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.”

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.

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.

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.

Dominique Pamplemouse is a musical point and click adventure game done in a bizarre claymation style. It's a detective story that is driven by dialog, a lot of which is sung. I thought the singing was bad, but self-aware and confident, and that added to the experience or sort of a weird interactive cabaret made up of clay dolls. I really liked that it dealt with LGBT themes, and this is the first video game I've bought that had an openly queer main character. This game has me hopeful that characters such as Dominique might reach more mainstream gaming someday. The game's biggest strength is its sincerity and its weirdness. I beat it in one sitting of an hour and a half. Recommended if you want a really niche indie game completely unlike anything else Steam has to offer.

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).
