After watching gameplay of Pendulo Studio's new game 'Yesterday', i was keen to see what other titles they had to offer. Looking at earlier titles from the company i wasn't exspecting too much in ways of gameplay/storyline as these games lacked the reviews that Yesterday had received. I'm not sure if i just wasn't paying attention when they came out, but this was the first i had heard of these titles.

For a point and click game 'The Next BIG Thing' did not dissapoint, providing a variety of areas and 'puzzles' to last a few solid hours. Being a somewhat indie title i didn't bank on the game being the standard 9hrs but was pleasntly surprized by the games 2-3hr playtime.

Some of the puzzles are insanely complex and require you to either be playing on easy for hints or to have access to a walkthrough (praise google!). As certain items open up key dialogue etc, without the game informing you as such.

Overall the story is rather weird but seems to work rather well with the genre. The game takes a while to get used to and seems to require some prior knowledge of controls as well as some minor character information. These things seemed easy enough to overcome and fill in the gaps yourself.

tldr: This is a very fun game for those who like a good puzzle/adventure/point and click! Also its on sale at the moment for $2.50 and its well worth the price tag.

It passes my recommendation for a short, entertaining point and click adventure game. The voice acting was decent, the animation was visually impressive, very cartoon like. I did have to use a walkthrough a couple of times because the solution was not obvious at all, but for the most part it was easy enough to figure out. The music was great. I did have a problem with the story though. You really don't know what's going on until about halfway through the game, which wouldn't be a problem if the game wasn't so short. I felt like this was a continuation of another game as the characters around you aren't really explained and its taken for granted that you know who they are. I almost gave it a downvote just because the backstory wasn't there to explain what's going on from the beginning and why you should care. Overall 6/10

A very well made "point-and-click" game. The characters are likeable and emotional, and the story is well done, though quite simple at times.
The game adds on a variety of ideas that help simplify some of the tediousness that normally stems from point-and click adventures, such as allowing your character to fast travel to a location by double clicking it, instead of having to sit and watch as your character crosses a large space simply to investigate something and skipping faster through dialogue by left clicking. The graphics are well done, in a cell shaded manner, and very aptly portray the emotions of the characters, seeming more so like an animated movie than a game.
The characters present are all very unique from each other, though I wish we got to see more of the ones that are so commonly mentioned, such as the Octopus Haring, who is mentioed to be a pretty bad guy. The game could have also done to be a bit longer, with a little more puzzles, and the ending before the final scene could have been a little more fleshed out, but I still finished the game satisfied. The final scene of the game was very well done, and actually caught me off guard. I applaud them for that one.

The Next Big Thing was a really fun and entertaining game to play throughout. It's relatively short and the puzzles are pretty easy, but the stylish graphics and witty (often underhanded) humor really makes it a joy to play. If you're looking for a light, quick adventure game to run through over a weekend, this should definitely be on your list.
