作为一个通关+看了全部俩结局之后连卡都没挂完的游戏,个人只推荐在慈善包的时候购买。比起一刀包仨游戏还送原声,这游戏的Steam版无论是定价还是DLC都充满了骗钱的气息,不多吐槽了。

游戏本身算是有点意思的点点点小品,能有个6分吧……尽管看起来像是个画面粗糙的要死的B级黑白恐怖片,其实是个有点向不同种类的音乐形式致敬的黑色幽默侦探故事。本作的特色是叙事手法,但是里面有些梗非音乐发烧友很难Get到(其他玩家的评测也提及了这个问题),再外加过于有特色的画面和非常一般的剧情,使得评测区里差评一片。

优点:
  • 剧情:6.5,剧情过短-0.5。全流程即使看完两个结局也只有3-40分钟,不过中间的小逆转还是有点惊喜的。主角DP(就是游戏名)是个穷的没钱交房租的伪侦探,为交房租接受了一个找歌手的任务。尽管看上去是个侦探故事,但实际上是个 学术狗怒讨专利费的故事,话说这里面的大反派最后还给主角提供了个Job Offer,比起某国家自然科学一等奖来说真是不知道要高到哪里去了 。游戏最后有两个结局,依然是传统的钱和良心二选一,没什么意外。主角的设定非常有趣,我第一次知道Dominique 这个名字是男女通用的……话说从声音确实判断不出主角的性别,外表就更别想了= =
  • 音乐:7分,有创意的叙事手法+0.5,唱歌跑调-0.5。游戏的叙事有点像音乐剧,隔三差五就要唱几句,不同人物的主旋律对应不同时代的音乐风格。不过作为乐盲而言,很难听出来捏他的是什么歌,而且确实有点跑调……不过原声还是蛮好听的

缺点:
  • 解谜:4分。本作的解谜也和没有差不多,好听点是简单,难听点吧……反正社区里有指南,卡关的各位可以自行查看。
  • 画面:4+1辛苦分。本作的画面……就算是黑白复古恐怖片+粘土动画也够简陋的……不过粘土动画的动作需要一帧一帧摆,给这个工作量一个额外加分吧。
  • 其它:本作是自动存盘,通关之后选Continue可以看另一个结局。游戏是Flash作品,没法用F12截图;而且切Steam界面有时候会死机,这两点需要稍微注意一下。

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.

AUDIO: Cringe-worthy                                 AESTHETIC: Experimental
MEMORABILITY: So-so                               WORTH: Steep Discount

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.

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

                                                    
SCORE: 3/10

you might like this game if:
- you like the music (i did, mostly)
- you get the humor of the "wrong" singing (i did)

you might not like the game if:
- the music is not for you
- you don't get the "wrong"singing humor
- puzzles are an important part of an adventure game (it has 2 or 3 very easy puzzles)

this game is very linear, except for one dialog option in the end. not even choices what to answer in the dialog tree.
in the end it didn't feel like there was enough "game" or interactivity.

I got this from a weekly Humble Bundle because I wanted Betrayer and Naissannce. In addition to those games made by actual game developers, I got this flash "game" about "gender and the economy," made by an internet panhander who calls herself a programmer but has never made anything outside of Flash.

Really glad I paid $3.50 for five games and only obtained this incidentally, because it's barely a game. It's more like a slideshow. It goes a baby step beyond Depression Quest-style walls of text and clickable prompts (several of which were already produced by Ms. Kiai), and ups the ante with annoying, inept singing and repetitive, if quirky BGMs. Other than that it's basically the same thing.

"Interactive fiction" really shouldn't be classed as part of gaming. The very definition of a "game" requires win and loss conditions, use of hand-eye coordination, tests of reflexes, resource management, something, ANYTHING which could amount to actual gameplay.

This, on the other hand, is simply a story being fed to you, with little interaction or thought required on your part. Even the Walking Dead, often mocked as a walking simulator, has moments where you must react quickly or fail, and divergence in its story.

Not that I'm against the idea of interactive fiction pieces, but this trend of interactive fiction involving sociopolitical commentary, social justice issues, etc caters to a specific niche audience and really doesn't lend itself any credibility. People play video games as escapism, not to be reminded of the issues which plague their daily lives, or to be lectured on ♥♥♥♥ they don't care about like "queer issues."

And I say this as someone who fits into the "queer community" by every definition of the word. I don't want to be pandered to. This is cutesy quirky pandering for the Tumblrina crowd, who didn't play or make games until they realized they could be used as a soapbox.

There are two kinds of gamers today: those who care about gameplay, and those who want to fundamentally redefine what a video game is. Guess which camp the creator and applauders of this "game" sit in?

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.

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.

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.

I'm trying not to be nasty about this game because it was made mostly from donations on indiegogo (they even mention every person that donated in the credits which I thought was a nice touch). And from what I've researched the game developer is not super experienced so I want to put this into the 'it's the first game I made' pile... I mean heck the website said it was mostly filmed with a freakin iPad. So lets not be too judgemental.

! That being said ! The singing is truly awful, but it's funny. When they started singing, and they were out of key and the stop motion animation looked like it came from high school students my initial reaction was - urg. However, as I proceeded the terrible singing and non sensical lyrics became funny and charming. What I did enjoy was the music. Check out this youtube clip https://www.youtube.com/watch?t=17&v=2mWDV5IiwRc of the band responsible for the soundtrack.

This game takes at the most two hours to complete so don't expect complex gameplay.. in fact don't expect any gameplay. However this is a good case for Dominique Pamplemousse because I swear if this game was even ten minutes longer I would have punched my computer. It is meant to be a short game... It's kinda like that one friend you have that's fun to be around in small doses because they're silly and quirky but if you spend more than an hour or two with them you're ready to pull their tongue out and feed it to the wolves.

Worth the experience if the game is free or if it comes with a nice little bundle. NOT WORTH $5 ON ITS OWN

5/10

[edit@05/08/15: To be fair, I played this for more than an hour, really trying to give it another chance (for the third time). I still stand by everything I say/said about it. It is REALLY bad.]

I love claymation, and I love adventure games, but I hate musicals.
I hate them with a passion. Especially bad ones.
I get what they were going for, but I am afraid they did not hit the right mark for me.
Maybe it is just because I hate musicals? I mean, if you look at my library of games, I clearly like "bad" games.
This was definately a bad game, but I found it remarkedbly bad, even muted (because then I couldn't hear anything--which was a blessing, but it is pointless playing something if you have to mute it to enjoy it). And muting it did not make me enjoy it anyway.

I give it a 2 out of 10. 2 is for the cute claymation and obvious love put into making this. -8 is for the ♥♥♥♥♥♥♥ constant, awful singing. I "think" this was supposed to be the humor appeal of the game, but I found it very irritating, and not very clever besides.

My apologies to the developers.. I really wanted to like this, and I wanted to give it a good review, but maybe on your next game you should get a better writer, and remove ALL of the singing. Especially THAT type of singing. I'm seriously not trying to be mean.. I look at all of this potential and it deeply saddens me to see it wasted in this way.

This game is not worth $5.49 CAD. I found it novel but the novelty wore off and got boring, even in this short game. I found the game-play too linear for my tastes. The music is intentionally bad but that does not make it less annoying. Overall I was unsatisfied with the game but it does have it's charm. The only problem is: a game needs more than charm to keep most customers satisfied.

The reviews seem to be love or hate, but I'm set on "generally charmed". Dominique Pamplemousse is a game that oozes hipster indie style, and that's not my interest. But the game is short and sweet enough that I'm happy with it as a bonus to a Humble Bundle. Check out some clips to see if you have any interest.

The game is flawed but charming, short but a complete tale. I normally hate on Flash designs, but the game is short enough to complete in one sitting (30-60 minutes) so save-loss doesn't hurt so much. The game reminds me of the 90's; the modern environment would never fund the quirky games developed then. Gameplay is simple point-click adventure, but nothing is really clunky or poor. The singing can be annoying but never bothered me enough to stop it. The story was odd but generally worked.
My main irritation: Why frame Dominique to be removed from the scene? The easier alternative was to not hire that detective in the first place. Dominique already resigned to losing the research years ago.

I enjoyed the game, more than others which I've gotten for free or in a bundle. I'll admit, the game should probably be fully free but there are free methods to enjoy the game if you really need. The game could be polished and improved, but I would be interested in a sequel. It's odd and campy, but I found it entertaining for an evening. I'd recommend a sale, but the game is unique enough that you should determine how much you're willing to pay yourself, no discount target from me this time.

I don't enjoy the singing. It doesn't sound nice to my ears (too warbly and off key for my taste) and slows the game down to a crawl. I'd like to be able to go at least at a walking pace.

I really enjoy the art style and the background music, it's clever and unique in my gaming experience. The story has potential, but I fear I won't get any further into it due to the frustratingly sloooow pace as the singing unfolds.

I tried to go back in and do more because I'm intrigued by the main character and the story. But I just can't take anymore of the singing. It's too slow AND its amateur, off-key tone is very hard for me to listen to. 31 minutes, that was all I could do.

I'm sorry, game! I really wanted to play you.

It's kind of fun but ultimately falls flat.
The visuals are OK - it seems to be a stylistic choice, but they don't do anything with it.
The music is OK - it's enjoyable but a lot of lines don't scan right.
The humor is OK - it's funny when it hits but a lot of times it misses.
The story is OK - it serves its purpose but is not exactly compelling.

I would like to see what the developer does going forward, but they haven't hit the right notes yet (no pun intended)

I enjoyed this game for the most part but Im not recommending as it is really not for everyone.
If you are anything like me then the ... interesting songs will get stuck in your head and drive you a bit mad.

It is fairly interesting though. Talks about the tough stuff, such as autotuning and gender ambiguty.
"Interesting" is probably the best way I can describe it. And then I remember the singing and cringe.
