right to play yourself if you're set on doing so and have the time as well as patience (the singing... it burns!!), the Dominique Pamplemousse guide by Burger is a good way to breeze through it in half an hour if you'd prefer.

Unfortunately, I dislike this game the most out of all the Steam games I've played so far. :( It's cute but I will not touch this game(?) ever again.
