This game is a ♥♥♥♥ing piece of ♥♥♥♥. This ♥♥♥♥ing game is so ♥♥♥♥ing bad I have never raged so god damn much to myself on how ♥♥♥♥ing awkward, how ♥♥♥♥ing benign the ♥♥♥♥♥♥ acting is.

Please ♥♥♥♥ing kill yourself for giving it a good rating, this game is legit the worse mistake a mother could make if this was her child. If this game is recognized as a AAA title is when the fourth horseman arrives and ♥♥♥♥ing kills us all.

This is the worst ♥♥♥♥ing game every ♥♥♥♥ing created, the music, the acting, the scary clay fake pieces of dog ♥♥♥♥ characters are annoying, and oddly autistic.

All the negatives:

-Bad singing
-Bad characters
-Extreme edgyness
-Extreme case of hipster trash
-Bad situations that will never happen unless you are 14 years old
-Hurrendous clay work
-All around autistic, convienent situations that are ♥♥♥♥ing rediculous.

Legit, ♥♥♥♥ this game, and ♥♥♥♥ the creator. If this was a horror game, I'd give it a 2/10, but it's an "adventure" game, so it's a ♥♥♥♥ing -1/10

A very short and easy game. I liked the unusual and offbeat setting and atmosphere. I'm a big fan of musical theatre and opera and such, so I enjoyed the music and singing of the characters. I think the off-key singing was a bit intentional and I didn't really have any issue with it. I felt it gave the music some variety and character. The story is just ok and the end was a bit abrupt. Get it on sale.

I tried really hard to like this game, because it's so different, has a (female? nobinary? transgender?) lead, and is supposedly full of witty musical numbers, but I couldn't do it.

One of the first problems I noticed was that you can't skip singing during many parts of the game. I read very quickly, and so more often than not I skip ahead once I'm done reading text even if the character is still talking-- but I couldn't do that with this game. I understand that skipping would have ruined the rhythm of the songs etc., but really, there was no rhythm in the first place.

I appreciate where the game was trying to go (discussing gender equality, sexism, a horrible music industry, etc.), but it was just really, really strange. A claymation musical with gameplay centred entirely around dialogue options sounds like a not-great idea-- not necessarily bad, but not great-- but when the singing is bad and the claymation looks a bit hellish, I think that you're going to have a bad time with a game. It's also rather short, so I suppose if you really wanted to see what it was about, you could buy it and then return it immediately (I doubt you'll keep it in your library). It can be a good game with some major fixes, but right now I don't think it's worth buying unless you pick it up in a Humble Bundle with some good games.

I don't want go too much into detail about this, but be asshured that "Dominique Pamplemousse: It's All Over Once The Fat Lady Sings" is a short but very charming adventure. Look at the trailer and you know if you like it or not. The background music is catchy as hell and the singing delightfully cringy. Yeah, it's kinda short, the puzzles are incredibly easy and it has next to none replay value. On the other hand it its comparatively cheap and if you are anything like me, you'll have a blast.

tl;dr: recommended.

I am a huge fan of anything stop-motion animated, I enjoy musicals, and bizarre indie games are a guilty pleasure for me. It should have been impossible for me to dislike this game, but instead, it ended up being one of the worst I've ever played. I really and truly wanted to give this game the benefit of the doubt, but try as I might, I could not find a single redeeming quality.

The first thing that hits you is the singing. To call the singing 'music' would be quite generous indeed- the choice of notes breaks every musical convention, but that is overshadowed by the fact that the voice actor can't hit a note to save her life. The rhythm is all but indiscernible, and the rhyming is strained at the best of times. The fact that they're selling the soundtrack is a smack in the face.

The stop-motion is rough as well... it seems like the developer only chose stop-motion because drawing the characters would have actually been more time-consuming. There is a fine line between “artistically simplistic” and “shoddy,” and this game qualifies as the latter.

The game says it's about gender and the economy, but the only mention of gender is a running gag that nobody knows the gender of the main character. My suspicion is that the developer has some personal opinions on gender ambiguity, and I can sympathize with the sentiment, but it seems tacked onto the game, and serves no real purpose towards the plot. Games with political undertones have their place, especially in the indie community, but it has to be done well. In that respect, this game fails miserably.

My final advice is this: don't play the game. But if you do, just to see what it's about, don't allow yourself to think “it's starting out bad, but it'll probably get better!” It doesn't. Feel free to quit at any time... you're not missing anything.

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.

The looks of the game might make it look as creepy and shady, but is overall a very basic detective story which only lasts for an hour. Is a solid experience which tries to work as a musical, and thanks to its short length the constant singing won't become tiresome. Is not a complicated game and overall very easy to follow, making it more of a 'click to continue story' rather an adventure game.

However the game runs in Flash and has some bugs. In my case i got a gamebreaking bug which made me restart the game. And since you can't skip singing dialog i had to end the final scene watching it in a playthrough rather spend another hour of the same.

Is a game not really worth the time for its gameplay or plot, but atleast tries to be unique and somehow achieves it. If anything having a main character of ambiguous gender is greatly welcome nowadays.

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.

Эта игра очень даже хороша.
И пусть она слеплена "на скорую руку" у игры есть множество интересных моментов. Да, она линейная. Сюжет постоянно ведет игрока к разгадке. Но не в этом соль. Главное - это диалоги. Здесь они представленны в виде оперного пения (или что-то наподобии, я не разбираюсь). И эта музыка, играющая на заднем плане, и весь, в принципе, сюжет очень необычен и интересен. Подобных игр очень мало, если они вообще существуют. Думаю, что создателям стоит создать нечто похожее, но уже гораздо лучше. Надеемся :)

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.

Wish I could recommend this game as the art style is very unique, and the game is a decent adventure to play through once -- but the big gimmick in this game is that just about every second line of dialogue is sung... and it is absolutely horrible to listen to.

Sad that they couldn't get people who actually can SING to do the voices. The performances range from awkward to painful.

It's a game that requires no skill, or thought which can be relaxing, or boring depending on the person. Me, I found it boring. There's no challenge when you can only click what they let you click when they let you click it, and your clicks can't affect the outcome of the game. You're a spectator here, not a player. I would describe this as an interactive music video rather than a game. You will spend 80% of your time watching shoddy claymation figures (an aesthetic choice, I assume, rather than a lack of skill... I hope) talk-sing tuneless songs with straightforward, uncreative lyrics. The aesthetic was half my motivation for purchasing the game, but I have far less appreciation for it now that the whole experience feels lackluster, and lazy. I'm sure a lot of hard work went into the game, and I don't really mean to disparage the makers, it's just that because the game is so underwhelming it soured me on everything. Point-and-click games can have depth, and challenge, but here the challenge is enjoying the show. I couldn't.

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.

So that trailer looks pretty cool right? Well you're probably alright stopping there. Not to jump on the negative review train; the game is a pretty harmless and innocent hour and a half with nothing egregious, but what's in the trailer is pretty much all there is to the game, albeit with a predictable detective story tacked on.

First off let me just list off why the game intrigued me enough for an impulse buy, so we can compare expectations and see if the game actually lives up to them. I bought this game because:

-it's a musical
-it's claymation
-its themes include gender, which is particularly tender and interesting to me
-it apparently did well in IGF nominations
-it's only an hour and a half long, which for someone with a massive backlog is actually an incentive

Now that I've played it, my positives are:

-it's one continuous musical adventure, with each screen change being accompanied by new music. The vamp technology
leading into each character's singing parts isn't perfect but is cool nonetheless.
-it has a lot of trombone

...And that's about it. Let's break this down further.

The musical element is the game's most unique and as mentioned above, works well enough. I don't actually have a huge problem with the "grating" voices: to me it along with the point and click mechanics create somewhat of a nostalgic experience. It really feels like a stage show, which is neat. At the same time, there's nothing particularly complex about the compositions, and the game doesn't really embrace the "musical" idea fully, it's just kinda there.

The claymation is very crude and pretty much a gimmick. It's very low resolution assests with no graphic options to speak of.

The gender theme isn't near as prominent as I expected and rather forced, thankfully it's not offensive but it's also not trailblazing.

As far as gameplay goes there's very little to speak of, just exhausting dialogue options. This isn't inherently bad, there are great games like Attack of the Friday Monsters that use this so as to not feel gamey or proprietary in any way. But that's the thing, you'll still be navigating basic menus for most of it so the fact that this is a very shallow, simple game will always be in the forefront of your mind. That said, it is simple enough for anyone to play and you won't get frustrated or stuck.

The story is the primary focus of the game, and it's pretty disposable. For one it's indulgent; you're thrown in with little context and immediately expected to care about the characters with no concept to guide the experience. The game constantly repeats information you've just heard back to you. It's pretty humorless; there are bits of overdone social commentary here and there that are really random and don't fit in with anything else: this is unfortunately the extent of the game's themes. And in general it's all pretty incidental, with a lack of finese to the storytelling, and it's just not at all cohesive! For all its twists and turns it never does anything unseen in other point and clicks or noir. The ending at least had potential to satisfy and bowtie all the elements but it feels unfinished, like the last 15 minutes are part of a different game.

So yeah in the end it's just kinda boring, you know? It's one of those cases where you have to take a step back and realize that just because it's cool as a trailer doesn't mean it'll be cool as a game, especially since it never explores any of its enticing elements. Still, on sale for a quick runthrough you can do a lot worse.

PROS: Stop-Motion is an interesting medium, I would like to see this explored further in the future. The music itself is not bad, and I'm glad that they took a legitimate swing at composing their own pieces.

CONS: This game was crowdfunded, and it's certainly not 10,000USD worth of work. Even the basic act of being able to get commentary of all surroundings in a room is not available. The voices and dialogue are extremely bad, even when it's not intending to be. Ending is absolutely terrible. Very little work within the same scene is done. It's a lot of back and forth between locations.

WORTH: The story can easily be beaten within less than two hours because of the limited nature of the maps and the lack of interactivity. (My play-time was padded by working to make a guide.) If you aren't getting this in a bundle or at a serious discount, you will be disappointed.

OVERALL: Betrayals of trust like this will be the death of sites like Kickstarter and Indiegogo.

Stop to imagine a world where it's possible to see something so visually offensive, that it actually hurts you physically. This game attacked my every sense, throwing my brain into a DBZ-like battle. Except my brain was Krillin and the game itself was all of the major villains fused together. I became ill while playing this game, so much that I had to go watch The Lion King and wonder what I was doing with my life.

This game is not good. I don't think I've ever wanted to remove my hard drive and wash it with soap after playing a videogame before.

I absolutely adore showtunes. My CD collection is almost entirely made up of Broadway cast recordings. I also like to play video games. A musical video game sounded like a great concept, and it still does. This is hardly a musical, though, because there aren't any real songs. There's dialogue that's written in rhyme and just happens to be sung. There are no melodies, and that's the joke. And this joke becomes very grating very quickly. There's only so much off-key singing you can take!

The story isn't very interesting. Trying to solve the mystery will pose a slight challenge, but you'll still get through it in about an hour and it wont have any lasting impact on you. There's no replay value unless you really think the game's funny, and personally, I do not. There are a few funny jokes, but it's not nearly on the level of The Stanley Parable or even Octodad.

Why does this exist? Why does it only last an hour and a half? Why is most of that time spent listening to characters sing badly? Why are there only two puzzles in it that aren't just pressing every dialog option until it works? Why are the two puzzles so simple a new born could do it in under a minute each? Why is this five ding dong dorras? Why would anyone pay for this when you could buy anything else for the same amount of money and literally get 10 times the content?

Dominique Pamplemousse, what a strange game (and title!).

The game felt more like a musical than an actual game. There was very little input on my part while playing, most of my time was spent listening to some off-key singing. The visuals are probably the game's strongest point. All of the characters are made of clay and the animation is in a stop motion format, which is kinda cool, but not enough to make up for the gameplay. The game's story is not that interesting either. It's not a bad story, but it's far from a good one.
