1-sentence review :
Nothing exceptional but the story and puzzles are pleasant, so if you're into point'n click adventures without too much expectations, you'll have a good time.

Pros :
- Decent story
- Decent puzzles
- Charming characters
- Good artistic direction, in cartoon style

Cons :
- There's no strong points to this game, there's no must-do nor must-see
- Lacks a bit of originality

If you like adventure games and don't give this game a chance, I find you to be very dis.....concerting.

All jokes aside, the game pays homage to era gone by with an enjoyable and comedic story. The puzzles are pretty straight forward, but if you do get stuck, there are lots of options to help you power through built into the game. I do have to mention that there is one puzzle in particular that is pretty rough. It's been a deal breaker to some on the game, but I looked up a tutorial on YouTube and made it through. I felt like the ending came pretty abruptly and I kind of wish for more explanation, but for the price I can't complain. This game is a no brainer to pick up during a Steam sale and it's a quick little story that you will thoroughly enjoy!

But for real, Dan Murray, what a guy!!

Otra gran obra de Pendulo Studios, unos gráficos estupendos, un humor genial y una trama intensa, aunque cabe señalar que en cuanto a nivel de dificultad este juego se queda muy atrás con respecto a las otras entregas de Pendulo Studios, mi cerebro se ha aburrido un poco jajaja

The next big thing es una buena aventura gráfica, al estilo clásico, pero que, sin embargo, da la sensación de que podía haber sido bastante más y se ha quedado a medio camino. El aspecto visual está bastante bien, así como las voces. Además por lo general tiene bastantes toques de humor y la combinación de objetos es más o menos lógica. ¿Entonces qué falla? Para empezar es bastante simple, en la mayoría de las pantallas apenas hay tres o cuatro cosas que mirar/coger. Debido a ello normalmente tienes pocos objetos en el inventario lo que hace que no tengas que pensar mucho. Por contra en algunas ocasiones tienes que hablar varias veces con alguien para que diga la frase justa que te permita hacer algo que estaba cantado que tenías que hacer pero que tu personaje se hacía el remolón. Eso unido a algunas fases del juego un poco rayantes, algunos bugs (muy muy pocos, pero que pueden hacer desaparecer algún objeto o que se cuelgue el juego) y el tema del idioma (que una compañía cree un juego en 4 idiomas y ninguno sea el suyo....) hacen que el juego se desinfle un poco. Dicho todo esto es un juego aconsejable en rebajas. Si te gustan las aventuras clásicas te entretendrá/gustará seguro, pero no lo recordarás como uno de los mejores. Nota 7,5

Although the first time I played it, the game crashed about 3/4 through and lost all the checkpoints, I'm still giving this one a positive review. I found out that I was not the only one with a such of a setback, but decided to start it again after a few months.

The storyline is somewhat stupid but it really doesn't affect that much in the level of entertainment of the game. Game is quite funny, and even though the puzzles aren't that difficult, it still gives out several hours of entertainment for a casual game that it is. Because of of the known random crash issues, I recommend you save your game from time to time. If you like point and click adventure games that are not fustratingly hard, this is a good one to try out. There is even spot indicator button, so when you get stuck, you can find out the spots you may have missed, and also a clever clue helper, that doesn't give you direct assistance but gives you something to think about you may have not though of or point you to a right room. Though all of this is something you barely need, because progressing the game is relatively easy when you use some common logic and try out stuff. It's a well built and entertaining piece of adventure game with a reasonable price tag.

Good ol' fashion point'n'click adventure. Goofy humour and quite crazy characters. Neither difficult or demanding on puzzles. Nice storytelling part, although story itself is not very complex. It's not Sherlock Holmes type of game, so we'll let it slide on story part.

Game does not have any major con's, but it's also not super inventive in any part.

Would rate it 6.5 of 10.

I recommend it to play in between the break of two more serious games to relax. :)

A pesar de que pone que he jugado pocas horas, esto es proque ya tenía el juego también en una oferta que salió directamente en la tienda de FXInteractive y allí sí está en español (primera cosa negativa para la versión en Steam...lo de siempre, juegos españoles o de distribuidoras españolas que estén en todos los idiomas menos en español; no lo entiendo).

Entrando en materia, decir que este juego (para el que no lo sepa) es la segunda parte del Hollywood Monsters, pero tuvieron que llamarlo así por temas de licencias, creo. El juego en sí es bastante corto y el argumento (o los personajes) o me acabaron de enganchar. Sus diálogos y bromas no me parecen ingeniosas, aunque la trama está bien hilada (pero como digo, más bien cortita).

Los puzzles son bastante mediocres (en cuanto a complejidad) y si no te dejas nada por mirar en los escenarios, podrás pasarte perfectamente todos ellos. Si se te atasca alguno es más probable que sea porque es un puzzle sinsentido que porque haya cierta dificultad. Al menos, los puzzles tienen su lógica, hay una estrategia clara y eso permite no tener que dar demasiados tumbos de un lado para otro sinsentido (aunque también influye en la duración del juego, claro).

Los diálogos están plagados de interjecciones y expresiones sin sentido (cuantos ea! puede haber a lo largo del juego?) que hace, una vez más, que sea difícil sentirte dentro del juego. No sé, para mí lo peor que puedo decir de un juego, y con este me ha pasado, es que me ha dejado muy muy "frío". Creo que no aporta nada en especial.

No entro a valorar gráficos o banda sonora, porque tampoco me parece lo que más se busca en este tipo de juegos, aunque no es de lo peor que tiene (es el típico estilo de Pendulo, como los Runaway). Me da la sensación de que, es como si hubieran querido aprovechar el tirón de su saga más conocida, para extender otra saga famosa que tenían por ahí.

No me ha gustado demasiado la interface. Eso de tener que desplazarse hasta arriba para sacar una barra a la que luego pulsar para sacar el inventario cada vez...me parece algo obsoleto. Creo que los ratones y teclados ya incorporan las suficientes mejoras para aprovechar esto en beneficio de las aventuras (por ejemplo, en ese sentido, el sistema de inventario del deponia me parece fabuloso. Cuesta adaptarse un pelín, porque es innovador, pero es lo más rápido y eficaz, usar la rueda para bajar y subir el inventario, o incluso atajos del teclado). Por cierto, los que sois fans de combinar cosas en los inventarios para resolver puzzles, iros olvidando, porque en este juego, pocas combinaciones veréis...es más todo de usar "tal cual".

En definitiva, creo que no recomiendo este juego porque, como digo, no me parece que aporte nada. Si lo encontráis en una buena rebaja, pues...bueno, es una aventura gráfica más que jugar o si "comulgáis" con los protagonistas, supongo que el juego se verá desde otro punto de vista, pero no es mi caso.

The Next Big Thing, is a point and click adventure game developed by Pendulo Studios. Being released in February of 2011 on both PC and iOS devices.

Gameplay in TNBT is your standard point and click action. You can walk around the areas fairly freely, allowing you to interact with objects and talk to other characters in the game. Obviously with all point and clicks the game play is not why you are playing. The puzzles in the game are somewhat entertaining as well, some of them really make you think, but are not so obscure that you have no chance of working them out. I had to resort to a guide for a few of them, but that is more than can be said for other Point and click titles out there. The game’s UI is one of the better I have seen in this genre, it is very easy to navigate and to select objects and use them in different ways. Even though the game doesn’t have any sort of in game tutorial, there is no real need for one since it is all so self-explanatory.

The game has a really nice art style. Whilst the game does have “cut scenes”, this is done in the same style and effect as the actual real time stuff. You can only really tell a difference with the frame rates. The character animations are all fantastic too; there isn’t one weird looking walk, or strange facial expression to be seen here, a very nice looking game in my opinion.

As with all good point and click games, you should expect a half decent story, well The Next Big Thing certainly delivers there. I went into the game expecting it to be a sort of political tale, I was wrong. The plot is set Los Angeles in an alternative reality. The two main characters, Murray and Allaire are both detectives and you set on the assignment to cover a kidnapping and conspiracy. There is some witty banter between the two characters, and this is what drew me into the game right from the get-go. The dialogue between all characters is all top of the range and I was overwhelmed with how good they all sounded. The story does have a few clichés, but overall it is captivating enough that it kept me engaged right until the end.

There isn’t a real difficulty level to this type of game. It is only hard if you cannot work out how to progress with puzzles. But like I said above, none of the puzzles are so strange and obscure that you cannot work them out by using a little bit of thinking juice. This is something which I admire in point and click games nowadays and even though some may be a little let down by this, The Next Big Thing is a casual experience.

The full story took me just about seven hours to get through – for a point and click game I think that is just about the right length, it allowed the game to reach an end which tied up most loose ends, and it leaves you wanting more of the same, without over staying it’s welcome. There isn’t any replay ability sadly since it is very linear.

I didn’t run into any major technical problems during my time playing. The game runs at all resolutions and given that the game is mostly pre-rendered graphics, it can run on any type of hardware (it’s an iOS game so….). The only slight problem I had, was that the game doesn’t lock your cursor in the game’s window; if this was any other game than a point and click, this would have been a major issue, but since it is a slow paced adventure game I can forgive it there; but honestly in this day and age, these types of issues should be mopped up.

The Next Big Thing is an absolutely stellar game and one that fans of the genre should really be checking out. The game’s interesting story line and good looking art style, on top of some quality voice acting, you can’t really go wrong with checking this title out. The price tag of £6, 99 is well and truly on point with the amount of content and quality of it on show as well, so definitely picks it up when you can.

Tom's Score Card
1) Stay away
2) Not Recommended
3) Only recommended when on sale
4) Recommended
5) Highly recommended
6) This is a must play

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.

A unique Point&Click adventure game.

The Next BIG Thing is a good Point&click adventure game. I'm glad I found this game because a PC magazine recommend it, and yes, this game is good.

Where to start? If you're a lover of Point&Click games, you don't want to miss this one. It has a wacky puzzles, weird mysteries, and a lot things you will love.

It gave me a wonderful experience during playing it. Well, it's short, you can finish it with 4-5 hours, but hey, with a good story and experience you will get, it will worth it.

It is really a good game. Something you don't want to miss if you're a Point&Click games lover, and a good start if you're new to Point&Click adventure games.

9/10

8/10 Pendulo is fab. Pendulo loves us all.
Full disclosure: I've had a number of jobs on horror/b-movies, this game was recommended to me by a director I worked with.
The Next Big Thing is a very well put together Point-n-clicker set in a schlock B-movie world. with a style and a sense of humour ideally suited to the setting. The story is very good and makes as much sense as anything in that world. Play as 2 very different characters through different chapters, solving puzzles in different ways. The graphics are high quality, well animated, and fit together. Sounds are good, music is good enough to listen to through the game. Dialogue is well acted and natural sounding, so an advantage over Daedalic there.
The only downside is that it's now over. It was short, and I don't see myself going back to it again. The story's done in a few hours, and there's no sequel hook, which kinda limits the bang-for-buck. Look out for it in a sale.

The Next BIG Thing is one of the funniest, quirkiest adventure games that nobody's ever heard of. The characters are great and it has touches that are reminiscent of the old classics of the genre. While the puzzles can be a bit difficult to figure out, the game as a unique hint system that will usually set you on the right course. Whether you love adventure games, comedy, interesting characters or a just good story, you owe it to yourself to check this out. (There's even a demo!)

La version française de ce commentaire vient après.

It is a really funny game! If you an adventure and point clicker gamer, this is one for you. A big bunch of crazy dumb monsters, some good jokes and well-made characters and you're in ;o) Some nice puzzle to go through. Some are tougher than others, but all in all it’s not a hard game. You have to be careful to every details in each scenery you’re going through (for instance, some of the things you will notice, that could be useful further in the game).

Also you will going to play two different parts which make this game more interesting as you will have to deal with the temper of each one.

The story is well made with some original development during the game.

Overall, it is a game in the vein of Pendulo Studio and what If I may say so, a nice Lucasart revamp. Hope to see some more (like the Runaway saga)!

-------------------------------

C’est vraiment un jeu très marrant! Si vous êtes un joueur de jeu d’aventure en point and click, alors c’est un jeu pour vous. Un bon nombre de monstres idiots et fous, de bonnes blagues et des personnages bien fait et vous y êtes ;o)
De bons puzzles à passer. Certains sont plus durs que d’autres, mais l’un dans l’autre, ce n’est pas un jeu très difficile. Vous devez faire attention à tous les détails dans chacune des scènes que vous allez traverser (notamment, pour certaines choses que vous allez voir, cela pourra vous servir plus tard)

Aussi, vous allez jouer deux personnages différents ce qui rend le jeu plus intéressant du fait que vous aurez à composer avec le caractère de chacun.

L’histoire est bien faite avec un développement assez original durant le jeu.

En conclusion, c’est un jeu tout à fait dans la trempe de Pendulo Studio et si je puis le dire, un beau clin d’œil à Lucasart. J’espère en voir d’autre (comme la saga Runaway) !
