I have loved the Pendulo Studios' games I've played so far (The Runaway series). They've all been corky humorous with likeable characters and excellent artwork. This game follows in the same vein, but have stepped up the wackiness and plot-line compared to the previous games. They might have taken it a slight bit too far in this one, but I still enjoyed it immensely. I found it to be a bit short, which is "dis....concerning", and a bit too easy.

It seems to me that this was planned to be a first of a new series, as the ending opens up for a sequel. And I find myself hoping that a sequel will eventually show up. But if it does, I also hope that they make it longer and tone down the wackiness just a little.

If you are into point & click adventure games close to the old school stuff this is a no-brainer. It is cheap and definitely worth your money and time. It should even be possible to get it dirt cheap during a sale.

I can only rate it a 7 out of 10 because of its length (or lack thereof :oP).

Happy gaming

First you'd think the plot is all about some elections and politics when you look at the name and icon. How interesting that could be? Fortunately, the cover is misleading and core of the game is solving the mystery. I liked the wacky characters and nice hint system which tells your current agenda, so you never have to ask yourself "why am I here? what I'm doing here?". The only negative and very annoying aspect is that ♥♥♥♥ing "Ayo! Aya!" thing everybody is shouting. What damn "Aya"? Why not "Hi!" or "Goodbye!"?

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.

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.
