Dominique Pamplemousse in: "It's All Over Once the Fat Lady Sings!" is a unique and offbeat stop motion musical detective adventure game, Dominique Pamplemousse, the titular protagonist, is a down-on-their-luck private investigator of ambiguous gender only one rent payment away from homelessness. When the CEO of a major record company shows up asking Dominique to locate a missing pop star, taking the job appears to be the straightforward thing to do. However, as things are never quite as they seem in these kinds of stories, Dominique winds up framed for a crime they didn’t commit, bringing to surface their mysterious past and the events that led them to take up shady detective work in the first place.

Oh, and did I mention it’s a musical? With singing and everything?

Dominique Pamplemousse was nominated for 4 awards at the 2014 Independent Games Festival, and was an Official Selection at IndieCade in 2013.

But wait, there's also a sequel! In Dominique Pamplemousse and Dominique Pamplemousse in: "Combinatorial Explosion!", our favourite genderqueer private detective discovers that, through the power of multiple endings from the previous game, they have been cloned! Join the two Dominiques as they traverse surreal locations and interrogate increasingly bizarre characters in order to answer a very important question: which one of them is canon?
