The Next Big Thing is the latest game by Péndulo studios and the sequel/remake/re-envisioning to one of their earliest games Hollywood Monsters.
It very well might be the best game in their lineup. I am normally not a big humour in games person but The Next Big Thing had me laughing a few times and the characters are at a whole new level of charisma and uniqueness; I personally cannot even think of a character that I did not like, though there are a few that really stood out, including a gardening robot obsessed with death and a big monster who writes poetry about pain (and is always looking for inspiration).
So while I would not say that The Next Big Thing is a great game, it is a very good game that obviously has benefited from a team of professional experienced developers and would be both a game I would recommend highly to any fans of The Runaway series and to anyone as the first game to try from this developer.
